thanks marcy, but not true. I put pounds on after my recent bike accisent before my trip and eating three meals a day, partying with friends and living with a guy who must have his apero and digestif when there, has caused my clothes to be too tight, and now-can no longer afford new clothes, so am on the diet route(sigh)

a P.S. when I was a young women in my 20s, hi -heel shoes, especially the mule styles(slip on to you,so interested ,GSteed) Were called by the fashion press, F*** Me shoes. Times have changed, as before you couldn't wear a bra unless you wanted comments, no it's fashionable. I bought a see-through dress, and have never worn it becaus I couldn't find a slip to go under it(no lace, do dats)

Oh, Mimi (and Scarlett),
Dieting is no fun, but unfortunately sometimes necessary- Darn!

I'm becoming acquainted with all the wonderful? low-carb foods so that I'll be able to go shopping in Paris and fit into some of the clothes they sell for those teeny-tiny Parisiennes!

I do have some great high-heeled, pointy-toed shoes to wear with my jeans. (They're actually pretty comfortable if you don't have to walk TOO far.)

Message: By the way, I was telling some friends (actually, our entire church, it is a tiny one of about 40 people and each Sunday 20 or so of us go out to lunch after HC)

What is HC? High colonic? What kind of church is this, anyway?

Blue Jeans and High Heels : Yes.
Unless there is excessive walking to be done that night - in the case of pub crawls - which leads to excessive complaints when someone's "dogs are barking". For this, we recommend appplying moleskin prior to beginning the night out.

No, wouldn't be Holy Communion, you're supposed to wait until services end. Maybe High Church?

Hey GSteed, how much collected on that bet? High heels yay or nay?

Hmmm, REX, it's a way of cleaning out your bowels. We do not have stupid written on our foreheads, though some of you more 'educated"creature think so

Clunky type platform heels or high heeled boots work well for jeans, but I think the traditional high heels look tacky . . . even if the models are wearing them in magazines. I don't like traditional stiletto type heals myself, so I could be biased. Iam 5'2, so I always wear shoes with a bit of a heal, but traditional heals hurt my feet, so I stick to platforms.

Yes, HC is Holy Communion. That is our principal service in the Episcopal Church. (Some call it Holy Eucharist, and really high churches still call it the Mass.) Ours begins at 10 a.m., gets out about 11:45, then we're off to play our favorite game: Beat The Baptists! The other Protestant denominations don't get out until after 12 noon, so our group is always the first at the restaurant to reserve the long table. (Small town, one nice restaurant open Sundays, doesn't take much to amuse us!)

I agree with lovelabs - boots with a heel, or platforms, etc - great. just high heeled pumps, stilettos, etc. for the sake of having "leaner lines" or standing a little taller- ecch.

Gosh I have to disagree with the chunky-heel brigade. Long, almost to the ground boot-cut or flared jeans with a sexy open-toed stiletto in summer and a little silky top is gorgeous. For cooler weather substitute stiletto boots or a pump, with a little jacket over the top.... it's almost become a kind of uniform.
But the jeans can't be the "mom" type (high-waisted and tapered legs) and you can't be chunky yourself.
The same jeans are nice also with a little ballet flat, or good loafer (this is classic), or colorful trainer... not the big white runners you'd wear to aerobics.
Oh god... I sound like m_k.

How can one walk in stilettos? The very thought makes me cringe from the blisters I will most likely acquire!

I know the "pointy" shoe look is in, but for those of us with wide feet (not a wide butt!), they are impossible to wear.

I have always marveled at the Italian women's ability to navigate the cobblestone street in stilettos. On our most recent trip, in Verona, we saw two young women (maybe high school) practicing this skill, holding each others' hands like girls at a roller rink. A few days later in Vicenza, this beautiful, professionally dressed woman stepped right out of her shoe which had gotten wedged between two stones in the road! She laughed about it. We did, too, but we waited until she was out of earshot. :-"
