I bought some cowboy boots. 🙂 I found these at Goodwill for $6.00 and they were almost perfectly what I’ve been looking for—they’re more of an ankle boot and they’re rugged. It was a very easy shoe to buy, needless to say.
I wasn’t planning on it, but today I was inspired to DIY these straps. There are two black, pleather straps from an old, old purse, and I had a black, studded belt that was too small for me so I cut it in half and, voila! Also, if I need a “plain” boot look I can just slide the straps off.
There are several inspirations for this look, but a very wonderful blogger from London–living in New York (Karen from WhereDidUGetThat) has definitely inspired me. Her shoe collection is massive yet very versatile! She can wear heels one day and studded Converse the next. This is one picture of a very small portion of her collection and you can see there are lots of shoes that I gathered the inspiration for the rugged look of my boots. =)
