Ankle boots + skirts...
I've read in some fashion magazines and such that the combo ankle boots + skirts doesn't work. But I've also seen it done in a very cool way, very rock-chic. I'm thinking Shirley Manson, Liberty Ross...
What do you think about this? Does it work?
I really don't have any pics... Please post some pictures so I can get some inspiration...Thank you!

well, first one must have nice legs to do that look. the rest is debatable.

Yes, nice legs in the first place... And I was referring to black pointed toe ankle boots. I don't know if it would work with round toe ankle boots.

I found this pictures, I liked the look... I don't know if Sienna Miller ones can be considered ankle boots though.

i personally adore the combination! obviously on someone with very nice legs, preferably on the short side: i think if you're too tall the whole ballerina effect gets lost.

i like it with both pointy and round-toe ankle boots, i guess it depends on the skirt you want to put it with: i'd go for round-toes if the skirt is short and bulging (i hope you're getting what i mean...), for ponty ones if the skirt is straight (or in denim).

really?...mod?......
i was going for neo goth...
but that is sort of what i figured...
the way i see neo goth is just different to what other people think about it...
but the pink boots with the bow is what it's all about for me...


thanks for the lovely compliments ...
glad you all approve...
