I know, I know the weather JUST warmed up, and the last thing you want to hear about is Fall trends, but tis the season for fall previews and I just had to share with you what is destined to be Fall's absolute hottest trend. Is the suspense killing you? OK, I'll let you know but you have to promise to keep an open mind.
This fall everyone (and by everyone I mean celebrities) everywhere (and by everywhere I mean on the red carpet) are going to be rocking over the knee boots. Over the knee boots? OK, remember you promised not to judge.
I know what you are thinking. Over the knee boots? Yum, have you really lost your mind? When I heard this, I too first pictured Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman standing on the street corner wearing those awful pleather "hooker boots" (no offense to those working girls) but you know the boots I'm talking about. A guy's dream and a girl's nightmare. Case in point.
Love it or hate it, in just a few short months we are going to be seeing this trend everywhere. They've been all over the runways this season and all the major department stores are already featuring them on their homepages as a "must have" for fall. Luckily for us girls who are living in 2009, these boots would NEVER be seen on a street corner. I shudder at the thought.
The creme de la creme are these boots from Chloe'. Not only are they knee high, these babies would be thigh high on anyone who is shorter than 6 feet tall. Their price is just as sky high running about $1,300 dollars. Gorgeous? Yes. Practical? No. Fierce? Yes. Wearable? No.
I just couldn't justify the Chloe' boots, and believe me I tried, so instead I searched far and wide for my perfect match. After an hour of some serious internet shopping I found my perfect OTK boot. My sole mate I'll call it. These babies were almost a third of the price of the Chloe' boots and they are MUCH more practical. I can see wearing these with skinny jeans, leggings, dresses, and with knit tights. In short, with everything I own. I love them and cannot wait until the end of September when they will be arriving on my doorstep. These boots are probably the only thing I'm looking forward to in the Fall (oh, how I hate cold weather.)

These babies and I are going to have a long and happy life together....and I'm pretty sure I won't be mistaken as a "woman of the night" in them which is a good thing considering I always have the little man in tow. Just in case I guess I should make sure the little guy has some bail money tucked away in his diaper....
