  1. I was browsing through some of the local online buy and sells and I came across these. The seller said they were only worn once or twice each. The brand is Charlotte Russe. They are essentially the same shoes. One in a black sparkle and the other is a silver sparkle. They both look amazing! And what really puts these over the top is the bubblegum pink bottoms on each one. You don't see that too often! The heels measure 4 3/4" on each. And the lack of a platform gives each pair that classic stiletto look. As much as I love the black ones I think I like the silver ones even more! They

  2. I bought these today. Naturalizer Soul Noela. Paid $48 at DSW. The size 11 medium I bought fits pretty well, though still a hair on the narrow side for my wider than typical foot. The heel in size 11 is 3 1/2 inches which is a good height for my rather bad feet. Wore them grocery shopping and they were good, but hopefully will break in a bit on the width.

  5. These lovely pumps arrived yesterday. They are right at 5" and for me absolutely perfect. The heels are not straight down which is so a relief. I'm seeing more and more properly located and shaped heels these days. I wore these for about 8 hrs yesterday and they are extremely comfortable. They are a 42, and listed as 10.5 on Amazon, so definitely run true to size. I bought two more from this company as a result of my love of these pumps.

  7. Today was my third time out in public in heels and I wore my 3.5 inch "kin John Lewis" mules, skin tight jeans and black jacket. I went shopping at Primark in Oxford street primarily. Repainted my toes before setting off, and Initially I wore my black ballet flats with a golden bow to a local supermarket, then changed into heels once I got on the bus to central London. Within a minute off hitting the streets I could feel the difference of walking outside but my final bus stop was a few hundred metres from the store, so not a big deal once I was indoors. The fear and nerves qui

  8. Thanks for the kind words! Jaunt #559, 10/3/2020: Two items of business before I talk about the day’s outing.... Item 1: As is my biannual practice around early October, on Friday, I swapped out my spring/summer attire in favor of my fall/winter clothing. It was rather chilly that day, so I figured it was time for the change, still, I was more than a little disappointed since I didn’t get to enjoy a full warm weather season because of the virus and the lockdown, hopefully things will be different in 2021. Item 2: Speaking of disappointment, while masks are important these days b

  12. Well, howdy there high heeled people! Well, and then Jeff. Howdy Jeff. The weather here lately has been unseasonably warm, so I have been able to wear some things I thought I had put away for the season. First thing yesterday, which was Sunday morning, for whatever reason, I decided to wear some low heels. Not Jeff low, but they're kind of low for me. I walked 2 1/2 miles in them, at a pretty good clip, and I don't mind telling you that I was pretty pooped out by the time I made it back home. I'm not in the shape I used to be in. I have walked further, and in higher heels recently, but not at

  13. Sounds like a great plan! If you are shopping for skirts, I find it's much easier doing so whilst wearing one. Like whilst in heels, the worry of wearing a skirt just goes away, just sit carefully on the train if opposite someone on the Underground. If you do bump into someone you know, don't worry. So now they know. Most people have got too much going on in their lives to care for other people's clothes :) A longer straight skirt like the one pictured is good for cooler days, it's wet and wild the next few days. Denims go unnoticed too. Zara do some nice ones. A decent outfit goes well

  14. The weather has turned colder over the past weekend, and it has done so in the peculiar way of the Midwest U.S., where I started off the morning in shorts, and ended the day in clothes with far more coverage. I took my Sunday morning constitutional in these Nine West wedges, which are a bit of a departure for me. For one thing, they're sub-4 inch (though not by much), and for another, they actually have an ankle strap. No way! So that got me to thinking, I ought to do a bit of a shoe inventory, just to see how many mules I really have. It turns out I currently have 76 pairs of high heels

  18. Jaunt #563, 10/17/2020: Well, it looks like fall has fully arrived. After a rainy and yucky Friday, temps nosedived on Saturday, when I left the house at 10 a.m., it was only 47 and it felt just as nippy, so I prepared for the conditions by sporting a black wool peacoat over a gray drawstring dress from Old Navy, 100 denier black tights, the Payless “Martinez” black ankle boots, a black handbag and a matching mask. Despite the chilly temps, I felt quite comfortable in the short dress, well, short for me at six foot two, the coat provided plenty of warmth, as did the thick tights, meanwhile, I

  19. Haha, the coolers. Those were drying out from the previous day's farmer's market. My wife sells egg rolls, so no, nothing in there to drink! Methinks you are winding me up a little bit! I'm used to it. For one thing, if I were going to do that look, I'd have to find some boots that actually fit my chicken legs. __________________ As promised, here is the third picture from Sunday. It's an outfit I wore to record two weeks' worth of hymns with our church organist for the continuing online services. I was going to wear an entirely pink outfit, but decided that as this is a publ

  21. I just won this auction on ebay. I recently discovered Zara boots, and can't wait to get these....Classic styling, but with a rugged and powerful heel that will stand up a little better than my stiletto boots. I usually wear 11s, these are 10s, but 10s are often OK with thin socks. Can't wait until next week! https://www.ebay.com/itm/383307093383

  23. Finally starting to explore the city a bit more since the March lockdowns took effect. While I've been out a few times for dinner, today marked the first time I actually went out for 2 days back to back. We rode a moped from Long Island City Queens to DUMBO, Brooklyn...then back to Long Island City. In between, we explored some abandoned subway cars in an abandoned rail yard in Long Island City. Wearing heels with a passenger wasn't worth the safety risk. But I did wear my women's patent flats for which she complimented me. She obliged my request to bring her patent stiletto pum

  24. What a difference two weeks have made! The temperature dropped precipitously about ten days ago, and it has stubbornly stayed there. It has also been extremely windy most of the past week, and it has either rained or even snowed on the majority of the days. As a result, I haven't done any walking lately. I've become such a wimp. However, on this morning, I made myself take a walk, even though it was 34º (1º C) and slightly breezy. And yes, I wore my True Religion mules, because why not? I have made it an aspiration to wear sandals as long as possible into the winter, though I probably won't we

  27. Interesting replies, all! I can't really explain why I like what I do. I think part of it has to do with what one gets used to seeing. Back in the day, and I guess my perspective is from the 1980s, a 4 inch or 100 mm heel was just insanely high. Most women wore 2-3 inch for their "high" heels. There were a few heels that exceeded 4 inches (I seem to remember some metal heeled pumps from The Wild Pair that probably exceeded 4 inches, but they were certainly not daily wear for people). Then, in the 90s, heels basically went away for a while. Then, giant platforms came on the scene, with giant he

  28. It's been pretty mundane the last few weeks. Mostly short trips to get groceries. Nothing worth adding to this journal. But this past Saturday was worth noting. It started with a trip to the salon for a waxing update. A couple of hours later, and several winces later, I made it to the local HEB for groceries. Not sure why, but I got an unusually high number of compliments. Not sure why people were so nice this time, but I really enjoyed the compliments, it was a real pick-me-up. Mostly for the dress I was wearing, but I suppose that was more of a reflection on JC Penny than me, but I will take

Those who responded ( @Cali and @RonC ) - here you go, an thanks for your interest! Pls read my account above from August 31, where i write about this shoe outlet we happened upon. I had taken a pair of loafer back, that didn't fit me so well (my wife had gone there on her own a week or 2 before) but they didn't have a better size. So had to look for other options. The shop was about to close soon, and was virtually empty, so it was just us. I had almos

  31. Made another outing today this evening, spent 2 hours in Primark and bought more items, Including a black synthetic leather jacket, wet look leggins, dark blue leggins on sale, 1 short / 1 midi denim skirts and the block heel boots shown in the pics. I will return the leggins and swap for a smaller size or different item since they are not tight enough for my liking. I wanted to try items on, but due to the pandemic changings room are out of use. Initially I wore flats (since it wasn't raining) to match my ladies jumper I bought the other day, skinny Jean's , a black jacket and 40

I have shared with her this forum and we talked about some struggles a lot of us go through in our relationships. Heeling, understood here as a passion, desire or appreciation of a type of shoes... from just buying them and using indoors to be our main choice of footwear is just one aspect of who we are. Could be our choice of espiritual belief, sport to practice or a craft. Its not fair to have any asp

Really believe that we should stick and nurture relationships that our significant others are engaged and willing to help us to became better human beings and be true to ourselves. (and of course be that kind of companion to our partner) Could bet 4 or 5 years ago that having someone like her was impossible, only an out-of-reality dream... and then she is... not only accepting but enjoying, supporting and being a central part in my li

  40. I have a lot of heels in the 4.75-5.5"/12-14 cm range despite some of my postings or wearing heels in some members' presence higher than this. When Bakers was in operation so many of their heels were in the 5-5.5"/12.5-14 cm range and I bought many especially pumps back then. I do miss them. I never quite found a good replacement store. Most of my jeans are bootcut and I do have one flared pair which I have worn into Chicago with some high wedges. Nice adventures. HinH

Jaunt #561, 10/10/2020: In another instance of “go figure”, the weather was kooky, though in a good way as temps reached 70 with mostly sunny skies along with a little humidity which made things feel a tad warmer that it already was. That said, I went to the backup closet for a spring/summer item for today’s outing: a short sleeved floral print sheath dress from Sears along with the Payless “Corey” semi-patent flats, a black satchel bag and a disposable blue mask which I figured would pair better with my ensemble. Even though it’s October, I thought I could get away with such a brightly colore

And always posting on the same kind of stuff could for sure bores everyone I wear heels everyday at home or outside. Would creating “ the heels of the day “ blog with a new picture everyday, even with the same shoes be an option?

  46. For me, the most embarrassing moment in heels is actually the only embarrassing one, and I hope it keeps its record for sometime. Last year, when leaving a night club with my girlfriend, we had the same 6.3” onlymaker platform sandals. When crossing the street in front of the club, the sandal strap broke and I went down... Fortunately other than the shoe and my ego, I was fine. She helped me to stand again and get to the car. We got the shoe fixed in the weeks ahead but since this is my second pair of onlymakers that have straps getting lose when wearing them I’m reluctant to wear

Jaunt #560, 10/4/2020: From the “Go Figure” department, two days after I swapped out my spring/summer stuff for fall/winter attire, temps spiked into the mid 60’s. Go figure. Anyhoo, I took full advantage of the warm weather to wear a couple of items I bought at JCPenney on Saturday. When I first got serious about wearing leggings, I was content with plain old black, mostly because it looked sleek on me while emphasizing both my long legs and my rear end, however, since I enjoy experimenting, I thought I’d be daring and give something other than black a try,

Jaunt #558, 9/26/2020: When it comes to women clothing, I’ll try just about anything (except perhaps a swimsuit) once, just to see how a particular garment would look on me, if I like what I see, I’ll add it to the wardrobe, if I don’t, I’ll donate it to Goodwill. So, what did I experiment with on this outing, you ask? Cropped leggings. Over the course of the spring and summer, I had seen girls and women sporting those leggings, that made me wonder if I could make that item work, so, while in Lord & Taylor at the King of Prussia Mall on Saturday, I decided to take the splurge and bought a
