When I was 13 or so, I went through a tom boy phase. I remember wearing Timbalands, throwback jerseys and baggy pants. I think it was all based on the fact that 1. I could actually fit into the boys oversized clothes, and 2. I hung out with lots of boys and I low key wanted to be cool like them. But thankfully to God all mighty, I was able to emerge from that phase and be a girl again. But recently I had the urge again to re-explore the male look, or as It is called these days Androginy. The inspiration came from Big Sean's BET 2015 performance. I remember watching him prance around in his Burberry trench, white shirt and boyfriend jeans and I thought, hmmm I actually have everything he is wearing, and I can make it look better.
Thankfully I do not own any Timbaland boots so I paired them with Jcrew Elsie metallic pumps. These shoes are what introduced me to my blogger bae Economy of Style. I remember sending my sister a text message about these sold out shoes and vowing to find them, even if I had to go and knock on Jenna Lyons door. Naturally, we decided to collaborate on a post with these shoes, and paid homage to the Big Sean look, or as a good friend of mine calls it "The Black Inspector Gadget".
And here is a lesson for all the shoppers out there... if the shoe says sold-out go straight to Ebay, do not pass go, do not collect 200. I ended up finding these babies for less than a $100, and maybe you will find them too. ( I included a link below for them on ebay in various sizes. Good luck)
