But not this time. This time it’s about the shoes and the dress and just feeling fabulous. But first, I am going to talk about the shoes. These Leopard Printed Suede Stiletto Heel Pumps arrived a few weeks ago courtesy of FSJ Shoes and I was super excited to style them, but also a little scared! I haven’t worn a heel this high in years and I wasn’t even sure that I could walk in these babies. But let me tell you, once I put this outfit all together and slipped on these sleek and sexy shoes, I felt my level of sass elevate tenfold. It was pretty amazing. At first, I was a little bit wobbly like a newborn fawn, but once I got my strut going, I was all super model-esque. And who doesn’t want to feel that way?

Now let me talk about the dress for a minute. I recently shared this dress in my Weekend Wish List: Torrid in both red and black. I recently bought it in black at Torrid Salmon Run Mall and quickly realized that it would be the perfect piece to showcase my new leopard print heels.
It was still on the cooler side of things when I styled this outfit and I needed a jacket. So I grabbed for my old reliable denim jacket that I bought years and years ago from Lane Bryant. I haven’t been able to find a denim jacket anything like this one in recent years, but Lane Bryant does currently offer some amazing cropped denim jackets.
Now I want to talk briefly about getting dressed for the sole purpose of feeling fabulous. This is an outfit that I would wear on a date night with the husband. In fact, I did wear the dress this weekend for date night but I styled it a little differently. If you follow me on Instagram then you may have already caught a glimpse of this dress on me with a different pair of amazing shoes! If you haven’t seen it, check it out here. I’m going to share a quick story with you all. I have gone out to a few bars in the past week and I was disappointed to see that people do not get dressed up to go out anymore. Way back when I was single and frequenting the bar scene, we got dressed. Like really dressed. And as a woman who feels fabulous when I am wearing fabulous clothes, I really enjoyed seeing what other women were wearing. I still do appreciate and admire other women’s outfits and I am quick to offer compliments to strangers. But seriously, in three visits to three different bars this week (that sounds like I have a drinking problem, doesn’t it?), I saw four women who were dressed to impress. FOUR women in three bars. That is all. So without bashing on all the others (because that is not my style), all I want to say is this…come on, ladies, step up your style game! I promise it will make you feel even more fabulous than you already are! And if you are lost or confused about how to do it, let me know. I will help you out! Or if you just need some style ideas, you can check out all of my favorite bloggers. They will surely inspire you.
But let’s get back to the shoes. These shoes are nothing short of the sexiest pair of shoes I own. If you are looking for a pair of killer statement shoes, look no further than FSJ Shoes. They have an amazing selection of leopard print heels, 4 inch heels in all styles, shapes, colors, and prints, and other stiletto heels. FSJ Shoes is based in China and I find that their footwear runs a little on the narrow side. I am usually a U.S. size 10 and sometimes a size 11. I ordered an 11 in these to be safe and they fit perfectly except for being a tad bit narrow in the toe. But the next size up would have been too big. They offer shoes sizes up to a U.S. size 15 for women.
