    Best heels to travel in?

    oops - all my heels are metal. I make a little bit of clickety click. Good advice re carrying flats - I always have a folding pair in my handbag. It doesn't matter if I am flying or just normal day - always carry flats.

    Your maximum heel height

    I just voted 4 to 5 inches I wear this height every day, and higher if its special occasion or I want to be a bit higher ! I wear stilettos almost always - mind you I don't believe they are any harder to wear, in my experience the height is the main factor before the heel style. The benefit of a standard stiletto pump is they have no weight so they are much more comfortable to wear, and they have flexibility unlike platforms. Almost all of my heels are no bigger than 5mm wide on the heel, one or two are around 7mm, some are around 3.5mm I think.

    What colour of belt.

    white belt is a good call although - what about swapping the pants for an a-line skirt, above knee in the same colour as your pants - perhaps in a fine cordurouy/suede? (I love those pumps - and they'll look fab with your ankles out - and a skirt does that best in my opinion. but back to topic - definitely I think a white belt is the best option.

    Best heels to travel in?

    I wear standard pumps cause I can step out of them if need be - although I have only had to take my heels off twice out of heaps of flights. You know - no buckles, straps, zips or laces - just the low vamp pump. Heel around 4 inches, or whatever you're comfy with. They can be worn with trousers/pants or a skirt You can slip your feet out of them easily on the plane.

    The Jaunts of JeffB!

    So true.... heels are just awesome. One thing I might add is that I normally wear taller heels cause I like the extra height, but I do find the lower heels - especially when they are a kitten heel or a stiletto style but just shorter - they are way harder to wear - or at least I find that. I have more near accidents and slides etc in a 2 inch pointy heel than I do in my taller stilettos... In some ways I think they take more skill to balance side to side? I love wearing a lower heel - but still a skinny heel - I reckon its such a classical look. Pitty about shoes of Prey too - I reckon those pumps of JeffBs look divine and I never got a chance to order any!

    Being asked to try your heels on

    I reasonably often (say once a month at the most) get asked by a woman if she can try my heels on. its never the first approach, like she wouldn't rock up and ask me if she can try on my shoes, but she might have complimented me already and if I seem ok then she asked then, or a little later. sometimes if one person tries them on, then another wants to as well. If a woman asks nicely and is stylish herself and I sense she is genuine (which almost all are) then I swap shoes with her. I won't let a man put his feet inside my heels though! They're off limits despite sometimes being asked usually when they see me swapping shoes. just wondering if anyone else gets this degree of curiousity?

    Maybe buy myself a dress?

    You might be better to go for separates? I think your waist might be the challenge as they go up in 1 to 2 inch steps per size (8 -> 10, 10->12 etc) but I think you will be getting into very large sizes and won't have the choices of dresses readily available. I have laid a couple of my dresses flat and measured the waist vs my waist and there is also a few inches of slack there...so you don't want it tight - unless the dress is off shoulder/bodice obviously. I am a measly 27.5 on my waist - which I think is a US 8 - but I wear Australian 10/12 normally - just goes to show the sizes vary between country of origin as well so labels saying size 12 or 14 or whatever could be up or down by at least a size. I don't need a corset etc which is why I like dresses cause they are so simple - but perhaps a corset would knock a bit off your waist measurement? Or I have just had a brainwave.... you could opt for an empire line style dress - that way your waist measurement is less critical since the dress is only fitted right underbust and flares therafter ? Typically though I think these are knee length dresses (or shorter) but they are a very popular style as they disguise body conscious issues, such as big bottom/big thighs/tummy etc... and women choose this style for these reasons.... however they are much looser around the middle ! I have a good handful of empire line dresses. You could also buy a midi skirt/top separately - this is not an uncommon thing as getting a dress to suit your measurements is not an exact science - which is why so many women don't wear dresses either ! This way you could get the skirt length you're after and have any top you want. I would suggest big flared midi and a fitted top so you have that flowing silhouette? And if you do find one brand etc that fist then even if you don't buy it make a note of the brand and look around for more styles that you do like. Hope this helps. Good luck

    Good advice JeffB I have heard that Long Tall Sally are good quality !

    Maybe buy myself a dress?

    for my 10 cents worth... You have absolutely got to try a dress on - sizing varies a lot, and the the waist will be the issue more than anything else ! And as for length if you are taller than an average woman then you will struggle to get a long length dress - so you would be far better to go for a knee length as that is the most flattering hemline on ANY legs. (oh and don't forget your waist measurement is 2-3 inches above your tummy button!)

    Best Heels for Your Foot Type

    No mention of my pointy toe stiletto pump ? Perhaps I am not supposed to wear heels anyway? I'm not planning on stopping wearing heels!

    Being asked to try your heels on

    the best thing is wearing her heels while she wears mine. Its like a mutual understanding.

    Reason for wearing heels??

    Sounds like if you in mixed terrain that a larger heel is more practical. I don't go anywhere that hasn't got hard surfaces/pavements/sealed roads etc so I can get by in stilettos readily without issues. I only have to take my heels off for health and safety reasons now and again. (I think my skirt/hemlines give me more trouble than my shoes do! This is exactly why I love my stilettos. They are rock solid from the heel to the toe - no weight but solid and the toe bends making them easy to wear. Only poor quality stiletto will flex - the shank itself will always be solid as compared to flat shoes. (But obviously a tall heel is not as good as a lower heel for our feet - so its moderation all around!)
  16. I will be. Don't know what clothes I'll wear - perhaps something simple like a 3/4 sleeve dress with heels - it will depend on the weather but it looks mixed weather for New Year here.... its supposed to be summer but its not really here yet !

    What Happened to White?

    I prefer a pointy toe on most of my shoes - just for aesthetics. I do like the contrast of a round to in a nude pump as long as it is complimented with a fierce heel to offset the innocent look of the round toe. The funny thing is I don't particularly like the white heel-less pumps above - I bought them because they were trendy a while back and I have had them for ages now. Whenever I wear them they get so many ooohs and aaaahs.... so they are a bit of spice up a basic outfit shoe now.
  18. I think most fashion conscious women are fashionistas - they wear what they do more for themselves and other women who are also fashionistas - primarily not to lure men or to fuel envy in other women - but because they like to look good in their own eyes. Naturally they swim in circles of like minded women. And in the larger fish tank - well we have a lot of women who don't get into that because they have never tried, just knock the fashionable ones back because it easier to be critical than to make an effort yourself.And as for the guys - well most don't notice the effort, those that do still don't get the styles, and a very small percentage of guys can probably appreciate it. I don't think its about stoking an envy - in my experiences women know I am not trying to outdo them. I actually do try to outdo them as I like to have the best legs, or the nicest outfit if I can but I appreciate being beaten and it makes me try harder I appreciate the fashion and the style of clothes and shoes - and if women sense that I do - then they get it - a fellow fashionista - not a enemy. Hard to explain quickly but that's what its like for me.

    Reason for wearing heels??

    Ever thought about a thinner heel? If you are going to wear heels a lot - as I do - I prefer the light weight of a stiletto. No harder to wear - in fact I honestly think they are easier for me, but the beauty is the comfort of a solid heel without the weight and clunkiness of a block/wedge heel ? and the shoe can flex better which is kinder on your feet if you spend a long time in your heels. Just a thought if you are long term looking at wearing ea lot a stiletto might be a good option for a heel as well. Most women who are permanent heel wearers etc opt for a stiletto and I think that the light weight option is part of the reason. The other is obviously the style choice, or perhaps it is the style they most want to wear - but I am believe comfort is a big factor. Regardless I can imagine you'll be exited waiting for these new boots !!!

    Jeremy's heel stories, pictures & thoughts

    they can be a damn nuisance sometimes - and other times they stay on beautifully. No good with stockings/hosiery. I like them because they are a variation on the standard pump.

    found these in your size on amazon.... Steve Madden Daisy 30 - 100 NZD - so half of that in Pounds. good quality - not high but a great staple heel. Goes with heaps and works as a great nude alternative too! oh and I found these too. Riverberry Lucy in Sz9 - NZD 19 - 39 - so again half that in pounds. what do you reckon ?

    Jeremy's heel stories, pictures & thoughts

    A knee length skirt flatters everyones legs.... and if you have the figure for it and the right shaped slender legs/hips/derriere you can go shorter. But I am certain that all legs from the knee down look better in high heels. Bare legs is more slimming looking - and lets one appreciate ones shoes better ? Just my ramblings. I want to see these nude pumps now....
