Blouse Mum’s Valencia Pants Zara Boots Ebay

These boots get more attention from men than women – one guy walking by actually stopped and turned around. Could be either wtfart is she wearing or holy cupcake I want those. (Or was he checking out my rear end?) Creeping suspicion that it’s the first one though.

For those wondering about the processes of my ‘photoshoots': First my beszt friend Ellen takes my outfit photos outside, then I gently escort it home where I brutally vandalize by cropping and editing colours & lighting. My camera model is Canon EOS 400D, but as I’ve said to a few, it’s a particular lens that makes the photos what they are – and which lens, is my little secret.

Indoors (i.e home) outfit shots is me struggling with the tripod and remote – which usually ends up with throwing the remote to see if I can hit the shutter button.

Doo.Ri inspired tights still not ready, taking über-über longer than expected… But I do like that it’s going in a more personalized direction – instead of the exact replica.

  30. Really? I always thought that Londoners (or is it -ites? I can’t remember, not enough coffee this morning) were more liberal about interpretations on fashion. But then again, if someone’s hating on you, then it means you’re doing something right. (Or at least that’s what they say – who “they” are, I’m not exactly sure myself… but it does help make you feel better, right? ^_^)

    And yup, Encore Western plays westerns ALLLLLLL day. It used to be a major genre that became super popular from around 1930-1970s. Any major movie star from those time periods did at least one western. I saw a Gregory Peck one last night in “The Big Country.” What a sexy beast.

  31. I agree, procrastination is good for everything.

  32. nice outfit, love the ruffles on the shirt and the boots.
    cant belive you’re getting more attencion by the guys than the girls on the boots.

  33. “ndoors (i.e home) outfit shots is me struggling with the tripod and remote – which usually ends up with throwing the remote to see if I can hit the shutter button.” – haha, that is so me! ;) love the boots! great find!

  34. Your boots are definetly looking great!
    That blouse is also really amazing!
    Haa I wish I had a good camera and a Tripod! So I could make cool pictures of myself hahaha.
    Everything turns out sooo bad with my camera. If I can call it so…

    And about the shoes, They are not louboutins but Lanvins :D. They just copied the red sole! They just have no imagination!

  42. Fabulous outfit!!! You pull off the androgynous look quite well ;)

    E

  43. It’s okay, I find that there are certain demographics attracted to certain things. My red docs, for example, get undue attention from large black women. It’s quite wonderful actually.

  44. Ah yes the joy of photoshop! If I had your legs and height I too would be stomping around in flat combat boots.

  45. i think everyone should say a loud and resounding YES to procrastination.

    can’t wait to see that diy by the way.

  46. i’ve been eyeing those tights as well. can’t wait to see what magic you work with your diy.

  47. I love boots more than anything else I think, they have more personality!

  48. I am so in love with this. Is so yummily slouchy and stuff, and you just gave me the chance to use that weird saying again :D

  49. Cant wait to see them finished!! They look really cool so far

  50. Once I went to university, I became the queen of Procrastination. :( I don’t like procrastinating, but I can’t stop!! Haha, I need help.

  51. You’re right about the sequined tights taking a long time. We looked at introducing a sequined range but it all took wayyyyyyy too long. I always respect anyone who gives it a good go.
