T-shirt (Cambodia), Shorts & Belt (vintage), Bag & Boots (Vietnam), Bracelet (Agent99)
When I showed the Vietnamese bootmakers a photo of some leopard print, cuban heeled, elasticised panel ankle boots, these Louboutin-inspired platform knock offs weren’t exactly what I had in mind. Despite the obvious elements that were “lost in translation” (aka. everything), I’m just happy to have a new part of my body in which I can now clad with leopard print.
My schedule for this week seems to have accidentally gone to shit. I intended to throw myself head first back into work however with a lingering cold that won’t go away and keeps me from sleeping at night, plus the intense urge to spend as much time with my boyfriend before he flies to Bali for a surf film this week, I guess I knew I was fighting a losing battle. So my apologies for not updating the store yet!
However does my cool tourist t-shirt make up for this? On the front it says “Same same”. On the back it says, “… But Different”! They were everywhere in Cambodia and Vietnam and for $2 a pop, it was well worth stocking up on novelty sleep (and occasional, day) wear.
