rainelyn 's Thoughts:

okay so these look nothing like those coveted martin margiela sandal booties but OH WELL. i basically just diy’ed a pair of spats. got the idea from the uber sexy miss jordana of clutch22. love her!

UHM how weird are bubble dresses/skirts? i pinned the hem because the pouffy-ness was annoying me. i’m all about quick fixes- hm, i think that says a lot about my personality?

also i got a lot of q’s about the spats. if you don’t have an old pair of random boots lying around, i suggest going to the craft store and picking up leather/faux leather/suede/whatev floats your boat and attaching a zipper or buttons to hold them together. OR you could totally go MY route and velcro the ends together. see what i mean with quick fixes?

xoxo,
rain
