When in (Wardrobe) Doubt, Make Like Jackie O
Even though I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, Jackie regularly swoops in to assist whenever my inner sartorialist is in a bit of a shizzle. Just before the inevitable "I have NOTHING to wear" meltdown erupts, I breathe and remember to ask myself: WWJW? Well, Jackie would defintely wear these awesome equestrian "Rosemont" boots by Lacoste which Designer Studio Inc. generously sent my way.
The sartorial spirit of Mrs. O gave these these an immediate thumbs up & told me to tell you that an equestrian ensemble would show them off to best advantage. Here, I paired them with DKNY tuxedo skinnies, a short-sleeve blouse from MiH Jeans, a Margiela chartreuse cardi & matching Burberry scarf tied jauntily on a Bottega bag & finished the outfit off with Monica Vinader earrings.
The boots are a rich, go-with-everything dark brown, plus there is none of the weird gapping you sometimes get with tall boots thanks to the long elasticized panel on the back. Which is also great if your issue is just the opposite & you usually can't find boots roomy enough to accommodate your calves; this stretch panel is your new BFF. I do want to mention something important about the sizing: their American sizing doesn't correspond in the normal way to Euro sizing. I wear a 37.5 in Euro which is generally always a 7.5. In the Lacoste, it's considered a 6.5. So go by your Euro size when you go to order yourself a pair. Which you should really do. Like, now.
Or, you could enter my fun giveaway. I have a pair that will fit a US size 9. Tell me how you would rock them - leave your comment HERE on the Fashiontribes FB page - & I'll select the winner this Friday, April 5th. Good luck!
