I was incredibly excited for this week's challenge - boots. So excited I actually made another set. That set though is if I were in a dream world where I can just snap my fingers and have everything I want.
Oh wait - that's Polyvore.
When it comes to boots, my heart belongs to Dr. Martens.. For this look, I played around with the iconic Cherry Red 1460s - perfect colour for Autumn.
I chose Grace for this look because the simple silhouette complements the toughness of the boots. This little black dress is truly a perfect canvas for countless outfit ideas. With a blazer and pumps for the office, a market tote and pair of Havaianas for quick errands, or with killer heels and statement pearls for date nights.
This look is perfect for me when I go to the library or a coffee shop to read. It's the end of Summer, but I live in Melbourne which is famous for its unpredictable weather - just yesterday, after a sudden heavy downpour that lasted maybe ten minutes and wet our clothes in the line, the sun came out and shone like a boss the rest of the afternoon. An outerwear is always a must. I probably have seven denim jackets in my closet, ranging in size from Uk18 to Uniqlo Small. I wear everything, depending on the look I want to achieve (90s loose grungy faded denim, sweet schoolgirl fitted, etc.)
I wash my hair everyday - even during Winter - but usually don't bother to style it. This is where beanie comes to the rescue. I am
I have a large Cambridge red satchel back home. Very cute, very preppy, but usually does not hold all of my stuff. But this bag will be perfect for a trip to the library.
I normally do not wear a necklace, but I'd be so thrilled to have this one from Etsy. The message is correct - books turn me on. And so do geeky men with beautiful faces hidden behind thick eyeglasses. But I digress. ;-) I also have a small collection of cord and leather bracelets from everywhere really, even random flea markets. I used to be big on the arm party trend, until I misplaced them one by one. Story of my life.
Fortunately, last time I had my eyes checked, I still had perfect 20/20 vision. But in the name of style and fashion, I'd throw in a Lisa Loeb-esque circa '90s pair of eyeglasses.
I'd complete the look with oxblood lipstick from the Nars Audacious collection, for that hint of goth.
Oh how fun! See you next week! :-)
