The fattened calves–an update

So remember my post begging for help on “wide-calf” tall boots?  Well, I took your advice and went to DSW.

I found a pair that actually fit and definitely didn’t break the bank:

It likely helps that they slouch a bit, but, hey, I am officially trendy now.  I got these in black, but they look weird online. I promise they are just black.

I also found a pair of heeled ones at TJ Maxx:

They are also sold at Macy’s for $130, but I got them for $85. I love a deal.

I also got ankle boots from Zappos, but don’t think I should press my trendy luck by wearing skinny jeans with the ankle boots. Ask me again in about 2 years from now. When the trend is dying, I am sure I will be picking it up.

And if you happen to be in the market for slippers, I found the cutest ones ever from the Loft.

I may have a shoe problem.  Don’t tell Tommy.

I just ordered a pair of boots today! What kind of ankle boots did you get? I'm looking for a pair I can wear to work with my slacks.

LOVE the boots! Hell yes on the great deal, too! :) And those slippers are awesome! I've been kinda obsessed with slippers this year. I kinda want to get them for everyone. I'm really not kidding. When Loft has one of their good 40% sales, I should totally order some! :)
