my 2021 adventures


Recommended Posts

i'm waiting for things to warm up around here and i'm also waiting for the city to open up having been closed by this virus for the past several months.  while waiting, i've been stewing over the so called cobblers in this town and how none of these old geezers want to repair my 7.5 inch heels!  i thought in this time of weirdness they'd be glad to see anyone walk in their old dusty doors and into their cobwebbed shops, ready to take my money.  but i always get the same thing from these old and grey shoe guys, they can't fix them because of whatever. 

so!  i'm going to try it myself.  i have my white 7.5 inch heels: nothing wrong with the heel and platform of course.  it is the upper that is way far gone and totally unwearable.  absolutely worn out from miles of amazing outings and adventures.  and i can hear some of you saying why not buy a new pair?  the ones i'm fussing about are Highest Heel brand, they fit me perfectly, i love them, they're my go to pair, and Highest Heel is no longer making them.  

anyway i've heard enough from these dusty old cobblers that i started thinking yes, why would i go to you when you've given me enough info about why you can't do them.  

the plan is to take apart my spare pair of double buckle beauties which are in mint condition, on the old FOH 6 inch heel (which i never wear anymore) and put those on my white 7.5 inch heels.

hmmm...  i wonder if this would actually work!

photo from ages ago:  the 7.5 inch heels i'm talking about next to my spare pair of double buckle beauties at right.  FOH sling backs at bottom.  gigantic Pleaser brand sling backs on 8 inch heels at left.  

i'll let you know how this exercise goes...

Saturday here in SC was an absolutely gorgeous early spring day with Temperatures In the middle 80’s (27C).  And, I had to go to the grocery store to replenish my food stock.  With the weather being so nice, I dressed wearing a light blue short sleeved shirt, dark blue docker trousers and a pair of tan ankle boots with 4.5” wedge heels.  I spent around 45 minutes walking up and down the aisle checking things off my list as I put them into my shopping cart.  Once I had everything on my list, I made my way to check out line  to pay for my purchases.  While standing in line, waiting to unload my cart, the guy waiting behind me commented that he really liked my shoes.  I turned around and hiked up my pants leg so he could see them.  This particular pair are fairly new since I bought them on sale in the middle of January.  They are ankle boots, or booties, single sole, light tan, with 4.5” wedge heels and round toes. He took a good long, look at them and asked if they were comfortable and did i ever get any bad comments while wearing them.  I explained that I had been wearing girls shoes and heels in public for years and, in past years, I did get a few but these days it seems like everyone is too preoccupied, concentrating on their own business to notice what other people are doing.  I also said they were very comfortable and answered several more questions on why and where I bought them. As I pushed my cart into position to check out, he said that he was tempted to try a pair and was going to look up the website to see if they had his size in stock.  I paid for my groceries,  wished him luck and assured him that he would enjoy wearing them once he got started.  I made one more stop I’m my way home at my favorite Barbecue restaurant to pick up a pork plate (shredded bbq pork, rice and hash, cold slaw, potato salad, to take home.

Being mentally comfortable in your own mind is the key to wearing heels in public.

at last we have some spring like weather!  a blaze of sunshine and mild climes!  not quite high heel sandal weather but definitely boot wearing weather as the snow is all gone, the sidewalks are clear.  i'm taking my super sexy Cupid boots for a spin today and i have a gal pal to go with!

i hope to snap a few pictures while we're out and about!  

as for the 7.5 inch Highest Heel rebuilds:  they're coming along.  it's interesting to see the insides of those shoes, a lot of glue and 4 staples...

dig in your heels!  and GO!  

(i'm out the door: wish me luck!)

oh my goodness it never gets old: wearing 6 inch heels and super tight jeans and watching folks stop, gawk, stare, nudge who they're with and point, and so on.

I never notice that sort of thing when I am out. However , My ex-wife would see people doing that and come up on the high side of hostile . It never bothered me . Guess I just preferred the attention .  Mike

update on the shoe rebuild: i have the 7.5's torn down to the heel and platform, no footbed and no vamp or ankle straps.  i hate to do it but i'm going to tear down my white 6 inch double buckle beauties, i never wear them anymore anyway, and hopefully put the footbed and the ankle straps from those onto the 7.5 inch heel.  bought the clamps and the super heavy duty "shoe goo" glue.  now all i need is some spare time over the weekend to put these 2 things together and hopefully!  

(i still can't believe these lame old men cobblers in this town, not willing to take my money... )

Do you truly believe it will work? Glue may initially stay put sooner or later it will give out with wear. Last thing you need to be walking along and they fall apart in last place you want.

The butterflies you get do you believe the root cause is because of some sense of guilt?

Let me explain, when i wear something provocative in public such as thin sheer colorful leggings in white,  tangerine orange,  or tiny swimsuit at a pool i never had frequented. Those butterflies or anxiety you feel, heart rate beats faster, skin is more flushed, cold sweat overwhelms my body, limbs become numb. I attribute to the unknown how people around me will react observing them as they towards me.   

W6ish as me you very well know what we are doing when styling outfit in public with our body type. There is no mistaking what we are showing off clearly as one can without being arrested...... Sometimes  i feel bit ashamed going to far with my outfit for people to observe and afraid to be called out on it as indecent, vulgar and very well know what we are trying to achieve  in shock value. While certainly i can attribute my attitude being jaded to style i wear so often. Only  because my tolerance has been desensitized while others maybe initially shocked never seen someone like me before.  While in truth i held back to some degree with the outfit just because of the very fact some find it all to much to absorb initially. People need to dip there toes in the pool to check the temperature before they dive head first. 

Like you told me before best to leave something to imagination for others to be intrigued about then showing it all leaving no mystery. Most gals will leave and try to stay away only because they may be jealous or i just bring to much attention to the table for their appetite. 

We all know there are people who enjoy to speak openly what they dislike and will confront us in meaningful way. The butterflies as you call it is the worry someone will take steps to speak there mind in negative way only so to shame us or be aware we ain't fooling anyone with our style and outfit what they believe we are trying to achieve. 

My biggest worry is find myself in middle of bad surroundings not because i initially  targeted but unforeseen circumstances where my style would be brought into question or not appropriate by less like minded people.

not sure if it is going to work.  but there is only one way to find out!  

and no sense of guilt!  when i get the butterflies it is the classic:  stage fright.  when you wear outfits like mine you know the gals are watching!  the super high heels is enough to get their attention but the super show all jeans is what knocks it out of the park!  (no pun intended!!!  ha ha!)

Your speaking to the choir i know super tight show all jeggings often do just that. Only you need to find the right audience. With this oppressive government health regulations not much you can do or go and be seen by the right gals.

i will agree that times are very strange right now.  no night club scenes in over a year!  and gosh how i miss flaunting my fun stuff!  so it has to be the one on one visits which are still a wild amusement for me but there is that show off in me that wants to get out!

beauty warm day in the city:  perfect for the "outfit".  i went for a lunch date with a gal i've known for many years.  while i was out there, on the streets in sauce mode, an older gal said to me:  are you wearing a "modesty pad"?  

i had no idea what she was going on about!  ha!

To better understand i guess you had on skinny jeans, short shorts or your spandex shorts. This  older gal may have misspoke. Often times people do the strangest things. They are jeopardy watchers giving the answer in a form of a question, which makes no sense. No doubt gals get tongue tied, when looking or wanting to comment on our appearance. Maybe gal felt  in her mind wow, this guy showing a lot of detail could use some type of cup or padding to soften the appearance with less detail. Smart woman often may pass by think it, but know the answer to the question. We like it the way it is, and to be modest isn't in our vocabulary or motivation to be seen publicly.

it was very amusing!  i didn't understand what the older gal was going on about but my gal pal soon brought me up to speed.  my gal pal then burst out laughing and said it was a good thing she wasn't right there to answer for me!

my gal pal though is such a sweetie.  she said: don't change a thing.

if you remember the story in my 2020 thread about the gal pal and i driving into the night to view the stars, the night we heard the...  "strange noise",  that gal would like it if we were to go again!  i nearly fell out of my shoes when she told she hadn't been out of the city to see the night sky since our last adventure.  anyway, with zero night club scenes happening, and no fun shows downtown, the high heel adventures for me are at an all time low.  any excuse to wear heels on the streets works for me.  so we're going to see about maybe tonight.  supposed to be rain tonight but very mild.  i'm going to wear those sassy shorts of mine with black nylons underneath and my super sexy Jessica Simpson 6 inch heels!

I too enjoy looking at the night sky, it is beautiful....  Two nights ago I was in the Mojave Desert in CA, very dark skies and the display was beautiful.
