(boots Maison Martin Margiela x H&M)
Like carbon dating on adinosaur’sbone, my affinity for all things plexiis not something that can be traced back to an exact point in time. All that we know is that if you can see right through it and it looks overtly minimalistic, chances are I won’t be able to resist. So imagine my own surprise when I chose to not click home the above MMM x H&M booties when they hit stores last week. But Fate is an old friend of mine, so when I bumped into him hanging out with the booties (who were incidentally boasting a 50% mark down) at my local, yesterday afternoon, I air kissed him, as one does in this industry, grabbed themand dashed over to the till.
