On Saturday, Sveta and I drove to the US for an NAS shopping extravaganza. Well, it was an extravaganza for me. For her it was a more restrained affair, but still successful. What can I say? I plead "first NAS" and hope you will all understand.
Pics 1 and 2: My boxes in the Customer Service area!
Munro Ann: Did not like the way this boot looked or felt on me at all, and it was too tall in the shaft. Angie said that the shaft could be cut down, but I didn't care for the boot.
It's tough to see in the image but that bagging around the ankle is due to the boot's height. There is just too much for me to pull it up properly.
Please excuse my wrinkly elephant knees. I swear they don't usually look quite that awful!
Flattering footwear that fits is a real issue for me, far more than I ever fully understood. Now I understand more why booties posed such a challenge for me -- and yet at the same time are my best friend. From a figure flattery point of view, anyone with calves as short (objectively) AND as short proportionately as mine is going to run into trouble with a short horizontal line across the leg. No wonder I feared them and still worry that they are "stumpifying."
At the same time, booties are pretty much the only footwear I can easily buy. I can't wear low vamp shoes or even high vamp flats that don't lace because they come off my feet. (Tried on slipper flats the other day -- no luck. Can't wear them.) And I can't find tall boots to fit my short but not wide calves.
Oh well. The journey continues.
Apologies for the length - hope you did not read if it was not pertinent to you!
