Shoe Month! Disco Inferno

Filed under: Fashion History,Shoes,The Daily Kick — Miss Plumcake @ 8:00 am

I have been staring at my computer for fifteen minutes now trying to explain how much I love these shoes without using the words “Bianca Jagger” “coke spoon” “Studio 54” “Liza’s spider lashes” or “Grace Jones/Halston cat fight” and I just can’t.

Although I’ve always been more of a Lou Reed than a David Bowie and I don’t put anything stronger than caffeine in my body (and that comes in the form of precisely one cup of tea between 2:30 and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday), I’ve always loved the wretched excess of New York’s glam rock/disco days.

The “Cabaret” from Due Farina rings my beee-eee-eeell in a major way, especially because they have a solid heel (THANK YOU), a wider toe box and a good bit of elastic at the ankle strap. Also? Almost 70% off!!

I’m going to be featuring shoes from the incredible Bluefly sale going on all this week, so be warned: sizing is going to be limited. Get while the getting’s good.


  1. My teenage son stopped wearing his Glam Lou Reed T-shirt after my husband and I said “Ladies and gentlemen, LIZA!” every time he wore it.

  2. @Harridan: Man, I love every. single. person. in your family. But not as much as I love Lou Reed and Liza Minnelli!

  3. Plumcake, speaking of great Bluefly sales, I just bought the Stuart Weitzman black and white gingham check wedges that you recommended ages ago for $42(!!!) on Bluefly. So excited!
