The before

The 2 minutes later

Cannot stop wearing ankle boots so I cut my vintage Fryes.
Already got these tall blacks
Question for you: Go this short or keep as is?
Talk to me.

    I would have never put scissors to vintage but since it’s been done, keep it that length. The slouch look is nice. Any shorter and you’ll wonder what the hell have I done?!

    Bold move and I love it! Hmmm, I say give them a test run with an outfit or two, then decide.

    I kind of like the slouch of the length it is now, it gives more character to the boot

    that had to be at least a little traumatic to do. very nice result though.

    Love these boots! How tall are you? You look tall so I would say, keep it as is, or cut it just smidgen shorter. Sadly my stocky legs on my petite frame would look kind of weird, imbalanced.

    Drop the scissors and back slowly away from the boots – they’re the perfect height now! BTW, I’m a long time fan and first time comment-er. I must confess I’m rather obsessed with your blog and your style speaks to me in a language all it’s own. And it’s BEAUTIFUL. I, too, rock the “hippie with an edge” look and you inspire me everyday in more ways than one. Keep up the good work!

    Dude, as is! I have really really low dolce vitas, and they just are not as flattering.

    BTW, I love love your blog girl!

    I have been looking for a pair of boots to do this to forever! Yours are perfect. If they were mine, I would wear them for a while like they are, then cut them again later. I love changing things up!

    go shorter…They’re a cross between knee boots & ankle boots right now…so i think shorter will be chic-er!!!

  18. Ashley Rae says:

    As is. Can’t wait to see them on.

    Wow, they look so much better in my opinion. Even if they were great-looking boots before, then now i’m in love with them:)

  20. xtine says:

    Definitely as is! I don’t think they’re made quite right to be any lower.

    They look great. I’ve always wondered about cutting boots to make them shorter didn’t know if it would work – clearly it does!

    I personally like them as they are but they would work well cut shorter xx
