I haven't attended a Boxing Day sale in a LONG time, but I had great success this year! The best sales were at The Bay in Coquitlam Centre. I found these fabulous Arturo Chiang riding boots that supposedly weren't on sale, but were heavily discounted upon checkout! The Bay has 50-70% off everything right now, so it's worth a visit! Always get a price check before purchasing anything though, as things are always more discounted than the tags show.
I have seen quite a few people wearing over the knee boots, but have never managed to find any that fit properly or looked good. I met one of my friends for an afternoon at the Art Gallery Cafe in Vancouver and she was wearing a beautiful black leather Mackage jacket and over the knee black motorcycle boots! She has always been a style inspiration for me and so I began my hunt for over the knee boots.
Who What Wear always sends great "how to" tips in their daily email newsletter and just featured a "how to wear over the knee riding boots" article which you can check out here. Mine are brown, so I paired them with browns, reds and white to make them stand out. They are super comfortable and great for tromping around in the Vancouver rain! Home to Toronto on Sunday!
