Donald J Pliner Isky mules

Wayne knows I love mules, but these Donald J Pliner Isky mules in Khaki Metallic are just plain fugly! And they are $350 from Zappos to boot!    A little,  okay A LOT  out of my price league.

Not sure if it's just a PR ploy or what.   After all Mischief PR put out the  press release.    But we know I won't be wearing them.   One, I hate flip-flops, and two, I hate to wal … [Read more...]
