dress: Zara, altered - denim vest: thrifted, altered - boots: vintage via Lucky Vintage Seattle - beanie: Ebay
Three of my favorite new pieces are featured in this outfit: my new beanie (a recent 90s obsession of mine), the denim vest I thrifted and studded myself and my AMAZING 90s vintage club kid boots. I've been wearing the boots almost daily since I received them and they are AWESOME and comfortable and unlike anything you find in stores nowadays.
Let me tell you the story of these boots. A few weeks ago, I fell in love with a certain look on Lookbook.nu. I had seen the blogger in the picture many times before since she is a popular blogger, and when one reaches that status their image floats around the internet forever more.
This time, the aesthetics of her look made me click through to her blog, hoping to find more awesomeness. And boy, did I. Not only is Madeline stylish as FUCK, she is also an amazing writer and a very intelligent, inspiring woman (and fellow feminist). DO follow her blog, if you aren't doing so already! Best blog I've come across in a long, long time.
ANYWAY, I fell hard for her style with every new look I scrolled down to, and inspiration started filling my empty little heart. I wanted to make that look my own. Starting with her 90s Club Kid boots.
Off to Etsy I went. After a bit of browsing, I fell for these boots I found over at Lucky Vintage Seattle, and due to a stroke of fortune the seller was a fan of my blog! She sent over the boots as a gift, I only had to pay for the shipping. But I totally would have bought them either way. AND! Lucky Vintage Seattle turns out to be a sponsor of Jean Greige as well! This was clearly a case of big, fat fate.
How do you like my 90s outfit? :-D My boyfriend thinks my boots are awesome, but he finds the beanie ridic.
PS: the drapery in my dress is caused my a knot I made on the inside of the dress (instead of the outside), inspired by this post by The Blonde Muse. I just grabbed some fabric and tied it together with a rubber band et voila! Great idea to wear your maxi dresses a different way. This dress I'm wearing normally reaches all the way down to my feet.
