I'm happy to be teaming up with ShoeMint again! Remember this post? Well they kindly sent me this killer pair of leopard pumps to style and I have to say that much height gives me a serious confidence boost. A collab between Rachel Bilson (hello, style icon) and stylist Nicole Chavez, ShoeMint carries real leather and suede shoes manufactured by Steve Madden and priced at just $79.98 per pair. And the best part? ShoeMint will be giving three lucky Design Darling readers the pair of their choice! Go sign up and browse then come back and leave a comment here with your favorite pair. Oh and you just might see an exclusive discount for first time purchasers on the homepage. I'll be contacting the three winners on Friday. Good luck!
