I don’t spend a lot of time lusting after fashions I can’t afford; it’s counter-productive. But ever since I peeped the Donata over-the-knee boot at the Ugg Australia showroom, I can’t get them out of my head.

At $1,095, the Donata is sadly way out of my budget, but I will continue to lust after them from afar.
