Over the knee boots are the hottest Fall shoe trend. There are so many wonderful pairs out there, but here’s a easy way to transform your favorite pair of booties into a fab pair of boots. Who doesn’t love a little wardrobe versatility?
Essentially what we’re making is a fancy pair of leg warmers. I know… leg warmers!!!! Purchase a yard of faux leather or faux suede. Do your best to match the fabric of the boots you’re trying to transform. Then, cut your fabric into two piece. The width should be the distance around your calf PLUS one inch (the extra inch will become your seam. 17 inches in my case) and the length should be the distance from your heel to over your knee (21 inches in my case). Add a healthy amount of glue to your one inch seam allowance and fold the other side over to meet it. Allow some time to dry and add a free hand stitch to secure.
My FAVORITE Fall booties. Seriously, I’m wearing a hole in them. And of course I’m about to get even more mileage out of them now that I can convert them to over the knee boots!

It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve brought out the glitter which can mean only one thing… it’s GLITTER BOMB time!!!!
Boot season is in full swing so you can imagine my excitement when a pair from one of my favorite online shoe site, Sole Society showed up at my door!!! Last season I took my pair of Sole Society booties and went all electric pink a la Nicki Minaj (click here to see). This season I thought it was necessary to give my Lyssa boots a full glitz make over just in time for the Holidays.
