    Enjoy traveling, sports, and the great outdoors. Also like general fashion. Usually wear bootcut jeans, with boots or pumps in winter and wedges or other heeled sandals in other months and have paired these with some other items such as blouses or jewelry. I do enjoy higher heels above 5" and have occasionally worn 6-7" heels to different social settings.

  1. mlroseplant, You’re not much of a wedge fan on your feet but you don’t mind them on other feet. They are great for grassy areas no doubt. And, yes, you do have a reputation to keep. Don’t let Des Moines down! HinH
  2. RonC, The first part is correct. I am pretty sure I have more than double that 125 count from several years ago. The 18 pairs refers to those I have worn at least 3 or more times in different places and yes out of the house. Some shoes you buy however don't pass the outdoor test like walking on pavement for any period of time, uneven ground like fine gravel or grass, or they just aren't as comfortable an hour later than you thought. Most of the rest were worn once or twice or not out of an indoor setting at all. My observation, and my point is, just how few pairs made the multiple-wear in multiple places category. Call them the "go to heels". Just part of a self evaluation at this point of my wife really. Hope that clears it up. HinH
  3. Hey all, One of my favourite dresses with some NineWest American Vintage wedges. Second is some skinny jeans with Call It Spring sandals with 5.5"/16.5cm chunky heels.
  4. mlroseplant, Don't sell yourself short! I know of no finer heel model in Central Iowa than you. 😄 HinH jeremy1986, Your collection is coming along. I would caution you though there will come a point when you'll forget how many shoes you have or why you bought them. Especially once you take stock of how many heels you've worn even a single time. Your situation also needs to consider that yours aren't even worn in public. It is easy to buy something which is easy on the eyes and gives you such joy but you'll be amazed how it can get out of your control. Everything can be better enjoyed when it is done with moderation and insight. There have been forum questions before as to how many shoes any of us had and my answer was around 125 at the time I first replied. Problem I never actually counted later on. I strongly suspect I have more than double that and really should have a sale sometime soon. I have two sets of kneehigh boots, 4 pairs of pumps, 2 pairs of ankle boots, and about 10 pairs of wedges which I have worn on multiple occasions and to various venues such as restaurants, theatres, shopping centres, a few outdoor weddings and parties, and just walking around in some urban/suburban setting. Like I said, it is far too easy to let a passion go past what is reasonable to enjoy and maintain. Life is fairly short and available space for collectibles is probably yet shorter so be selective.

  5. mlroseplant, My thoughts are exactly what Cali said. That women who say they are open-minded find self-erected barriers when those heels are on THEIR man's feet. Sort of like those who espouse diversity but go home to someone of the same race, people who speak glowingly of public education while spiriting off their kids to a private school, or the neighbourhood evangelist who scorns modern indecency by day yet has a rolodex of mistresses by night. There's what people say and then there is what they actually do. It is far easier for society to live a polite lie by not admitting what all they actually know because it is simply more relaxing to sit back and watch the world go by than tell you what exactly they think. Lots and lots of people do this and have for centuries. Even if everyone that knows you wear heels were to comment on it what would be gained by them or by you?? Anyone could ask you why you wear heels but this question was answered to my satisfaction several years ago when a 9-year-old simply said, "because it gives him joy." If your son could figure this out so quickly perhaps it's time for everyone else to do the same. Keep calm and heel on! HappyinHeels
  6. Dangling is just another tool in the box women use to rope the men in. They keep doing what works because we keep watching. HinH
  7. Looks like you had a good Memorial Day weekend as well as other adventures. We got back to Wisconsin on 6 May after 6 months in Arizona and visited Yellowstone and Glacier Nat'l Parks on the way back. Having been working in our yard I have been watering flowers and small plants every day as if I were back in Yuma. It's so dry here. Then I remembered your comment about how this part of the country already had irrigation systems in place. It's called rain. Problem is that system has been off for a while! Your son has grown taller and his mechanical ability has grown wider since I last saw him. It's really remarkable. You may need another outbuilding for future projects! It's nice to finally be entering stores and the like without a mask. It's not like that everywhere though. Conversations with my dad's family in Quebec shows they had some of the most restrictive procedures anywhere in North America. Here's hoping for normal times ahead. Laissez le bon temps ruouler! HinH
