Now, when I say “dalmatian booties” I don’t mean that these boots are actually made from real dalmatians. They just happen to, you know, look like to really cute (F-A-U-X) puppies on my feet, n’est ce pas?
These boots were an amazing gift from Ann Taylor‘s New York team, who scoured all over the states to find a pair in my size. Eventually they were tracked down in LA and then sent all the way to me in Toronto – thanks guys!! I first fell in love with these little bootie pups many many months ago at the preview for Ann’s much anticipated Canadian launch, and had been counting down the days until I got my hands on (and feet into) a pair ever since.
The jeans, are from Free People, a pair that I picked up at Plenty while in Vancouver in September. Admittedly, I used to live in Free People head-to-toe in high school, and didn’t think I would find myself in their clothing again since then. But oh how I was wrong, because these faded-black-but-not-grey-with-amazing-black-leather-side-panel jeans have hardly come off since fall hit.
The coat is another great find from Salvation Army (I really do love that place), that my eagle eye spotted from across the store. Not that the plush silver mink collar could be hard to miss. With the pussy bow blouse from Club Monaco sweetly tied underneath, I feared I was veering a little too far towards the ladylike-look for my liking. So I reached for my trusty black toque bring it back to somewhere in between hood rat and my fair lady right.
