    I had an interesting encounter today. It all started the other day. I was searching through Facebook Marketplace as I usually do. I came across a pair of black patent stilettos. They looked great and the $10 price tag didn't hurt either. So I messaged the seller to ask her a few basic questions. Things like the brand and size and such. At no point in our conversation did I mention or lead on that the shoes were for me. I finally told her I was interested and I could pick up the shoes tomorrow. She said great and gave me her address. She also said she had some other shoes I might be interested in. So I drove to her house at the agreed-upon time and knocked on the door. She came to the porch area and let me in. She brought me the shoes and without missing a beat she asked if I would like to try them on. The whole drive over I was wondering how it was going to go down. And I was prepared for anything that might arise. I thought about her proposal for just a split second and said sure! I put them on and she asked how they fit? I told her they were really comfortable if not slightly large. Then she asked if I wear them around town referring to heels. I told her I do. Then she said if you don't mind me asking are you a crossdresser or trans etc etc. I felt really comfortable at this point and she seemed that way from the get-go. I told her none of the above. I told her I just wear whatever I want. If it looks good I wear it. She said okay. Then she started telling me about some trans person she knew years back in town. And all the struggles she had before she eventually died. After a brief conversation she mentioned she had another pair of heels that I might be interested in. She said they were red patent and she went to fetch them. I was excited because I didn't have any red patent in my collection. She came back shortly with the shoes. I was slightly dejected as they were more of a maroon wine color. They were nice just the same though. They were Jessica Simpson brand. They had a 5-inch heel and a platform. They also had a keyhole cut-out in the toe box. I slipped out of the black ones and tried these on. They fit great and we're just as comfortable as the other ones despite the added height. She told me how great both pairs looked on me. She told me these ones would be $15 if I wanted them. I happily paid her the $25. She grab me a plastic bag to put the shoes in. And then she said if I have any shoes for sale later I will message you a picture. I thanked her and left one happy camper! Two hot pairs of heels for $25 and a very positive shoe buying experience. The only negative is that when I got home I noticed the patent on the Black shoes had started to separate a little bit from the side of the heel shafts. I missed that earlier but since I only paid $10 for the shoes it was no big deal. A little glue and I should be back in business. I am going to get pics up of the shoes as soon as I can so stay tuned! Oh and I forgot to mention that earlier in the day I found a near-perfect pair of mint green patent stilettos in a thrift store for less than $10 also! So let's recap. I got three pairs of heels plus a story and interaction of a lifetime. And not to mention a potential source of future shoe buying. And all it cost me was 30 bucks! You can't beat that!
  2. I usually have pretty good luck at thrift stores. And a good portion of my collection has come from such stores.

    I have bought some new shoes lately. I also got rid of some stuff that I didn't wear anymore or stuff that was worn out for one reason or another. So I figured it was time for a inventory update. But this time I had some fun with it. I have a shelf in my place that normally stores dvd's and such. It needed to be cleaned . So I figured I would use the opprtunity to take some pics of my shoes. I have always dreamed of having a shoe closet for all my shoes. Or at least some nice shelves for my colecction. So once the shelve was bare and cleaned I began to organize my shoes on it and took some pics for documentation. Currently My shoes are stored in several large cardboard boxes. So it also gave me the opprtunity to reorganize my boxes. I also got to try on most of my collection again and rediscover heels I forgot I had! I was like a girl In a shoe store trying on pair after pair. I was having so much fun with it that I didn't realize how many hours it took to accomplish the task at hand. And it hardly seemed like work at all. I filled the shelf 3 seperate times with 5 pairs per shelf for a toal of 25 on each fill. The only thing I didn't include in the pics were my flats and any boots higher than ankle height. For the pictures I took one for each fill and then I joined them so it looks like I have 3 seperate shelves side by side. I organized the shelves as I imagined I would if I had some for real. The first shelve was all my black and darker colored heels. Then I transitioned to my brown and neutral colored heels on the second shelf. And then I finished my 3rd shelf with my colorred heels on top follwed by my wedges and finally my ankle boots on the bottom. Here is the result as well as a inventory by numbers. high heel shoes 60 pairs wedges 7 pairs ankle boots 8 pairs knee high boots 7 pairs flats 3 pairs 85 pairs in total
  4. Congratulations on reaching 500 Jeff! Now on to 1000!

  6. Well done! Can't wait to read about number 500.
  7. Love the shoes! Well done!
  8. Here is my latest acquisition. I picked these up in a thrift store for $15. They are black snakeskin pumps with a heel measuring just over 4 inches. The brand is Sam and Libby. They are extremely comfortable to wear. And they are in excellent condition. I can see these being my go to heels. they will get a lot of use.
  9. Another successful outing. Well done!

    Here I go again! I went on another short yet uneventful outing. Nothing much to report on that front. So lets just get down to brass tacks. I metioned In the general forum about a red blazer that I purchased and I new I would be wearing out at first chance. And that happened to be today! I already knew what I was wearing. Soon after purchasing it I spent some good time trying out different shoe and clothes combination that would work. I came up with several great outfits to wear. So I am sure this red blazer will be a staple in many upcoming outings.So here is what I dreamed up for this one. The outfit 1) guess black patent pumps with 3.5" heel 2) Old Navy Rockstar greyish white skinny jeans with a bit of shine to them 3) black t-shirt 4) Streetwear Society red blazer 5) Aldo black and Gold Handbag
  11. If the quiz was easy I don't think you would have asked. So I am going to say the pictures are in order. A and then B.
  12. Here is my latest purchase. And I'll tell you how it came to be. I was flipping through the guide on my tv and noticed that the show Jessie was on. Now the show itself is your typical Disney Channel kids show that ran for roughly 4 seasons and is now on in reruns. Not the kind of show any of us would watch on a regular basis, if at all! But fashion wise it is the exact oppisite! I have seen bits and pieces of the show and it is a feast for the fashion freestylers eyes. The show stars actress Debby Ryan who plays a live in nanny to 4 children of rich parents. The parents are hollywood types and are very rarely on the show as they are usually away on business. But when they are on the show the mother played by Christina Moore is always dressed up in some kind of dress and heels. Her daughter played by Peyton Roi List is tween age on the show and is dressed more conservatively, but still stylish! And Debby is on screen alot and is always wearing something stylish which usually includes a nice pair of heels. So being curious I turned to the show for a bit to see if there was anything good fashion wise. Sure enough Debby was on and she was wearing a very stylish outfit which included heels and a very nice red blazer. Almost all of my jackets and coats are black or some other neutral color. But that red blazer looked really sharp! I knew right then and there that I had to have one. So the search began! Today was my lucky day! I was in a thrift store and found 2 red blazers that may have fit the bill. I tried the first one on and It was too big! I was swimming in it. I tried the second one on and bingo! The cut and fit were perfect and it was in mint shape. It fit like a glove, and looked amazing! I knew I was buying it but the $6 price tag made my deciision even easier. The blazer itself is made by Streetwear Society and it has a leopard print lining inside. As I siaid earlier, it looks amazing! It has a very slimming effect on me. And I already have some Ideas on what to wear it with. But I will still glady take suggestions from everyone here. I will be wearing it out the first chance I get!
  13. Sounds like you had fun. Great story!
