just some shoes

I’ve gotten a few requests to showcase my shoes..fitting them all into one photo was just not going to happen so here are my current favorites. This rack is one of many, many shoe organizational systems scattered throughout the house.

Clockwise from top left – Promiscuous, Zara, Chloe, Chloe, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Emma Cook for Topshop, Colin Stuart, Bebe, Marni, Aldo, vintage, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Balmain be mine

Forever 21 dress, vintage slip, customized Zara boots.

It’s safe to say that only when it comes to attaining the Balmain look am I compelled to maniacally DIY. I guess I’m pretty lazy, but I mostly just really hate that craft store potpourri smell. I realized somewhere along the way I didn’t have the $16,000 it would take to create the designer look (I’m roughly estimating $15,000 for the dress and a grand for the boots), so I ordered this surprisingly well made dress from Forever 21 and made up for the fringelessness of my Zara boots by devoting an evening to studding them with my boyfriend/watching Gossip Girl and Heroes. They are now some kind of cheap mutant hybrid of FW08 and FW07. And, obviously, my new favorite shoes in the world.

Secondhand sweater, American Apparel leggings, Jessica Simpson boots with vintage boot strap.

I was floored by Scott Schuman’s shot of Anja pre-show at Balmain and was inspired to recreate her leggings/tights. I think I still need to work on some of the rips a bit to make them descend in size order.

Over it

Secondhand sweater, vintage boots, Korcula necklace, Elizabeth & James ring, vintage Chanel backpack.

I requested for Colin to get a close-up of the necklace. I’m wearing my only over the knee boots that I haven’t touched since this past spring, but I think the rounder toed Colin Stuart ones I mentioned earlier will be a nice, higher heeled alternative when they arrive. Almost 5 inches or bust. But in the meantime, I’m going to keep toying with these..they’re telling me they need a boyfriend blazer or skintight jeans to keep them company. Though somehow Emmanuelle Alt makes them look ridiculously good with a destroyed denim mini..three words that I haven’t uttered in conjunction since 2004. With all this obsessing over ankle boots and thigh highs, I’m wondering if knee high boots are going to start feeling fresh again soon. Isabel Marant’s show certainly did the midcalf justice. Perhaps time to dig in the shoe trunk.

Happy 10/10.
