I’m following the lead of A-Dubs in today’s edition of Champagne Tastes and dreaming big. Usually I lust after things that I could conceivably (sort of) afford to buy but that I cannot reasonably justify buying because either the price or the object, or the price of the object, is simply too much. Of course, this leaves room for sale and serendipity to collide and sometimes my beer budget can overlap with my champagne tastes.
I’m fairly certain that won’t happen this time.
How I would wear them: Well, first I would need to decide whether I wanted the flat black or the stacked-heel oxblood. Although this is The Fantasy Wardrobe League, I don’t think that even I could conceive of owning two pairs of boots that are so distinctive and so similar. I’ve been wanting a pair of flat, black knee-high boots for a long time and I think that the practicality and versatility of a pair of wear-anywhere boots would win out. Then again, I could seriously kick ass and take names in those heels.
I would wear these with just about every skirt I own but I think they would look especially awesome with this skirt
. I would wear my black cigarette pants tucked into them, and maybe I would even venture into overdyed skinny jeans territory, which I would be able to wear because I would have to give up eating for a while if I bought these boots.
Unfortunately, I’d probably also have to buy the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Thursday Sword Dress, because how could I resist how awesome it would look with these boots and this cardi
(because I don’t do bare shoulders in the classroom)?
Reasons to hestitate: I’m pretty sure these boots are from 2008 and so no longer available. I’m also pretty sure they cost about 2008 dollars. Seriously,2008$. That’s entering A-list celebrity territory and they don’t have an A-list celebrity category in my profession. That I’m aware of.
Also, given the way I swan through my days, I’m fairly certain I would trip over the shoelace yardage on these babies. Either that or I would get them so hopelessly entangled that I would become trapped in my boots forever, just like Moira Shearer in The Red Shoes. A less graceful version, obviously.
What do you think, StyleNation, are knee-high lace-up boots missing from my wardrobe, at any price point?
Are they missing from yours?
N.B. Obviously Ann D and Viv did not compensate me in any way for this post. As noted above, I am not on the A-list. Yet.
