  1. I recently wore this exact outfit to the eye doctor, a diminutive but stylish woman, who couldn't be over 5 feet in height. She said, "Oh you shouldn't wear heels around me. I tell my 5'10" husband to always wear flats!" The comment made me wonder what her husband's non-flats were exactly. These are inexpensive boots from Forever 21., but fun for a lark.
  2. Another freestyle fashion contribution. I've worn these out and about with some frequency.
  3. I saw the pics. You pulled it off. Out of curiosity, how tall are you? How old are you?
  4. Here's a freestyle fashion contribution of the sort that I think @kneehighs was asking for when he started this thread years ago.
  5. It's been about 10 years since I've posted a picture to HHPlace. I've read and rarely made a comment, but for some reason I decided to shoot some photos. I found my old thread. But it's so old, it's been closed to comments. I don't any of those shoes anymore. I tend to change them out as fashion and my tastes progress. I bought some Jessica Simpson pumps at Nordstrom recently and wore them a number of places, including breakfast and lunch a couple fast casual restaurants and shopping at the mall between. Went into Dillards department store and checked out the shoe department. No comments from anybody this time and hardly any notice at all. I think that if your clothes are fashionably appropriate, you don't really look unnatural, despite the incongruity. I think that may account for the lack of notice and comments. As I was exciting the restaurant, I glanced at my reflection in the window as I strode to my car, much like the pose here.
  6. I agree with Kneehigh's thoughts. I'm not sure if Syro's trend has reached Gladwell's tipping point, but their offerings are indicative of a general direction. I find their products progressively fashion forward, which generally don't appeal to a wide audience, regardless of where they fall on a feminine/masculine spectrum. I think it's a nice trend in any case.
  7. Freestyle75, I encourage you to start your own thread or blog, I really like your taste. Too few here have a real fashion sense. It's been years since I've posted (photos particularly--and now very dated) but I still read, and you are my favorite. The crossing walk story was fun. Maybe you should have gone to the restaurant.
  8. Is this them? http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/women/boots/ankle-boots/97386105-maccallum/97
  9. What I find interesting, Kneehighs, is the attribution to the advertising industry, of which I'm a part: The rise of consumerism directed at children making them "the subjects of persuasive and sophisticated advertising that tends to reinforce social conventions. So they think, for example, that what makes someone female is long hair and a dress." Conventions become standardized when media is ubiquitous. Some independent thinking, outside conventional media norms, by parents (and society) would help.
  10. A lot of Internet action on the personal essay of Pulitzer-prize-winning author Buzz Bissinger, who acknowledges in GQ a uncontrollable shopping addiction, spending astronomical amounts of money on fashion, particularly Gucci, particularly leather, including embracing his feminine side and buying 5 inch heel knee high boots. Interesting in part because he writes mostly about sports and authored "Friday Night Lights". A long story but a good read. Here's a quote: Some of the clothing is men's. Some is women's. I make no distinction. Men's fashion is catching up, with high-end retailers such as Gucci and Burberry and Versace finally honoring us. But women's fashion is still infinitely more interesting and has an unfair monopoly on feeling sexy, and if the clothing you wear makes you feel the way you want to feel, liberated and alive, then fucking wear it. http://www.gq.com/ne...?printable=true
  11. I checked out your tumblr. Well done. You are a little more selective than Lolla and I think it's better, actually. I have to admit I was surprised that near the bottom were 6 or 7 shots of me (mostly with numbers in the upper left hand corner). I don't mind, but they're 4 or 5 years old and I don't think I even own the pictured footwear any more. I've never quit reading HHPlace, but I've mostly quit posting. If I get real motivated, maybe I'll take some new photos and post them. Into fashion, like I am, I think I'm feeling that I don't want to be dated by such old photos!
  12. Those are nice. What brand are they?
  13. I think much of the discrepancy you describe between your self and the much older members of the forum can be mitigated by weight (addressed in another post). I'm over 60 years old, but I think I can pull off heels well. (Look at some of my older posts.)
