Ex on the Beach star, Melissa Reeves, had a bit of an embarrassing moment during her birthday on Saturday. The blonde tripped in her thigh-high boots and accidentally exposed a rather awkward view of her, er, crotch (for lack of a better word). I guess you could say it was quite a memorable birthday for her.

For the occasion, Melissa made sure all eyes were on her by wearing a sheer oversized blouse teamed with black panties. She capped off the combo with black thigh-high open-toe lace-up boots.

I can’t say I was a fan of the getup (or lace thereof), but her boots had potential. I mean, there’s no doubt that she would have looked classier had she worn, say, a simple black long-sleeved mini dress with the pair. Check out Melissa’s outfit, then tell me if you agree:

So do you agree that a simple black longsleeved mini dress would have made her look a whole lot classier?

I couldn’t find any details on Melissa’s statement boots, but they appear to be very similar to the ones spotted on Kylie Jenner and BEP singer, Fergie, several months back.

Kylie’s and Fergie’s thigh-high boots are from Gianvito Rossi. The style is no longer available online, but a shorter version can be had via MyTheresa. Check out the “Jane” lace-up booties. They feature an interesting silhouette characterized by asymmetric shafts. They also come with the same open-toe design, lace-up closures through the center, and 4-inch-tall heels:

If you’re among the bold few who would love to sport open-toe lace-up boots like Melissa’s, but don’t want to spend too much moolah on something you will only wear a few times, then try these faux suede knockoffs from Dollhouse. They’ll only cost you $69.
