Rihanna was spotted in Ireland’s Emerald Isle of all places. She’s on tour and will play Belfast on Monday and Dublin. But that’s nighttime and the daytime is the right time for shopping! Of course, she hit the over priced shoe and handbag shop. She also made her way to Brown Thomas Department Store. Of course, there was picture taking and autograph signing with fans.
Of course, we have to talk about the clothes and the shoes. She’s rocking that blonde short bob still and it definitely was front and center with her first outfit. She went for the all black look–pants, shirt/sweater, pumps and giant sunglasses. There were gold hoops and a giant rapper-like necklace t go with this. It was very demure and classy.
Then, somewhere along the way, she went leopard crazy. She changed her clothes and had on a tight leopard top (traditional leopard) and paired with a red leopard skirt. Yes you read right. She was still sporting the pumps and giant glasses, but lost the giant gold chain and charm and traded the cold hoops in for gaudy, chunky earrings.
With either of these outfits, she could have really gone for it with the shoes. If you’re wearing an all black ensemble, why not wear something a little more daring, like Stuart Weitzman Avalon evening–pumps in black glitter. They’re very Wizard of Oz-esque and are just enough (or a little flash) to not upstage the jewelry.
A chic peep toe pump like Stuart’s Avignon in black patent would have been a class act, too. The natural wood heel makes for a great contrast with the black patent leather top.
With the dueling leopard skirt and top, she’s best to just stay with the black pumps. The ones she had on look very similar to Stuart Weitzman’s Swoon in black soft patent.
Someone needs to tell her to pick one leopard color, not two. A solid black skirt would have been a way better selection–yes, there is something as too much leopard print. Hard to believe that came out of our mouths.
