Tracee Ellis Ross, 50, treats her Instagram page like a Vogue magazine spread, showing off high fashion and haute couture at every turn. So, we were fully paying attention when the Black-ish alum confessed she'd found the one clothing item she wishes she could wear forever: over-the-knee boots.

In a new Instagram post, the comedian modeled an eye-popping Bottega Veneta 'fit, putting the focus on her shoes in the caption. “NY MEETING ATTIRE BOTTEGA STYLE,” Ross wrote in her caption. “I think I’d like to only wear over the knee boots from now on.”

The photos were snapped by Camilla Mecagni on the streets of NYC. To construct the look, Ross worked with her frequent stylist Karla Welch, as well as the Bottega Veneta creative director Matthieu Blazy.

Ross's 'fit included a patterned blazer with strips of purple, black and white, layered over a white tank. For the bottom half of her ensemble, the Girlfriends actress wore light wash jeans, tucked underneath a pair of tall, textured white boots. (FYI: These boots can be purchased for $9,500 at Saks.)

Ross is certainly a fan of statement-making shoes. For the Webby Awards earlier this week, the 50-year-old sported a different pair of over-the-knee boots, in a black, ruched style. Meanwhile, back in January, Ross rocked hot rod red boots, which were covered up by her dress (but she made sure to give followers a peek on her Instagram, as seen below).

If you're looking to copy Ross's style, you can get white boots that are a little cheaper than the Veneta pair. For instance, check out these Marc Fisher boots at DSW ($65) or these Stuart Weitzman shoes at Neiman Marcus ($1,200).

You're always our style inspiration, Tracee.
