  1. Hello everyone! My name is Selina, I'm a 29-year-old woman, and I live in Southern Finland. I work in a software company as a full-time job. I love photographing and making music (although I'm not particularily good at it :D) In high school I began to discover myself and my fetishes. For some reason, I found that wearing impractical clothes turned (and still turn) me on quite a bit, and since then, the only footwear that I have worn (apart from exercising) has been high heels. Because I like their impracticality, I always have worn heels as high as possible, and without platform

  2. Here are 2 pictures I took at the beginning of my last trip. These are both Chelsea boots. One is 14 cm and suitable for all sorts of activities .The other one is 15 which I keep for even surfaces as hotels Both are very similar so the height difference isn’t obvious

  3. I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time since before the pandemic. Going to the dentist is always a bit of a challenge, because I have to figure out what to wear. First of all, I have to remember what I wore last time to be sure not to repeat it. Which is kind of hard to do when your wardrobe is kind of One Note Samba. One thing I knew for sure is that I didn't wear these particular shorts last time, because it was February, and I'm no Galina Kutereva (look her up sometime, if you haven't already). I have a similar, if not identical pair in pink, and I briefly considered going in ma

  4. The college friend, the violinist, fully supports my choices. She is a fashion junkie, and has at least a million outfits stuffed into her closets. Possibly approaching two million. If I ever wanted to do the JeffB thing, I would know who to go to for advice at putting together an outfit.She has said on multiple occasions, when I have showed her some of my shoes "Oh, I could NEVER wear those! I couldn't have worn those when I was young!" Which is true, she probably couldn't have. What I've never heard her say is, "Oh, I WISH I could wear those!" Most people don't have the high heel gene.

  5. My Father was a senior member of the U.S. diplomatic corps and I rarely found him not wearing a suit and tie which was sort of a uniform for the business he practiced. My Mother, on the other hand, was bound to the dressing traditions of diplomatic wives. Lots of afternoon, evening and formal state gatherings. She was well aware of my interest in wearing heels (another story that is well explained in postings now filed in this website’s archives) and usually answered most of my questions about types, styles, heel height, etc. Both my mother and my wife had almost identical standards on w

  12. Today's topic is JEANS. A year ago I was still wearing pants that hide my heels. They had a 32-34 inseam with a little flare. I had maybe 2 women's pants, and 2 men's stretch Levi's. In October while getting my skirt for my Halloween costume, I tried on a pair of short women's skinny shaping jeans. The fit was great.... Fast forward: Today I basically only wear skinny, skinny & shaping, or super skinny. (As well as faux leather pants - another story...) The inseam ranges from 26 inches to 30 inches. The 26 inch. 10-Short is great with knee high boots, they tuck right in an

  13. As promised elsewhere, I will turn to the subject of why I think women are not wearing heels anymore, and how it's been made worse by the pandemic. This is not an exhaustive scientific study, this is a few conversations I've had with two people, and is completely anecdotal, but this is my thread, so I get to engage in conjecture, at the possible risk of looking like an idiot sometime in the future. I used to hang out with a particular woman my freshman year in college. We lived in the same dorm, and we were both in various string ensembles together, so it was only natural that we became f

  16. Had one errand, pick up an order at JC Penney. Ended up doing a little browsing & ended up buying a couple of earrings that were on sale & a pair of feminine sunglasses, as my only intact pair are wrap around & don't work well with my outfits when out in the sun. After that a stop in at Outback for dinner. Pretty uneventful, even at Outback, where I got tons of compliments last week, but they were very busy today. Was treated respectfully at both locations. I wore a sheath dress by Stetson from Pinto Ranch & a jeans Jacket from Cavenders, I got both of them delivered today, al

  18. Working from home today when I was told not only was a wig I had ordered ready but a handbag was ready as well. I took the opportunity to dress up a bit as I wasn't too busy, so took a long lunch. 1st stop was the wig store where I had a nice chat with the owner & a couple of patrons. Got some nice tips. I love what she did to style this wig for me. It doesn't show, but the back is done in a french braid to my middle back with some strategically placed loose hair. Afterwards I went to the local mall to visit the Coach store & pick up my order. Its a small bag, cream colored with silver

  21. Had an appointment with my estate planner today, wasn't long, but I made the most of it. I was working from home today so I had time to dress up a bit. Got a classic double take from the receptionist! My attorney & all the witnesses & notary were good sports about it. I had a fun time, felt very comfortable the whole time. I am glad the public isn't so weirded out by things like this like it used to be years ago. Got many compliments on this outfit. It's a top & skirt I got from Ann Taylor. I thought my nude Nine West pumps were a good fit. Also considered my red strappy heels fro

  23. Crossed the Rubicon today, I suppose, as one of my wigs arrived. Still have some work to do, but having to wear a mask helps, lol. Plan to get my arms waxed next weekend. Not sure where I'm going with this, but my focus is still on heels. Went grocery shopping, & no one seemed to really care. Got two compliments on my nails, one from the butcher of all people. After that, went home, as I was still a bit nervous. Plan to take a nice nap this afternoon...Wore my Macy's mid heel print pumps, jeans from Long Tall Sally, & a top from Amazon...

  25. While I agree in very large part to your comments HinH, I do have to add that the public is somewhat responsible for the current situation. Back in the 1980's, we were flying to Orlando from Chicago and the airfare, round-trip, was typically in the $300-$400 range. Today, we get upset if the cost is more than $250 RT, and mostly pay less than $200. The public demanded that air travel be "cheaper and available to the masses". I'm hard pressed to think of much of anything that is cheaper now than it was in the 1980's. In the never ending quest to keep fares down, something had to give. Hen

  26. The foot steps crunching in the gravel reminded me... Years ago my wife and I were out visiting. It was late and we knew of a dead end farm road that went back along a river and decided to go back there before heading home for a bit of fun. We got there, laid out a blanket in the grass, (it was mowed, someone keeps the area in shape), and were just getting "warmed up" and unbuttoned then we heard this loud snarl, like from a mountain lion, and we do have them in the area. My wife leapt to her feet and was in the car in a fraction of a second, I am not sure her feet even touched the ground

  29. Jaunt #555, 9/13/2020: I so do enjoy my little Sunday morning outings to Springfield to run errands, and, in this instance, given the time of year, I have to watch the clock so I can get back home in time to watch the Eagles play as NFL football season is finally here. YAY! With the weather mostly sunny and sticky, I opted for a pink tank top, a 16 inch dark gray denim skirt from Old Navy, the Payless “Paisley” sandals in black, a black handbag and a black mask which I figured would provide a goodly amount of contrast with my top. By the way, guys: don't be afraid to wear pink, it's a bright a

  33. I'm not sure I'd call it bold. The store exists to sell merchandise and the staff is there to move that merchandise.Trying on whatever you see just ensures a good fit and avoids unnecessary returns. I've tried on dresses, skirts, tops, and scores of heels in states from California to Maryland and Canada and Mexico so trying on skinny jeans would be just a new thing. Clothes and shoe shopping should not be boring! I know how pocket sizes can vary. I do carry a handbag at times if the jean pockets are very small but it is a minority of the time. I think the height and style of your shoes must gi

  34. so that gal! i was very nervous about meeting up with her and had the butterflies like never before, but i pulled myself together, wiggled into my stretch fun jeans, black tank top and a different pair of heels, on the same heel and platform as the sexy Sherberts but diff vamp/ankle straps. that first time i noticed her staring at my shoes so i thought it would be fun to wear a different pair. and so the gal, she wanted to know what the story was/is: how did i come to wearing 6 inch heels? what is the history of the adventure, why 6 inch heels and not lower heels, and what does it do

  36. Hi all. So, a very interesting thing just happenned! My wife and I found this strip of outlet shops about an hour away from us, a week ago when we took our son to a school event. Various clothing shops, and - a shoe shop. We landed up spending an hour+ there browsing. they had a HUGE range, mainly of kids shoes, but also men and women (mostly flat - blah!)- quite well priced, but not crazy-cheap. But there was a section at the back with various heels, and interestingly, sizes that might just fit my wife and I - possibly! I couldn't convince my wife to get herself a pair, and she j

  41. It seems more and more feasible for us having big feet : ASOS, a nearly normal brand, now proposes heelded shoes for men (here the french website), with an appropriate selection filter AND round toe boots that are not Santiags, AND at a normal shoe price (< 100€) AND in my size. Ok only come in black, but heh it's a (planet alignment) start ?

  42. I find your observation interesting, but I realize that the sort of collective vision of this group is slightly skewed, because of generally having larger feet. These look completely normal to me for 5" heels, which is to say, I can't walk gracefully in them. For most guys on here who are, say, size 12, a 5" heel is no big deal. At the other end of the spectrum, for my friend who is size 5.5, a 5" heel would be unbelievably extreme.

  43. The bad news is, ever since we were sent home for Covid, I have had no where to go to wear some of my more delicate heels, like the Stuart Weitzmans. I pulled them out today and went for a walk just to check if I was still just as comfortable in them as when I wore them every day. The good news is, they felt great - I think spending all my time in 3.5" cowboy boots has been effective at ensuring that I won't totally "forget" the feeling of wearing 4+" heels.

  45. So, today, let's talk about heel wear. As you all know, I have ceased wearing stilettos on walks because the heels wear out too fast. I have made an exception with my latest purchase, the Shoedazzle "Alexa" rainbow colored mules, pictured elsewhere on this forum. They have 4 3/4" or 12 cm heels with no platform, making them among my steepest heels. While I was talking on the phone to a friend, I decided to take a walk in them, just to see if I could manage a mile in them. It was rather easier than I thought. So last night, I decided to give them my true two mile test, which has been my standar

  47. That's a shame. Eff it, life is finite and short. I love stilettos. I love how they feel, look, and style. I'm all in, and don't care. I'm rapidly running out of years, and each goes faster than the last.
