Pump It Up

Posted October 30, 2008
What’s a fashion-conscious girl to do in these times of fiscal crisis? Fake it. Buy the best looking faux you can. Rafe’s Cornelia Street Leighton pumps look like the real deal (they’re snake print stamped on leather), and they have patent accents and a very walkable heel. These are a fall basic that will go with everything from your skinny jeans to your I–used–to–work–on–Wall Street suit (now known as your interview suit). We've seen versions of these at double the $295 price tag, so snatch them up soon. Nobody (except us) will know they're not real python.
