Hey Fatshionistas! I am in the market for a pair of boots. I'm short (5'3") with short legs. I cannot decide what height of boots to get: knee-high or mid-calf? I fear that knee-high boots will make my legs look shorter, especially as I plan on wearing these boots with skirts most of the time. I figure that the taller the boot, the shorter the skirt needs to be for proportion... and since I am short, there's just not a lot of room to go up. I will be layering the boots with legwarmers, tall socks, and tights.
Although I do want to look cute and show off my legs, I also have relatively heavy thighs, which I don't want to emphasize.
Here are the two styles I'm wavering between:
Knee-high Madden Girl Malbec boot: http://zapp.me/7583888
Mia Lillian Engineer Boot: http://tinyurl.com/yz8pnr6
The second boot is actually discontinued, so getting it in my size will be expensive, but on the other hand I think it is super-cute.
