When I saw these "Luxury Jones Boots" that One Part Gypsy posted about I immediately thought two things: Free People is selling them . . . therefore they must cost an arm and a leg . . . and that they look like the easiest DIY everrr.

Turns out I was right about the cost. After clicking over to Free People, I saw that the boots are selling for $438 a pair. The major problem here is that you don't even know what your overpriced boots are going to end up looking like since they are "found vintage".

I know what i'll have my eyes peeled for the next time i'm thrifting: cowboy boots and four belts. Any takers?

i bought a pair of samples for a lot of cash. the insides were terribly dirrrty and chewy and the belts are now falling off -they were glued..-. I love these weights tho, what can I say...they make me feel good
