Wide calf leather boots – Frye Veronica Slouch

close up of the Frye Veronica Slouch dark brown leather boots

I have searched for well-made, casual, stylish leather boots that would fit my wide calves for years. Literally YEARS! Wide calf boots are easy to find, but they are usually made of cheap leather (or worse, plastic/PVC), have elastic inserts that look terrible and are visible from the outside, or are just not stylish or look too dressy. Girls with wide or muscular calves, search for legit boots no longer. The Frye Veronica Slouch boots are gorgeous, exactly the style I was looking for, and Continue Reading

Products I love: Envirosax bags (plus a giveaway!)

What I’m wearing


It has been a good, long while (over two years!) since I've photographed what I was wearing or contributed to any of the various fashion groups on flickr, livejournal or elsewhere. There are lots of reasons why - I got busy, I was "working on" other personal stuff, I was hating my job and got really uninspired in general. I spent a lot of time going straight from work to the gym and then changing into my pajamas. Then I did a really dumb thing and sold a ton of clothes I loved that were only Continue Reading

Monday Flickr Favorites

I had a really productive meeting with the 7 Cities Crafters yesterday. I'm very excited for Handmade Parade 2009, our big ol' holiday craft show. I think it's going to be a bigtime hit and I have so many people who want to help make it so. Watch for more details coming soon. This week is gonna be a whirlwind, I am seeing No Doubt with Paramore (I'm a total fangirl, don't even care) on Wednesday night, and then my show (and Jimmy's new band's first appearance) is on Thursday. Mixed in between Continue Reading
