Never in my life did I think I'd want a pair of thigh-high boots so badly. But earlier in the summer I spotted these ShoeMint boots at a press preview and I knew I had to have them.
My reasoning is that unlike many thigh-high boots, these have a stacked heel and '70s-style paneling, just like the suede ankle booties I knock around in all spring and summer long. They feel casual, yet fancy enough for an event, and cool enough to pair over black jeans or with a tunic dress à la Jane Birkin.
So finally, after months of stalking the ShoeMint site, these bad boys are on sale and I can't wait to buy them. Maybe fall isn't that bad after all ... it does mean new shoes.
