BCBGeneration Fancy

If you follow me on Twitter, you saw the boot saga play out and if not, you saw them in my latest What I'm Wearing... post. They're BCBGeneration Fancy and I'm completely obsessed with them.
I know I already showed them in the What I'm Wearing... post, but I was tired when those pictures were taken so I don't think it did them much justice. Here's how they look both ways on me:
Over the knee (or not - more on that in a minute) -
Rolled down - 
Ok, so clearly these are supposed to go OVER the knee, but these are more at the knee. This isn't the first time I've had this problem. The Chinese Laundry grey suede OTK boots I bought last year do the same thing. Annoying! I blame being tall and short waisted which gives me unusually long legs, apparently. Whatever, not much I can do about it. 

Anyway, I ended up paying full price for these which is something I try to avoid if I can, but sometimes you just can't. I got them at Belk and although a lot of boots were on sale, these weren't and aren't going on sale anytime soon (I checked). There was a coupon for 15% off, but it excluded BCBG (it always does). If I didn't love them, I would have pressed my luck to see if they went on sale at a BCBG store later on this season. That's worth doing for something you just kinda like. But I didn't kind like these - I loved them. When you figure in that I love them AND they're shoes I can actually wear right now (you have no idea how many of my shoes are collecting dust right now with the no heels thing), even Jared didn't argue, he told me to go ahead and get them. This is where it pays to be a shopaholic - you know when you REALLY love something and can immediately figure the odds of whether or not you should go ahead and get it :)

These are great! It is worth it to pay fully price if you love them and know you'll wear them constantly.
I have a pair of Nine West low wedges that I bought at full price. I wore them nearly everyday over the summer. It was worth it.

Screen Door Prep said...

Girl, those are hot! I am just sitting here feeling so old because all I can think are, "Man, those would be great to replace my black leather knee-high boots...wait, I can't wear black leather knee-high boots! I am too old to wear those! I don't even go anyplace cool enough to wear those anymore!" Ha!

(It's probably more about how "old" my lifestyle is now than my actual age, but ya know!)

I think they look fabulous both ways! Doesn't matter that they can't go OTK.

Hope u have a fabulous day! xoxo

Killer boots! Boots are one of the few things I will pay full price for, and I spend more on them then pretty much anything else. They're always worth it.

Oh you made the right choice on these for sure!! I think I like them "over the knee" the best.

Fashion Meets Food said...

Those bots are so cute! Bummer that the cannot be worn over the knee but very chic non the less. I can never wear OTK boots because I am only 4'11 it would look like the boots have eaten my legs.

Isabel said...

wobblinbetty said...

Jess said...

I'm right there with you when it comes to waiting for sales. I usually try to do that, but every once in awhile you just can't wait!

Great find - love them!

well, these ARE amazing boots. :) and they look fab on you, so sounds like they're totally worth the exception. ;)

la petite coquine said...

A great pair of boots, and I love them both ways! My shopping methodology is that if you love it, you should get it, and anything you feel lukewarm about, you pass on, which keeps your bank account intact!

Audrey Allure said...

Beautiful boots; even if they aren't OTK - at least you love them! They look great on you :)

Valerie said...

They are fabulous! I would have paid full price for those too. I love the way they look like two totally different pairs of boots when you fold them over. Adorable.

It's cool how you can roll them down! I prefer over-the-knee, but either way looks fantastic!

I totally know what you mean about buying shoes full price. I try not to too, but when you fall in love at first sight you just HAVE to buy them. Guilty pleasures haha. But my theory is if you wear them at least 20 times they pay for themselves if you calculate it out. haha I guess that's just MY justification for most of my buys lol.
