On Friday M and I went to the cinema to see the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel Gone Girl. Now I thought the movie would be good, but I didn’t expect to be completely blown away. It was such a good movie. We really had a great time. And this is what I was wearing:
I had to modify these Asos leather biker boots in order to wear them. Try as I might (unbuckling all those buckles didn’t help one bit), I couldn’t get my feet into these shoes. I have quite narrow feet but I have high arches and I guess that’s what makes getting into these kinds of boots super hard. I thought about returning them, but I absolutely HATE returning things, so I thought I’d cut into the sides. They are made from thick leather so I knew they would continue to hold shape and I wasn’t afraid of fraying either.
You’ve seen them on the blog before (the picture above) but I haven’t really talked about these boots. Ever since I altered them, I have been wearing them quite a bit. They are now really easy to put on (I don’t even have to unbuckle) so if I’m in a rush I just pop them on. They go equally well with dresses as they do with jeans, so they’re very versatile.
As for the rest of my outfit, I usually wear dresses when I go to the cinema but I was in a jeans mood so I wore my slightly polka dotted Zara skinny jeans, a favorite tee (David Bowie tee), my Red Herring real leather jacket and my New Look polka dot bag.

Oh gosh i don’t think I could cut into new boots! I panic if I have to do something tiny like cut a new buttonhole in a shoe strap!
It was a risk but worth it in the end 🙂
I loved gone girl! I hadn’t read the book so it was a complete shock! I love your 2nd outfit, that dress is lush. Gorgeous as usual x
I recommend the book, it’s really well written. And thanks, I live that dress!
I bloody HATED Gillian Flynn for the ending of that book so I’m swearing off the film, hahaha.
I don’t think there would be a way for it to have a “good” ending so I didn’t mind it :))
