Boots Vs. Dress Week - Blue Mood or Blood Red?

Onto our next match-up! Today's outfit features my other sweater dress, and my blood red patent boots, which are recently resurrected from the "I don't know if these are appropriate for work" pile and are now part of the "Of course I can wear these to work" collection.
I layered my grey striped shirt underneath this dress (strangely, I have never done this before! Oh, the doors blogging opens!), added a pair of L's cufflinks.
I had colour issues with my camera, so have played with the colour balance until the blue and red came out right. I'm not really that pink in the face, though.

These are my new tights that I got last week:
They are by Emilio Cavallini - wow, they have some cool tights.

The stuff:
My boots now need to be re-heeled. After wearing them to work on Hallowe'en, I got stuck on the bus coming home due to protesters trying to disrupt the Olympic torch relay. After sitting on the bus for 1/2 and hour, the passengers were allowed to get off the bus...but the protesters were still blocking the route, so I had to walk home in these. Eeeeee...most grumpy-making.

A close-up of the cufflinks and my vintage 50s necklace:
Well, what's it going to be?
The dress or the boots?
The dress!
The boots!
I'm not particularly bothered about either of them
I like the Olympics.
