Plumcake Sets the Record Straight

I didn’t ACTUALLY stab anybody over a pair of python pumps.

I mean technically I MIGHT have MAYBE threatened to THEORETICALLY stab the diminutive, hairy-chested man swishing his way towards me with a meaningful glint in his eye at a secret, invitation-only 90% off sale at a local high-end boutique on Sunday but seriously, I didn’t like the way he was eying my shoe booty. Besides, assault charges and resultant incarceration are temporary, a python court shoe is forever.
Michael Kors “Cairo” in natural python

I give you the Michael Kors “Cairo” pump. I cannot recommend this shoe enough (see also: stabbing, defensible reasons for.)

You won’t be able to get my python pretties, but if you’re in the market for a subtly sexy, curvaceous investment pump with a surprisingly wearable heel that you’ll return to again and again –like that kinda skeevy guy in college who wore a serape and always wanted to tell you about his theeeories but could do that weird double jointed thing– these might be the shoes for you.

A word to the wise: they run comfortably wide and about a half-size big. Enjoy!

    Perfectly defensible crime, in my opinion and a jury of your peers (your *true* peers, meaning hard-core, incorrigible, dedicated, leather-souled Shoe Hos like ourselves) would not in a million years convict you.

    PS… Preeeeeeeetty shoooooooooes…

    A serape, huh? Sistergirl, you gots some explaining to do. I didn’t know you swung that way. As for the shoes, they are pretty. They would only live in a box if they were mine, taken out from time to time to pet and admire. And that’s no life for a shoe.

    I thought he wore a gray hooded zip-front sweatshirt (back when they were called “hooded sweatshirts” and not “hoodies”). Over a “vintage” bowling shirt.

    Cute shoes, though.

    Guess what! I found these lovelies in the python. Yeah me!

    Hope you don’t feel I’m stealing your style but I love the python. Now I need some elbow length gloves…

    There I was in a shoestore last week, after locating gray-silver snakeskin pointy-toed kittenheeled boots that I put on and they actually fit….. I loved them, but they made me feel faintly ridiculous, and then I looked in the mirror and the look reflected back was, well, mutton-y.

    Right there I had a requiem moment for my former pre-parenthood, rock&roll lifestyle, decided I would chose aging gracefully with dignity over trying too hard to hang on, and put them back on the shelf.

    But you, you keep the faith. Rock on with your fab python shoes far far away from anyone sporting serape flair, Plumcake.
