It’s All In the Details
Your shoes don’t always have to perfectly match your dress! and if you’re truly a shoe fan, you would know that sometimes your shoes can be the focal point of the entire outfit! We were so inspired by these cheetah print stilettos with a shiny, metallic ankle strap, that we decided to let them shine by pairing them with this refined, Jovani prom dress. Featuring an all-over embellished bodice that sparkles so beautifully and an understated, flowing skirt, this dress is so elegant on its own, but won’t clash with the funky pattern of the heels, allowing the shoes to speak for themselves!
