Nine West – a Brit invasion

Here’s the boots I cut off.  I wasn’t sure at first wtf have I done did go through my head  – bloody LOVE em now!!
Info for the rest of the outfit is in the link.

Dress: H&M (I like this, this and this one too).  Boots: Mens vintage. DIY cut to ankle boots and added metal tips (from this brilliant place). Bag: Thrift: DIY studded. Shades: Ray Ban. Nails: Essie ‘Bright Tights’
Ditzy dress and boots – my ‘uniform.’  I think we all have a default dress code.  I have more of these dresses than I care to admit – boots too – not that I needed to remind you. 
EDITED TO ADD: The Nine West news has been postponed for the moment!

    I love those boots! I wish the event was 1 day earlier, as I’ll be in Soho for an interview tomorrow – well I might just have to make the trip down there twice in 2 days, for shoes it’s worth it! 🙂

    Love the content in your blog. Perhaps one suggestion though? You may want to fix the wide gap between your sidebar and posts and bring them closer together to make the blog more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. That is, however, if you intended it to be set up this way….

    Luv your blog, Karen! What tool did you use to cut your boots? They look FAB!
