So payday came and went, and I did some real bargains when Malvina and I did a tour around most of the vintage shops in our hometown. Black tees with random prints from Beyond Retro. I've been wanting a Harley Davidson tee for ages. Lewis mom jeans from Myrorna. Some basic black stuff from Myrorna and Humana.
And last but most definitely not least; a pair of Demonia platform boots from Beyond Retro. Now, I've been dreaming of a pair of Demonia boots since I was fifteen (my style back then was sort of Decora meets pastel goth), and I had even saved up to buy a pair, but circumstances happened and I never got around to it, but I've been half-heartedly searching for a pair to a reasonable price since then. So finding these at BR was heart-stopping. The price was good to begin with, but since the BR in my town is an outlet store, they were half of, so they were a really good price for a pair that seems to be barely used. I don't actually know what size they are, but they are a perfect fit.
What I have done to them though, is a little DIY that turned out great but could just as well had ruined them. See, this is the Transformer 800 boots, they were originally knee-high (like this), but because I have so slim calfs, knee-high boots never really work on me. And they were missing one of the straps as well so I figured I had to do something. So I decided to cut them off about mid-calf (don't try this at home, kids). Since the fabric is fairly thin, I could sew around the edge, and sew down the zipper in the back without a hustle. Unless you look closely you can barely tell of my abuse, and now they're much more usable as well. Knee-high boots with platform and that many buckles is a bit too much for me for basically any situation. But this is great. Super comfortable to walk in as well. Can't wait to properly style them!
