Happy New Year everyone! Glad y'all survived the end of the world!!!


Hoo boy, do I love a good sweater. Of course it's a staple, but what makes a good knit essential is the ability it gives you to play with texture. I kind of went Chelsea girl a bit back when I wore this, pairing a whole mess of vintage pieces with my beloved Amber Sakai bias cut skirt. Do you ever feel like you can't really dress the way you want until you find the perfect pair of shoes or that one jacket? I was DYING for a pair of Chelsea/Beatle boots FOEVER until I found these vintage black boots at a local go-to vintage shop stop, No Relation. I kind of have big feet (size 10), so I find that I have a harder time finding vintage shoes. Boots tend to be easier since I can just grab a smaller pair of men's boots, but they're never narrow enough. These however, add enough polished androgyny.
