Red and black — a classic combo. I kept the red very minimal in this outfit (heels, nails) which gives the color more power and focus. I like the pseudo-toughgirl vibe offered by a motorcycle jacket and black skinny jeans, but the look is more interesting with an unexpected feminine twist (like bright heels). To break up the black, I wore a charcoal gray American Apparel tee that I’ve had forever and carried my LV bag (which doesn’t “match” at all, but that was intentional).
I picked up the heels on sale — the leopard print haircalf detail on the back sealed the deal for me. Good job, Pour La Victoire. After purchasing, I realized I don’t own any other pairs of red shoes. Which is funny, because I recall wearing ONLY red shoes when I was little — red ballet flats, red Doc Martens (whaaat..?), red Converse, you name it. Maybe I’ve lost some of my boldness over the years, but I think the five-year-old me would dig these.
PS: I put together a collection of pretty red heels at the very end of the post (some with leopard, too — like these!).
