It could also be that I have not been out enough. Maybe 15 - 20 times total. Only 4 - 6 different places.

The last denim skirt I posted was bought on BC Ferries when coming back from Vancouver Island. I was walking around in the gift shop on the ship and what luck to find a great skirt. It is made by Jag Jeans and was expensive but I did not care. One of the best skirts I have owned.

Great outfits - FF. Just the sort of thing I'd like to recreate for a New England Spring or fall.

I have a couple of challenges - currently carrying too much weight for such a look (beer belly on show - but I have a 15 week plan to drop at least 20lbs). The other problem I have is shoe size - I run a 45 Euro which makes it difficult to get boots easily / relatively cheaply. I did get a pair of 44's off eBay from a Chinese distributor. They are great for indoors dress-me-up but they are not leather and are a touch too small so I don't think they would be comfortable out on the road.

Hi FT444. Thank you for the compliment! I too have the same issues as you(I am sucking in, lol). I would feel good losing 20 odd lbs as well! The tights and a stretchy skirt helps give a thinner look. As for the boots the leather does stretch and shape to your foot so they are the only ones I buy. I also put leather softener/conditioner to help but they are designed for a more narrow foot so a little discomfort at first but now mine fit like gloves. I can go all day in them. The boots are ecco and Naturalizer. Check their website and see if that helps.

I wore a checkered blue collard shirt with a coral sweater. Works well with the blue denim (yes that skirt again....I just love it!) Black tights with black boots. It is like a "business casual" look.

I enjoy wearing this out.

This look is a good investment :mrgreen:

Good brands too! The tan boots are Naturalizer and my black ones are Ecco. I have even found Ralph Lauren boots there for $130.


Hey Feeling Freedom - looks like Winners is part of the Marshalls / TJX group. Any idea what size they go up to in boots? I've tried the website but it doesn't look like you can search their inventory. I'm working in Vancouver 10-12 Dec - I'll look out for you :-)

The only women's footwear I've bought were size 12W (W means wide) from Penningtons, which is a Canadian retailer marketing to plus size women. That's about an 11 in men's sizes, (or 44 or 45 in Euro men's sizes). Tending to the tight side has so far been manageable by wearing only light hosiery...often lately just tights or pantihose. One of the boots is lace-up, which also makes it possible to adjust the tightness somewhat. Shopping the domestic women's plus-size retailers seems the best bet so far, since larger footwear tends to not be store stock, making returns policies paramount. Down in the USA, Torrid looks like an interesting women's plus-size retailer, with a much larger range of footwear products than I've found so far in Canada.

It really shows the difference in physiology. At women's plus-size shops I don't even come close to the largest offerings they have, except in footwear where frequently my size is the very largest they have. I suspect the same is true of gloves.

Right. In US sizes I wear a men's 10.5, which would usually be a women's 12, except that with men's size I wear fairly heavy socks while with women's it's much thinner tights, so I buy women's 11.

I can't imagine wearing men's athletic socks with a nice pair of 3" heels but there's no accounting for taste.
