{muse of the moment} Givenchy fold over leather boots

During my non-working hours, much of my time has been taken up perusing the pages of the Victoria’s Secret Swim 2013 catalog {where I have already marked The Sash Overlay Bikini as a warm-weather essential}; scoping out potential sandal contenders {I’m thinking the metallic alice + olivia Denny would look amazing against tanned legs}; and scooping up necessary nail shades {hello pretty L’Oreal pastels}. The one thing standing in my way is…Givenchy.

Long before you knew me as Café Fashionista, I was a boot fanatic. An adoration that has seemingly grown by the second as I’ve spotted Carrie Bradshaw strut down the streets of New York in knee-high snakeskin boots and a fur coat {enviable topknot bobbing along with each step}; supermodels take the Isabel Marant runway in slouchy fringed boots coupled with microscopic minis and body-hugging skinnies; and now, the always-chic Christine Centenera {Senior Fashion Editor for Vogue Australia} donning the very Givenchy boots in question during the illustrious Fashion Week.

With these on my covet-radar since fall 2012, I finally purchased the more-budget-appropriate-but-still-incredible Stuart Weitzman Spats Boots in December as a combination birthday/Christmas/graduation gift to myself to quell my Givenchy desire; rather, the purchase has had the opposite effect. As those of you who follow me on Instagram have likely figured out; I love the Spats version so much, that the lure of the Givenchy's has only grown. But at an almost-but-not-quite $2,000.00 pricetag...unlikely seems the word. Still, a girl can swoon.

<3 <3 those boots are also my object of desire and that's how it's gonna be since there's absolutely no way I could ever afford them. But, like you said, a girl can dream :)

Love them!! They look so cute!! But I am afraid that I´d need to be a "little" taller :(

Rachel @ The Redhead Fashionista said...

OBSESSED! These boots look amazing.

london's beauty said...

They look lovely. I love boots a lot too. I have only 5 pairs because the ones I love in the shops are always ridiculously expensive.

Couture Carrie said...

Eleanor @ Sequins & Sass said...

I LOVE these boots, but ever since my stylist described these boots as something... inappropriate and less than flattering (!), I haven't been able to look at them the same. :(

Happy Friday!

xx, Eleanor

Dancing Branflake said...

Your legs would look fabulous in these!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

OH MY goodness. Those are amazing, Erika!!! I want them!

Kathryn said...

I was never a fan of these boots when I'd see them by themselves, but styled like they are here I've fallen in love! So gorgeous.

Tights Lover said...

Definitely a boot fanatic, myself. These are just absolutely breathtaking, though. I love them!

Ewelina said...

Those are so nice!

Sherin said...

Oh to Be a Muse said...

My word! I've never seen these boots before. They are very interesting.

Sara Gerard said...

I knew you were a boot fanatic! lol. I love these and I really think you could rock them! :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

This is quite the interesting boot. I like the clasp at the top. However a boot like this would not look good on my hour glass body. It would only emphasize my thighs! With your trim figure, they would be smashing

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I like layers too much to really enjoy the summertime. LOL I can't find as much cute things that flatter me. Bummer these boots are too expensive!

J said...

Those fold over boots are awesome! I want a pair!!

Josie said...

DROOL. Those are gorgeous!

elle [wonderfelle world] said...

Gahh they are so beautiful - I'd almost be too afraid to wear them anywhere! Let me know if you end up getting the other look-alike ones - I think they're different enough from your Stuart Weitzman ones to justify!

Islandia Lane said...

ah, I adore!

Krystal said...

i keep seeing these pop up, they are cute!

3x Moda said...
