    Help me decide an outfit

    KB, As a rule, black and navy generally do not mix well. But if the fabrics are very different, such as denim jeans with a black gabardine or twill jacket (can't really determine the fabric from your photos), it could be acceptable. Since you are flying home, however, you might want to re-think the boots if you have to take them off for TSA security. There won't be any trouble with heeled boots, but boots in general take time and effort to remove and put back on. I generally like to use something easier, such as sandals, pumps, or clogs. Just a thought. I love the black boots, and I have a similar pair. Fun to wear! Safe travels, Steve

    The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    The interiors are often coated fabrics which are made to look like leather. The flexible coating, when new, contains a plasticizer, a chemical to keep the coating supple and flexible and help it adhere to the fabric. As the coating ages, the plasticizer slowly evaporates, leaving behind a coating that becomes brittle and inflexible. As the fabric flexes or rubs against your skin, your socks, or your hosiery, the coating flakes off in little pieces, leaving a mess and an uncoated fabric. As long as the bare spots aren't visible, you can still get use from the shoes. I have a pair of Naturalizer "Vitality" pumps which are 9 years old, and a pair of Aerosoles "Born Free" slide sandals which are deteriorating like that. I've had other shoes do that, too. The spandex (the stretchy yarns in hosiery - Lycra is one brand name) will often deteriorate the same way over time as the elasticizer, the chemical that keeps the spandex flexible and supple, evaporates over time and leaves behind a non-stretchy fabric.

    What matches purple heels?

    Looks great! Avoid red. If the red has orange in it, it will clash with purple. If it's more of a magenta, which is where your shirt leans to, then it might be okay. Good luck! Steve

    What Happened to White?

    Great to see you posting again, Bluejay! You've been AWOL too long! Post more often. You always have good things to say and you say it well! Steve

    Heels outside at home

    My guess is that it may be a fetish, but I'm afraid I don't share it. But I agree, to each his own. Years ago (1995 maybe?) I attended a beach wedding and many of the women wore high heels which sunk into the sand. It looked like they were wearing ballet flats with the toes sticking upward. No graceful fluidity there!

    Show us your most masculine heels

    I'm with you, SF. My parents made me wear tie shoes in grade school, but I really liked sandals and loafers. Finally I got a chance to wear what I liked starting in about 8th grade. I had a thing for women's shoes then, too, but never had a chance to own any until I went away to college. I'm not a "wing tip" kinda guy, that's for sure! Steve

    Character shoes

    Ok, thanks for setting me straight. I had never heard the term "character shoes" before. I've learned something new! Steve

    The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    Way to go, Mr. Plant! And welcome back to HHP. Some of us have noticed your absence and missed you. It's always good to read your posts. You're a good role model. Glad you had a good time and got to wear heels most of it. I'm sure you got lots of looks, but most people are polite and don't say anything. Steve

    Recent meets

    It's been fun to host you each time, HiH! I look forward to our future get-togethers! Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you had a good trip east. Steve

    Reason for wearing heels??

    That's happened to me a lot! Steve
  13. Kneehighs, I think you've been a valuable contributor to HHP and a useful resource in posting articles and interesting reading. If people don't like it, don't worry about it. You're never going to please everybody all the time. Please continue doing what you've been doing and those of us who care will appreciate it. Steve I agree with you completely (but then I usually do!). I have found that by wearing heels nearly every day (and ballet flats or mary janes when I'm not in heels), people do get used to it. I'm sure some notice and are too polite to say anything. Here at the retirement community in which I have lived for almost 4 years, only one person, a new female resident, has said anything to me, and that was a compliment. I am not only completely accepted, but appreciated as a caring and helpful member of the community. What I wear on my feet doesn't matter. Steve

    Road Trip to Shop!

    I've been impressed by the Shoe Show store on the east side of Columbus. I don't often get to Ft. Wayne, but next time I do, I'll be sure to stop in to the store there. Steve
