stylenomad 's Thoughts:

When you make your own clothes, you can afford to add mischievous little details. My roommate and I were atypical students living in Manhattan who had rain boot painting parties while watching Kamikaze Girls on loop. I love the streamlined look of Hunter wellies and the cute prints at J.Crew but couldn’t bring myself to spend $100 on rubber so I bought a pair for $30 and painted them myself.

Fine arts background to the rescue! They go with my roommate’s pair- on one side the dolled up Lolita mannequin holds a silver pistol and shoots my roommate dead (um.. on her boot) while the other side just depicts a woman with an umbrella and tea cup (yes random). The spine of the boot is a four-line quote from the movie- two lines on mine, two lines on hers. It sounds morbid but you’ll understand if you watch the movie.

The jacket I also ‘designed’ and made back when I was in Canada during the summer. Purchased pinstripe silk at Mood and brought it to my sewing teacher. We changed up a basic sportswear jacket, slicing it open at the center front, sleeves, pockets and hood and adding in organza inserts. I found the button at M&J Trimmings and thought it would be quite a funny and superfluous detail to finish it off. Alas no details of jacket this time ‘round.
