Over the Knee Boots - Are you in or are you out?

Unless you've been exiled to Siberia I'm sure you know that over the knee boots are THE hot item for fall. I love them and wish beyond all that is holy I could actually wear them. However as a 5'2" woman who carries the majority of her height in her torso that, my dear readers, will never happen. But lucky for you I can blog about them and here are my top two picks.


Nine West - Husky

This is a gorgeous boot and the flat styling will ensure you won't be making a Pretty Woman of yourself. The back features grommets and a tassel tie detail and the pretty taupe hue will help make these your go to boot of the season.


Zip Over the Knee Boots - Stuart Weitzman


Ugh. Man. Now these... these I love. That Stuart Weitzman is such a frigging genius. This is one of the few heeled pairs that I think doesn't look like it belongs on Hollywood Boulevard. This is helped by the smoky slate color and stacked 3.5 inch heel. The stacked heel is key. I love, love, love the zipper going up the length of the shaft. Oh to be tall and leggy ... le sigh...

Oh and in case you couldn't tell when it comes to this trend I am definitely in. Which way are you leaning?

I like the trend but can't understand how anyone can wear them in real life...except at Halloween. They're too much. I won't be sporting them, knee-height is just fine with me, no need to go higher. Love the Weitzmans!!!

Love both boots.. great picks!! Unfortunately, it doesn't get really that cold here in FL to wear this kind of boots (sigh)

I love the look, but I'm unsure how it would look on me and how practical they would be for my job.

I am so in but I like you am on the shorter end of the spectrum. I like the Idea though. The second pair is definitely a winner in my book!

I'm 5'3" and by the time I would put those over-the-knee boots on my legs, you wouldn't see any of my leg!
