rain-saturated denim


denim shirt - amarcord vintage | necklace, bag, rings - forever 21 | shorts - tjmaxx | shoes  - alice & olivia for payless

Running errands on a Sunday. Hence the...running shorts. I know, what was I thinking? But somehow I think this outfit works, at least for me, in terms of functionality and comfort. These heels are SO easy to walk/run in so despite being completely rained out (check out how saturated my shirt was after getting soaked... intense colorfying no?), I could still walk 20 blocks home. That's 5 inches y'all, which basically = dedication... to... hobovogue. Anyway. The bad news... my shoes got kind of soaked and I didn't notice until I took them off but the fabric lining the insoles/cushioning tore since it was so wet =( NOOOOOOO I guess that's what you get for buying $5 sale shoes from Payless. Thinking of investing in some super glue and seeing if I can glue it down.... any other wallet friendly suggestions for repair?

  1. I would rather try with a shoemaker - but mainly because I am such a clumsy person that I would more probably destroy them definitely than repair them :)
    You may just ask one shoemaker how much would it cost and then see if it's worth it :)

    I have a problem with shoes too - my heels from my previous post got completely destroyed after walking in the path full of pebbles and mini-stones. all leather on the sole is rugged :(

  18. If sweatpants can be dressy, why not running shorts?

    I love your nonstop glamour -- heels while running errands? Amazing!

  21. haha, I love your outfit and think it was worth ruining your shoes if only for the aesthetic pleasure of running through the rain in 5" heels. Hopefully you can hot glue them down and keep wearing them!

  22. I actually love the colour after the soaking it got! But it must've been terrible walking around in soaked denim. Sad about the heels -hope a repair job works out
