Bottom: Vintage Levi’s Jeans
Finding the right pair of jeans with the perfect fit is a constant struggle… so I’m always on the hunt! I found my first favorite pair at a vintage store on Melrose Ave. They were a button fly, in a light wash (like the ones pictured here), with a slight bell leg and perfectly distressed and positioned holes in the knees. When I tried them on they were soft already and they fit to perfection, which never happens! Best part is they were $20!!! The pair I’m wearing in this post, I found in an Urban Outfitters. They don’t fit as perfect as my ‘faves’ but they are a tid bit more of a relaxed fit which I like a lot and was missing in my wardrobe. I also adore the distressing of the hem and the length.
Shoes: Fenty by Puma
These boots are the perfect combination of sexy/sporty/chic. If you’re a tomboy who still likes to strut ’round town occasionally in a stiletto, then these are a must have! These boots are reminiscent of the stiletto ‘Timberlands’ by Manolo Blahnik, made famous by Beyonce in her ’03 Bonnie & Clyde music video, feat. Jay-Z. I had a pair of those too – Ha! Lol! The soft leather and high quality hardware are top notch for a heel by Puma – thanks Rihanna 😉 – which warrants the high price tag. One of my favorite parts of this shoe is the circular barbell piercing on the zipper – so bad ass! I love pairing these with day dresses paired with funky feminine socks (ie. Rihanna’s socks for Stance). I would also recommend wearing these with a basic or graphic tee, ‘boyfriend’ jeans, and a fitted leather biker jacket in black or a bright/uncommon color.
