Ok, I know this isn't the boot forum -- but I figured you'd indulge me once as this is what I got at Prada in SoHo with Jill last Sunday. Then yesterday, I found these lovely patent booties at Neimans (linea rosa line -- had NO idea they were making these) -- perfectly sized heel for me. I love them both -- the brown ones actually look pretty good with a knee length skirt -- rather that "in-dowdy" thing MiuMiu is showing this year tho not sure I'd do half way up the calf socks. May be pushing it ... I'm not 21 anymore !!
