Yeah I know, they’re last years collection but they just entered my subconscious and stayed there since.
Of course I didn’t have $10,000 to buy them then, and I still don’t have it now, but to find a perfect substitute for much more less money for them, or any other expensive item I like, was my specialty before and it still is. This was the case here too.
After the slow motion video I saw on Net-a-Porter Instagram I fell in love. I loved the whole Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2017 Collection, but the outfit so simply put together, black slim pants with knee-high boots and silver sweater was my favourite. Nothing special, nothing new, nothing already seen.
But, adding 3000 crystals to the boots and sweater is one totally different and amazing thing. It shines, it elevates you, it makes you feel special, and you would definitely not be missed where ever you go. The best destination would be Studio 54!
Maybe there are people who can afford them but only few know how to style and wear them. Rihanna is one of them.
This laid back yet glamorous style is so simple and wonderful at the same time, sparkling boots, lights ripped jeans, white T-shirt with oversized black leather jacket. My own version is a little bit different, after all, who can copy the Queen of Style.
Luckily, high street companies produced an array of homages. From over the knee boots, black sequinned mid-calf boots to little mirrors all over ankle boots. Walking through the Mall researching for the clients I spotted ones that reminded me of that sparkling YSL boots. The subconscious is crazy!
So I’ve put my all black outfit with boots and one with black pants and silver sweater. Crazy! Sexy! High class! Runway! Party!
I’ve put them on and it was love at the first sight. I know we don’t have Studio 54 any near here, or I’m not Rihanna to have places where to wear them but I was so happy in them that I had to have them. At the end, they were on sale and I thought “I can use them for the photoshoot for the blog.”
These are the ideas how to style them and naturally, I wore them more then once already and it was not only for the photo-shooting of this blog post. Few special occasions deserved their presence and I was happy to wear them.
