Just made this fabulous purchase from ancestorvintage over at etsy. I had these sitting in my favorites for nearly half a year, and to my surprise..no one had snatched these glorious boots! I thought its about time I get them before it is really too late. While most are planning their summer outfits, I'm already thinking of fall, maybe its the freak weather we had last week or that I love autumn much more than summer. I feel like I have better clothes suited for the cooler weather than the warm. And Its funny for me to say it this way since I live in southern California where the weather is rarely cold, so I suppose my cold weather items are equivelent to warm weather items in other parts of the world.

The corset lace ups reminded me of the boots from Ann Demeulemeester A/W 08 collection. Except not the triple laced version or have that curved heel, but still beautiful in its own right. Just the idea of saying "corset lace ups" gets me all giddy (i sort of have a thing for lingerie, which is why i'm happily working for a luxury lingerie/couture bridal designer). I feel much happier in finding vintage items that resembles a style that I love from the designer without paying a fortune for the name (unless it is the most essential item to have in my closet and none other can merit the same feeling for its design) and knowing that designers are often inspired from the past, I think its super cool to have a vintage pieces that designers are inspired to bring back to the modern world. Makes me feel like I have stuff that are more authentic than just the label.

Lately I've been paying close attention to pants with floral prints on them. I've been seeing a lot of floral harem pants in vintage stores and they look intriguing, but I don't think it's worth $70-$100 though. I'm going to hunt for some myself...and perhaps if I find vintage maxi skirts while thrifting I'll reconstruct it into pants. Shouldn't be too difficult right?

very very WORTHY purchase!
So Ann Demeulemeester!
Wolfgang Joop had this pair in the runway for Wunderkind as well. And yes, why not try pairing with prints galore for that neo-hippie mood?

much love

Not going to lie, I'm kind of jealous that you now own those boots. :) They are AMAZING. You must post pics of you wearing them! And I agree about the floral harem pants.. they are fab but that is a bit much to spend on pants that you won't wear on a weekly basis. Love Spanish Moss Vintage.. I lust over most of their stuff.

xo, Becs
