The Boots of Summer

Just uploaded these lovely sh*tkickers to the shop. These boots are giving me a heavy 80's West Coast, dusty Americana, road trip mood. Staring at them against the shiny, white surface reminds me of sandy landscapes across a flat desert plain. Can I get a faded tee and some Henley please?

Pattern play

An uneventful thrifting day threw me a bone, and turned up this very boho, yet very 80's, leather purse. I'm a sucker for shiny things, and the burnished metallic bronze finish over the stamped faux snakeskin was pushing my all my buttons.

I can imagine pairing this purse with a myriad of pieces: a fringed boot, a tie-dyed tshirt dress, a rumpled oxford shirt and dark denim, circa Brooke Shields in Calvins (see below). I think it works here against a cotton African print batwing jacket. Pattern play, texture and volume.
