It all started with a desire to get Scully platforms in black, but then I figured since Jeffrey Campbell has a pretty big selection of chunky heeled platforms, there’s no good reason to settle for a model that I already have. So I went for the boots called ‘Ballistic’.
I just needed something to go well with about anything and I felt like these would be just perfect, as esentially they’re pretty basic lace up boots, but at the same time the double tiered platform and extra high matte wooden heels make them really stand out.
They’re pretty comfortable, at least for the shoes of this heel height..but since they are still pretty steep despite the platform, after a couple of hours they start to hurt (especially if you’re lugging around with 4kg worth of photography equipment)
So guess they could use a bit extra padding(like all JC shoes basically), but the exterior leather is super soft, so at least no blisters even after the first wear.. so bottomline, I’m happy with them:)
Last month has been busy, stressful, whatever.. But I managed to do a bit of fun stuff in between..
So I got to visit Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition in Victoria and Albert museum, which was just an incredible experience.
Photography was not allowed so all I brought home with me were crappy candidly shot cell phone pix, which don’t even remotely do it all justice.. you just have to see it all in person. If it wasn’t for the fuss of having to book the tickets way in advance, I’d love to go again.
So if you’re in London between now and August 2, this is a must see. Here are a few of my crappy cell phone pictures anyways
If I had to describe my personality in five words, that probably would be it.. love this top!
Also wearing Jeffrey Campbell ‘Shoop’ platforms which I have a love hate relationship with, but I wrote about that earlier. And one of my Alexander HiTek watches, this one I thought would go well with the rectangular patch on the top.
Wearing: Top and ring: River Island, Jeffrey Campbell ‘Shoop’ shoes, leggings: ebay, studded purse: Steve Madden, watch: Alexander HiTek
This one wasn’t really about making a fashion statement, tbh i just wanted to have some decent pictures with Big Ben in the background:)
Can’t say I managed to get the shot I wanted, as there was not a single photo where everything would be perfect.
Wind kept messing up my hair and not in a pretty way and my camera was being stupid and many pictures came out
So here are some that turned out okay with help of lots of postprocessing.
I’m wearing one of my Karen Millen jackets, which might be my favorite.. It looks simply gooorgeous, just one downside is that the leather is so stiff that it feels like wearing a corset sometimes, probably the reason why it got discounted so much. So maybe it’s a good thing afterall, because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to afford it.
this purse has seen better days, i just wear it alot, since it’s a perfect combo of edgy and elegant and goes with pretty much anything
