Dear Charles Nolan: Let’s Kiss With Tongues

Filed under: Shoes — Miss Plumcake @ 2:08 pm

I’ve been quietly stalking you for some time, and I’m pretty sure I love you. I know you designed for Anne Klein, and I’ve really enjoyed your past two ready-to-wear collections. I love that you use a combination of fantastic models and “regular” women of all ages (was that a comparatively plus-size model I saw on look 35 of your Fall 07 show?) and that you really are committed to classic investment-quality American Sportswear. In your interviews you seem genuinely friendly and you cut a hell of an English shoulder in your menswear. Also, there is a rumor that you serve tuna fish sandwiches and lemonade backstage before shows, and that sort of makes me love you even more.

Mostly though, I love you for FINALLY giving me my green pump. You don’t even know how long I’ve yearned for just the right green day wear pump. The fact that you gave it to me in plum as well (oh sure, pretend it’s a coincidence) and at 40% off? Pucker up, pal. You deserve it.


  1. Wow, I want to EAT these shoes – just shove them in my mouth whole.

  2. Even Manolo couldn’t do it better. Bronze and gold Mary Jane straps? You must have both. Kudos for being able to walk in those suckers, because I couldn’t do it. You must for all of us who can’t! Go, Plumcake, buy the shoes!!!

  3. Oh I want those soooooo badly but I’m on a bit of shoe restriction. I do need a great pair of non-shiny red flats that I’ve been searching for a while for, but not green pumps :( The red flats are all I’m allowed to get.

  4. I wish I was poor right now because I really want those green shoes.
