I know these are not what was meant by Foster the People in the song, but it makes for a good enough title, no?

I tried a pair of these babies on this evening, just because...because they were there, in my hard-to-find size 12, and what the heck, it's my birthday. Plus who doesn't love a pair of red shoes?
Also, I wanted to see what the world looked like when you're 6'8". Because that's how tall I am in these shoes.
No, I am not making that up.
So I did not buy them, because who wants to duck for doorways, but it was fun. I felt like I was on stilts. I had to hold onto my husband's shoulders to walk to the mirror. You know what though? Heels do wonders for your legs, even if you tend toward cankles. They were fairly comfortable too.
I am going back to get these boots though. I probably need a pair of skinny jeans to make them work, which is always a hassle to find because, well, see above.

But it occurs to me that they don't have to be exactly long enough inside boots because who will know, right? Right.
One has to think creatively when it comes to clothing conundrums. Speaking of which, here's a funny twist on sizes. I could not find a pair of capris to fit me in the stores (too short), so while I was at Goodwill, I thought I'd try on regular pants and then maybe alter them to capris.
Surprisingly, what fit the best in the waist and hips was a pair of Old Navy petite slacks! Go figure. So I cut off a few inches and re-hemmed them to capri length (about a 26-1/2 inch inseam for me), and they fit like a dream. I have another pair of brand new Lands End pants that I will do the same with. They were also $3.99 at Goodwill. Can't beat that!
