  1. Well...what should I say? I am torn. I am torn between something positive along Jkrenzer's answer, basically reminding myself that this forum is about people who want to explore and extend boundaries when it comes to men's fashion. Then again, I do think that freestyle should not mean lack of style, but rather that you manage to cross a line but in a way that people see you and those with some (limited) fashion sense will go and say: cool! or even "wow!". However I can't see this in the outfit you have chosen. Why? First, because it was very sunny and warm in Frankfurt. Look around... and
  2. Hi, you might want to stop by at the Palmengarten in Frankfurt city, one of the largest botanical gardens in that area. Take a look here. Just a coincidence, but there will be a "festival of lights" taking place on Saturday in the Palmengarten starting at around 7 pm and ending at around 10:45 pm with large fireworks. See translation here. Other than that, the MainTower, also located in Frankfurt, is the highest vantage point above Frankfurt and allows a magnificient view. Make sure to bring your camera. More info here. For going to a Zoo, you actually would have to travel sligh
  3. Go to pinterest, search for "dos donts jeggings" ... and you would find a gazillion of photos how to wear them. One very common theme that applies both for jeggings and leggings: Wear a top that is long enough to cover the front of the jeggings/leggings, e.g. a very long turtleneck. This way, you don't have to think about tucking. Why do women prefer to wear a longer top with leggings/jeggings? -- as much as the front might look smooth, there is also no space for imagination left when looking at the booty. For slim women, that might be a nice look, but 90% of what I've seen literally asks
  4. I would also go with the most comfy ones. If both are "comfy", I would also add another point of view: style. The wider block heel is very "in" at the moment, while the narrow heel is a more classic form. If you want to go for something that will be still totally ok fashion-wise in 2 years from now, go for the narrower heel. If you are like me, go for the block heel. I know that I probably would want to have block-type heeled boots in 2 years from now... and then I won't be able to find such a pair, as fashion has moved on

    On Jan. 9, 2013 ,You showed a pair of black patent leather ankle boots. They were from " Ballin "

    The page was # 59. ( For Everyone ) Who has bought some new Boots. They have a Wing Tip design

    on the boot with a 5" high heel. I have no idea who Ballin is, or how to get in touch with them. It is not

    fare that you should be the only one with shoes that beautiful. I may not be able to get a pair of them

    after this length of time. However, I would like to give it a shot.  Much thanks in advance.

      I know which one you mean - this one:


      It was made by Ballin from Italy (website), but this type of shoe is no longer made by them. Ballin doesn't seem to have "basic" types of shoes that they keep producing, but they produce totally different styles, very much dependent on what is currently "in". Sorry, I can't help you with finding another one of these - it would have been easier back in 2012/13... :-?


  6. I don't want to derail this topic (playing in high-heels), but Thighbootguy: You are totally right when you say that "some peoples mind handle that kind of syncopation so effortlessly". I did play piano when I grew up, but once I started studying, I didn't have access to a piano anymore, and since then, my abilities faded. Nonetheless, I was never very good at these kinds of pieces that require your left hand to play something that is basically "separate" from your right hand, as it is often the case in Jazz. My favorite piece (I tried and failed miserably) is this one - it picks up speed at 0
  7. I've got the Bianca Botta boots (knee high) in size 41.5 (EUR), with a heel height that states 140 mm on the box. Just measured it: 140 mm heel. So both the box label and the heel height are identical. The other pair of Louboutins is currently stored away in the basement... but these are boots too. You are probably looking for pumps, right? In general, I find Louboutins to be on the narrow side. They are only topped by YSL. If you have wide feet, don't buy Louboutins, and definitely don't buy YSL
  8. First of all, only you know whether everyone would be fine with you appearing there in high heels. Even with friends who know that I wear heels, I would ask them first whether they would be ok with me appearing with heels on their wedding party - it's a special event for them, so I want to honor their wishes. Not every guest might be ok with our choice of footwear. But let's assume really everyone is fine with you wearing heels. You mentioned that it is a large lawn/field that this party is taking place. You really want to wear stiletto heels to a party that's taking place on a lawn? Seri
  9. @mlroseplant Michael Kors shoes are made in... guess? Right... China. What I am writing now is an educated guess: China uses the metric system. So when you measure any heels, you would have to do that in centimeters when they come from China. My assumption is that the heels they make are not exactly proportional to the size of the foot, but do have "jumps" to the next higher heel height that is being produced. So... they are jumping from 5.125 inches (approx. 13 cm) to 5.5 inches (14 cm). My assumption is that the maker chose to go to the next available height for the larger
  10. @robbiehhw: I agree on all that you said, and trust me, if my parents hadn't done what they did, I would have transitioned (had sent a CT scan of my skull to Dr Ousterhout's office who was quite famous in the TS community, had booked my flights to San Francisco). I felt great on HRT, and I felt numb once I discontinued. There is a large spectrum of people with GD - for some, transition is the only way out, some can live without transitioning and do cope with it somehow. What I wanted to remind FantasiArt of was that it is a decision not taken lightly, and that there are many ways to cope
  11. You might wanna check out the tsroadmap website, which I found quite helpful. I was around your age when I felt the need to transition - I managed not to (went to therapy for over a year, was diagnosed officially as being TS and started hormone therapy - when I told my parents, things went downhill for my transition. Today, I am glad that I didn't transition, as I managed to incorporate lots of traditionally female things to my daily life). But also be sure, and with "sure" I mean freakingly absolutely sure that you need to transition. If you long to wear women's clothing, it might feel u
  12. Hmm... looked at the different styles... most of them look way too much "Jeffrey Campbell" to me - the platform simply is too high, the shoes look out of proportion. Maybe as a 15 year old, yes, but at age 30 or 40... no, thank you. The wedges looked similar to the Rick Owens ones at first, but then again... platform too high. I don't like shoes that are too pointed, so "George" is also out. That leaves "Chad" is the only remainder, which also leaves me torn. On the one hand, I've seen a similar style by certain designers (reminds me a little of YSL Tribtoo), but then again, this style is
  13. Shopsyro: I like their mission statement, but they really should think about the "community" they are linking to. The current link just seems like the developer put in some random text, just as if I would do this: oijasdoijasd.com - their domain is fjnfj.com, which is for sale . Maybe someone could give them a hint to link to this forum
  14. @MackyHeels I am a US size 8.5 (men) and I normally wear US size 11 for women. Very few shoes in US size 10 also fit me (sneakers from New Balance and heels from Michael Kors), with some designers (Louboutin) I have to go up to a US 11.5 or even a 12 (women). So... I would assume that your women's size is a US 12, with very few 11 fitting you and probably some designers where you even would have to go up to a 13. Sorry to say: you are out of luck. I know hardly any designer brand that produces a size 12 or even 13 in their heels.
  15. @northshoreguy1981 For some reasion I like the Tony Bianco heels better, but they look kind of dark purple in one of the pics. I would prefer black to be combined with that dress. I think combining the blazer with the dress is a classic combination that works for both men and women, so it should work with this dress as well. If possible try to cut the pictures just below the head, so it's better to judge how the combination looks like. Overall a nice combination!
