We all have our fashion holy grail; that one item that's going to bring our look totally together. mine are, and were, The Sam Edelman Balenciaga Knockoffs (that I haven't actually worn out of the house since I walk a couple blocks downtown and my ankles twist off-and that's in flats), a snake-embossed leather jacket, holey vintage concert shirts, Prada socks. But none would tie the look (The Nancy Sinatra/Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!/Let It Rock/Carine Roitfeld of course look) all together like a pair of thigh high boots.
These are from Steve Madden, $200 with discount. 22" tall, so on my 29" legs will probably be crotch-high.
*cheapest pair of pointy flat soled LEATHER thigh high boots I've ever seen
*on slutty scale, rate a 6 of 10 (could wear to dinner with Grandma, but not Grandpa)
*flat soles ensure wearability (see: Sam Edelman clodhoppers) and thus return on investment
*keep legs warm in winter vis-a-vis not having to shave as often
(ugh with this World Wide Love! skirt...I would sell my kidney for that skirt! Both! Then I'd have something to wear to dialysis)
If I lose my job, I will not be able to live in a boot.
Now if this won't get you to comment, I will just close up shop altogether:
I have invites to Shop It To Me, a cool website where you put in your sizes and fave brands, and they show you all the things in your size, on sale! I have already started coveting a pair of Marc Jacobs mouse flats for super cheap. If you want an invite, tell me: What is your fashion holy grail?
