These boots were shown at Givenchy's fall 2012 mens show, but modeled by a woman. I think I can safely say they're some of my favorite boots in shoe history. I like the old world craftsmanship about them combined with their futuristic engineering.

Below is the full look! I love how the pailette sweater mimics the brindle in a dogs coat.

I'm so in love with my new apartment, here is a quick glimpse of it! It's a work in progress. I can't wait to move in.

Wearing Madewell Skinny Skinny jeans in white, thrifted Pierre Cardin velvet jacket, vintage western floral shirt, and Laurence Dacade mid-calf boots.

My mom and I went by White Elephant Antiques and Lula B's yesterday to pick up some knick-knacks to fill up my apartment. I also found an amazing dining table at Again & Again!

This is called a tantalus--how cool is that??

My favorite booth in White Elephant!

My mom and I fell in love with these guys at Lula B's. They make a great couple, don't they? The kitty is mine and I've named her Gish.

Wearing a faux fur shirt borrowed from my mom, Anthropologie pants, and those super cute Marc by Marc Jacobs gold booties again to go grab an appetizer.

I wish these little gold boots were mine!! My mom let me borrow them that day. They are just perfect...and sadly they are several years old, and I don't think I'll be finding another pair. I'm trying to find a decent substitute...

1. Stella McCartney stud heeled ankle boots (love the shape)

2. Sergio Rossi gold Over-the-knee boots

3. Giuseppe Zanotti metallic biker ankle boots (seriously cute!)

I wanted to take advantage of  this cool spooky light that occured before a big storm blew in. I dug a tutu out of the garage and my mom pulled out this old frame...and right as we were about to leave, the gold Marc by Marc Jacobs boots my mom had ordered from Yoox showed up! It was insanely fun to run through the woods in a princess skirt.
