got leather

Mens’ hoodie & faux fur vest: H&M. Leggings: American Apparel. Boots: Topshop. Bag: Thrift DIY studded. Dress worn as a top: East village boutique
At LONG LAST. The thigh highs came. They are Topshop’s Britany boots in black leather.
The platform makes the heel height really wearable. I had them on all day at work (yes I can wear these at work. It’s a casual dress code) and they were fine. I give them a 8/10. I deduct marks for them not being high up enough on my legs (and they slouch down) plus I’d love if the heel were thicker. Overall though, they are definite keepers. I must try them over jeans asap.
I finally got a longer version to my cropped faux vest bought last winter and posted about here (a few posts down). I wanted something that was more coat-like. Love the optional self tie belt so you can wear it loose and open.

    I recently bought some over the knee boots, that’s didn’t quite make it over my knees (I have long legs), so now I’m in search for thigh high boots. I’ll have to look into Topshop.

    those shoes are to die for!
    i’m drooling over how amazing they look in that first picture.

    and this vest looks just like the long black F21 vest that i was talking about! mine even has the same belt and everything.

    i might have to buy that vest now.
    i wasn’t sure about it but this post is convincing me!
    love those boots too…they’re really good.

  7. Dylana says:

    I love the vest so much! Amazing look, like always!

  8. Amber says:

    omg you found your unicorn!!! HOTTTT!

  9. Posh says:

    Yeah, finally! They are amazing, love them! Love the shape of the shoe and the heel, perfect and so comfi! <3

    Recieved the Britany overknee boots yesterday, and OMG: I ADORE them! <3

    May I ask how tall you are, because the thigh high boots look more overknee (maybe I want to order them too).. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Honestly, I’m not so crazy about the black Faux vest, but you look great w/ those boots though. I thought stilletos that high are too hard to walk but you’re so used to those I bet. I prefer the thicker or wedges, too. I love all your other outfits, keep them coming.

  11. Posh says:

    And I ordered that faux fur vest too only it was too big and now I’m waiting for sale! =p

    This look is great. I like the way you mixed casual with sophisticated. The vest and the hooded underneath work really good together.

    you look SO GOOD in those over the knee boots! like im feeling envious of how amazing you look.

  14. Melloney says:

    I love everything about this,
    It’s perfect.


  15. Suzanne says:

    stunning boots, especially in combination with the faux fur!

  16. Dominika says:

    amazing outfit!
    totally love it <3

  17. Posh says:

    Yeah, I think they are perfect! They look amazing on you, gorgeous! <3

    Hmm, the converter (feet to cm) doesn’t really do his work but I’m think I’m a bit taller then you. I’m 176 cm. and got long legs too! I think I’m gonna buy the Aggie booties then, are they a bit comfortable? These last ones are higher than the Britany and I had the Topshop Amelie boots and these were so damn uncomfortable, had to sell them.. =(

    Mine are made of Nubuck, I love the ‘leather’ ones too only these are just 100% synthetic and the Nubuck ones are real leather! So the decision was very clear for me.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    aaa! ive been looking for a pair like this, exactly like this since…hmmm… for the last 3 years, yup.

  21. Pinja says:

    Vest is wonderfull! I really love u style girl! :))

  22. Vanessa says:

    So this has to be my favorite look of yours. I love the boots and I have been dying to get in a faux fur vest, but where I live it can be too much for the everyday eye. You just showed me how to rock it casually. And I love how you got it from H&M!!!! I have been drooling over a gray faux fur vest by Michael Kors that I saw in November Elle Fashion Spread. Anyways, absolutely lovely!

  23. Yssis says:

    the boots look great on you! they are awesome

  24. Antonia says:

    This is a great look-I love that you did all of these pics in black and white-these look more like a photo shoot for a magazine spread. Love the thigh highs and faux fur vest, they go so well together! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Karen says:

    Vanessa – I know!! no need to pay $$$$ when faux fur is all over the place really.

    Posh – THe Britnay 2 from what I’ve read, is the shorter one. The Britnay that I got is the slightly taller one. Its definitely comfortable. I wouldn’t mine being even higher on the leg because of the long leg thing but I’m cool with it for now. Heck I could always have a cobbler add more leather to the top if I reeeeeally wanted?

    Caylee – I saw a pic online of the one you have!!! pics please???!!!!

    Amber – yes I found the damn Unicorn. FINALLY ; )

    Thank you everyone for your comments : ))

    LOVE this look and the b&w photos really capture the textures of the different fabrics nicely. The boots are amazing! I have been considering buying those myself for awhile, but Topshop seems to only offer half sizes. May I ask how the sizing fit for you? Thanks

  28. cat says:

    ridiculously hot boots, seriously like crazy hot, and you def have the legs for them

  29. Karen says:

    Anon – get your size. e.g i’m 10 so ordered the 10.5 so if you are an 8 get the 8.5 etc. they fit fine like that.

    Cat – hey you need a pair!!

    Thanks everyone again for your comments : ))
