je veux, je veux, je veux!

6 May 2009

The above is my Parisian alter ego, stamping her  p e t i t e , Blahnik-clad feet, hands balled in fists with the strap of a black Chanel 2.55. Oui, whining like a Dior-bib-wearing five year old.

danny-roberts-teeSo I kinda sorta want this tee.

Danny Roberts is one of my favorite artists, ever – so a tee-shirt collaboration with Borders & Frontier featuring The Girls With Glasses (Chanel, j’adore!) is simply an ingenious idea. It is too perfect to pass down. My Parisian alter-ego wears it with denim, cuffed shorts and black opaque tights, with little black booties and a fedora. Balenciaga City in hand. She also stomps around with that particular tee, lame leggings, and pumps. But you see, my alter-ego is quite the selfish one and refuses to share with me. So my only hope is for the Danny Roberts tee to wander into my open arms.


Yes, I am perfectly aware that it is near summer. Yet my love for  b l a c k , l e a t h e r  b o o t s  is season-less. A portion of my heart shall, forevermore, be dedicated to black boots of all sorts. Ankle booties, knee-highs, over-the-knee. Flat, heels, stilettos. So long as they are black and leather,  I shall be satisfied. I am currently addicted to browsing Office Shoes; I hereby declare it to be my new favorite shoe site. Simply on the basis that they have a wide selection of, well, black leather boots. The trinity I’ve collaged above are on my highly coveted list. Darn the economy. And my anorexic wallet – I blame the fact that I am a student.

    LOVE the tee, so cute! And every year I’m on the quest for the perfect pair of black leather boots! I’m determined to find it this year…a nice pair of riding boots 🙂

    I saw a couple of nice styles last time I entered a Office store (around a month ago)… but I was looking for flats, so I focused on them =)

    LOVE the tee. I wish I had as sexy an alter ego as yours. I think mine stomps around in worn plimsoles and pjama tops haha. Btw I had a what to wear issue. What to wear to the theatre or the opera?

    So cool, what a great post.

  31. 6 May 2009 8:15 pm

    Ooh, I want that shirt too now!! I’m so amazed that Danny Roberts is doing a t-shirt collabo. You know, I’ve been craving a pair of black boots too, but I think I’m gonna go in the motorcycle/Doc direction rather than the vampy.

    I love your style of writing. “Anorexic wallet” is a great term that made me smile. I have a similar said wallet, though I’m in denial. Great picks, and I agree that you can pretty much always get away with wearing black leather boots. Checked out the shoe site, and I like the 360 degree action they provide. 🙂

    xo, Becs

      becs: Aw thank you darling! Haha, I tend to refer to my wallet as the anorexic one ;]. Isn’t the 360 degree feature amazing! Genius!

  34. 6 May 2009 11:22 pm

    I’m sure that tee with knee highs sticking out of the tops of boots would look really cute. Or even just the tee with knee highs. Or even just the tee.

  35. 7 May 2009 12:01 am

    That t-shirt looks so awesome!
