OTK: Sounds like a boy band, should be a boy band

Ally: I won’t lie to you. Upon first sight, I thought this trend was bullshit. Putting a postive spin on the look Julia Roberts made so tramptastic in Pretty Woman.


After witnessing this trend in person, I admit that I was wrong. I know, I should have told you to sit down for that one. It’s so rare. So precious a moment. Yes, I was wrong.

I do love over-the-knee boots. I do.


Originally I wondered how one could possible pull this look off. I wonder no more.

Lisa Drader-Murphy. Fashion designer. Real-life person. Wearing over-the-knee boots and not looking like an idiot. In fact, looking quite glam and fantastical. I’m sold.

So, where can you get such boots I ponder to myself (as I do quite frequently since I am self-employed). Aldo has some lovelies:

I believe these OTK’s run for around $180.

Thoughts? Do any of our readers have such footwear? L-A, are you stabbing yourself in the eye?

L-A: I’m sorry, what did you say? I was too busy stabbing myself in the eye.

I will admit that Lisa makes those boots look good. Really good. I saw her wearing them in real life and thought they were great. But just because I like Lisa’s boots, does not mean I like this trend. It just means that I am slightly less likely to make the following noise when boot shopping with Ally: *cough*hookerwithaheartofgold*cough* (actually, I’d probably still say that and I’d say it without the coughs).

I’ll let you have this trend though. If only to stop you from making fun of me when I buy a pair of these bad boys:

they will be mine. oh yes. they will be mine.


I just spotted Sorel’s at John David Shoes the other day. This could mean trouble. And by trouble, I mean new boots for me. (actually, there is a buy one, get on 50% off sale…maybe we should talk about some spending some quality boot shopping time together).
