to otb or not to otb?

Dear readers, I am treading dangerous waters ... I thought I would be immune from desiring over-the-knee boots because I'm usually more practical with shoe buys, but these gorgeous Dolce Vita "Eve" OTBs are seriously testing my resolve ...

It's that beautiful buttery looking leather on the left that is whispering sweet nothings in my ear, although if I go for it I'll probably end up buying the black ones. I've been daydreaming of prancing around in minidresses, opaque tights and OTBs for the next few months, and these are the perfect mix of sexy and sleek. I love that it's flat and completely unadorned, just all nice lines and good leather. OTBs run the risk of giving one a "working girl look" but these are far from that. They cost $295 at Bloomingdale's, which is not a bad price to pay. I know that the trend will not last, but so far my boots have always had a lifespan of 2 years because of all the walking we do in Manhattan, so if these boots are out in a year or two, it's not tragic.

Am I trying to convince you guys or myself? Hmm.

Would you OTB?

Definitely go for it - but get the brown ones. They just look so much more luxurious.

OTB!!! DO IT!
If they run out of style at least you get to wear them now where people wont look at you like you were a weirdo!
