I kind of struggled about posting these, but hey — they are beautiful. Just this one time (okay, maybe a few times), I’ll overlook the fact that they are designed by a celebrity designer. At least Nicole Richie seems serious about it (not just a fad) and her collections are mostly pleasant in that boho kind of way.

But these boots are really pretty: very high and very leopardy without getting into the “lady of the night” category. Also, the curvy cut ankle line will make it work on most leg shapes. You know by know I have a soft spot for leopard, especially of the chunky kind. Seems like something Edie Sedgwick would have worn back in the day. But much higher.
Other celebs-turned-designers I don’t mind: the Olsens, Alexa Chung and Gwen Stefani. And soon, Kanye West (fingers crossed).

$295 at Shopbop and Bloomingdale’s (for those in the States).
