THESE BOOTS WERE (PROBABLY NOT) MADE FOR WALKING
Friday, 6 April 2012
Meet my new babies - the over-the-knee, suede and leather, FRINGED, wedged (wow that's a lotta adjectives) boots from Isabel Marant's AW11 collection. It must have been fashion fate that brought us together, as I found them hidden away under a table at a sample sale. My boyfriend thinks they're 'intense', my mother thinks they're 'too much' and my dad actually laughed when I walked out in them, but I LOVE THEM.
In other news, I managed to snag one of the elusive Isabel Marant number t-shirts from the SS11 collection. Again, it was a chance encounter - they'd just arrived at Bluebird one Saturday and there were only two left. Initially I'd wanted the red long-sleeved from the catwalk, but actually I much prefer this little green tank - perfect for layering over different t-shirts, and also by itself tucked into little shorts in the summer. Here's how I've been wearing both the t-shirt and boots lately:
Wearing: Isabel Marant hoodie, t-shirt and boots, Topshop Pippa jeans and Proenza Schouler PS1.
Wearing: T-shirt as before, H&M pleather skinnies (which look and feel like leather and have people asking 'where did you GET those?' on a daily basis), Mango shoes and bag as before.
And I couldn't NOT include my Willows, which you're probably sick of, but I'm rather enjoying the sports vibe (having been the least sporty person at school).
