platform creepers

That was the first thing that came to mind when I cut/pasted this first picture onto the blog; flat-like cap and big boyish shoes….

underground originals shoes
boyfriend jeans

Valentino dual clutch
beaded blouse

Bead blouse: Vintage.  Similar from All Saints (on sale). Jeans: Forever21 (ripped up).  Creepers: Underground Originals at Trash and Vaudeville. Try Farfetch or Asos (dye them). Cap: H&M. Similar from Free People. Clutch: Valentino Similar from Claire Vivier. Watch: Gucci
God I miss wearing creepers. Built in height – no heels required and so flipping comfortable?!!
They were originally two toned and I dyed them all black since I couldn’t find them in my size.  Here’s pictures of how they looked before. I’ve lost the shades in that original post and I’m about 2 seconds away from buying a new pair  esp with this 20% off code.  I loved em!
You’ve seen this top before.  It’s so intricate it makes sense to clash it with old denim although I could see a cute matching mini with it – something like these from All Saints.

Speaking of they have a sale on at the mo.  Saw my fringe ankle boots for less than half price here.  These biker ones are a good alt.

    I finally caved on some creepers. I am hoping they don’t make my feet look too clunky. I have big feet already. I like how you wear them!

      oh good!! hey if I can wear em with my big ol feet then you can for sure. I LOVE them!! Try em with baggy jeans to start and try long ish flare skirts and skinnies later.

      I really lucked out on this top. I’ve never found anything like it before or since.

    Loving the embellished top! I like that you paired it with ripped denim. πŸ™‚

    I realllllly love that top. I never find any good ones when I shop of thrift. I think everybody snatched up the good ones.

    • Karen says:

      I hear you. I feel like that in some shops. It’s really timing and knowing it’s hit or miss with each visit. I’ve never seen any top like this ever since. I doubt I will ever too. It was a random luck of the draw.

    I love how you paired this amazing sequence top (vintage), with those ripped BF jeans. AMAZING!

      Thx! Always like to dumb down something fancy with denim.
