High on Boots

Calf-covering creations are even finding their way onto the spring runways! At left, Marc Jacobs wrap espadrilles.

There are so many boots I covet. Anna sui is sweet. Brocade is unusual. Halston is just to die for. Hmmm I just need to sell my legs to get all those I reckon. I wonder if my legs are actually worth that much in any case.

After all that these boots will be just sitting in my closet.

You are going to think this is the craziest thing but... I love the look of boots... but they make me feel claustrophic... I am an open shoe kind of girl all year round and in my home and out it's mostly flip flops.
GREAT COLLECTION!

That caramel flat wedge with the side snaps is amazing!

Tala said...

I'm such a boot junkie! I'm just itching to get my hands on a new pair... I love the roundup you did of this season's looks. As much as I'd love to buy a really different and fantastical pair- I think I'm going to invest in a classic pair- like the tan/brown leather boots with the wedge heel, something that can be both dressed up and down.

Emily said...

those caramel colored ones with the buttons are amazing!

agnes said...

i am not so sure about those Givenchy HC boots. you know, when things don't even look good on the models, you know how it's going to look on you.

I love that Sergio Rossi Florentina lace boot
though. They are WOW!!

Pamcasso said...

those Viktor and Rolf ones are amazing.

PS- I mentioned something I found through you on my post today.

lisa said...

I really love boots up to my knee, but I don't usually like them past my knee. I love how in the winter, they help to keep (at least your lower legs) a little more warm! :)

Lovely post as always, so many lovely boots to look at! :)

maveri_ck<3 said...

i just commented- but it didnt go through :( anyhow-- what i said was, great boots! im not too much a fan of the ones that go above the thigh. My faves are the ones that fall right below the knee. So many boots- crazy!! I love seeing them all though.

Paul Pincus said...

viktor and rolf padded superhero-inspired knee boot.

Susanna-Cole said...

Aw, I hate flash images! But actually if you hit the "ctrl" + "alt" + "print screen" keys on your keyboard, and then open whatever photo program you use and hit, paste, and then just crop the screencapture until it's just the image you want... then you can get the flash pictures. ;) I actually do that a good bit, and I don't know... I mean I think it's ok to use photos as long as credit is given and you're not claiming them as your own or anything. Or unless the site or something requests you do not use the photos anywhere else. Besides I only use images and such on my blog, and I really doubt anybody is going to sue me and my little blog or even care! haha :P

Fashion_Girl22 said...

Oh Those Louboutins left me stunned! I would by them just to stare. I'm not so sure how that would work in an outfit. <3

Gah, I can't wait til fashion week is over so I can get out my blog tags. I don't want to do it now, becasue it'll get over looked becasue of the eviews. :[
