The Monday Piece - Over The Knee Boots

This week's Monday Piece is on over the knee boots! They come around every autumn and the shops are usually filled with their take on the trend, but it can be tricky finding the right pair that aren't toooo 'much', and that fit just right. I'd spied a few pairs online but didn't want to commit to a purchase until i'd tried them on in real life for fit and look, so Nick and i popped into town for a little shopping during the bank holiday weekend where i could try some styles on! The chunky soled version with the platform and track sole are everywhere - ASOS, River Island, H&M, Office...the list goes on - they aren't for me as they're a bit clunky and they're usually fake suede which i don't like the look of. I wanted a sleek classy pair (nothing smutty), real suede, with a pointed toe and tight fit, i can't stand it when they look 'baggy' and you see gals in town constantly pulling them up and fiddling with them, so i was looking for a sassy classy pair that fit right over the knee but not high up my thigh, with a heel.
My requirements are usually pretty high when looking for a shoe i want to invest in, so i wasn't going to 'settle' for any old pair, but found this pair from Dune in House of Fraser. They are fab and feel so great on, they're a suede slim fit and the back panel of the boot is stretchy which is ideal so they don't sag or fall down, the heel isn't too high but is a stiletto, and they have a pointed toe - the sizing is completely off though, i'm between a 3-4 in all shoes, but had to take a 5 in these which is nuts! So if you are buying this particular size online then do size up! I'm petite at 5 foot 3 so this pair is great for my short legs as they're well over the knee, i loveee them, it's definitely worth investing in a decent pair so i'm pleased i've made the commitment. I've worn them with skinny jeans, an asymmetric jumper and my trusty leather - so very pleased it's now leather weather again!
