as you can see, the designer boots are amazing... but with a price tag of $1400, they are nowhere near my budget.
to emulate the style, i used a pair of black slouchy boots i already had in my closet. i used some black velvet ribbon i had lying around, weaving it into two five-foot lengths of large-link aluminum chain (which is lightweight and cost effective - perfect for this project).
and... voila! my very own cheap but chic chain-wrapped boots. i can't wait to wear these when the weather starts cooling down!
