Fall Grunge

Can I ask you guys a serious question??


Why are black booties SO ugly?! I see cute booties in brown, tan, grey, etc. all the time and they're adorable. Then I look at the same shoe in the black version and I think they're hideous. I recently purchased my last-year fave from Target in black (shown above) and I can't say I love them. Anyone remember Roger from the Nickelodeon show "Doug"? Yeah, that's me. #90sKid


Dress: Satori Crystal Boutique | Jacket: BlankNYC | Booties: Mossimo | Belt: White House Black Market | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | X Ring: Baublebar | Circle Ring/Necklace/Earrings: Rocksbox (use code KACIEBFF14 to get your first box free!)

Now let's ignore these booties and talk about the rest of this look. As soon as I saw this Willow and Clay dress from Satori Crystal Boutique I envisioned a grungy look perfect for a dreary day. Last Friday was chilly and rainy so I decided to bring my vision to life. All of my latest Rocksbox jewels plus this belt from White House Black Market and a leather jacket pulled it together. Even though I didn't feel completely comfortable in this look, I think it turned out okay. Oh well – ya win some, ya lose some! :)

Have a great week, dolls!

    1. I'm sure they will look much better with black skinnies - hopefully anyway, haha!

  3. I love those booties! I generally like my black booties with black skinny jeans or faux leather leggings, best though!

  9. This dress is so cool, especially paired with the tough leather jacket & booties! I'm getting a 90's feel from it :)

  10. I like the boots, especially with the funky print of that dress! But I do agree that they make so many cuter options in brown than in black. I have a black pair that I just don't love but have yet to find a replacement for!
