Rebel Rebel

sandro coat

(Almost) everything about this is masculine which is why I loved it. Same reason for loving creepers and winkle pickers. They're boyish enough for everything. 

Underground creepers platform creepers

Coat: Sandro. Try Topshop, Chicnova or  Jeans: H&M. Try JBrand (25% off site wide code: INTHEFAMILY14). Shirt: Second hand shop. Boots: Underground Originals. Love these winkle pickers or these badass lace ups. Bag: Chanel. Try Rebecca Minkoff or Asos. Suspenders: Mens (random)

Every time I put on these boots I miss wearing them more often. The big sole, the pointy toe, the buckles. So good.  They look wicked with all black.  

I wore them this time with the faded leopard jeans and the polka shirt.  Never thought that I'd still need a coat but this is no typical spring. A good excuse to bring them out just one more time.

ps. Rare Shobop sale is on. 25% off site wide including sales stuff: Code: INTHFAMILY14. I'm thinking about getting these safety pin earrings for extra off, especially after me talking to you about wearing more earrings.

That Slip Dress

There I was in Times Square getting off the escalator inside H&M and there they were: dark blue slip dresses. Boom!

It must have looked like I was still on the escalator judging by the way I glided over to the rack of them.

I like the lace part at the bottom.  Reminds me of a real night slip dress you thought of wearing outdoors. You've seen the boots before.
Here's an old post showing you how to customize your own old boots. Warning: You need sharp scissors.

Slip dress: H&M. Try Free People. I like this black, the 'Bonita' or this gorge one (want!). Fringe jacket: Vintage. Boots: (DIY cut to ankle + metal tips added). Try these by Steve Madden, Office Vintage. Bag: Vintage Coach. Shades: Ray-Ban

I know if Mum saw this dress she'd probably say 'isn't that a nightie you've got on?' to which I'd probably say 'yes it is - cool right?' as I walk out the door - just to wind her up ;-) 

Soon as I saw it though at the shop I didn't even hesitate. I was scanning the size labels before I even looked at the price when normally it's the other way round.

I added an old belt and a suede fringe jacket (you saw the jacket a couple of weeks ago with white jeans here).  A cropped jacket would've worked too - next time. I'm just glad it's warm enough to even wear slip dresses layered or not!
