  1. @mlroseplant I had no idea you had a youtube channel. I checked out a few of your videos and realized you're a very talented musician! Many years ago I competed in the Fort Dodge Symphony concerto competition. I played Prokofiev's 3rd piano concerto. Ended up losing to a 11 year old playing Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No. 2. Who can compete with a 11 year old playing at that level?!?! Good experience though.
  2. I honestly didn't expect any less when I made the posts. I've been a part of the "internet community" since the late 90s and it really hasn't changed much since then. I also agree that most of the pictures are the same thing over and over again in a very boring environment. Take that coupled with all the headless shots and it just makes things look very awkward, even kind of cringey (if that's a word). The thing is the pictures are just as much a depository for me as they are me trying to express myself. Since I'm too scared to go back out in public for the time being it's nice for me to still
  3. Since these forums only allow so much space for uploading photos I decided to start a page on imgur. I've made two posts so far, but lots of pictures to look at if you're interested. It's really interesting to me how much disapproval I am getting from the imgur community, at least in the like/dislike category. I uploaded my second post just 20 or so minutes ago and I already have 8 down votes. I'm not really upset by it, but it's just something I noticed. Anyway, if you're interested here's the link. You'll see a lot of old stuff that I've posted as well as some new stuff too. I hope you enjoy
  4. I know I know. Whenever I do it it's never really that big of a deal either.
  5. Just because. Never 100% overcame the fear and just let my nerves get the best of me.
  6. I just received these beautiful Nine West Tatiana pumps in neon green snake print. Wasn't sure how I'd like them, but they look so much better in person. Just threw something together quick to try and show them off. I kinda like the all black, then when you get to the shoes your eyes get shocked. I used to wear my heels in public, but it's been so long that all those nerves of mine have come back and I've kinda just lost the motivation to overcome them. Anyway, here's the pictures.
  7. EDIT: The sale is probably over by now. If I knew how to delete the topic I would.
  8. Thanks! I'm convinced my dog thinks I'm crazy. When I get a new pair of shoes I do a lot of walking around the house to try them out and he just follows me around stairs at me with this blank look on his face like "what the heck are you doing?" He's a good boy though.
  9. Thank you! I've seen some of your pictures and really admire your style. You're bold and classy with how you dress and you look absolutely stunning. When I do go out I never make an attempt to "hide" my shoes. Really, in the end, you're only hiding them from yourself. You're fooling yourself thinking that long wide pants are hiding the type of shoes you're wearing. If one were to just look down it would be obvious what you have on your feet. With that being said, might as well wear something that compliments the shoes you are wearing. If you're going to wear high heels in public it's bett
  10. Thanks for your response and kind words. I still don't go out very often. It's very daunting. The handful of times I have been out nobody has said a word to me, and that's how I like it. My goal is to fit in, not stand out. Although compliments are nice I don't really like the attention.
  11. Like I've mentioned in previous posts of mine, I've always struggled with finding good casual outfits to wear my heels with. A nice pair of leather pumps have the tendency to scream "formal" or "dressy". It's not particularly challenging to dress down pumps, but I'm very particular about how I want my entire silhouette to look. I'm also very particular about wanting the majority of my clothes to come from the men's department. I've kind of made it my hobby to find stylish and casual outfits that not only look good, but also come mostly from the men's department. There's still a stigma that men

    Men's shorts have been getting much shorter over the last several years, still no competition for women's shorts, but the thighs are finally starting to get some sunlight! haha The problem is when I shave I get these nasty red bumps that don't go away. If I shave again the bumps bleed all over the place. I've tried different lotions, soaps, shaving creams, etc. Nothing really works. I've also used veet and nair. Those work pretty well, but I don't think using those chemicals on a regular basis is very healthy, so I avoid that. I could get a wax, but the money i'd spend on that coul

    I definitely don't have the confidence for public skirt wearing. Maybe it's because I don't shave my legs. I tried shaving several times, but it's just too much work and it actually puts my legs in a great deal of pain. I think it's because I have really thick leg hair. Regardless, skirts are fun but not an every day type of thing for me. I really don't wear flare jeans anymore, skinny jeans are kinda my thing right now. Like I said, skinny pants of any type cut right at the ankle with a nice pair of leather pumps just looks really really nice to me.

    I've found during my outings that no matter what type of heel i wear, or how hidden or exposed they are I still feel just as nervous. So, i just try to find an outfit that i really think I look good in and go with that. As far as clothes that come from the men's department vs clothes that come from the women's department. I find clothes that are made for male bodies tend be a lot more comfortable. If you look in the right places you can definitely find a lot of men's clothes that look more like something a female would typically wear. Especially with jeans. I used to wear women's jeans on
  15. nobody should feel like an outcast, so i'll rephrase what i said... Have any of you ever heard of Paul Duane? He's this really cool guy from Salt Lake City that wears heels with shorts on a regular basis. He makes the look seem so effortless and clean. I love his style. How's that?

    Thank you for your kind words! You've always been one of my biggest inspirations on this site. I always appreciate what you contribute.
  17. I don't know, I made the assumption because I am in a forum full of men who wear high heels. I figured, like me, a lot of you have searched for "men who wear high heels" on the internet. He is a very popular man who wears high heels. Sorry for being so bold to make that assumption, i'll keep my assumptions in check next time @mlroseplant. I didn't realize such an assumption would arouse your flippancy.
  18. I'm sure most of you know who Paul Duane is. He makes the heels with shorts look so effortless and clean. I love his style.

    To each their own. I've seen your pictures. You look good! Everyone has their own unique style, and nobody should feel limited to anything that doesn't bring them joy.

    Thanks for the support guys! All the clothing I wear, with the exception of the shoes, come from the men's department. You can actually find really great skinny jeans, with the look and feel of what you might find in the women's department, in a lot of men's sections. It's nice because they're actually cut for a male figure. The fit feels more...right...for lack of a better term. I've always found women's pants to feel just a little off, and women's tops don't work for me because I have kind of broad shoulders. A really good online retailer where you can find a very broad variety of clot

    Thanks, I need to come up with some outfits to dress down the pumps. Pumps are my favorite style for sure. The outfit I am wearing with the booties would probably work with the red pumps, but I need to find something different. 99% I'm a shirt untucked kinda guy, so the formal styles are me trying something new.
  22. I just love the feeling of wearing heels and knowing i'm doing what I want and not caring about what other people think. It's such an amazing liberating experience. The courage to be myself is very fleeting, so i try to take advantage of it when I can. I'm in the military, and I know that if I was found out by my friends, about 75% would laugh and make jokes (and eventually move on), the other 25% would be cool and not really make a big deal out of it. The most important part is that it would end up just being something normal to the people I know, but getting over the initial hum
  23. I wasn't sure if I should post this in a new thread versus my old thread, or in "share your best freestyle fashion pictures". Sorry if this infringes on any forum rules. I just wanted to share a few more pictures. I loved the nude Sam Edelman Hazel pumps so much I also bought them in red. I also picked up a pair of Michael Kors open toed booties that are super fun and really comfortable. I hope you enjopy the outfits. I realized most of the outfits I posted were pretty formal/dressy, like something you'd wear to the office. So with the Michael Kors booties I tried to dress them down a bi
  24. I'm not much of a coffee shop type person anyway. Thanks for the advice.
  25. I know a lot of you probably already know about this guy, but I thought I'd share for those who don't. He's a violinist, i think in Italy, that wears heels. His name is Il Violino Magico. He's got an active instagram page and a facebook page. Not only does he have great fashion tastes, the music he plays is absolutely beautiful. Check him out if you're looking for new people to follow on your socials. https://www.facebook.com/ilviolinomagico/
