  1. Friday was a typical half-day & I decided to wear my booties that resemble wingtips, except of course for the 4" heel that is. That was it for heeling on Friday other that a quick stop by the post office. Saturday was a some what busy one. I started with an appointment at the nail salon. The work stations are too low for me to wear heels, so I wore some flats instead. After swapping out my flats for my black patent Sam Edelman pumps I had a stop by an office to renew my carry permit. I got a compliment on my nails when she took my finger prints. Then it was time to catch a movie at the loc

  3. I'm quite attached to what I like to think of as my first pair of 'proper' boots - ones that I really secretly always wanted to have.

  5. I'm concern with the difference between platform and heel. I NEED at least 3.5 inches and can easily wear up to a 4.75 inches difference. I think my platform heels are easier on my feet compared to thin single sole heels.

  6. They are American Eagle flats I bought from Payless years ago. They were the 1st pair of womens shoes I ever bought that actually fit me well. All my other shoes over the years I ended up getting rid of, but not these. I wear them around the house instead of slippers. Would love to get a new pair but AE doesn't make this style anymore that I can find...

  7. I've learned to tuck my legs back and lower the chair slightly for my manicures. Besides, the other regulars want to see what I have on. You just can't disappoint them.

  8. I'm sure that was it! There IS power in high heels, after all! I would like to submit a couple more selfies of some stuff I've bought while my wife has been gone. I got this mint green sweater by Leith. Don't know who "Leith" is, but that's what it says on the tag. Again, the purpose of buying this was to experiment with wearing leggings as pants. I bought this sweater on Poshmark, and I think it was brand new, there were still tags and stickers on it. It is labeled "small," but it's not terribly small, feels more like a medium. Oddly enough, I got another sweater labeled "small" that I b

  9. Here's my latest purchase. Aldo, size 11. I've worn these shopping for new glasses (where I got a "I like your boots" comment) to the class I teach at the university, to restaurants and just about everywhere. I think, despite their pattern, that they are not terribly unusual looking. They remind me of snake skin cowboy boots.

  10. When I notice someone sees my heels I try to initiate a friendly greeting as soon as possible. That seems to take the edge off any awkwardness they may feel about me wearing heels. It works for me most of the time...

  11. I recall a girl in 6th grade (1963 or so) wearing a pair of bright blue patent pumps with a kitten (two inches or so) heels to school once or twice a week. Those were the first heels on a classmate. When we graduated from 8th grade in 1965, the teacher told the girls to wear no more than mid heels, which at the time were basically 2.5 inches, and everyone should wear white shoes as well. One girl that came from a large family who didn't have the cash to go buy her a pair of new shoes wore a pair of her mother's pumps that were probably 3.5 inches, so she stood out from the crowd - in a good

  12. Hi all got these super tall and sexy pumps now for some time(maybe 2 years). And I thought to myself I have to have the same in black - so I logged into the website of the producer... and I ordered them and they willl pop up in the next days in my postbox. (the heels has 16cm of nice heel hight and are very comfy to walk despite the hight and the sole is not slippery at all.

  13. With the shoe standing up-right, measure the perpendicular height of the heel starting at the point the heel joins or meets the upper section of the shoe's back as it stands on the floor. (Depending what high heels you have to measure, the common height could be between a range from about 4 inches to around 6 inches.) Then measure the thickest height of the platform from the floor up. Subtract this platform measurement from the measured height of the heel and this gives you the effective height you would feel while wearing them. Note though: Whatever the platform thickness measures, that creat
