You and I, we may look the same

But we are very far apart.
There's bullet holes where my compassion used to be
And there is violence in my heart.


For some reason I am really enjoying perforated details in shoes and boots right now. Urban Outfitters has flats, boots and oxfords by Deena and Ozzy I believe, and they are really cute. So while perusing net-a-porter I came across these bad boys, and immediately decided that I needed to have them STAT or ASAP or whathaveyou.

Obviously the perforations, which I just mentioned, but also the silver color is amazing. It's just shiny enough without looking cheap or cheesy, and I love the silver capped toe. The model photo shows them pair with an all-grey ensemble and bare legs, but I'd wear these with black tights and a blazer. I think they would be surprisingly versatile and very wearable.







Also, I would like to add, August is NIN Month here at Deranged. Basically because it's their last tour ever *sobs* and I cannot go because alas, I am broke once again and have next to nothing saved for the school year. So every post is going to end with a NIN-related photo. This one happens to be the background on my Macbook Pro (the photo looks much better full scale, so I would suggest you click on it).

Robin Finck = amazingly hot and crazy talented!

  5. I'm really liking perforations and "holes" in general... eyelets and grommets and the like. There's a pair of black Opening Ceremony booties with grommets allover and I lust for them.

    Great pick!

  8. oh bb do not fear! I see many, many, many reunion tours in NIN's future, once Reznor realizes that the Earth does not gravitate around him. Something Scott Weiland should have realized pre-12 bar blues.

  12. The metal toe caps on those boots are gorgeous. I would be tempted to add some studded boot straps to them from time to time to toughen them up a bit. The way they resemble sheet metal is perfect.

  13. Zanotti is amazing at making boots that would otherwise be tacky, but they make it work. I love the perforated effect on these.

    Oh, and I saw NIN on tour last month. Amazing and very sad, because I knew this would be the last time. Love that you quoted NIN lyrics in your title as well. And I agree... Robin Finck is definitely talented (though he somehow always manages to date high maintenance annoying women). I still prefer him to Jeordie White or Aaron North though.
