Python Heels

I'm currently obessed with snakeskin right now! So much so, that I have a snakeskin dress, snakeskin shirt, and snakeskin clutch. Therefore, it was only right to add to the Collection with a pair of fabulous snakeskin shoes! Did some shopping on the weekend and snapped up these little leather beauties from Tony Bianco. This photo does not do them justice, they are divine!

I think they are meant to be similar to the Louboutin python pumps.

At over $1000 RRP, the cost per wear for this shoe would still be $1000, as I would frame them and be too scared to wear them outside!

Now I'll be the first to admit, this was a bit of an impulse purchase. It was love at first sight. I saw them, and just had to have them! I thought at first they might be a bit hard to style into an outfit, but I think as long as I keep the rest of the palette quite neutral and the shapes simple, they'll be able to be interwoven into quite a few outfits. I think these shoes will be great for all occasions including work, casual, and evening. Definitely cheap considering cost per wear.

WORK: Sleek tailoring in corporate approriate colours, encorporating blue tones into the outfit to "match" the shoes. Keep colours in block, no prints to clash with the snakeskin.

WEEKEND: Pairing these shoes with grey, white and black neutrals with a pop of colour to encorporate the shoes. Finish with silver minimalist accessories and a tote for a casual day look.

EVENING: Pairing these shoes with bright block coloured dresses in opposite tones, with patent and metal accessories in blacks, golds, and silvers.

The Celebrities all love a bit of snakeskin too! It seems they have all jumped on the trend, wearing a splash of snakeskin in their outfits.

If I was brave enough, I would totally copy this outfit below from head to toe. Those pants, goshhh!!! However, for me though, python pants is pushing the envelope a tad too far.
Krystal from This Time Tomorrow pulls it off effortlessly. She looks great!
