Big Black Boots

my-big-biker-boots22

Years ago, I posed in these big black boots, aware that they looked stupid with the dress but probably thinking I was cool anyway.

It was eight years ago and a whole other life.

The boots are in my closet, languishing with all the other shit I’ve wasted money on, always forgetting that I don’t like to get dressed up and I have nowhere to go. Each time I get out my credit card, I’m under a spell where I believe I’m someone else.

Anyway, I’m pretty sure I’ve worn the boots on two occasions. They cost around 950 bucks (I know!) so that’s $475 per use.

But wait.

Today, I clicked on the Maison Margiela Autumn 2016 collection and discovered that there’s hope for styling my boots after all.

I can wear them with a big upside-down orange coat-blanket thing, cinched at the waist with an uncomfortable belt! I even have the pasty white legs for this look.

Or, there’s this:

Okay, so a silver hooded cape (unless that’s a hat?) over a silver mini-dress  with a nice kangaroo pouch.

It’s good to switch things up, I’m always hearing. Why wear jeans and a t-shirt every day? I’m not getting any younger. Even if I’m just going out for coffee or groceries, there’s no reason not to throw on an upside-down coat and rock my huge boots.

Another idea is to forget about the boots and patiently wait to die so that some girl with size ten feet and an appreciation of offbeat overpriced crap can be the happiest person ever.

    David Duff – Oooh, and I’d get a bright red coat and I wouldn’t have to wear it upside down!

    I’ve got size 10 feet. Will you leave them to me in your will? 🙂

    Don’t forget the yellow monkey mouth makeup.

    Omg. The upside down coat is ridiculous.
    Although, if you sewed the arms shut with zippers inserted, you could store shit in them. No need for a purse.
    Which is perfect, since your arms appear to be strapped down by the belt. And you couldnt carry one.
    They need to fuck off with this nonsense.

    Is Galliano still at the helm of Margiela? Odd coupling.

    Just realised the second pair of boots are wellies/waders. I think my Dad used to have those for fishing.

    The corset looks very like a Westwood toile de jouy one from the 90’s.
