tabi

i finally have tabi boots in my life! so happy. i can't wait for my tabi socks to show up so i can wear them. i can see how these can be addicting. i already want another pair.

this weekend was pretty productive- we made an upholstered headboard complete with tufting (22 buttons worth!) it took 5 hours from start to finish (including bolting it to the bed frame) i'm glad it's finally done! last week jon found a really good deal on tolomeo wall lights ($50 each!), so we put those up over the bed for reading. now it's time to find new sheets, and a few other things. i'll take some pictures once it's done!

you can actually buy decent tabi socks at Daiso in Richmond or Yoko Yaya at Tinseltown. Those boots are wicked.

Stephanie said...

erica- they weren't the exact ones i wanted but i couldn't pass up that deal!

shay- thanks, i'll check the place at tinseltown. i knew they would have them in richmond but i'm much too lazy/busy to go all the way there ;)

martin margiela, i presume? i was on the fence about tabi boots for so long. finally determined i must have some. but i want a silver pair. they're out there...somewhere...in my size. i can wait. :)

my own jon (interesting coincidence, i'm also stephanie) ought to install some cool lights, too- but it'll have to wait. no tolemeo lights around here, i'm afraid.

enjoy your boots! SO cool.

Amanda said...

awesome- i've been wanting a pair too. i'll have to start searching more..

Those are great.

wow, i admire anyone who can pull the tabi boots off, i have been debating for so long but i think i would look too cartoonish.

Are they comfortable? And how do they run?

Xing said...

awesome boots!
but I'm more curious to see the headboard!

also, where did you find the lamps? what a great deal!

Stephanie said...

styleodyssey- yes, margiela. good luck finding the silver! there's a white pair on ebay right now but they're $1500! :(

-h- i found some hand knit tabi socks on etsy i think i might have to have for home/relax time

gs- yes, very comfortable and they run small.

xing- headboard won't be posted for a bit, but it's grey! ;) lights were from lightform

yui said...

me too! i have a black pair covered in white paint and love them so im looking for a beige pair covered in white paint..the thigh high and the shorter ankle boot versions would be nice as well...they are so versatile. muji has nice tabi socks, i always get mine there

Oh, the envy! ;)

the closure up the back of those boots is so clever! Love it!

and can't wait to see the "new" room!

If it matters, Irregular Choice sells tabi boots at a fraction of the cost of margiela. While there are none out right now, i'm sure there will be some for the spring collection.
