I like the longer flowy dress and tall boot outfit Angie wrote about today, although it's likely to be a very occasional outfit for me because of my typical style and the winter weather in Portland (cold, damp, snowy). Also, I would need to buy tall boots, and I have no real budget to speak of right now. So I'm just play-shopping. I do have two dresses that would fit the bill (see below).

Still, I did love the look of the Boden boots in the first picture in the blog post and I wonder if they might be an answer for me this season because they are quite inexpensive. They are "stretch" boots, which seems to be code for synthetic material. With the discount, they are $120. What are your thoughts about these (in either berry or navy)? They come with a higher heel and pointy toe, and a lower heel and round toe. I suppose I am wondering if it might make sense to purchase a less expensive "fun" boot rather than invest, since I haven't worn tall boots in several years and am a bootie devotee.
