The skyscraper boots

The skyscraper boots

I recently got these crazy platform wedge boots from eBay but I'm thinking I should modify them a little bit. They are quite flattering to the legs in this length but I'm hesitating whether or not I should shorten the leg to make them look something more like these Vivienne Westwood boots or the Rick Owen wedge booties. I guess I'll just see how they work with different outfits and see if the shortening is necessary or not.




Boots: Shop4phree via eBay


To keep them long or short: that is the question.

Rickin kengät törkeän mageat, ehkä kuitenkin pitäisi ensin nähdä sinun jalassasi nuo pidemmätkin :)

I personally wouldn't mess with them, but that's just my opinion. If you feel confident shortening them, then fine.

Cafe noir: Indeed!! I'm a giant with those. :D

Jemina: Owensin kengät ovat kenkäkarkkia, mutta valitettavasti loppuunmyyty kaikkialta. Kuvaraportaasia tulossa hyvin pian, sitten voi antaa uuden tuomion. ;)

KB: Thanks for the opinion, I just have to test them more and see how they work.

Anonymous: Those shoes on the runway look fab but I'm not sure how the shorter length will look with my height. I have to see about it...

Sugar Kane: Thanks. I think I just might keep them long. :)

Anonymous: Joo, totta. Kiitti!

Fröken lila: Thanks for the tip and pictures to come!!

tricky ! i'd say they'd probably look better shortened to be honest, but then again it might mess them up totally - hmm

I love these!!
I think they'd look great short, but they look just as fantastic long so I wouldn't risk anything going wrong!

Krista: Yeah it's a very tricky question... hmm..if they don't work with my outfits, I might have to shorten them..we'll see.

VANESSA DATORRE AND LEIRE URZAIZ: Thanks! I decided to put a little more springy banner up. :)

Eyeliah: I probably won't. :)

Miilia: The new spring items will be up in the following weeks. It's been too wintery to shoot the spring catalogue but it's coming soon, so stay tuned. :) I will inform here and also on our shop's blog when the new items are up.

There is nothing more than this: YeP!:)

She's dressing up: The risk is always there, that's what I'm afraid of. Let's see how they work with different outfits. :)

I think it depends on which length you will get the most use out of. I would let that guide me.

MollyCake: I'm beginning to think that might be the way to go. I really would like to use them underneath pants as well and now the top is too wide for that. You're right about taking risks. ;)

Snapandprint: Yeah that's true. Thanks!:)

Phamzy: Thanks!!! :)

Personally I'd leave them as they are. They are really cute!

Too hard, too hard... Maybe I'd shorten them. But wait... I don't remember if you have any "normal lenght" boots? Only shorter (Fendi) and over knee (don't remember the label) ones. Or do you?

Nyt vasta pääsin matkan jälkeen lukemaan uusimpia postauksia ja tärkeimmäksi asiaksi nousi saappaasi. Ehdottomasti lyhyeksi. Mustien pillien ja prätkärotsin kanssa nappiyhdistelmä.

Juu, ehkä nuissa on vähän liikaa toisaalta srippariviboja (takaapäin, kun korko näkyy) tai ysärimeininkiä (edestä kun plato on noin paksu) kun saappaat on kokopitkät. Mutta voihan vitsi kun noi ois mageet nilkkamittaisina! Kattelenkin nuita koko ajan nilkkurimittaisina silleen että kuva on ihan ruudun yläreunassa ja varsi rajautuu pois..:D Mutta nilkkureina nuo toiminee vain siinä tapauksessa että ne on nilkan kohdalta tarpeeksia kapeat sun jalalle, eli katkaistu varsi ei jää liian leveäksi. Mutta jos varsi on riittävän kapea, niin onneksi olkoon! Noista tulee vielä ihan killerit! Että suutarille vaan! :)

Ida: I have to see what to do with them, thanks for the opinion. :)

NinaV: You're absolutely right, I really don't have any normal length boots, at least not any that are nice. This is a tough decision!

Lori: Thanks! I think they will be a real killer when I crush peoples toes on the dancefloor. Lol. :D

Anonymous: Kiva, että saappaat innosti. :) Voi, että kun kutkuttais katkaista nuo saappaat!

Anonymous: Hei toihan olikin hyvä konsti katsoa miltä noi näyttäis nilkkamittaisina. Olen kotona yrittänyt vaikka millä tavoin rullailla noita varsia, jotta näkisin miltä näyttäisivät. Olet oikeassa, mulla kun on tälläset lasinilkat, niin varsi ei saisi olla liian leveä. Toisaalta jos jätän niihin hieman pitutta (ei ihan lyhyet, muttei pitkätkään kuten esim. Westwoodilla), niin varsi vois olla aika pop, vai mitä?
