Retail Therapy: Lorenzo’s Picks for Ankle Boots

Posted on November 15, 2016


Darlings, Lorenzo has the fever. With the world being … what it is at the moment, he has succumbed once again to his shopping addiction and is lining up stylish and (mostly) affordable items for you to consider left and right. Tom, for his part, sits back and smiles the smile of the manipulative spouse, knowing that he has successfully maneuvered his husband’s obsession into something a lot less draining on their bank account and much better for the world overall. We’re doing it for you, kittens. And so Lorenzo doesn’t buy any more clothes for himself, lest our closets burst.

Anyway, the man loves personal shopping, as we’ve mentioned many times before, and at this point, it only took him 47 minutes to come up with the following options once Tom barked “Ankle boots! Go!” at him.

Yes, we used a stopwatch. This is our life. Shut up. We’re not weird. You’re weird.

Anway, let’s go shake some booties, ladies! First up, the classic HIGH-HEELED BOOTY:

From Debbie Harry to the Kardashians, it’s been a mainstay of fashion for well over 30 years. It’s one of those rare women’s shoes that manages to be sexy, cute, and a little kickass all at the same time. Lorenzo’s favorites: The Michael Kors leopard, the green suede Rosegal, the gray suede MK, and – don’t hate us – the Victorian-style black laceups from Kendall + Kylie.

Next, the more fashionable (at the mo) CHUNKY, STACKED or WEDGE-HEELED BOOTY:

Stilettos will always be hot, but this style of ankle boot is more fabulous and on trend at the moment. It’s a Bowie/Prince thang. The trend is to wear a lot of these styles with skirts, but you really can’t ever go wrong pairing them with jeans, leggings or pants. Lo’s Loves: The Nanette Lepore, the Preen, the red MK laceups and the red leather MKs with the strap at the ankle, the Karen Scott, which is ADORABLE,  and the gray Calvin Klein.


And finally, the favorite of many rocker chicks, earth mothers, and boho gals, the rising trend of the FLAT or LOW-HEELED BOOTY:

A pair of leggings or skinny jeans plus a chunky, oversized sweater and a low-heeled booty makes a fabulously cazh-dressy day look. Lo’s feeling: the blue suede Marc Fisher, the green suede Portland Boot Co., the black and white Doc Martens, and the Michael Kors motorcycle boot. Kickass and fab.

So, darlings? See anything to your liking? Feel like getting your booty call on? Don’t forget to check out all of Lorenzo’s picks, to get the full range of his manic shopping obsession.
