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 :)
