I'm glad to see them back for the fall. I'm loving the suede ones, I want a pair of gray or beige suede boots. Great picks CC!

Ooh, the texture of the Burberry Prorsum is gorg! But I LOVE the color of the Chanel Resort 2011, Christian Dior, and Elie Tahari. I think the Christian Dior are my fave!! :)

Vintage and Cake said...

I do love a good boot, it is very hot here in London at the moment so will have to leave it for fall I think. There is a thin line between fashion chic and hooker ...but Gucci win it for me too. xxxx

HiFashion said...

Belle de Ville said...

Not for the shy, any of them are they? So count me in for the L.A.M.B and the Scott.

Thanks again CC. I always come away from your site a little smarter, and might even look a little smarter with your help :)

Jessica said...

Over the knee boots ROCK! In French they are called Cuissardes which I love that they are given an actual name (its shorter)!

I've missed you darling! Life has been hectic with travel and now I'm going to get to come home early so I'm excited for the change of pace!

Lannie said...

WendyB said...

Just went to the YSL show in Paris and saw his thigh boots from the '70s. You could easily wear them now.

Eszter said...

I love, love, love over-knee boots, I don't actually own a pair but I intend to buy one come winter

The Seeker said...

I just love them!!!
I'm so happy with mines, they don't go too high, but they cover the knee, so.... :-)

Luv dear CC

Juliet said...

I'm definitely going for this as soon as the heat will go a bit down!

They are amazing, although hard to think about in this heat :) I love the black ones, ALL of them! Hope you're having a great weekend!

The Original Swedish Blonde! said...

I'm not a snob in anyway, but I am a little bit over "lol" over-knee boots.
However, if I would have to choose a pair... it would be VW Red Label. :) Maybe it's because I like the whole ensemble.

Love your blog though. :))

Katie said...

I need some of these!

Nuheila said...

oh how I need those Badgley Mischka boots for fall. Stop teasing me...:)

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Carrie,

These boots are all fabulous, but I do think you have to be very tall to carry this look off.

Happy weekend
Hugs

Great collection...I wish they looked better on me. ha!

FASHIONconfectionairy said...

I love thigh highs, but every time I try on a pair..well I feel like a bit to slutty, but come on they rocked them in the 60's and 70's and looked fantastic!

Hot! I love the look of these boots!

Margaux. said...

I love the brown Christian Dior ones, such a great color, especially since you usually see over the knee boots in mostly black.

emily viveur said...

i'm loving the burberry prorsum and jeremy scott ones! i might get a pair this fall/winter now.

beckyxoxo said...

They look so great with mini dresses ! But I don't think I'm that confident to wear them , especially in my country :(

Style Porn said...

Haha, the over-the-knee duck boots are a little crazy--and I'm still trying to decide if its in a good way or a bad way. In general though, I'm also a huge fan of this trend. It makes the legs look fantastic!

Bostonista said...

yes! I'm definitely planning on investing on a pair. they're the one look that my definitely always works with my body.

I so wanted a pair last season. Time to make it happen for Fall!

Ife' said...

yay, yay, yay! I am so glad this trend is sticking around for another Fall season. I was pretty much obsessed last season. My boots are itching to come out and play. This season, I need to get some brown suede over-the-knee boots, too.
