I'm All Patriotic and Shiz

This outfit is very Fourth of July. I’m on the verge of wearing a full out flag here. Gotta love this sweater. I bought it years ago in Barcelona in the men’s section of Bershka. My guy friends could not get over that I would literally shop with them (in the same section). You know what, sometimes I like my things with a little extra bagginess ok? 

I don’t know what I’m doing in these next two pictures. Something tells me that in the last one I’m yelling at the BF. The hand gestures and open mouth (the whole mid scream look I’ve got going on) lead me to believe I was mad. Who knows though, maybe I was doing a new dance.

So something really cool happened. I turned ordinary Forever 21 shoes into Prada-esque platforms. By saying “I did this” I mean I took it to this awesome shoe guy in St. Marks, Boris, and he put platforms on for me. I’m very happy with the end result. Particularly the bottom part with the ridges. Awesomeness. I can’t wait to wear these babies with my bell bottom jeans. 

These also scream patriotism. I mean look at the blue and white wedges. I’m a walking American flag in this post.

I’m a little slow and did not take a before and after picture. All you’re seeing is the after. Just imagine that the rafia ended about where the white platform ends. This man is amazing and sawed off some of the rafia and put on platform instead. He’s great. He also does studding. I’m debating on whether or not to take some Target loafers in to get studded Mui Mui-esque. We shall see. 

Happy Fourth of July!!!
