Erin’s Style Diary: Thursday

What I’m Wearing Today:

  • vintage Chloe necklace
  • Dear: dress
  • canvas and copper thrift store belt–$1.99!
  • black wool tights
  • Zucca boots

Last winter when people first started talking about thigh-high boots, I got a little fixated on this pair by this cool Japanese brand, Zucca. Admittedly, they’re kind of heinous/tragically fashion victim-y, but at the time my obsession-addled brain liked how the buttery soft leather could scrunch up or down (so versatile!) and the fact that they were: a) flats and b) espresso brown made them seem a lot less slutty than black stiletto thigh-highs. Today I will give ‘em this: These monsters are comfy! Of course, nothing is more comfortable and infinitely wearable than my Dear: dress. This ultra-chic Korean couple in my neighborhood have a gorgeous all-white store (and dog named Dumbo!) and their design aesthetic seems to be very Japanese-meets-Belgian–think Comme des Garcons and Margiela–which I love. My boyfriend noticed that I was all swoony over this black sheath, and surprised me with it for my birthday. That was awfully thoughtful of him. Also, it has pockets. Yay.
