The fattened calves
For those of you who have never seen me in person, I am a bit on the short side. 5’0” to be exact. I have never bought the tall boots that all the trendy people wear. One, because I am not that trendy and didn’t know how they would look on me. Two, because I have the HUGEST calves known to man.
Case in point, this weekend my sister talked me into buying my first pair of skinny jeans (I told you I am not trendy) and I wanted to get a pair of the tall boots to tuck them into. I go to Nordstrom and pick out boots with the biggest calf area thinking that I have just had bad luck in the past. Yeah, it’s not so much bad luck as it is having the biggest calves known to man. (There might have been blushing and humiliation when I had to tell the poor guy helping me that there was no way I could get those puppies to zip. But I am over it now. Kind of.)
So anyway, I need your help – are any of these “wide calf” boots from Zappos cute? (You really minimize your selection when you search for wide calf. Couldn’t they call it something more flattering? Like not so petite opening?)
Okay and that is pretty much it. I am not kidding. Unless I want to spend several hundred dollars. I am thinking $150 or less. Is that asking too much? (That is not a rhetorical question.)
I am already thinking of what tall boots would mean – leggings, more skinny jeans, the ability to actually wear skirts and dresses in the winter. Sigh. Any help would be appreciated!
