THESE BOOTS WERE (PROBABLY NOT) MADE FOR WALKING

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: 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).

  1. Isabel Marant is definitely your crack. And from up close, 'intense' is definitely the appropriate word but still, I love following all of your Marant purchases! :) The boots are brilliant!

  9. Those boots are to DIE for! I just returned from Coachella and I could have really used them in my tool bag over the weekend-they would have been killer with my cutoffs and tank top. I guess there's always next year...... :-)

  11. As we known with the fact that fashions are being changed in a very rapid way therefore designers are invented a number of innovative and unique designs to look more attractive and stunning, here we noticed the latest fashion trends of boots which definitely not made for walking, so I was just wondering how modelers are wear these boots in ramp shows.
