Leopard is big this fall. So, I was bidding on these Louboutin leopard mules on eBay. I know, I know, the combo of the leopard, the platform, and the red heel and sole make them more than a little bit provocawhorative, but in a moment of shoe lust I wanted them. Anyway, moot point, I didn't win them. They sold originally for $615 at Saks, but I wasn't willing to go quite that high. Let's be real — how much wear could I actually get out of these. Where could I wear them, hehehe.
To alleviate my twin disappointment over not only losing out on these but on my disappointment at the Irregular Choice sale, I went browsing Zappos to see what they had for sale in Naughty Monkey, another of my favorite brands. Lo and behold, one of the first pairs I laid my eyes on were these:

Anyway, while these shoes are cute and buckles are an "In" thing this fall, I didn't end up getting these. I did, however, find a most yummy pair I had to get — these just ROARED their way to my heart:
