Now. Let's talk boots. I found this DIY on Mr. Kate (loooooove her) and while it calls for vintage cowboy boots, I was too anxious to wait on finding a pair. But lo and behold my good old side zip booties. I got these in 2002, at the height of the pointy-toe boots with flared jeans trend and I am so thankful that I went with this pair with slightly more rounded toe because they have stood the test of time! I'm not a fan of the mid-calf height and loved the idea of turning them into ankle booties (amazing, one of a kind, bohemian ones, at that). My husband said I'm "cute" for making/wearing these. Translation: I love you, even if you wear stuff that's a little crazy for my taste.
I used vintage belts, vintage lace (cut from a night gown), some old gold chain necklaces and t-shirt scraps for the ties.
My apologizes for the abundance of photos! I love the light/sun flares in these pictures so much.
