Miles High

Photobucket

I have always wanted a pair of thigh high boots and my need for them grew even more when Topshop started selling them last year. I tried them on and decided against them after someone commented in the store saying that I would look like a prostitute wearing them and would attract the wrong attention. I left the store feeling thoroughly deflated and squashed that idea right there and then. However I still wanted them and found myself always visiting the online store just to look at them and to check that they were still available.
Last week I finally thought what the hell to that girls comment and bought a pair from Ebay. These are infact the most gorge boots ever and I can't believe I won them for a mere £22. Clearly it was fate and even my Dad didn't shake his head in shame when I left the house wearing them. Ha! Next on my list are these and these - roll on pay day.
