Fabulous post, BB!

Love the over-the-knee look, though I'm tall and they're more like to-the-knee. Haha!

Anyway, I thought I'd share - I bought & love love love these boots from DSW (in grey):

I was dying for a pair of OTK boots last year and finally found a Steve Madden pair on sale at DSW in a rich dark brown. I love them, but they slide down really easily because they're ruched. Any advice on keeping them as OTK and not just riding boots?

PS. My legs fit the boots pretty well, so it's not simply a matter of sewing the boot in, this much I do know. I'm really at a loss about how to make them stay up though! Please help!

I bought the Elle boots a few weeks ago and I love them! Not only are they really comfortable, but they go with just about everything in my closet :-)
Also, I love that I can where them over the knee or scrunch them down for a totally different look7

I bought the Ann Taylor boots and they are NOT for girls with thin calves. My calves are curvy (15.5") and these fall down on me. I bought them because I like the scrunched look, and because these are the only boots I've found that can fit over jeans, but if you're looking for actual OTK boots, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

BTW, they're cheaper in store (~ $60).

I agree about Loft boots. My calves are small and when I tried them on they would not stay up. They looked weird. But great boots otherwise!!

Any ideas on where to get some similar to Rachel's? I'd love some tan, high heeled, platform OTK boots!

Are Rachel Zoe's boots high heels or flats? Ideas on jacket? Where to buy?
