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

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

A little fashion week peek

A slow Friday means I've been sneaking peeks at some of the Spring 2009 RTW collections over at Style.com. I am not a big trend-follower myself but I am a fashion fan so I like to at least know what's going on. I'm seeing lots of bright jeweltones and loud prints, a big 80s influence in several collections - jumpsuits, fanny packs, belts, parachute pants, parkas and anoraks.  I hated what a few designers I normally like did to the models' heads (I'm looking at you Diane von Furstenburg and Continue Reading

Fat Fashion Thursday – Igigi Dress Review!

Well, I'm bummed! Let me elaborate. My friend Nicole (who is also shooting our wedding) took some photos of me in my kitchen for a fashion assignment, sort of a retro meets edgy thing, and I was all set to give you a real life "I bought these clothes and here's what I think" review. But now! The dress is no longer being sold on Igigi's site! What a bummer! It was on there mere weeks ago! So, I'll still review the dress, but it's really cruel of me to do so. Because it's fabulous and also you Continue Reading
