  1. From my perspective, I'd say the last pair looks best with the shorts.
  2. Hate to say this, Jeff, but we're going to have to change your name to Your outfits always look well put together. Wear and enjoy!
  3. I will try to get around to that soon!
  4. My wife always wore great heels - mostly because I bought most of them for Unfortunately, about 7-8 years ago she began having foot problems. Three different foot surgeries that didn't help, and a spinal issue as well, heels are very much a thing of the past. Can't even wear a decent looking pair of flats or very low heels anymore. Heart-breaking it is.....
  5. Happy, I am not a big fan of the florals for some reason. Have some a few I like, but mainly find that, to my eye, it seems to distract one from the shape of the shoes to looking at the pattern. Goofy, I guess, but that's me! I do like many of those with the thinner straps - personally though, I've had quite enough of the gladiator style however, that just seems like it won't go away. And the single high ankle strap with the single tor strap is also getting a bit worn out in my eye. In the end, however, you are mostly correct - I do tend to like pump styles more than most others. I have in the past had a pair of these from Aerosoles, though mine were black. I did enjoy them - easy to walk in but have the feminin touch I seek.
  6. Here is my latest purchase. Nine West Hedonna in size 11. Bought them at K & G Superstore for $35.99. Tried them on in store and while the 11s are snug, I think will will give some, and they stay on my feet nicely, which has been a probelm for me as of late, especially if I go to a 12. Heel is right at 4" in the size 11s.
  7. Hey HiH. Is that the store on Milwaukee near North Ave? I haven;t been there - will need to try it some time. I'm guessing, however, that 11 is as large as they carry....sometimes I can squeeze into an 11, such as those I am about to post.
  8. Just my personal point of view, but for me, for wedges to look good, the upper has to be very feminine. The pumps above are a great example - a very feminine cut on the upper balances the bulk of the wedge. When the upper gets overly bulky looking i.e. thick, heavy looking straps or a very bulky looking pump style, or a wedge on a boot, the wedge style loses it's appeal for me. For a long time a wouldn't even consider a wedge, but I have over time purchased probably four pairs - but again, I guess I would say "dainty" looking uppers to balance the heaviness of the wedge. Just sayin'
  9. It is all what appeals to you personally. I'm not much of a platform fan, but I will say it depends on the style of the shoes. That said, anything over 1/2" to maybe max 1", I find unappealing. I recall as a kid seeing a few women that likely had a leg shorter than the other, so one shoe would have a big, thick sole to make up for the short leg. So I relate platforms with corrective shoes. All that said, I have bought a couple of pairs with platform soles. I have trouble walking in them, as because the sole doesn't bend, the slip off at the heel. Again, it just depends on what you like - and you should wear what you like!
  10. Been a while Lime! Glad to see you still like the classic styles! Nice looking shoes. The cut on the BCBG heels is quite nice.
  11. All quite nice, but for some reason I've always had a thing for mary janes in black patent. Love those.
  12. At 66, about 4" is my absolute max, but I am much more comfortable, and walk much better, in 3-3.5" heels. As is the case for most women, I'll leave the higher heels for the younder folks...
  13. Great look Henri! Nice classic pumps, and that skirt is really cute! Looks good on you!
  14. I think many have forgotten that Jura indicated that he would need at least a size 12 or 13. Unless things have changed, you won't find a size 12 in nearly any DSW - maybe on the sale rack where someone bought a 12 on line and returned them to the store. And places like Dillards, Saks off 5th,and Bloomingdales Outlet, I've never seen a size 12 in any of those. So while they might be fun to walk through, chances of finding a size he can wear would be pretty slim.
