Boots for Big Calves

Manolo says, the Plumcake, at the Manolo for the Big Girl blog, has the definitive discussion about purchasing the boots for the girls with the big calves.

Of the course, the Manolo also has to link to this piece simply so that you may read this paragraph…

It is the mantra of the Manolo Blogs that instead of buying cheap footwear made with deplorable lack of attention to detail by whatever 8-year old Bangladeshi child was cuffed to that particular table, one must save up for the superfantastic shoes, lovingly made by handsome gruff men named Aldo who drive cool Italian scooters and get 90 minute lunch breaks.

So true. So true.

    I learned last week that J. Crew boots come in the extended calf, and immediately ran out to buy my very own pair:

    They are the first pair of knee-high boots to fit me perfectly.

    Thanks, Jora, for the tip. Those are very handsome, classic boots with a reasonable heel.
