Dear ESB,

I may not have planned a single detail of my wedding yet, but one thing I do know is that...

I want to get married in LEOPARD PRINT SHOES. Priorities and all that.

Yes, I am after a pair similar to these beautiful Charlotte Olympia Love Dolly shoes (£620), only cheaper and lower. I'm already 5'11". An extra 6 inches and the "You may now kiss the bride" thing just won't work. That said I don't want flats, I want to strut not shuffle. Know what I'm sayin?

Thanks in advance,

British bride on the wild side

Cheap leopard print can look pretty cheap. Actually, so can expensive leopard print. Those Charlotte Olympia heels are FUG, imho.

How bout these Moschino Cheap & Chics?


Is £254.17 more in the ball park?

  1. I am a leopard print apologist and fully support leopard print heels + wedding dress. However I think the quickest way to make leopard print tacky is to add a high stiletto heel. I can't tell, are these ugly?

    They are still pretty sky-high, sorry. As a tall lady myself (5'10"), I sympathize.

    1. Hmmm, call me crazy but I think with the right dress, they could work. But maybe the leopard print itself is sort of too stretched out and wonky.

  3. How about snakeskin instead?

    In case you have size 5.5 feet, these are five bucks on eBay.

    1. If she's 5'11" and has size 5.5 feet she's probably a Barbie doll.

    2. the good news if she's a barbie is that she won't have to worry about peeing in a complicated dress.

    3. Hahaha, yes. Or wearing a bra!

    4. In the snakeskin vein, these Loeffler Randals have a similar vibe to leopard print, but they're not so towering.

      I'm also a fan of the Emerson Fry's, but I highly doubt a size 5.5 is going to work here.

    2. I'm on board with these. Although all depends on the dress. There is a fine line between Marilyn and Dolly.....

    3. Agreed. The shape is elegant and the print is more refined. Depends on the dress though!

    1. It's a leopard print shoe, I don't think that bow is suddenly making it tacky where it wasn't before.

  6. No leopard heels. all suggestions look cheap.

  7. Leopard print shoes are a fail-safe way to look back at your wedding pictures with your grandkids and think 'I made a huge mistake'. There are cuter, classier ways to incorporate leopard if it's really what you want. Always opt for 'cuter' and 'classier'.
