Get The Boot With River Island

riverisland
This is an honest review. I was gifted these boots from River Island.

riverisland

I was recently contacted by someone from River Island to check out their products. I had never shopped there before because they used to only carry straight sizes and I am plus sized. A while ago the British retailer introduced plus sizes to their product line. They come in sizes 14-24, and are actually really cute. That isn’t much of a surprise considering how fashionable the straight size line is.

Payless Has Some Cute Wide Calf Boots

wide calf boots
Payless has some really great wide calf boots this year. I saw a few options that were either flat, heeled, or wedged. I think that is great because it adds variety to a woman’s wardrobe. My favorite boot is the Tasha Tall Boot. It comes in cognac and black. It is a simple flat boot with a wide calf. It comes in regular sizes too, but I need the boot to be wide calf for it to fit. With the extended calf sizes that Payless has, these boots just might be the ones that I buy. Boot shoe sizes go up to a size 13 for women at Payless, and the calf sizes range from 16.4 inches to 19 inches. Measure the full circumference of your foot to see what you need. I am glad that Payless has a few options because this is something that the industry needs to work on. It used to be so hard to find wide calf boots. Then the few options that were available were too expensive. I’m glad Payless is here with variety and affordability.

Shoe of the Week- Cute and Fashionable Winter Boots

winter boots
Winter boots are no longer ugly. Many brands make some cute and fashionable winter boots. Most of the boots featured below don’t even look like the regular chunky looking winter boots, and most of them are either winterproof, weatherproof, or waterproof. That is really great considering winter has come early and strong, and you know you need to get yourself a pair of boots before the next snow.

Shoe of the Week- Extreme Ankle Boots To Fall For!

Boots

Boots

I love the classic look of Timberland boots in the fall, but these boots from Boohoo are even better. They come in the classic sand and a go with everything black. The platform is super serious and at $70 will give an edge above all the basics running around. This show would look really hot with some rolled up jeans like these from Boohoo’s plus line. Super bad ass. Photo from Boohoo.com.

Shoe of the Week- Wide Calf Boots That Actually Fit From DSW

Wide Calf Boots

Wide Calf Boots

I recently got some wide calf boots from DSW that actually fit my calf muscles. Color me surprised. When I see a boot labeled wide calf in the store, they don’t usually fit.  I get really skeptical when I see the label on boots because of that. However… When I went to DSW there were a ton of boots to pick from. Some fit and some didn’t, but the ones I bought look fantastic.

Shoe of the Week Chinese Laundry Wide Calf Over The Knee Boot

wide calf over the knee boots

I love a good wide calf over the knee boot. I have wide calves, so something cute that comes wide and over the knee is something I am always looking for when I go boot shopping. I still have a black pair from Torrid that I got years ago when I was in college. I found a pair that comes in Cognac and Black (both leather) from Nordstrom that is on sale right now! They were originally $99.95, but now they are $66.96! That is a steal you guys!!!! They come in sizes 6.5 to 11. Yes you read that correct. Nordstrom does a good job of carrying hard to find sizes.

Buy the Chinese Laundry ‘Spring Street’ Boot (Wide Calf) Womens now, because Nordstrom will probably sell out of this cute wide calf over the knee boot fast because a style like this in this many sizes is rare. Photos from Nordstrom.

Shoe of the Week-Clovia Desert Boot

The Clovia desert boot from Shoedazzle is the perfect bootie to ease your transition into boot season because it is finally that time of year where you can wear boots and booties without looking cray cray.  The VIP price is $38.50 and the regular price is $48.95. Not bad for a classic boot that comes in nude/tan, grey, and teal. There are so many ways to wear this boot, which is why I think desert boots have been a fall favorite for so long.  You can wear these shoes with skirts and dresses. Don’t forget how great these booties look with jeans and cords!  You can’t go wrong with these boots. Photo from Shoedazzle.

Shoe of the Week- Four Ankle Boots From Forever 21

Forever 21 Ankle Boots 21

I love ankle boots, and these four from Forever 21 are perfect. I used to hate them, but the past two seasons have seen designers taking ankle boots to new heights. You have the hiking ankle, the moto ankle, the combat ankle, and the ankle boot with cut-outs! I am still trying to find the perfect ankle boots with cut-outs because that is a style I think I will be trying this fall. I like how you can wear different color socks with them.

Ankle boots are great for people like me who have big calf muscles. Even though they have a larger selection of wide-calf boots now, they tend to be a bit on the pricey side. With ankle boots, I can still wear cute boots and not have to worry about how they fit or if my jeans are bunching up in the boot’s leg. These four ankle boots from Forever 21 are super affordable and inline with this fall’s boot trends! Check them out!

This week’s shoe of the week is actually two different pairs of snow boots from Payless. The Women’s Powder Snow Boot was $59.99, but now costs $49.99. The Women’s Summit Boot is $59.99. The Women’s Powder Snow Boot comes in grey or white, and has a very youthful appearance. The Women’s Summit Boot is more classic and comes in grey or black.

Lane Bryant’s Zip & Buckle Wide Calf Boot is the perfect plus size boot. I am so glad that companies are starting to make cuter wide calf boots because I have a wide calf. The struggle to find cute boots that fit is real, and it sucks. Luckily for me, Lane Bryant has some options. They have about five wide calf boots on their website right now and they are all priced at $79.95. Get you a piece. Photo from Lane Bryant.

If you know me, then you know I am a fan of the desert boot. Well… Old Navy created three different styles of the desert boot and mixed it with several different colors at a very affordable price. Each version costs  $36.94, but the wedge is on sale online for $34.00 this week. If I were you, I would scoop up all three as soon as possible. Images from Old Navy.

 

Trend Report: Over-the-Knee Boots

Photo Credit

A fringe fashion trend that has been rapidly gaining popularity the past few seasons have been over-the-knee boots. From the runways of Prada to the sidewalks of New York, this is one fashion look that will get you some serious attention because of the fierce factor and leg-lengthening properties.

While even knee-high boots can be a nightmare for your average girl to fit, there are a few tricks that will help you find the perfect OTK boot for you.

It’s Over-the-Knee, not Over-the-Top

Just an inch or two over the knee will do the trick to get the look, and less leg means fewer areas to fit (or not fit).

Soften with Suede

Suede stretches more than leather for those girls with thicker legs, and for those on the slimmer side, it looks delightful as a slouchy fit. It also tones down the look overall for a softer vibe.

Go Convertible

Try a convertible boot that folds up or down. These often use slits or elastic panels to be able to fold down over the calf, so when pulled up it gives more wiggle room for the fit around the thigh.  Also that means that when the trend fades out, you can just fold them down and rock those boots next season as well.

Now that you’ve found the perfect fit, what do you wear it with?

Are you the sporty type? Try a flat cognac boot with your favorite skinny jeans  and a boyfriend cardigan.

Sporty

Diva rocker? Pull on a thigh high black leather boot with a flirty skirt and denim jacket, and don’t forget the red lipstick.

Sophisticated classic? A kitten heel boot with opaque stockings and a sheath dress should do the trick.

Lovelyish Style Challenge

Hey Everyone! Lovelyish, the lovely website that syndicates some of my blog posts, ask a few of their bloggers to do a Style Challenge, and I stepped up to the plate! For the first challenge they wanted me to style an outfit around my favorite fall boots. I am so glad they waited until October for this because it was 90 degrees less than 10 days ago, but it was getting pretty chilly today. I love this Steve Madden boots because they are very versatile, and wear them with jeans since they are wide enough for my big post dance calf muscles.

For this challenge I wore:
An Old Navy leopard print sweater
Walmart white t-shirt
Old Navy black tank top
Old Navy Diva jeans
Steve Madden ‘Intyce’ boots
