I had a giant fiasco with a pair of CL booties last fall.. But we won't speak of that. Two weeks ago, I finally gave up the search of looking for knee high/below the knee boots -- I'm 5'0" tall and it's really hard to find boots that: A) fit my calves (used to be a dancer so I have high and muscular calves) B) don't fit me awkwardly (i.e. above my knee when it's supposed to be below) and C) don't make me look shorter than I already am. So after stalking these boots for a while online, I finally caved in and went to Neiman's to try them on. Of course they have my size on display. And I caved. Now presenting my three day breaking in (+modeling) process Day One: I went simple for the first day. Rag and Bone for SCOOP NYC color block jeans, Helmut Lang sweater + tank, McQueen scarf Day Two: I wanted to go edgy. Y-3 drape cardigan, H&M tee dress, Helmut Lang leggings, and Ferragamo waist belt. Day Three: I live in Boston and I've been dying to do the skirt/dress + knee high + vest combo. H&M long sleeve tee dress, fur vest and H&M knee high socks. Any other Cate owners? I love mine! My only complaint so far is that it's slouching by my ankles any one have any advice to fix that?
