Prickly Womanhood – In Flora Form

By Christa Terry

It’s not easy being a woman nowadays. You’re working, but still doing more than your fair share of the housework. On top of that, you probably should know how to do all that outside maintenance that used to be the responsibility of the XY set. And now, to top it all off, someone has put cacti in all your stripper pumps. Kidding! These are reclaimed stiletto planters a la the Giddy Spinster. It’s not footwear getting back to nature; it’s art.

The concept is about hard-working women, the increasingly artificial nature of American femininity, and the impossible images that women face in our society. It’s a prickly, spiky, sticky situation.

Also, strippers. Or am I the only one who sees shoes like that and thinks stripper? Because no one I know is going out to the clubs in gear like this:

These stilettos may have tiny imperfections because they were actually someone’s shoes. Which, of course, makes my brain create all kinds of crazy backs-stories to explain what the shoes were doing once upon a time before they were filled with soil and sold on Etsy. But, yeah, stripper plants? Me likey. Though I think I’d like my succulent or aloe plant in something like this glitter platform pump. Seems a shame to waste the sparkly leopard print interior by filling it with dirt, though.

We offer all kinds of certification exams including Testking and 642-813. Our guaranteed 000-723 exams are freely accessible all around the world of 70-647 and 220-701.
