#TripleXXX Collaboration: Two Boots, One Outfit

IMG_0486

Today I am sharing the next up from my #TripleXXX Collaboration with Miss Sabado and Modern Vice.

I chose to style this look with two different pairs of Modern Vice boots.  The first are the western bootie, which I love because of their fringe AND because they sport a much higher heel than most of the Modern Vice Boots.  The second are the Handler Boots in a Slate Blue/Gay Snakeskin.  I LOVE how versatile this color is; you can literally wear it with anything.

This over-the-top outfit has a lot going on.  I chose clothing and accessories in mostly slate blue and gold.  Starting from the core of the outfit, her top is actually half of a vintage majorette costume I picked up at a Boston Flea Market last fall.  I have also worn this majorette costume as a toy soldier costume last Christmas.  I dug out a couple of photos of this look and shared them following the photos of Farrah below.

There are a LOT of accessories on Farrah in this look.  Starting from the top, she is wearing a vintage black and gold sequin hat.  This hat reminds me of the flamboyant hats that black women wear to church every Sunday in the South, where I grew up.  On Farrahs shoulders, she is wearing a pair of chain epaulets by BCBG.  Her belt is actually the original Fanny Pack from the victorian era– talk about being fashion forward! Farrah’s jewelry includes a gold ear cuff from BCBG, vintage starburst earrings, and a silver cuff bracelet from the 1980’s.
