After much debate, I ended up choosing a draped navy sheath (comes with a tie belt) that fits me decently with some room to give. As for the stripes component…I’m making the belt count : )
These boots were an eBay find from several years ago. We know older or vintage clothing runs small, but did you know the same goes for shoes? I know many women aren’t ok with pre-owned shoes, but there are some online that are unworn, or barely worn in pristine condition. These $30 boots are leather, size 6, made in Italy, with a 13″ calf circumference and a 14″ shaft height. Almost perfect. They hit smack at my knee bend, which is my pet peeve, so I wear them cuffed.
I’m still on the hunt for classic boots with the perfect fit. Readers and fellow bloggers – please help make your short-legged friend’s boot dreams come true by sharing any relevant finds this season. Wanted: 13″ tall, 13″ or less calf circumference boots with an almond toe, either flat riding style or with a simple ~3.5″ heel. Brown or black. I have heard tales of boot alterations both in shaft height as well as width, but I’m hesitant. I know they run very steep (maybe $80+) with no guarantee of success.
