a suitcase of treasures & inspiration to match

Posted in fashion by wideawakethoughts on March 15, 2010

My friend Alice has just returned from a whirlwind holiday in Asia and she’s back on home ground with a suitcase of treasures and inspiration to match. A designer with a curious nature and a defined sense of personal style, Alice seems to always find an edginess in the unpredictable, so I wasn’t surprised to find an endless parade of pieces pour from inside her worn leather travel satchel.

Apparently vintage Levis are as common in Thailand as peanut satay; sold by the roadside by men who don’t care for the stories the denim could tell. The boots were of her own design, made to her liking based on a sketch she drew in a taxi, lost, and then had to explain to a Thai cobbler in broken language.

    I love the boots, what a perfect dust blue and you cannot go wrong with Ostrich leather.

    This post has fueled my fire even more to go home to the Philippines via Singapore and Malaysia.

    the boots are rad, even more so because they’re one of a kind.
