Sometimes I Shop :: Lusting for Leopard

RIP my trusty leopard flats - Zoey the Pug got a hold of them and attacked them like they were her enemy. I have to admit, while they served me well, I was secretly a little excited when she destroyed them, because that meant I have an excuse to go get new ones.

That probably sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? Well, I don't mind admitting I'm a ridiculous person. When it comes to leopard flats, though, they're practically a neutral and therefore a staple. A printed flat instantly chics up a casual errand running outfit, so I'm now on the hunt for leopard! I'm willing to spend a little to get something really great, because I know I'll be wearing these a long time and if they're comfortable, reaching for them again and again. Here are a few pairs I'm eyeing right now.

What do you think? Are leopard flats a staple, or am I just justifying the purchase because my dog tore mine to shreds?? :)
