Experiment 36

ladyjuliet_miista-emi-boots

I really love this time of year. Blossoms everywhere, trees leafing out, but most importantly, this when I finally get to wear all of my jackets.
I already showed off this jacket once in the other post, but haven’t properly raved about it..
So here goes.. I just love it! I have a few Karen Millen jackets and this might just be my favorite one.

It’s actually completely different from their ‘signature’ biker jackets style. Besides the obvious longer length, the locations of the zippers are different, no elbow pads, so the sleeves are narrower. Also it has two buckles on the sides and no decorative belt in the back. And of course the shape.. it’s very narrow in the chest and waist area, but it tapers quite a bit from the waist down, so it looks really flattering. At least while it’s zipped.
Since it’s longer I thought it might as well be a bit warmer, but there’s really no difference in lining.. so it’s just a regular biker jacket for warmer spring/fall days. Still works for me, because my old black jacket had to be retired anyways.

* the decency shorts are technically not a part of the look, I just put them on to not flash anything when I’m on my knees messing with my camera, was too lazy photoshop them out.

Jeffrey Campbell ‘Ballistic’ Platforms

Jeffrey Campbell Ballistic platform boots

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:)

You can get them from either NastyGal or SoleStruck

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

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.
