  1. I have worn heels to work a handful of times, my brown oxford looking booties with a 4" heel, but only on casual Fridays with bootcut jeans that cover them for the most part. I could probably get away with wearing pumps, as I am well known for my painted nails as it is. Maybe some day I will do it. See if all those silly emails about inclusiveness & diversity are worth the pixels there are printed with...
  2. It finally happened to me. Guess it was inevitable. Stopped off at the local mall to check out a sale at a boutique I have not been to before. Put on my David Charles wedges & off I went in search of the store. As I was looking around trying to find it I caught a seam in the pavement & "down goes Frazier". Geez, how embarrassing. Managed to even slip my foot out of the front of the shoe. Was only a few steps from my destination so I was able to limp inside & find a place to sit down & re-attach my shoe. A few people got a good laugh out of it, but otherwise no injuries, other than my ego that is...
  3. Not exactly new as I bought these heels some time ago, but the jeans are, & this is the 1st time I wore either of them out in public for any real length of time. Pumps are from Macys & the jeans were from Amazon...got a few looks but nothing interesting happened...
  4. My favorite pair of heels are my Nine West Tatiana nude pumps. I have worn them more than any other color...
  5. I drive quite a bit in my heels. Hasn't been a problem for me. The only time I have had a shoe issue while driving was when I was driving in flip flops of all things. I went from the gas to the brake pedal & the damn sole got caught in the carpet & folded in half, preventing me from getting firmly on the brakes. Ended up bumping into a towed trailer in front of me at the light. Didn't hurt the trailer a bit but put a nasty 4 foot long ding in my front cover along with a crack. Wont be doing that again, will stick to my 5" stilettos...
  6. Just the usual quick outings lately, and other than the occasional compliment, nothing much to say about them. In a first for me I lost possession of my phone while grocery shopping. I sat it down on the counter when I was paying for my smoothie. They sent an employee out into the store to find me and return it. Seems as though I am easy to remember for some reason...
  7. It has only happened to me once when I noticed my pic being taken (she had the flash on). Like you i dont care, i'm in public doing something that is not considered average so i have no expectations of privacy. Still, it is somewhat rude to do that, but i have no intentions of confronting anyone about it. I have had a young lady come up to me and ask if she could take my picture. I agreed & pulled up my pant leg so my heels were clear to see. She was nice about it, & it kinda made my day. I would never have a pretty girl ever ask to take my picture otherwise...Used to be older folks were the ones most agog about my look, but these days most everyone is accepting about it, as i have had some enjoyable conversations with all age groups lately...
  8. I would guess she (meaning the younger of the two ladies) was in her early twenties. The older lady about 40ish. The kid was too young it seemed to write that legibly...
  9. I live 30 miles north of Houston. It was a rainy day, so I was wearing a pair of tan mid-heel pumps, & jeans. I think it was from the car I parked next to. I pulled into the spot & realized someone was getting out of the door, so I backed up & let her out before pulling back in. They were an older lady, a younger lady, & a small child. They had stopped to adjust the kids shoes as I walked past them. I guess being low to ground already made my heels more noticeable. They didn't say anything, & I didn't give them a second look. Other than the workers who know me & chat with me, no one else commented on my heels. I have gotten hundreds of compliments, but this is the 1st piece of written encouragement I have received. I think its pretty cool, gonna keep it handy on my desk to look at from time to time...
  10. oohh, I have a pair of yellow pumps arriving this week, but I will not be starting any fires with them...
  11. Found this note on my car after a visit with my friends at the grocery store...
  12. Finally had a chance to get some solid heeling in. Started with a trip to my nail tech. Got a set of black nails with a magnetic overlay & man are they gorgeous. I never cared much for black but last time i was in a lady was getting this style done, & I was really impressed by them. Afterwards I stopped by the hardware store as I needed some potting soil. I wore flats for these 2 stops as I cant fit under the tech's desk in heels & the last time I tried lifting heavy bags in heels it didn't end so well for my ankle. But I switched over to my Jessica Simpson black stilettos for the rest of the day. Next stop was at Sportclips for a trim. My stylist happened to have some impressive black stiletto nails herself, so we had a nice talk about nails while she trimmed my hair. The stylist next to us remembered my last visit & asked about the trip a made to Chicago after she cut my hair. That was a fun stop & everyone was so cool about my heels & stuff. My next stop was the car wash where I again had a nice conversation with an older lady about nails. She said she didn't get to the salon anymore & was really impressed by the magnet effect. The cashier also comped my nails. My last stop was the grocery store. There are several folks that work there that know me by name now. I am quite certain that I was the subject of some training session or something. They have a tent set up at the entrance where they sell boiled shrimp that I frequent & the lady that runs it knew I wanted a pound of shrimp & 2 sausage links. She asked me where I had been today, then pined for the days she could wear heels, before an injury put an end to that. I think she lives vicariously through me these days. She is super sweet to me. As I was untangling a shopping cart from the others I had one of "those" moments when I managed to walk out of one of my heels. It has been ages since I have done that but I still find it quite embarrassing. Next I stopped at the smoothie kiosk & the young lady was another that remembers me & knew I wanted a peanut butter ripple. She usually sports a nice set of nails but was "naked" this time, but complimented me on mine. After making my way to the back of the store where they keep the tea, this guy (somewhat younger than me) riding a cart swings over close to me & said "I'm jealous". I'm thinking he was wanting to wear heels too, but then he said "They take mine next week". It took a second to realize he meant his feet! I was completely unprepared for that! What the hell do you say to someone when they say that? Best I could do was a "Sorry to hear that, have a nice day" Yeah, not my best reply, but geez. I was still a bit flustered by that encounter a few seconds latter when a young lady told me she like my heels & a fairly choked on my smoothie in reply. The rest of the visit went normal, with the usual odd compliment on my heels. When I got to the checkout, the cashier (that I have never used before today) immediately noticed my nails as I was unpacking my cart, then said "He always wears nice shoes" then laid across the conveyor belt to take a look. She was talking to the bagger that was wearing a trainee tag. Both of them were very interested in how my nails were done. This is the moment I began to wonder if I was the topic of a training session or just some break room gossip. Guess I will never know, but today sure was a good day. It felt normal to be out again...
  13. I was wondering if you guys would catch on to the photo weirdness! I process my photos using photoshop elements. I was trying to merge two shots into one showing the front & the back to emphasize how frekin' tall they are. I use the panorama to do it automatically. It works great, but this time it seems to have gotten confused & instead of stitching them side-by-side as I was expecting it tried to merge them half-and-half. Done this dozens of times & its never given me results like this. I laffed when I saw it & thought some might find it funny too. Its the sheer tallness of them with the platform that is not something I am normally attracted to, but these seemed to cute with the animal print to pass up. Once I got used to the height of them they are quite fun to walk in...
  14. Another Amazon splurge purchase. Was looking for another pair of wedges as I only have 1 pair in my collection. These are way outside my normal scope of style, as I prefer the classic looks, but these kept coming up as recommended ever time I went to Amazon & I finally said what the heck. They are from some fly by night Chinese supplier, no name anywhere on the shoe or the box, will have to look at my purchase history if anyone is curious to know. They arrived pretty fast for overseas shipping. There was a strong chemical smell when I opened the box but it dissipated when i aired them out. These turned out to be pretty fun! The fit is excellent, with no sliding around when i walk. The straps are the easiest to fit up of any of the strappy heels I own, they are adjustable at both ends & stayed where I arranged them (I hate it when cross straps slide over to one side). The 1st few steps are daunting but i got them figured out soon enough. Wore them around the house for a few hours with no issues other than tired calves. I am happy I pulled the trigger on them. Gonna try them in public this weekend...
  15. Spent months following this board, gaining the courage to pursue this passion we share. Your stories inspired me so I thought I would share my excursions & maybe help the next guy overcome their fears. I also want to chronicle my worn heels so I don't wear the same ones too many times...got so freakin' many of em now it's hard to keep track! So, Halloween, wanted to duck the trick/treaters in my neighborhood, so stopped by chuy's Mexican restaurant for the evening after work. Wore my black patent pumps by Sam Edelman. Was a bit surprised how loud they were, but I find the sounds heels make to be appealing, so no biggie. Place was almost full. Was seated in the midst of everyone. Had a nice meal & sat back to watch TCU & enjoy some margaritas. The young ladies seated behind me asked if I wanted some candy, then complimented me on my nails. Spent about 2 hours tv/people watching then went home... That Saturday did my normal shopping for the week at Walmart. Wore my Charles Davis wedge heels (so comfy). Love this look with jeans. No encounters to speak of... This past Friday stopped by Cracker Barrel for dinner. Wore these nude peep toes from Torrid. Was somewhat crowded. Had one older gentleman seated at the next table with his family notice my heels. Just gave me a little smile & went back to eating. Finished my fried shimp & went up front to pay. Asked a group of girls to let me grab some peppermint sticks & one remarked "oh, he's wearing heels", was expecting some giggling, but they just went on their way like it was no big deal...
