Win a Pair of Shoes from Chinese Laundry!

OH shoes. How I do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Shoes are the perfect accessory. They are for everyone. It doesn’t matter if I am in my fat pants or slimmer than ever, shoes always take my fashion mood to the next level.

This season, as a mom of two boys I need comfort. I am often baby-wearing my 6 month old so I need to be able to be surefooted and stable. But that doesn’t mean I can’t look cute! I jumped at the chance to try out some adorable leopard print flats from the new CL by Laundry line and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!


These flats are sturdy and built to last. The materials are soft yet stable and I love that they are satin lined. I also really like the rubber soles so I don’t slip.


At just $44.99 these shoes are a steal! Honestly, for the quality I feel that they are definitely reasonably priced. And this is coming from someone who more often than not shops at chain stores that may or may not also sell bananas.


Like I said, my life is very much based in function right now. I am ok with that, but I instantly get a boost when I wear leopard print. And it doesn’t matter that I am not yet at my pre-pregnancy weight. My shoes will always fit.


The fit of these shoes is great. They are very comfortable and fit well. I like the little bit of elastic on the sides because I have high arches and sometimes they not play well with flat shoes. My only complaint is the slight rubbing on the back of my heel that sometimes happens with new shoes. I have no doubt that this will go away once I break them in more.

    SO cute! Would love to win in time for my birthday in 3 weeks! I’m only 5’0 so I look even shorter in flats, so I basically have to always wear a heel. I adore the Tell Me More GI pumps and the Bright Eyes heels. Thanks!

  3. Leticia A. says

    I would love to win the Suzukii in the beige/blue color! So pretty! And having a 2 year old to run after, I too need all the comfort I can get! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Anissa says

    ooh so hard to pick can I say either the Next to Me flannel, North Satin Dress purple or Shameless black…I need more time to pick!!

  5. Kimberly Hutchins says

    I like the great life organza or leopard print…but those sandals…Elma, too cute for summer. Love ’em.

  6. ClarissaD says

    I LOVE Chinese Laundry’s “Heart Throb” stiletto bootie! Perfect compliment to jeans or a darling summer dress! Thank you for the chance to win a pair of awesome Chinese Laundry shoes, 5Minutes for!

  7. Leslie G says

    These days, along with style, I’m all about comfort and these shoes look amazingly comfortable. I would be ecstatic to win EITHER pair.

    Are you kidding?! I have to pick just one!? I’m a mom, so practical flats make sense, (like Actress in one of the funky prints, or red) but I never ever treat myself to anything divine and that’s what CL is made of! The Dance Fever softs are divine and I could see myself living in them all summer. Ooo! Or the Party Time Kimonos, too! The Kiosk is exotically subdued and much more my daily style for summer, but how fab are the Whistle Patents?! This being said, I’ve never ever owned a pair of boots ever and I’m madly in lust with the Avonna styles… or the Grifters… maybe to an obsessive degree. Oh, why must CLs be so fabulous?! It aaaches! Frankly, if y’all just sent me a box with Jellies, I’ll be stoked.

  9. Tonya M. says

    After, like, an hour looking, I’ve decided I would *adore* the Saint Tropez Sandles. They’re beautiful. They come in my size (which not all CL does- I have small feet); they look comfortable, they look classic, but modern… they’d go great with jeans or dress. I would love them. They would make my little feet dance with joy. :)

  10. Lucy Schwartz says

    I like the Leopard flats, Go Ahead Disco and Tempo flats but I really really love the Ilena-2 Organza is any of the coloes.

  11. ACMommy3 says

    I like the Ricochet Leathe bootie, or the Yanni Brushoff pump, or the adorable shoes you reviewed. :-) creedamy [at] yahoo [dot] com

  13. Michelle says

    I absolutely LOVE the ones you have on & they would look soooo good with my new skinny jeans that I have!!!!

  14. Jen R says

    My favorite are the ones you are wearing the GREAT LIFE LEOPARD. However, I also love their boots as well.

  15. Marcy Strahan says

    I would love to win the Kasha In RED size 8 ! Well I love the natural but they are out of stock in size 8.
    I would love to win these to wear to my niece’s wedding & then for special night out.

    I love so many of them, but with summer in mind, I’m thinking about the Ginger Snap in tan-multi. They seem more fall, but I can make it work. :-)
