this week's inspiration is far less refined and a little scattered, bear with me.
one of my very first pins was of Sienna Miller wearing the Chloe Susanna boot (top left.) the girl can do no wrong in my mind, and with the recent re-release of these boots they've been popping up everywhere. i can't shake them. i think they're pre--tty cool.
so i employed my own mantra and shopped my closet... and spotted these.
i haven't worn them since December '09 at a baby shower for Hayes.
time for an overhaul, boots!
basically, i hemmed them the way you would hem a pair of jeans.
cut out the middle, reattached the top to the bottom
and then added some metallic paint.
less than an hour later:
now, they're not going to win me any awards, but after staring at them for an hour,
i never want to see them or the Chloes again, so mission accomplished!
interpreting all of these things into an outfit ended up like this:
blantant western or blatant grunge is just too much blatancy.
somehow mixing the two works for me.
