Tarjay Boots a la Isabel Marant
These chains on my $35 Target boots (from 3 years ago no less!) were a pre-work, early morning D.I.Y. It took me all of 30 seconds to grab some chains and safety pins and slap some faux Isabel Marant style on them (see the real deal below).
Isabel Marant boot- le swoon. The next stage of D.I.Y for my boots will be scouring Salvation Armys for faux Chanel purses, cutting off the straps, and wrapping them around my own boots.
I decided to wear my new white jeans with them. White jeans used to scare the bejebus out of me (aren't they magnets for red wine and other embarrassing stains that magically end up on your rear?), but I've always loved them, and decided to stop being such a weenie. If inanimate objects can possess confidence or sprezzatura, white jeans seem to have it.
ps- Thank you for all the sweet, sweet comments about our style awards mess! We loved all your comments-- and we'll continue our musings on Atlanta fashion.
