over-the-knee and in some mud





I'm currently nursing these boots back to life after underestimating how mucky the above pictured mud was.

Any tips for cleaning suede? Anyone? Help!

As for my current locale, yes, still in Nevada, not NYC. This week didn't quite work out flight scheduling wise, but I'm shooting for the last week of January. Thanks for all your well wishes for the interviews and while I'm at it, does anyone in the city need a roommate?? I'm clean, love pets (if you have them, I don't have any myself) and just need a little (OK, a lot) of closet space, but that's negotiable. Feel free to shoot me an e-mail! I'd love to hear from you.

Also, thanks guys for the blog feedback. I received quite a few requests for my face sans sunglasses. So here it is. In all it's (goofy) glory.

Hope you're all having a wonderful Monday!

Jacket: Leather biker jacket, H&M
Dress: White ruffled dress, thrifted, no brand name
Boots: Black suede over-the-knee boots, Topshop

  1. There are suede cleaning shoe brushes - they are kind of rubbery. You should wait until the mud dries and then brush it off.

  6. You should take pictures without sunglasses more! I'm digging the new locations as well. Is that H&M jacket a recent purchase?? I've been searching for a good leather jacket and haven't been able to find one that isn't cropped and weird...lovely dress too!

  18. If the brush alone fails I would try Ugg cleaner. Its made for both sheepskin and suede and cleaned the salt off some of my boots, including mu Uggs. Its also comes with a protecter that is supposed to help prevent.

  24. I think the easiest way to clean mud off the suede is go buy a suede brush. They usually have a brush on one side and a rubber eraser type thing on the other. Let the mud completely dry on the boot, use the brush to brush away all the particals gently. Then use a damp soft cloth and BLOT any leftover spots. Don't rub, you could rub any die out and damage the mat of the leather. Let that dry, clean thew brush and brush out the matt.

    Also, I LOVE that dress, it's just gorgeous. I like how you mixed the feminine ruffles with black leather.

  26. I always spray my suede boots with spray you can pick up at a shoe store! It kind of repels water and mud and what not! And I love this outfit. The exact outfit I really want to create! Love the feminine with the rocker elements!
