I have been lusting over a pair of thigh high boots for a while now. The pair I got last year was a lot shorter (just went over the knee) and it rarely stayed up so just became a scrunchy style instead. However, I was not going to spend the money for a high heeled pair since I will rarely get to wear them. Therefore, against my own rules I bought a cheap pair from Charlotte Russe for $40 (plus they had 'buy a second pair for $10' sale). At least they are not faux leather which I really can't stand. Faux suede is much more bearable as it is a soft microfiber type material. And they are platform so the heel does not feel as high as it looks. Of course they look killer under a mini skirt which is what I was going to wear but felt it was too much for going out without my husband so opted for jeans. Later realized should have worn the skirt as I was the only person in pants. The inspiration for the combo came from a 'ann taylor loft' ad where the girl wears black top, jakcet over dark grey jeans and black boots. I added 'rocker chic' acessories with the necklace, bracelet and ring. Used my new purple lizard clutch which was part of a b-day gift from my best friend. Oh, must comment on the nail polish which I love. It is a black with a deep purple hue from N.Y.C. Added a silvery colorful glitter gloss on top.
