Pragmatically Python and a Sneak Peak to Barrister’s Ball

Barrister’s Ball is todayyy! As I know I won’t have the pictures up until tomorrow, I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of my shoes (which I am ridiculously ecstatic about)! To preface, I’ve recently been all over the internet (heaven forbid I leave my apartment) searching for shoes. My dress is red, so I thought I would go gold to accessorize. On the safe side, I know, but I’m going for glamour at a conservative law prom, not New York fashion week, sheesh. Anyway, not long into the search, I started to notice a trend. Namely, SNAKE PRINT.

Then yesterday on WhoWhatWear. (A godsend I recently discovered — except they also introduced me to this Randall Loeffler clutch and I am so conflicted as to why I am so in love. I have never felt this need for citrus… I’m all at sea! — Get it? Sailors, at sea.. limeys… citrus…). Moving right along, they put out like a gajillion posts a day (decidedly unlike this blog) and have really cool stuff. Well, their “item of the day” was this pair of Need Supply snakeskin (print) shoes!


Need Supply

It might be my law degree, but I feel the need to offer ample evidence that every “trend” I’m documenting is not merely a figment of my imagination. So now that you can see I’m marginally credible, I thought I’d show you my interpretation on personal style and python print shoes (of two types).

First: Barrister’s Ball! These are my Chloe python heels (2012.. I believe). If you don’t like them please don’t tell me.



Glasses: Disney, Shirt: Disney (gotta love that employee discount), Leggings: The Row via eBay

DSC_0038This is the most I’ve ever spent on shoes (although they were still eBay). I wish I felt more guilty… but aren’t they beauts? So that is how to wear snakeskin going to the store or hanging at the mall. If you think you are Beyoncé or just have fab legs (and smaller calves then my half marathon running monsters) then this next look is for you.


Also, the reason that my pictures are marginally better is because I got my new camera!! Barrister’s Ball here I come (I just have to avoid the punch… for a variety of reasons).


This dress is in my Posh/Vinted closet for those interested. <\shameless self promotion>


Unneeded dress details (because it cracks me up when people do this)


These are La Perla Pret-a-Porter, which I also got on eBay — word to the wise next time you’re buying gold snakeskin boots online — maybe know your calf size first. (They call me Epimetheus.)

But snake print doesn’t stop at gold (though mine does… or it gets too snakey for me). My sister put together an interesting ensemble to prove it (also because I ran out of snake print shoes).



She sends her love from a travelling mirror inside her phone.


For those interested, I’m fairly certain we bought these BCBG heels from T. J. Maxx after a long conversation about the fact they wouldn’t make her too tall. Amirite or amirite? Just good legs all around.

Wish me luck (with the curling iron) tonight at the BALL.
