neighbor-wakin’, old bone-shakin’, Howlin’ Wolf hi-fi love

neighbor-wakin’, old bone-shakin’, Howlin’ Wolf hi-fi love

The more I think about it, the more I think I'm drawn to clogs for their hoof-like qualities. Clomp. Clomp. Clomp. People can hear me coming from a mile away with these clunkers on. Do you ever get attracted to unattractive things? I do pretty often. Scars. Asymmetricality. Garish prints. I don't know what it is, but sometimes there is something so satisfying about loving something unusual that others might shun. Strange...

Love Charles Vintage invited me to this awesome clothes swap that was started by Both Yellow Animals.  The pieces are such all so unique and fun to play with and it's been fun to see how past bloggers have styled them.  In this look I'm wearing the denim skirt - a denim skirt with volume? Amazing!

  4. I love how playful this look is, and I don't even think the clogs are ugly -- I mean, maybe they are, but my eyes have adjusted, because I think they look divine on you!

  13. Absolutely. Just think of McQueen's hoof shoes... anything but pretty in the conventional sense (and I do love my scars, too). Your clogs and outfit look fabulous. Happy weekend!

  15. Oh my, you've got all the trends ticked here! Denim on denim, clogs...! Normally I don't like either of those trends but you seem to be able to pull off anything and still look amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really wonder what it's like to walk in those :P They're probably something I would slip out of and fall flat on my face in the most awkward situation ever xD Next to that I still fighting the love-hate thing I have with them but I love the way you rock them!!

  22. Great denim on denim look! The skirt is so cute. I love how swingy it is!

  23. Love the outfit. love the shoes! I have been waiting for my clogs in the mail for ever!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know what you mean about loud shoes- I'm tiny, so the only way people know I'm coming is when they hear my shoes! Sometimes I like being loud, but other times it's awkward. As usual, great outfit :)

  28. I really love this skirt! Looks amazing on you! Love seeing a denim skirt that's not a tight mini... they're hard to come by!

  29. Love those big hooves. I feel like half my wardrobe is stuff that straddles the line between stylish and no-no. My boyfriend (and most men in general) would say it's all a no-no.
    You look so lovely here, though. And I can't get over how perfect your hair always looks!

  31. Beautiful. Love the clogs. They really suit you. And YES. I so find myself attracted to unattractive clothes (usually garish prints!). There is something satisfying about it!

    ReplyDelete

  33. Oh my,the clogs are truly wonderful. Though I cannot imagine walking in them.

  34. Denim on denim is amazing. I still need to find the perfect denim shirt to do the whole denim on denim thing.

    I agree. I love clogs for some random reason. I was at the store the other day and I pointed out the my friend that I wanted a pair of clogs and she gave me the weirdest look. Nonetheless, I don't care, i love clogs.
