Lyddie vs the five inch leopard wedge

I've been on a quest for a leopard pump for a really long time. Not being able to find any that wouldn't slip off the back of my foot, I decided to focus my energies on finding a leopard sandal.

I ordered three pairs, Por La Victorie Helice platform sandals, Sam Edelman Jorgia wedges, and Sam Edelman Lucia sandals.

Because these brands run narrow, I bought a half size up on all three. The Por La Victories were still too narrow, which was a shame, because I adored the style. The Lucia Edelmans were super sexy, but with a 5" spike heel and only a half inch platform, I knew I would never get much wear out of them.
So I decided to keep the Jorgia Edelmans, the wedge and 11/4" platform made them the most wearable. But they are still really high for me.

Fortunately they were practically free because I had a $100 shopbop gift card and only had to pay $8. But, the price dropped again today, and now they are only $77. (So annoying when that happens!)

And obviously I bought those flat leopard sandals from Target as well, so now I have two pairs of leopard sandals.

  1. Beautiful - I was going to say how I love the ones in the middle before I saw your pics - I love the combination with the hunter green shirt. nice!

  2. The pair you kept is lovely. I love leopard.

  3. They look amaze balls - even if they are high...seriously, I love them!

  4. OH LOVE the ones you went with - those are SO fabulous!

  5. Loving the chic look! The green and white go so well together!!



  6. UGH! A price drop RIGHT after you buy something is the most horrible thing ever! The shoes look great on you though :)

  7. OMG!! I am loving them all! Great Fab Finds!

    Stay beautiful! *Smooches*


  8. I am loving your leopard sandals! I still want a pair of leopard-print shoes for myself! :)

  9. I am obsessed with finding just the right pair of leopard sandals for the summer. I love those wedges...they are leopard perfection!!

  10. I'm a big fan of Sam Edelman, so great choice with the wedge!

  11. Those are all great options. I just ordered some leopard wedges from payless, and now I can't wait to style them!

  12. Love them on you! I saw some crazy tall leopard print shoes at Target the other day. And I ALMOST bought them. Because you always rock the leopard print so well... I might have to go back for them soonish...

  13. those wedges are pretty rad but man that heel is high. I mean I know its a wedge so its a little easier to walk in but still I know my clumsy self would trip all over myself.

  14. What a story! I absolutely love the ones you choose :) they look fabulous in that outfit :) x

  15. Hooray! I was hoping you'd pick those middle ones as you talked about them. Those are definitely the coolest. They'll kick some butt fersure.

    There's something about green and leopard that always looks so nice. Maybe because it's like a leopard in its natural environment, or something. I don't know, but you look fabulous. :D

  16. those ones are actually my favorite
    they are pretty high, but oh so fabulous!

  17. YAY!!! The search is done!!! haha :D I love the ones you chose, and the outfit is great!!
    (and UGH! I hate when that happens, last time I did that I got an adjustment...why don't you email them to try and get a price adjustment :) )

  18. LOVE the ones you kept...so fun!

  19. I saw these on instagram ;) Looks great! Perfect outfit for them too

  20. Great choice!! I think I would have picked the same ones, although the other two look really nice as well..the ones you picked are more wearable...(I think)


  21. ooooh! I'm not a wedge lover but those wedges are hot! I think they are the first ones I ever love! Wish I could walk in them...

  22. What a stunning pair of wedges - I'm sure you'll get used to the height, as far as heels are concerned, it's all a matters of practise :) I've been on the hunt for a pair of leopard pumps for a long time, but I really love the sandals you got... I'm thinking maybe I should refocus my search! Love your blouse, too.

  23. you are totally rocking those wedges! :) and oh how i hate it when that happens, but on the bright side, they are still pretty much a good bargain... only $8?! :)

  24. Those are awesome, I think they were a good choice! You're so smart to buy multiple items then decide after you try them in person.

  25. honey you made the right choice those are fab!!!

  26. Ugh, it's still too much to ask the fashion industry for a shoe that fits. I don't even want to buy shoes any more-- it's too terrible.

    How's walking in your new leopards? They're high, but they look really stable.

  27. Love your leopard print heels! I'm sure you'll get a lot of use out of them this season!

  28. I love the Sam Edelman shoes so bad!


  29. those leopard wedges are tooooo cool! I wish I could actually go ahead and just buy shoes online. I rarely do because I'm so picky and then if they don't fit, I'm too lazy to send them back. I know, I'm awful :(

  30. i like the one you are wearing best!!!

    also, this whole look is very nice and simple ..yet very striking!!


  31. that is a very enviable collection of leopard shoes you have there! I love your outfit, it's very effortless chic.

    On another note, I'm glad I stumbled onto your blog, definitely following you and looking forward to more posts :)



  32. love that shirt thanks for sharing

  33. I really like all of the sandals and the pair you chose are really cute. I have also been on the hunt for leopard pumps. Maybe I'll go for the sandals instead.

    Fabulous outfit! I really like your olive green blouse and white denim is my new obsession.

  34. Those are some fun wedges - great choice!

  35. I've def. entered your giveaway. I shop @ Shopbop a lot! love it. I really like PVL shoes, but they're difficult for me to wear also.

  36. For some reason it's never occurred to me that I could just order multiple shoes when I'm having trouble deciding on one. With all the places offering free return shipping now, that seems like the way to go! I love all three of those pairs, but I think the ones you chose look the comfiest.

  37. The first pair is my fav, too bad so narrow!
