Given there hasn't been much sexy metal clothing releases this week, I thought I'd do a feature of the one thing I love most: snakes, serpents, dragons and all other things slithery.
As usual, we start with the utterly unobtainable, but almost sadly always the best (sigh).
Dragon shoe. Unfortunately this one is a sculpture! So even if you could afford it, you can't wear it! such is the way of the world...
Faux snakeskin corset from the Imaginarium Emporium on Etsy
again from the Imaginarium Emporium (I know its not serpentine but hey)...
the Ralph Lauren dragon dress
Snake dress by Iris van Herpen
Lanvin snake print dress
To the FAR LESS exciting to the affordable. I just don't know why no one has yet bothered to make a super sexy snake print dress, that isn't with snakeskin print. Surely the buggers look better alive than dead?
Fortunately, I was able to find a few things I wouldn't mind getting my hands on.
