Ask BB: Tall Platform Stiletto Boots on a Budget

I am looking for a pair of black knee high leather boots that are firm leather and won't slouch around the ankle or crease around the leg when I walk. The celebrity styles I'm going for are Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. ... [I] would be able to purchase a pair of boots for under 150 dollars. Is there any way that you could help me find a firm leather boot for that price? I would like something under 4 inches in height if possible. —Christina

Ashley's boots are most likely Christian Louboutin, and retail anywhere from $1,200-$1,500 (exact price unknown). I found a similar looking pair in genuine leather by Jessica Simpson for $198 online - you might be able to find a similar style for less at DSW, TJ Maxx or Marshall's. This was the closest match I could find, it's the right height, no slouch, slight platform, almost toe and stiletto heel. Since this is such a sexy shoe, pair it with something cool and covered on top as Ashley has done. Click the image to shop.
