La Fille Atomique

I don’t hate on girls that can afford Alexander Wang’s latest sweater or whatever animal print Miuccia Prada has decided to adorn her S/S collection in. In fact, I would love to be one of those bloggers lamenting the fact that her A.F. Vandevorst shoes are on back order. But the truth is, I’ve got a very tight budget with no real allowance for new clothes on a regular schedule. What extra money I do have is usually spent on my cats and current foster kittens (sad, but true) or used to vamp up the apartment I share with my boyfriend. Occasionally I even treat myself to an expensive hunk of cheese from Whole Foods.

The point is, I don’t chase trends simply because I cannot afford it. If I’m going to spend good money on new clothes, they’re going to be classic staples (say a sturdy pair of jeans or a warm winter coat). I only allow myself to indulge in of-the-moment-trends if they’re cheap enough that I won’t care if I can’t wear said item in six months. Enter these fantastic shoes.

Brown leather riveted clogs with a real wooden heel, reminiscent of the Chanel/Jeffrey Campbell clogs from this past spring collection. I don’t have $1,200 to buy the Chanel originals and I won’t let myself spend $135 on the JC knockoffs that I know will be passe by winter. That’s why I think the shoe gods were smiling on me when I so randomly found these clogs on sale at Spring, Aldo’s younger, cheaper sister, knocked down from $70.00 to $14.95. Yep. Almost 80% off. No biggie.

first off, i love that you're so down to earth, realistic, and caring. second, i think you look amazing. that outfit is so cool (and kind of sexy). those shoes are awesome, and look AMAZING on you. love your ink, and you even have awesome ankles (last photo). the bottom line, you're a rare breed, you're beautiful, you dress awesome, and you're boyfriend is a very lucky man.

Still don't know if I'd be willing to shell out even $15 on a pair of clogs, but this look definitely works on you!
