bellatrix lestrange

sweater: zara, boots + dress worn as skirt: urban outfitters, sunglasses: ray-ban aviators

Bellatrix Lestrange, Voldemort's #1 groupie and all around badass--don't these shoes look like they belong in her wardrobe, well, besides for the fact that they were made by muggles. They're actually reminiscent of a pair of JC x FP boots that I realllly, really want. But these were a fraction of the price, so I settled since dishing out close to $200 for a pair of shoes, no matter how pretty they are, isn't something I do on the regular. Possible birthday present? I think so. And they'll even match my birthday splurge of last year-- my blood red cambridge satchel! (Aren't you glad I didn't refer to it as oxblood?) 

I haven't worn shoes with any semblance of a heel in over a month, since all I've been living in are flat sandals and converse. Apparently I forgot about the wretched pain of wearing any sort of heel, regardless how modest the height. In the beginning of the morning, "Oh man, this is no big deal. My feet feel fine, I was just being a big baby every other time I wore such shoes for extended periods of time." Fast forward 6 hours + countless hills and endless stairs ahead, the balls of my feet are asking me what they ever did to deserve such shit treatment. #dramaqueenproblems

  5. Ahh the heel wearing experience never changes...I don't think I'll ever become accustomed. But you're right, the boots are just OOZING Bellatrix vibes. I have to say, Mili...this is one of my FAVORITE OUTFITS of yours. The play on material lengths, the textures...ahh it's just perfect. So lovely. And the blood red satchel...!!!
    Ok, enough gushing...

  14. Hi Milli, you look wonderful and I like the way you styled this outfit, you really look like Bellatrix Lestrange)
    I hate wearing heels for the same reasons, health is more important than beautiful shoes, sometimes I feel like that:)
    Have a great time)

  15. haha, I actually discovered a pair of comfy high heels from my collection and it's a true miracle. I can wear them exactly like flats :P anyway, the layering of your black & white outfit is simply fabulous and those lace-up booties are so pretty!

  23. Bahaha the joys of heels! I go through the same thing and wonder if I'll ever get used to the pain. The price of fashion eh?!

    Have a great weekend,

  27. Haha, why do women put themselves through crap like that? I mean, I'm guilty of it too! Beauty is pain, I suppose.. Love the shoes, regardless. (And the HP reference!) That sweater looks extra cozy :)

  28. Yep, I totally feel you. Even if they're itty-bitty baby heels, I can't do it for more than a couple of hours. Glad I'm not alone (:

    These photos are absolutely stunning! I love that bold skirt and your edgy look. You totally rock it girl!

  29. wow our skirt is amazing!!! It's so avant garde- you wear it so well

  30. I always wanted to play Bellatrix Lestrange but I have to admit Helena Bonham Carter did a superb job! These shoes definitely look like a pair that she would own. I like them even better that your dream pair and I'm glad you didn't say oxblood. Cool stylish black and white look. Hope your feet don't hurt anymore. Wish you a great weekend!!!

  31. Blood red for the win! Haha, thank God you didn't say Oxblood, that would be pretentious :) But these boots are super badass, I love them. You can wear them in any season (I'd wear socks under them in the winter) and play it as sandals during summer. Hope they don't hurt your feet!
