Personal Shopper: What Goes With Clare's New Boots?

Clare wrote, "Hi! I was shopping around online, and had a moment of weakness and bought these boots. I. Love. Them. The problem being? I have nothing to wear them with to the office. I work in a business casual environment, and have no idea how to even start finding clothes that go well with those boots that are appropriate for work. To make it even more difficult, I'm curvy and prefer clothing that doesn't make me look like a beached whale. Please help!"

Those are awesome, Clare! Jealous! For you, we'd recommend a wrap dress that hits at or just above your knee in a fun color: it'll be flattering to your curves, and show off the boots without being hoochie. If you want them to look like regular shoes, pair 'em with wide-legged trousers and a slim top to balance the proportions. On casual days, skinny jeans made for curvy gals tucked into the boots, plus a drapey cardigan + embellished cami combo will be divine. Enjoy!

$30 for boots? That's not a moment of weakness, that's spotting an AWESOME opportunity.

No kidding! I might go buy 'em myself now!!! Thanks for the fashion inspiration, Clare!

Glad I could help!
I saw them and fell in LOVE.

I dont usually buy things without knowing I could wear them...but i saw them and I just had to have them immediately or I was going to die right there.

OH NO!!! Return those boots! Those are for sure not going to be as cute as you think they will. Turquoise faux snake skin? TRASHY...

I don't agree, Outblush, that you can, indeed, make these looking not hoochie.

agreed. those boots should be on Doubt-Blush

I have a feeling that Clare will rock these boots, so hate all you want, haterz.

They are a little out there...but hand to god they are GORGEOUS in real life.

I was terrified that they would be tacky, I was totally ready to return them. As soon as I had them on though...rawr!

Clare, my apologies!! I have been burned by Metro, so I was quick to judge. GLAD YOU LOVE THEM!!!!

I TOTALLY understand. Its very hit or miss with them. Even their comments are misleading!
"Buy these pants a size smaller, they stretch!"

When they don't, I wind up wearing them anyway and I wind up feeling like if I move wrong, I'm going to explode like a can of biscuits.

I took my first mortgage loans when I was 25 and it helped me very much. However, I need the bank loan also.
