If you take a look at my last post, you'll see that I wore a pair of over-the-knee boots as a part of the look I styled. I got a lot of great feedback from you all on the outfit, especially on the boots I was wearing. This inspired me to do a post for all of you!
It has been some time since I did a Currently Coveting post. Due to the feedback previously mentioned, that it is finally boot wearing weather, and the fact that my roommate asked what pair she should buy for herself, I am dedicating this post to over-the-knee boots!
I have liked OTK boots for as long as I can remember! However, like probably turned into love the first time I laid eyes on the Stuart Weitzman Highland Boots. As soon as I saw them, I realized I had never wanted a pair of shoes so badly. I had to have them!! Well, as life would have it, the love I had for the shoes quickly turned to lust once I saw the price tag associated with them.
I was on a mission from that point on to find an OTK boot that came close to the Highland boot, but at a price point that I could afford. I am not sure if OTK boots were not as popular a few years back when I set out on this mission, but I actually had a pretty hard time finding a pair that I liked. Please let it be known, though, that I am very picky when it comes to things like this. The main thing that I was concerned about was the fit of the boot on my leg. I found that many of the lesser priced duplicates were too big/loose on my legs, thus giving them a cheap look to match the cheaper price.
After searching for a couple months for the perfect pair, I ended up finally settling on a boot by Ivanka Trump. You can see me wearing them on an older picture featured above! They met all of my criteria, with the most important being the fit. I wore them all of the time, and still do!
Now, I don't want you to think I had buyer's remorse, as I was very happy with the decision I made, but a big part of me still wanted the Highland boots. So, I decided to save up my money and invest in a pair. After saving for several months, I finally had the funds to make such a big purchase. My hand was literally shaking as I handed over my credit card, but after a quick swipe and signature, they were mine!
Now that you all know the backstory to my obsession with OTK boots, and what I went through to find the perfect pair, let's get to what you are all really here for. I selected some of what I think are the best purchases you can make. While I must say that you cannot beat good quality, there is something to be said about an amazing deal as well. One thing I definitely noticed when searching for all of these boots, is that there is so much more available at different price points now than there was when I did my search a few years back. Now, it seems you can get quality and a great deal! Or, you can go ahead and splurge!
