I’m loving the versatility of this dress to function as its intended form but also as a topper piece like I styled in this look. I opted to forgo the belt to give it a more casual feel. Pairing the olive green color with closet staples like black and white stripes and rich brown boots make it the perfect fall outfit.

Review: Stuart Weitzman Lowland vs Merona Gisela over the knee boots

review comment

Review: Stuart Weitzmand vs Merona over-the-knee boots | see the full review at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Since posting about the Stuart Weitzman Lowland over-the-knee boots and other great finds at various price points, I received some e-mails about how some of the alternatives compare to the Stuart Weitzman boots.

I own the budget friendly version from Merona (“Gisela“) as well as the Lowlands themselves. At first look, it’s hard to tell apart the two boots. The Gisela is shorter in leg length, has a slightly pointier toe box, and the only other distinguishing feature is the zipper at the foot for ease of getting in and out of the boot. The Lowlands are made from real leather compared to the Gisela which is from man-made materials. Despite this, the Gisela doesn’t feel flimsy or look cheap.

Sole of Merona OTK boot

 

The Gisela boot has a shaft height of 19.5″, calf circumference 14″, and a heel height of 1.25″. It comes in two colors: black and grey. For comparison, the Lowland has a shaft height of 24″, calf circumference 13″, a heel height of 0.75″, and is available in 7 color options (eight, if you count the all leather version).

The Gisela is definitely inspired by the Stuart Weitzman Lowland OTK boots and is a great lower price point alternative. Though it is only available in 2 colors, the colors allow you to wear it with just about anything! But, if you’re looking for a real suede boot, I truly love my Lowlands (consider it a holiday gift to yourself!).
