Glossies: Snakes Alive

Via Cargo

More snake and skin, this time courtesy of the spanking March Cargo. The full-page layout is called Skin Show: Reptiles Are Back to Tip the Scales in Your Favor. A variety of accessories are highlighted, from snakeskin glasses to python watches, shoes and belts. The python print silk shirt at lower left is hot ta def, so here's a zoom.

Michael Kors isn't one of my fave labels, but he is edgy. The editors say the shirt is less than five bills, and available at Neiman-Marcus stores and online.

The Cole Haan kicks are clever, and they too are python. It's been a few years since I've owned a pair snakeskin shoes. Years ago they were conidered ostentatious, but today's fashion is much more forward. BTW, in the past few months I've seen more and more exotic shoes such as these, in NYC, Chicago and LA. Not sure are these for me, but they definitely make a statement.
