This video is a couple of years old, but I love it so much. Goes to show there is no need to be a size 6 to wear gorgeous clothes and look great in them.
I love boots, especially, the really high boots with the stiletto heels and I can finally wedge my Fred Flintstone wide feet into a pair. I have just discovered WIDEWIDTHS.COM.
Here is where they differ in their approach to finding the right size for us:
"We can understand that you might be hesitant to place an order online since you do not know how a boot will fit you once it arrives, but we have done extensive work to try to alleviate consumer concerns about their boots not fitting them. By reading the information on how to measure your calf, you can find your calf size category and look at the styles that you like. Since each foot size is listed with its corresponding calf size, this makes it very simple to make sure that you are getting the correct calf size and it greatly reduces the chance that you may need to return your boots."
I'm just learning slideshows, etc., and this one looks really strange (below). Sorry...learning curve. Kind of looks strangely disembodied. Oh well, the boots are really great though, aren't they?
and....if you have any money left over, please feel free to buy me something. I went and splurged on those green earrings I wanted and now I can't buy one more thing. Crap! There is such a great deal at Bloomingdale's (both online and in the store) and today is the last day!

THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST: CHECK THEM OUT!
Well, Tara Lynn continues to ratch up her modeling credits in the plus-size modeling corners. While I really do not, in any way, consider her size 16 exactly a plus-size, it is a step in the right direction.
Here are some stunning looks of her for LaRedoubte catalogue.
I've always believed that in plus size clothing, the neckline is one of the most important considerations. This really proves the point.
Plus, I would do just about anything for that beautiful coral (pinkish-red) dress. Simply gorgeous!
I'd like to take a moment out of my busy day to discuss bangs. You know, that fringe at the front of your head that you get shaped or cut and actually looks good for about 8 hours until you try to replicate it yourself?
I have a friend (let's call her Melanie). I would venture to say that I have known her many years and under a myriad of circumstances and I have never seen her without her bangs at exactly the same length...sort of just grazing her eyebrows. I mean, does she have some hideous gash on her forehead or something? I don't get it. Plus, she's always patting them just so. Like she's making sure a big wind hasn't come up without her noticing and blown those perfectly set bangs up. I have this vision of her putting that old fashioned pink tape that ladies used to wear to bed to hold their bangs and those funny curls on the side of their heads. Anyhoo...trying to move on...
So, I've mentioned that I have moved to the Southwest after living in Chicago, New York, and other fairly large cities and I see a trend here that I don't really see other places: THE BULLET! Yes, folks, I have just made up the word so don't even try to steal it from me. I wonder how you use that little baby tm sign ...you know, trademarked? Well, until I figure it out, that name is MINE! MINE! MINE!
Sorry, I got sidelined by my genius. Anyhoo...in the Southwest, there is a style whereby woman above a certain age (35) have this really long hair in the back. I mean, it's past their asses and if you saw them from the back, you would think...now that's a babe.
Anyhoo...the problem comes in with the fact that their bangs are seriously farked up. I am not exaggerating. It's this bowl cut that kind of goes too far into the actual sides of the hair. Hence, the "bullett". Their bangs are combined to create a mullett sort of look. They look like they take out their biggest curling iron and put all their bangs in at once and bam!! fini!! The rest of the hair is just there straight as straw. WTH? I don't get it.
I admit that I am by no means a walking fashion statement, but come on, ladies, you can do better than that. I find myself looking at that hair from all angles and still not figuring it out. Is it the party in the back and business in the front that entices you to that style?
Please, someone help me with this look. It has bothered me no end and I'd rather think about things like world peace, etc. So anyone????
(OK, got a little excited here. Still a great sale going on though.)
Can you believe this? Actually yes...because I just read the fine print. Apparently the 12 buck stuff is only the brands: Kronos, IQ Derma and RAW Natural Beauty.
However, that's still a really good savings and there are other sales there.
Whew! Almost went into cardiac arrest, thinking of all the $12.00 items I was going to get.
