Although I do feel the need to start out by saying that if your intention is to vote for Obama - go vote!
I vote in DC (although as soon as we got married I should've switched my vote to VA where it actually matters) so I'll be heading up there mid-day and hoping for not-terrible lines.
So back to the issue at hand.
This past weekend I went to Zappos to buy running shoes - very practical running shoes.
And in the process, I got distracted. By a link that said "thigh high boots."
Nobody needs thigh-high boots. Or anyway, nobody who doesn't take her clothes off for money.
Which I don't.
They were an impulse purchase, and a spendy one at that. But free shipping! both ways enticed me. I could try them on and return them without losing anything on the shipping.
They arrived last night - fast fast!
I kind of love them. They come a couple inches above the knee in front. So they're more above-the-knee than thigh-high.
And while they're very high, they're not tarty. Although I do wear that pair of tarty boots I got last year way more than ever expected. Your encouragement emboldened me, and I love them. I even wear them to the office with a conservative but fitted skirt suit, or a pencil skirt and sweater.
So these boots, they're more biker-y tough than tarty. In my sheltered little urban world of what I consider biker, I mean. Because if I ever had to be one, I'd be like, I don't know, the Strawberry Shortcake of bikers or something.
I would so get my ass kicked.
The real question is, can I actually pull off boots like this? And what kind of outfit would look good with them?
