Isabel Marant studded Otway Boots

Ok, I saw these Isabel Marant studded Otway boots on the runway F09 – I love them. I saw them again on JakandJil, love them more…Then, Martina has them – I was getting anxious and knew for sure I would get them. Thank you to lovely Martina and sweet Sofie for helping me to find the boots. After months of waiting, they finally arrived…I had the same feeling with Sofie toward them..disappointed. They are overpriced for their fabric, the workmanship, the quality, I think…They can’t not refund, store credit only and who know if I find things I love at their store…Then, just keep them for my first IM shoes. I actually LOVE the style very much, just wish they’re half of the price that I payed for. Well, what can I say…They’re looking more handsome in the pictures than in person. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
Um….I keep them!
One of my beloved Rick Owens jacket F09. I madly love this jacket, it’s such a cool, edgy, futuristic looking one. I wore it with RO dress.
Love everything about this jacket; the shoulders, the collar, the zipper, the front-cut, the wings in the back, the leather texture…just awesome!
Home Cooking: pan roasted chicken with ginger and basil.
As you know, I love cooking. It’s one of my hobbies. I cook alot of traditional Vietnamese food, some Chinese and Thai dishes. I also enjoy making up my own creative recipe and this is one of them. I served with baby agurala, heirloom tomato and balsamic vinaigrette. Pinot noir from Oregon completely compliments the dish…yum!

Ingredients: skinless quarter leg chicken, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, sugar, oyster flavored sauce, seasoned soy sauce, sliced fresh ginger and fresh basil leaves.

Method: clean the skinless quarter leg chicken, pat dry the chicken throughly with paper towels. Sprinkle over each quarter leg chicken with a little garlic powder, black pepper, less than 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp oyster flavored sauce, 1/8 tsp seasoned soy sauce and let it sit for a few hours or overnight. Hot pan with cooking oil with high heat, put the chicken in for about 1 minute. Then, cover the pan with lid, turn the heat down to medium for about 7 minutes. Turn chicken for another 7 minutes, continue cover the lid. Now, throw in fresh slice ginger and fresh basil leaves, still cover the lid, let it sit for 5 minutes with medium-high heat…done! Ok, you’ll see the chicken has nicely golden color as in the picture and it’s ready to serve hot. It’s easy to do, you can substitute ginger, basil with your favorite herb. Enjoy the meal!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend with family and friends!!!

Kisses…Hanh 😉

  3. Hi Hanh!
    what an amazing purchase! I'm waiting for this boots too!
    no… I didn't won the lottery! 😛
    I just bought a copy from hong kong on ebay and now I'm waiting them to arrive. I'm sure that I won't be disappointed about the quality (that I imagine won't be very high) but I paid around 50$ shipping included… who cares if they are not so good?? 😀
    I can't wait…
    about the outfit… you look perfect as usual and is a pitty that this boots are overpriced… from the pics they look absolutley perfect!

    the food also look very yummy!

  4. Actually I really like the "Oversized studded details" (so electrifying) idea, AND the way these boots' "Futuristic-like" shape reflect your "GLAMazon-esque" Soul !!!
    ps: I wish you an Excellent Week-End too Dear.

  5. Oh I love your jacket!! And love how you wore it with those booties – they do look great in pictures, will have to trust you on the real life thing :) The food looks delicious, I'm such a food fanatic that I can definitely appreciate the sight of a nice and tasty meal!

  6. Oh how sweet you are!
    It was a pleasure for me to do that for you, Hanh!
    So sorry to hear that you feel a little bit disappointed about the quality
    but I have to say they look so stunning on you!
    I never wore these booties with tights and a dress … I LOVE YOUR OUTFIT!
    Hanh fabulous from top to toe! 😉

    Enjoy your weekend with your family!!!!

  7. The jacket is also a big favourite of mine! I totally get the futuristic feeling (that I love a lot).
    And too bad about the boots! If you're really disappointed you might return them?

  8. I love your style so much, did you know you're one of my ultimate style icons? Too bad the boots aren't too nice in real life, they do look great in photos. That RO jacket is just heavenly!!

  9. Hi Hanh!

    Thank you for leaving the first comment in my blog!

    The jacket looks really great on you. I like your shoes, decorative and rock style are very you.

    I like to see your cooking post. That makes me want to try making vietnamese.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. that RO jacket is phenomenal. You looks stunning. the tights are phenomenal too. Why not just sell the boots, im sure there is somebody out there going crazy for wanting them.

    It's a lesson im learning that for more pricer items, that it's not worth risking it if i havent seen or tried it in person before. which sucks because a lot of the stuff i would like is easily accessible to me where i live.

  11. Aw Hanh, what is it that dissapoints you? They look stunning, and I think they will suit summer dresses just as well, so you can get lots of wear from them. But I know somethings just dont fit our style when we get them finally, it happened to me before – my moto is that there is always ebay! x

  12. love the boots! and the jacket…
    I'm still looking for the perfect pair of booties and leather jacket!

    and I can't believe I haven't discovered your blog earlier…


  13. I feel the same way about the boots. I don't have them, but I remember seeing the actual prototype from the runway, which was very well-made and then later on I was very shocked that the quality was much worse in the stores. I really think they should have priced it at about half of what they're doing… 800+ EUR for a pair of studded ankle boots from this brand is too much… by the way, last season's chain boots are still available in-store and I must say the leather is very thin and the chains very cheap-looking as well, so I think in general you need to be careful with IM shoes.

    But as usual your RO jacket is amazing and hopefully in Jan., I'll find something nice in the RO boutique on sale 😉 Hope you had a lovely weekend!

  14. Sorry the quality of the boot isn't what you expected.. but they photograph great! You look esquisite like usual Hanh… oh and the chicken looks delish! Take care.

  15. Hey sweetie!!

    I hope all is well, gorgeous!
    First: Two hands down (or as others say: KUDO) a million times for that uber-fierce Rick Owens jacket! Well, Rick Owens is like GOLD these days. You can invest into his amazing leather jacket designs not thinking about it for even one minute and the leather jackets will never lose their beauty, their uniqueness, their quality, their fierceness.

    Buuuuuuuut: you ennoble it!

    Well…. What can I say to the IM boots experience…. This was one of the most disappointing things in the last years. Gladly I could had returned my boots and sold another one which had arrived the same time….
    I've canceled all pre-orders and will let all IM boots go to other fashionistas…
    That whole experience freaked me soooo off :(

    Big kiss and much love always,

  16. This boot compliments every single outfit!! It lightened up your whole outfit with the studs. You can wear this boot with anything. I think that's why it's expensive. Very practical!! You will see yourself wearing this boot quite often.
