2014 VMAs Red Carpet Stars!







I’ll be honest… last night’s VMA show was quite disappointing.. in the red carpet arena that is. Taylor Swift… c’mon now… what was that mini-jumpsuit all about? Don’t get me started with KATY PERRY. Ugh… obscene. And I know most people liked Jennifer Lopez’s revealing little number… but all I was thinking was “Girl, you’ve been there and done that”. I hate to sound so rude in this post… but it’s the truth, I was not overly impressed. Let’s cross our fingers that tonight’s Emmy’s will be much better.

Now, although it may seem like I hated everything last night on the red carpet, there were a few that nailed it. And here we go…

Oh Leopard Sneakers How I Love You So…

Typical me…. I’m at Target with my hubby last week, and shopping for toilet paper and such… (I always wander off to the clothing + shoe sections)…. AND, that’s when I stumble on these puppies. I’ve been yearning for leopard shoes. It’s the one part of my closet that has felt really empty. I needed some sort of animal print shoe. And here’s where I take the “Man Repeller” stance… When I think of HOT leopard shoes, I think the more masculine the better. It just makes sense. Leopard in general is a very loud, controversial, sexy kind of print. So in order to tone down that “vavavoom” appeal, the more masculine the style of shoe with the print, the better.  The masculine form really takes away any small possibility of coming off as trashy + slutty. And so, I picked up this pair (Mossimo Supply Co.)… Oh, and did I mention they were on sale for $19. Oh, YES. Love me some Target.

And so in spirt of that, I’ve picked out some inspiration looks for how I’ll be rocking these new kicks.


Seriously how amazing are these shoes!?




Do you like that I paired it with stripes?
