(just realised yesterday's post was my 400th! 400 for a 40th! Love it!)
The problem with starting to wear brown, when you've pretty much always worn black, is that black boots just don't cut it with brown clothes. Gosh darn it, that meant I had to buy more boots. How terrible!
I bought these on sale a couple of years ago - not long after I read about a shoe repair service in the city that can expand knee high boots - oooh, the opening up of the options for knee high boots for those with shapely calves! Since these were reasonably priced, leather, and had a straight inside leg zip, they make the perfect candidate for alteration.
Not all shoe repair places can do it, they need a special machiney thing (oh yes with the technical terms) but if you desperately desire knee high boots, but have the shapely legs, knee high boots are within your reach (without having to resort to Duo Boots, which are a fabulous, although somewhat expensive, option).
The adjustment is not invisible, but if done well can look like an additional gusset, and they do mean you have the glory of skipping down the street in your flirty skirt and knee high boots! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
