Isabel Marant Rock n' Roll Boots

We're in the thick of Paris Fashion Week and I've been following style.com religiously (classes be damned!). In my breaks between finance and business leadership I rush to the computer lab to see what new shows have been posted in the 1.15 hours I've been held hostage in the classroom. This garners more than a few stares from my fellow business classmates, who rush to the computer lab to see where the DOW is currently.

Isabel Marant showed her collection, dubbed "A little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll," to the fashion elite in Paris yesterday. I could have lived with out the country bit, but when it came to her chain wrapped slouchy boots...in the words of Rachel Zoe: "I DIE!" Remembering an old pair of Cole Haan boots I had stashed in the back of my closet, I wasted no time fashioning a pair of my very own.

Original

Before


What You'll Need:
Slouchy boots
Chain

Super glue or double stick tape

Pliers


Fasten the chain to the back of the boot using super glue or a piece of tape (depends if you want to remove the chain later on down the line). Wrap the chain around the boot several times, working upward. When you reach the top, connect the chain together using pliers.

After

Now you have your very own pair of Isabel Marant boots, months before they become available to the masses! Play up the rocker vibe by pairing them with skinny jeans, or tone down the look with a flirty dress.

Is it wrong that I love the idea of sweatpants being paired with the originals? They do remind me of Chanel though [the chain look]

I personally would add bigger chains to your version, but I'm sure it'd be harder to deal with in a real life walking around with chains going all over the place.

I think this might be your next project: http://d.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20081001/capt.4a8fee19183d44dfb7f3227dee015e8d.france_fashion_par107.jpg?x=207&y=345&q=85&sig=qfrT501yubkfJob3dqcKww--
or at least mine. Obsessed!

I love the first picture for Isabel Marant Boots. However, I love Isabel Marant Sneakers deeply, just like pictures at http://www.isabelmarantbasket.co.uk.

I love Isabel Marant Sneakers more than the boots.
