Showing off my new booties - Leopard!

I know this is outfit is going to look goofy as can be, but I had to show off my new shoes and I did not want to change the clothes from what I wore earlier today. I have been wanting some leopard booties so badly. I have been looking at different websites just hoping to find something I could afford to buy. Well, I went on Shopbop and there were these leopard booties with a slightly pointed toe and they only had size 8 (my foot measures 6.5, but I always have to go up due to width.)  I had never heard of the brand before (Pencey) so I started doing some comparison shopping. Wow, they were a bargain so I jumped on them. At Neiman Marcus they are $275.00. I would never have paid that much for them. I was kind of scared to order them as they were a final sale-no return. I am so glad that I took the chance. They are exactly what I wanted but did not think I would be able to find. I kind of wanted to jump up and down after I tried them on and they fit!

Presenting my Leopard Booties!

Now for the outfit that the booties don't go with at all. I did have on my Think! Patent sandals which looked much better with the outfit.

Booties: Pencey - Shopbop
 I went to Dillards today because they had an extra 40% off all sale items. I got a blouse that I'd seen earlier this week and waited to see if it would still be there. I also got a pretty scarf with fall colors.

I also went to Kmart because I'd seen several of their ads in magazines and I wondered if they had really changed. I am kind of on the fence about their clothing. They had some really cute Jacklyn Smith skirts in the regular sizes (I thought of you, Pam), but for the most part the clothing is uninspired. Maybe they just don't have in the new fall merchandise. I did find a dress that I purchased (Sacramento, I was thinking of you) and a couple of jackets that were on sale and 50% off the sale so they were only $7.50 each. I probably shouldn 't have purchased them, but they were really cute and at that price they were too hard to pass up (I know I should've but I didn't.)

I am so excited to start thinking up outfits for fall to wear with my new booties. Do you have any new purchase that you are as excited about as I am mine?


  1. Wonderful! Love them.

    Thanks for the tip on Dillards- I hope the sale is still on tomorrow . . .

  2. Cute booties!! I love that fashion bloggers come in all ages and sizes. You rock!!!

  3. Sweet boots! An amazing deal for a super awesome pair of shoes. I could totally see them with yesterday's outfit. Besides, pattern mixing is very on-trend.

    I've bought so much lately in preparation for back to school, but I'm most looking forward to my custom Audra Jean harness, fall jacket and boots that are already in the mail.
