Over The Knee Boots

September 22nd, 2009

I have had my eyes on these boots ever since they arrived at Barneys.  I didn’t want to buy them right away because I knew that I was going to NY and I thought that I might find something better there.  Over the knee boots were
all over the runway for Fall, but I didn’t see much of them in the stores yet when I visited NYC.  I fell in love with these boots because of their masculine feel that still has a sexy side. Because that is Nini’s style :-) . The heel is average so I can wear these shoes everyday and most importantly the boots are within my budget.

I can see myself  wearing them casually with jeans and a heavy cashmere sweater or dressing them up with a mini dress and adding my transparent Dolce Jacket to complete the look. People are always asking me how I afford my wardrobe and the answer is smart shopping and fashionista planning. When I find a good deal, I stick with it! I  love things that are versatile so I can wear them all the time and get my money’s worth! Wouldn’t you ?

Have a wonderful day everyone!
xoxo Nini Nguyen.

    Woooow so Between Sexy Arrogance AND “Feminissime” Delicacy I really like the way these “day to day SM CHIC-issimes Fetish fineries” shape the arch of your feet, AND the way it sensuously/”sulfurously” unveil a part of your thighs . . .
    ps: OR an Other evidance That “Total Dark Style” is Obviously made for you Nini !!!
    I wish you an excellent day Dear.

    wow! I love the whole silhouette so much! This Junya dress reminds me 1 of his black asymmetrical cape in this season, I think it works on you and you can carry it very well. Oh yea very interesting contrast between you and the backdrop by the way :)

  3. September 22nd, 2009 at 15:30 | #3

    So fab, Nini!! I adore adore adore them.

  4. September 22nd, 2009 at 15:37 | #4

    Your boots are amazing, they may be my favorites that I’ve seen so far! Such great details on them!


  5. September 22nd, 2009 at 16:00 | #5

    i love how that article referred to you and hanh as “japanese editors” LOL!!! you both are fierce and fabulous enough to be! great necklace and i really like the dress too!

    im so nuts about the thigh high suede boots. im considering buying myself a black suede pair, but it is a totally fantasy life purchase. hehe i guess a gal is allowed a few of those pieces that she will never wear but wants to have anyway!!

    Incredible photos Nini!!

    You looks so gorgeous as usual & the details on the boots are really what make them stand out.

    Take care!

    hi nini!
    wow, gorgeous boots!
    i saw those boots from jane too.
    you indeed pulled it of so well.
    you look very sophisticated and classy.
    i gotta shop for high boots soon!

  9. September 22nd, 2009 at 17:27 | #9

    Seriously sexy.

  10. September 22nd, 2009 at 17:35 | #10

    LOVE the JW dress & Fallon necklace Nini!!! I have a gorgeous pair of OTK boots by Costume National, which I sadly no longer can zip over my fat calves, boo hoo! You look hot in yours though 😉

  11. September 22nd, 2009 at 18:31 | #11

    Great Outfit, Love the boots, check out my site


  12. September 22nd, 2009 at 18:38 | #12

    Those boots look so hot on you, Nini! You paired them well with the Junya dress. Great styling!

  13. September 22nd, 2009 at 19:18 | #13

    Damn, Nini…you completely astound me again. I agree that these boots have a slightly masculine vibe, but I think that’s what’s so great about them. Over-the-knee boots have too long been associated with strippers and ‘ladies of the night’, it is pairs that are not too ‘sleek’ that really tend to work well. Love the outfit that you worked it with too, very tough chic and yet sexy at the same time!

    P.S. thank you so much for linking me on your blog, I have to say it’s truly an honour to be placed on that little ‘daily reads’ spot on the right column. Knowing that what I write is relevant to someone who always inspires me stylistically is a damn good feeling.

  14. September 22nd, 2009 at 20:33 | #14

    Hi Nini!

    Once again you impressed everyone here in the blogosphere, as usual! Lovely boots! Looks perfect on you and what nice poses you have here! Love the entire outfit! =)

    I love love love the boots. They look great on you.
    Loc takes awesome pics as always.
    I wish I could have a job at Barney’s. So, I could got discount there. LoL…That would be big saving for me.I try to manage myself not spending too too much on fashion stuff, but it’s not easy sometimes.
    ps: always love the way you pose.

  18. September 22nd, 2009 at 22:42 | #18

    Hello Nini, I have been following you for a while now and I really love how you mix and match outfits! You rock girl!!

  19. September 22nd, 2009 at 23:39 | #19

    I love your outfit! Those Co-op boots are so cool. That necklace with the black is great! :)

  20. September 22nd, 2009 at 23:40 | #20

    WOW! Great over-the-knee boots! Been thinking about getting a pair. And you are seriously inspiring in them!

  21. September 23rd, 2009 at 02:46 | #21

    I fell in love with those boots every since they first arrived at Barney’s and so did all the sales asssociates. I hesistated too wanting to see the other options..but I’ve yet to find any that compare. They look fab and seeing that Jane and Judy has them also, I’m sure they’ll be one of the boots of the season. Moving the total look., however.

  22. September 23rd, 2009 at 02:51 | #22

    I bought a pair of over-the-knee boots last week, totally love it!

  23. September 23rd, 2009 at 05:44 | #23

    Hi Nini!!!

    These have to be called killer boots!
    They seem to be the new “it boots” this fall as I remember (hopefully not wrong 😉
    seing them on Jane´s blog.

    You look so high-glamour with these whimsicial statement necklace!
    And to vote for my #1 picture: No 3 in black white 😉

  24. September 23rd, 2009 at 05:44 | #24

    I love your pick and also adore Zanotti ones. It’s a very tempting trend I must admit. I love it how they look like very glamorous over the knee socks :) and make so many different outfits look modern.

    P.S. That dress is gorgeous!

  25. September 23rd, 2009 at 06:32 | #25

    Nini, the boots look amazing on you. I think you picked the perfect pair for yourself. You look stunning in these pictures.


  26. September 23rd, 2009 at 07:22 | #26

    Those boots look amazing on you. I need to get myself a pair for fall since they so hot this year. I saw a pairs of Lanvin over the knee boots yesterday at Barneys but it was like $2,500.

  41. September 23rd, 2009 at 15:10 | #41

    OMGGGGGGGGGG! I am so happy and surprised when I see my blog appears at the same list with The Sartorialist, JAK & JIL! Thanks for your appreciation so much, it is really sweeeeeet. I will keep working hard on my snapshots and the contents to prove that you didn’t put a wrong name in your “daily reads” list 😀

    Have a nice day!

  44. September 24th, 2009 at 05:47 | #44

    Wow Nini those are some amazing boots and I love the subtle drapes on your dress! I always keep your tips in mind when shopping, now I try to be more of a rational shopper (I think of how many times I can wear it/ how many items in my closet will compliment it) than an impulse buyer.. but it’s fun to shop on impulse sometimes hehe..=)

  45. September 24th, 2009 at 08:18 | #45

    Hey there! I’m a first time visitor to your blog and LOVE LOVE LOVE your style…esp in this amazing post! I was looking for new fashion blogs to visit and had heard about yours; I’m so glad I checked it out!

    The boots plus the dress and the statement Fallon necklace look amazing on you!

  47. September 24th, 2009 at 09:46 | #47

    hi nini!!! :) these OTH boots are insane! i saw them in jane and judy’s blog too and they are definitely drool-worthy! and the price is not too bad considering there is a lot of leather. and the junya dress fits looks great on you too!

    can’t wait for the new header!! :)

  48. September 24th, 2009 at 11:00 | #48

    darling Nini you rock the boots, I am loving the over knee boots trend, love this pair and it looks great with the dress honey. hope you had an amazing time in NY for fashion week.
    big kiss!

    Hi Nini,

    You rock this boots so well with the Junya dress!! LOVE the photos, can’t wait for your new banner..

  50. September 24th, 2009 at 13:31 | #50

    Wow, what a major shoes, I have a pair of over knee boots since last season, suede black, I don’t think I will get more of those as where I live you could walk all winter in uncle boots rather than over knee ones:) Anyway, I hope I made it clear Nini: your shoes are amazing!!!:)

  51. September 24th, 2009 at 14:19 | #51

    amazing boots!!!
    i didnt see that many in NY either.

  52. September 24th, 2009 at 17:04 | #52

    As soon as I read Barney’s, I was thinking…did she get the same boots that I want?! And lo and behold…yes! They’re gorgeous. I’m 90% sure I want them. I just need to try them on! :)

  53. September 25th, 2009 at 01:32 | #53

    Love the shots & love the boots, but on YOU. You’re right, they’re so your style! And so not mine : )

    That’s one of the things I love so much about your blog, Nini, and about you: you know your style. I was wondering, too, how you can wear such expensive pieces but I can see you’re so practical and focused in how you approach fashion.

    I did have a pair of thigh high black boots, for years.. I think about them often. They are no longer with me, alas. They were made of a kind of stretchy suede synthetic, and, unlike your lovely leather ones which I know you will care for and will live forever, they are sadly not of this world any longer. I don’t know if I’ll ever find another pair to replace them, they were so me: kind of slouchy, they’d often fall down & I’d have to pull them up like baggy stockings. Sorry to go on so long (maybe I’ll reach the 5000 mark in sheer VOLUME) but I do miss them! Perhaps they’ll come back reincarnated: It worked for our cat!

    Can I offer a tip to anyone who hasn’t yet found THEIR perfect pair?

    many thanks for your sweet comments!! xoxo

  54. September 25th, 2009 at 09:08 | #54

    Hi Nini! I left you an award on my blog. You just inspired me to get some OTB spats 😉 Not the full boot yet… but I’ll get there. I left you an award on my blog. You’re awesome! xx D

  55. September 25th, 2009 at 09:09 | #55

    OK I just realized that I said “left you an award on my blog” twice in my comment. Obviously I need more sleep 😉 Hope you enjoy the weekend!

  56. September 26th, 2009 at 07:48 | #56

    Nini, stunning as always! I just adore overknee boots, your pair are really great with the buckles for a rock chic edge. I have a classic Chanel pair that are really fitted, but I like how yours are looser too, it is certainly getting cold enought to wear them now x

  57. September 26th, 2009 at 12:07 | #57

    Rockstar Nini, those boots are A-M-A-Z-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-N-G!!


    Darling, how are you? I hope all is well! The Barney’s boots have been made for you!
    I’ve seen them once a Sea of shoes – I really love Jane & Judy – but you’re rocking them even more!
    I’ve just learned – over the knee is not always over the knee – over the knee could also be thigh high (god gracious, the language barrier… 😉 )

    In these boots you’re looking like a superhero – Super-Nini! 😀

    Sending you a big hug and a biiiiiiig kiss!!
    Wishing you and Loc a wonderful weekend – please say Hello from me!
    xoxo sofie

  58. September 26th, 2009 at 16:41 | #58

    Jane Alderige also got those booots, and I just adore them on you both!

  82. October 5th, 2009 at 20:48 | #82

    Over the knee boots are THE biggest trend for this fall season. NiNi you were able to get a great pair with some interesting details. Also it doesn’t look trashy at all.. Even though the shirt/dress is short and you can see the top. I may have to take the plunge this season.


  83. October 10th, 2009 at 11:48 | #83

    those boots made me go GA GA ! SO COOOLL !
