It took me like a storm in December. I suddenly needed a pair of over the knee boots.
Weird, because it goes against all my fashion habits.
I hate tights, and over the knee boots are mostly worn with them.
I rarely wear skirts in the winter and, again, over the knee boots = skirts most of the time.
I was never super into the jeans and over the knees combo. It has a David Bowie in Labyrinth vibe that I can’t shake off.
But I suddenly needed some, no idea why.
I wanted them flat, to be able to walk around in like sneakers. And also because high heeled over the knees are another story… can be a bit trashy?
Which is probably what made me think about them, The idea that an over the knee boot can be super sophisticated, yet comfortable AND warm. I looked for them everywhere. In the beginning I wanted a real thigh-high boot, but it’s almost impossible to find a flat one. I also wanted a completely flat one but I adapted. Mine have a small heel, a little 70s. I’m okay with it.
I found them at Barney’s and I wear them all the time. It made me love wearing skirts in the winter again!
And about that David Bowie in the movie Labyrinth… well, he was cute, wasn’t he?
