"we just died and went to perfect outfit heaven"

I know it's kind of nuts, but the first time I saw this outfit, I kind of died. I loooove it. I love the stripes, the high waisted belted shorts, the trench, the dash of plaid, and the CRAZY thigh-high boots (still want a pair... i know, you prob hate them).

Speaking of BOOTS, did I mention that I scored my Frye Paige riding boots on ebay for $100 less than the retail price? HOLLLAAA!! I also got the chance to actually try them on at the massive Macy's in San Francisco, and oh. my. god. they. FIT! I have freakishly massive calves, to the point where my ex-boyfriend (who loved me dearly and thought i was beautiful) made the mistake of rubbing my legs and then asking, "Why do Korean girls have such MASSIVE calves?" Uh huh. No worries, we've been over for a LONG time!

Anyhoo, I've (sort of) come to peace with my calves, but nonetheless I am THRILLED that these boots fit! They are gorgeous and perfect and I will wear them forever and forever amen. (P.S. They are also a Rachel Zoe pick on Piperlime! Coincidence? I think not.)

I like the boots you linked to. Oh so chic! Every French girl had these on when I was in Paris.

That is a great saving. Enjoy your boots... sounds like you are giddy with excitment.

OMG... I was literally typing a post about this problem right now. I don't know if it's the Korean in us, because there are so many teeny tiny Korean women with slender calves, or if I should blame track and swim team when I was younger. Either way it sucks to not find boots that fit! I am currently on the hunt for some riding boots. I might have to check yours out...

Love ya!

Ummm...you DO NOT have massive calves. Let's just clarify that one up right now. : ) Not even close to being outside the normal range.
