SHOESday: Back to Black (again)

After all the purpla excitement last week, today I'm back to black.

These are my first pair of knee high boots. I bought them in Dublin - I think it must have been at least 3 years ago now, possibly even 4 years ago! I remember planning on buying boots on that trip, but the London shops were disappointing - I think it was about April and so boot season really was over. But I found these in Dublin and wonder of wonders, I could get them zipped all the way up!
I love how the zip is on the outside, and the way it meanders up the leg - as it so often is, it's the little things that make the difference. I also like that the heel is not ridiculously high.

(I also have a little confession to make - I've been putting off posting these boots as I didn't think I'd still be able to do them up...but I can! Huzzah!)

Oh! So stylish! They are actually very sexy boots, I think. Pointy and tall and elegant.

I am jealous of all the traveling you do! I haven't been keeping close track or anything, but so far you've shown shoes bought in Singapore, NY, and Dublin, yes? And also, you and I have a very different definition of "high heel!" :-) I'd end up on my face if I tried to walk in those. You must look absolutely fabulous!!!
