I just got my new Vogue magazine for October and the boots! The Marc Jacobs boots are just great. Something I was indeed surprised to see make a comeback was combat boots with dresses. I remember this from the 80's. I used to wear that look back in college. Can I get away with it now? Maybe on a saturday. I love that look. I remember when my brother and sister in law got married....my sister in laws sister wore combat boots with her bridesmade dress. We were all mortified! There she was in an evening dress and green army combat boots.
Gisselle was wearing engineer combat boots by Marc Jacobs with cocktail dresses. It looked cute. The brown pair above can be found here. The closest thing I have now are hiking boots. Can I wear hiking boots with casual dresses for the same effect? We will see.
What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
