When I saw these leopard platform pumps by Prada pop up in the new arrivals section at Bluefly last month I knew I had to have them. I have another pair of leopard platform pumps without an ankle strap by Prada, but they feature a different type and color of leopard print. They are my most comfortable pair of pumps by far so I knew that these ankle strap ones would be well worth it. They are gorgeous and I think the ankle strap adds something a little extra to the look. I love it when I come across a shoe that is comfortable and sexy at the same time. The calf hair was in fabulous condition on the shoes as well. I have never had any problems with Bluefly, but I have heard from other people who won't shop there anymore.
I styled them in a classic way with a little black dress I found while cleaning out my closet. This dress was strewn on one of my closet shelves way in the back and it still had the tags. I remember getting it last year at some point from Saks, but the price escapes me. It has a sweetheart neckline and it is the perfect length if you are looking for a sexy little black dress. I have a thing for soft stretchy dresses like these and while going through all my clothes I really took notice of how many of these types of dresses I own. I don't need anymore, but at least little black dresses are classic pieces that don't really go out of style. I wore a vintage wrap style cuff in black and gold over the sleeve of the dress to add a touch of interest and play off the leopard in the shoes.
