How to wear a white shirt dress with faux leather black thigh high over the knee stiletto boots


So I purchased a white shirtdress from Fashionnova recently. The exact product name: Gone Away Poplin Shirt Dress $21.99

I chose it for a pretend photo shoot yesterday and styled it with a pair of boots that I purchased from for $20. The boots were on sale. The original price was $99, but it’s one of those cases where, to me, I don’t see where the boots are worthy of a $99 price tag.

I did learn an important lesson from purchasing these boots. When something that has a $99 price tag is on sale for $20, there’s a reason and it’s usually that it’s not in the best ever condition. The boots were a hot mess in that the top part just kept flopping over. And these are not boots that you can still wear even if they are slouching or flopping over because the inside material is not meant to be seen. So, as I was forced to do with the other very similar pair of Azalea Wang boots featured in the post “Before you buy those black over the knee stretchy vegan leather thigh high boots“, I had to sew on some straps to create a fastening device so I could keep the boots from flopping over.


So I styled the Fashionnova white shirt dress with these black thigh high over the knee boots. I added a broad black faux leather belt which would have looked better had the shirt dress not been designed with the band in the back.

To complete the look I added some gold-look costume necklaces. And I painted my nails because it’s hard to always be trying to hide my fingers so no one will notice I didn’t paint my nails. I don’t generally wear near polish because I can never keep the polish on. I always scrape it off with my teeth in a nervous habit. Not to mention I always manage to mess it up before it dries because I can never keep my hands still long enough.

So, this is my take on how to wear a white shirt dress with black thigh high boots.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
