Cardigan: vintage (Cheap Jacks). Grey jumper: H&M. Grey suede boots by Halston: Beacons Closet. Bag: Queen of Hearts via Gypsy Nation. Hat: Makins. Large onyx ring: This amazing vendor in New Orleans.
Per your comments, I’m keeping the over the knee boots grey for now. You lot are right: I have loads of black boots (These Zara ones give a similar look although they’re not over the knee).
I wore shades of grey/black for the above so I turned all the shots to black and white when post editing. (fyi. Michael takes the shots then hands me the Nikon to crop, lighten, darken do as I wish with all the pics. That’s how it’s been since day 1).
The crochet scarf belongs to a floor length crochet dress that I found a few weeks ago (I MUST show it to you one day).
Surplus shots on facebook.
