Before I get into how I found the perfect thigh high boots, I’d just like to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I am currently sitting here with a glass of mulled wine (the only red wine I like) and typing this out for you all. Christmas is probably my favourite time of year, simply because of, the family atmosphere, the friends, the decorations and most importantly, the food. (Just kidding, family over everything, lol)
When Christmas is approaching, as happy and excited as I am I also tend to get a little sad for the homeless. I hate to think that they have no home to go to on a very special day, so I try to give more around this season. (Not that they don’t need things all through the year, you know, Jesus is the reason for the season, so he inspires me to give more than I would at any other time of the year)
Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely day with your loved ones and I hope you are resting and reading my blog on this lovely Boxing Day. (Hehe!) Did you get involved in the sales? Let me know if you snagged some major bargains. I unfortunately didn’t really see much that I liked on sale, but I still bought one or two things as per. Lol! I really want to do a New Years Eve look book for my YouTube channel, as a way to get back into creating great videos for you all. Honestly, I can’t wait to schedule my entire life for 2017, I know I definitely need to be more organised in order to excel at the things that matter to me. Anyway, I will talk more about future plans in my ‘Year In Review’ post coming in a few days. So before I digress way too much, let me get down to the business of these thigh highs. I stumbled on these boots whilst scrolling through the Zara website, (as I do frequently) and as soon as I saw how high they went up her legs I HAD to have them.
Of course, they were out of stock. See, when you’re a tall girl like myself, finding thigh high boots that actually reach your thigh is nearly impossible. I’ll see boots that claim to be ‘thigh high’ and after receiving my order, them they will be ‘just above the knee’. Common, stop with the false advertising guys, or at least give us the proportions of the people that these boots would actually be ‘thigh high’ on. You’re probably thinking. ‘Why didn’t you just go into some stores?’. I have in the past, but I never found any besides good old Stuart Weitzman, which were above my budget. Anyway, one night after work my friend Nitya and I went traipsing round the Regent Street area, but our efforts were in vain as they didn’t have my size and the one store that had it,le’s just say the boots had been tried on five too many times. Having accepted defeat (well I thought I had) I went home. A couple days later, I head to Westfield Stratford City to take a look at the new Missguided store and as I’m leaving, I say to myself, ‘Why not check Zara out’. The rest Ribbons, is history. Aren’t they gorgeous?
