these boots are made for walking




Georgie, being a catwalk model in Russell & Bromley boots. Top by.. you won't believe this, but I do believe it's Topshop!

There's been a lot of debate lately between being a bootie girl, or over-the-knee. Can't we be both?

I'm an over-the-knee girl myself - and I'm fully smitten with this pair. Love the way they were toned down by being paired with a flirty floral frock - I think I may need to try this combination out myself!

I just want to say thank you so much for putting that link to my piece about CitiSoles in your sidebar - you are truly one of the sweetest people I've ever met (virtually, of course)! :)

I say be both! These are great shots. And I agree with Cafe Fashionista -- you are one of the sweetest people on the blogosphere.

And I also have to agree with the girls above, you are one of the sweetest people in blog land, and you really helped me out being so welcoming when I first started blogging, you're a star Jill Dot x

Here I am (again...I think I'm in love with this blog.ahah) and sure, I will send you some shoots taken in Florence (my e mail is luna.francesca@yahoo.it) Oh, boots.... here in italy every woman wears jeans inside boots....every woman... everyday....everywere... I love boots, but I think there are million ways to wear them,with a dress, with leggings or with an oversize cardigan, but please: take off your jeans from your boots!!...sooo boring, believe me. lovexxx

gorgeous, gorgeous pics- LOVE the mini dress (top?) and OTK boots. sexy and carefree at the same time.

as for the question- oh, J, i am a boot girl in any shape or form...over the knee, calf height, scrunchy, ankle boots, whatever...call it a slight obsession, if you must. i think it started somewhere around age 2. there's a photo of me wearing my dad's boots, or rather, they're wearing me!

If my boots would ever come in, I'd be both! Who would have known that there would be a postal strike in your neck of the woods? I wait...

Even the pretty ones Sh*t said...

In the words of Rachel Zoe - I DIE! I love this look and is a frequent weekend look here in the states. And I think you can be both ankle boot and over the knee boot girl. But I think it takes a really sexy attitude to pull off the over the knee look.

This is definitely a good use of over-the-knee boots. The dress is so lovely! I am a big fan of girly, floral dresses. They are so innocent and feminine. Pretty pictures Jill.

Blown away by your kind words, every one of you!

J: we knew there would be hardships with the postal strike, but to be forced to wait for your boots to arrive... that's inhumane!!

And Miss Odyssey: that phrase - your boots 'wearing you' - I've noticed that expression several times in the past 24 hours, so that's another meme that's flying round the blog world right now. I love the way it's so quick & almost coincidental: like everyone waking up and feeling like wearing purple.

Was having a bit of a down day yesterday - nothing related to Anonymous, just some family stuff - and your comments coming in when they did, each of you, it totally made my day!! x

Those boots are fabulous on her! I tried on similar and looked a little like a pirate. Maybe my size is too small. the little floral dress works great with the heavy boots.
