Lady of the Night

I've been a fan of over-the-knee boots for a long time now. Even if they had never been "in-style" until more recent years, I had a vintage pair that wore perfectly with everything. They could be sexy, for sure, but they were also very practical for someone who frequently wears dresses and skirts, but is generally too lazy and warm to wear stockings. I came across these shoes by accident when someone on a messageboard I frequent posted another pair by this brand, Jeffrey Campbell. I checked out the website where the shoes could be found ( and fell in love with these gorgeous boots. After some brief deliberation, aided in part by a coupon code, I ordered these and they arrived in a few days time. They aren't quite the mummy spectacular that is a similar pair by Rodarte, but these quell my need for a pair of thigh high boots that actually come well up in the thigh region, and don't slide down.

Sizing is true to US standard sizing. These are a US 7, and they fit pretty good. The shaft of the boot is SNUG. These boots are not made for anyone with bigger calves and thighs. The thigh area has a bit more give since it is open in the back, but they would still be a hard fit for someone with curvier legs (my calf circumference is under 13" and I could barely zip these up). Great find for the price in general.
