I’m Mad about Mary Jane

Filed under: Shoes — Miss Plumcake @ 12:33 pm

Well hel-lo there Mary Jane. What are you doing there all alone? Would you like some candy? I’ve got some in my car. No, way in the back…you’ll probably have to crawl in. What’s that? The door is locked? You what? You can’t get out? Oh…oh dear.

Stuart Weitzman triple-threat Mary Janes Lane Bryant Chrysanthemum Dress

Seriously though, if I didn’t have to spend TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS at the body shop this week because some hateful creature destroyed my beloved Cadillac’s convertible top (which are apparently made from the tanned hides of dead baby angels) these would be mine faster than you can say catalytic converter.

I’ve been in love with the multi-strapped Mary Jane for years now, ever since I first met the Miu Miu (and to a lesser extent Chloe) double straps, and even despite the less-than-flawless styling of the Bluefly site, there’s no denying this is an incredible price for a very good shoe you’ll find yourself grabbing again and again. I particularly like them with this abstract crysanthemum dress from Lane Bryant. Pile on a few looong ropes of pearls and chains of varying lengths and you’ve got a stellar fall outfit.

Now you’ll have to excuse me, what does one wear to perform vigilante justice on an as-yet-unknown gerbil knobbler who likes to violate Cadillacs? Fendi, right?


  1. I’m going to say that vigilante justice calls for Givenchy. Or maybe Rick Owens.

  2. I do believe that’s a crime worthy of siccing Karl Lagerfeld on the perpetrator.

  3. I love multi-strapped Mary Janes, too. Being on more of a budget, however, I just bought these from Payless:×600/063333_1_600x600.jpg

  4. For vigilante justice, one always wears vintage Vivienne Westwood.

  5. That is a seriously cute dress.

  6. My sympathies. What is with these hateful people? They can’t afford something nice, so they get to destroy what you have? That’s really vile. And yes, I know – I had a car that was keyed. It wasn’t in anyone’s way, it wasn’t where it shouldn’t be, there was nothing wrong with it – nothing, except for the fact that it belonged to me, and not the person who keyed it.
