Caught In The Fire



Rick Owens Lilies Top (buy here) / Helmut Lang Leather Leggings (buy here) / Maison Martin Margiela Tabi Boots (buy here) / Alexander Wang Bag / Alicia Hannah Naomi Jewellery (buy here)

Heading out tonight to two different events revolving around jewellery – one is a media preview for a soon-to-launch jewellery and accessories online store with a twist, the other is the NMIT Jewellery Silent Auction; a fundraising event for graduating jewellery class at NMIT’s end of year exhibition. My graduating class will be having our own silent auction for the same fundraising goal in about a month – so if you’re in Melbourne please keep an eye out as I’ll be posting details soon.

I was so excited to pair these tabi boots with my leather leggings, I’ve been envisioning this leather leg effect for months and am really excited to finally put it together.

For those asking about the tabi boots – they are quite comfortable although slightly strange to walk in at first, and if you’re buying from recent seasons they are true to (Italian) size. Just don’t forget to pop into Daiso because you’ll need some tabi-toed socks to wear them with! I had to buy the men’s size because my feet are so big.


You look like some extravagant leather-legged deer. I like it!

You look freakin’ amazing in all black! Not everyone can pull it off but you do it with absolute class.

Darkly gorgeous.
For my Margiela tabi boots, I could never find quality tabi socks, or even toe socks that weren’t garish, so I improvised (idea via Stephanie at Grey blog): I wear regular socks, toe area slightly loose, then insert feet into boots.
