You might surprise yourself

What happens when you combine my favourite band (Faith No More) with my favourite movie (Vertigo)??

The pure genius that is Mike Patton and Jennifer Jason Leigh in the Last Cup of Sorrow's video. Loves.

The other day I was feeling a bit artsy/craftsy so I decided to spruce up a boring pair of knee-high Aldo boots and hopefully sell them in my store. The boots were in perfect condition but they just needed a little something something.

Well I went stud happy, discovered that I could wear the boots folded down to become ankle boots, that they look freakin' awesome now and, well, now I don't think I'll be selling them after all! I did surprise myself.



















Boots: Aldo DIY; Skirt: ASOS; Jacket: La Rok; Shirt: Forever 21; Necklace: Lochers

I love versatile clothing :) It's always so refreshing to discover that you can wear old favourites in a different way. Love the outfit... perfect parts of rocker and elegant lady shaken up and served with an asparagus spear ;)

loooove the boots! did you stud them yourself? question: how's the shipping on asos? you always have great stuff from there and i'd love to join in on the fun, but i feel like it'd get pretty pricey!

I wish I was a craftier person. They look amazing! Folding them down was definitely a brilliant move.

Your so creative!

Love the skirt too.

Did you take your extensions out? Your hair looks shorter but much longer from before the extensions.
