Wearing Ann D sandal-boots

I've been spending some quality time with my Ann Demeulemeester sandal-boots since they arrived last weekend!
I ordered this floppy black hat from American Apparel after I did my hat post. I'm very happy with it, it can be so hard to find floppy hats.
Today I am also wearing a lace slip from Anthropologie (purchased years ago), a mohair Prada cardigan from F/W 07, a wrap scarf purchased in Tokyo, Alex and Chloe deer horn necklace
It's time for me to go to the meetup at Rugby! I am so excited, I can't wait to meet some of my readers.
xx jane

  10. I’ve wanted a floppy hat forever. I think I’m going to purchase this one from American Apparel as well – it’s just perfect. And, as you said, it is hard to find a decent floppy hat!

    How hard are those Ann D. shoes to walk in? The laces look a little painful, like they should be pinching into your skin or something.
    BTW, I love your blog!

    I had a dream that I was wearing these boots, and my friend told me that they were ugly. However, I think they’re kick-butt! My friend has no taste anyway, and she wears sweatshirts everyday. HmMmMm I also seeem to remember your hat making an appearance in my dream. It’s so weird, because I could perfectly imagine the feeling of the laces on my bere feet, and the snug-ness of the hat. I dig your blog the most. It inspires me to finally wear all the vintage clothing I have bought over the years, but have been to lethargic to wear. I’m declaring next week vintage clothing week, even though it’ll only be me participating. You’re a great writer, and vair fashionable. Keep it up!

    Looove the boots! I second Alice in saying no chance of getting (or affording) them here in Canada. I have been tempted to figure out a good DIY for those boots since you first posted them… I could see a faux leather converse-esque boot being doable… remove the tongue, trim and re-grommet the edges, replace laces with longer, thinner ones, or maybe a soft ribbon to be nice to the toes!

    I would very much like to buy a pair of the puffy shorts that went with last years S/S 2009’s dress I bought.
    It is the rather grecian puffy wrap around with two strings mini dress that has the puffy shorts underneath it in black.
    Would you have a pair you would like to part with or know someone that does?
