*pampa tactical boots c/o palladium, vintage shorts, vintage belt, vintage bag, american apparel tank, unearthen prism ring, necromance necklace

palladium sent me over this pair of crazy hiking wresting hybrid boots. truth be told, i had a VERY severe obsession with wresting boots from the age of 17 to about 21.

exhibit a:

exhibit b:

guys would question me at bars, wondering why on earth i had on wrestling boots... and it never failed to entertain me. when people don't like what i wear, i get true joy out of it. i think it's great to confuse, bewilder, or make people think, "why the hell would she ever wear that?" i get stuck on my own little self-invented trends... like currently: horrible animal print 90's boots. it's an ongoing phase that i see continuing for a very long time.
anyway, palladium has a shit ton of rad boots that you should check out. i think a girl looks totally sexy in a pair of lace-up beat-up boots.

The boots, bag and necklace are all totally brilliant!

Yup, I can totally see myself channelling my inner Tank Girl in those beauties, I bet they are comfy too. Who cares if peeps don't get your style, like Mae West once said: "It is better to be looked over than overlooked"! I think your style ROCKS and I think I'm a little bit in love with that fabulous bag of yours...x

MADELINE said...

Haha I am so bummed that I missed out on your wrestling boot phase! I especially like that the bottom picture appears to be you in a swimsuit and wrestling boots. Dressed!

Those are brilliant boots! Exactly the kind of thing I need for the impending weather up here in Canada. Love.

I love wrestling boots. You pull this look off very well. You look beautiful.

Zoё said...

You always look so effortlessly hippy!
I love the lace up boot look, definitely considering a pair now. And same, I love to wear stuff -even it's only just one thing- which make people question what I was thinking when I got dresssed that morning!

Ummm and why should you not be obsessed with boxing shoes? I had a pretty long obsession with them as well (come to think of it, from about the same age to about the same age) when I found an amazing pair at Naturalizer. Yep. Naturalizer. It ended when they fell apart!

From 17-19, my favorite pair of comfy shoes were of the wrestling-style ilk.

I totally love your style and the way you combine grunge with hippy and really pull it off. What a cute bag too.

The Key To Chic said...

The boots add a tough but casual element to the look. I love the mix of showing some skin with the shorts, but having a practical boot. Such a good balance.

Leticia said...
