The Donald Pliner Clog Saga

This post goes out to my mama!

The Saga of the Donald Pliner Clogs began in August 2017, when I saw local Shoe boutique Shoe Box post an instagram of these awesome fur lined clogs. (Evidence here on the post, where I commented NEEED) My mom was working on and off at Shoe Box and I texted her saying how much I liked the shoes! She asked me which color I liked better, I let her know, and sort of forgot about it. Christmas came and went, no clogs. 

Fast forward to last fall.  I get a text from my mom of a picture of the shoe box, that she had safely “hidden” somewhere in her house and come across a year later.  It happens to the best of us and I was excited that she had indeed bought be the clogs and just misplaced them.  Over the course of the next few weeks I kept going over to her house and accidentally forgetting them, EVERY SINGLE TIME.  She kept asking if I just didn’t want them anymore or if my taste had changed (which happens a lot), but honestly I just kept forgetting. 


We are cozied in front of the fire at The Homestead, opening our Christmas gifts and my mom starts to kind of tee-hee as she hands me a package.  I open it up, and its of course, THESE SHOES. Everyone is kind of silent as I had been expecting another pair of shoes for Christmas *cough Gucci loafers*  She told me to open the box, where she had put an envelope with a little money for Christmas and my birthday (the day after) to put towards my Gucci loafers if that was what I wanted.  She admittedly had been afraid that her silly gag gift, wrapping the clogs, was not going to go over well, but when I figured out what was happening, I was thrilled!!! I would get the long forgotten clogs, and my beloved Gucci loafers both.  I wore the clogs on Christmas night and am excited to have them join my ever growing shoe collection.

Mama, I love you and I love the clogs.Thank you for always supporting my fashion ideas and keeping me looking my best in the everyday and here on my little corner of the internet.

Obviously, the clogs are no longer for sale online, but here’s inspiration for the rest of the look >>
