If you’ve paid a shred of attention to these outfit posts over the years you’d know that bare legs are as much part of my style as retro-inspired dresses. In fact, I’ve earned a reputation for making my friends and colleagues second hand frozen from my lack of legwear as the temperatures drop.
The best solution for all involved? Some truly glorious thigh high boots.
What I Wore:
Sienna snake stiletto pointed over the knee boots
Megan McKenna button-embellished longline blazer dress in Wine
It was a “give me comfort or give me death” kind of day come Day Four of London Fashion Week. Though I was one missed espresso away from heading to Somerset House in a onesie, a few super-bright pieces saved my style.
What I Wore:
Green faux fur coat, Antoni & Alison (AW12). Red beret, handmade (similar here). Neon orange jumper, Superdry. Red dress, vintage (similar here). Thigh-high boots, Boohoo. iPad case, Lodis (similar here).
Oh, how I love you, thigh high boots (among other shoes). The rainbow-coloured Fall/Winter 2011 collection from Alberta Ferretti show kicked my Milan melodramatics into gear. With a combination of some of the season’s most stimulating hues, barely-there hemlines, and interesting metallic brocade prints, Ferretti’s prerogative was to design something for (stylish) everyone.

Francesco Scognamiglio (say it three times fast) is the go-to man for exclusive star style. His designs – especially from Fall/Winter 2011 – are dramatic, and inspired by the feasible relationship of romance and sin. Where cleavage was on show, it was prescriptive. Where grandiose fox hems were placed, there was a connection with the discreet. Where 5-inch, thigh-high boots swelled with Swarovski crystals, leg was visible through the most micro of minis. It was a performance I could watch again and again: truly phenomenal. See the top five looks below! View Post
