1. Ooh! A17161 oxford clog from Sophya! Love it.
2. Those Cosimas are still devastating. Good purchase.


Tea: I wanted to post Before and After shots of the Cosima Tall boots to show what a great job the cobbler did making them fit my calves perfectly. But even though they were loose when I got them, I couldn't find a Before picture that looked "before" enough. I'm thinking I'll have another boot taken in, and that one I'll be sure to document properly.

Arrrrgh, Lindsey! Curse your long slender calves! I cannot wear tall boots, with my muscular calves, although I certainly keep trying; the story of getting stuck in a pair I tried on at Nordstrom embarrasses me mightily to this day.

Melissa: Believe it or not, my Savanna boots from UGG threaten to present me with a similar peril. 


Also, getting stuck in a pair of boots is not such an awful thing. Getting stuck in a pair of Topsiders, on the other hand....

Melissa, I'm on the same page as you. I found a great pair of Frye boots at a thrift store only to find that they did not fit my large calves. Did that deter me? No. I brought them home, hoping they would stretch. Took them to the cobbler TWICE for stretching. Still wouldn't fit. Finally took them to the cobbler to get gussets put in. Guess what? They're still too tight. I hate that it is currently the style (and has been for a while) to wear jeans tucked into tall boots. That will never be me. I can't even fit in them without jeans. :(

Tea: So sorry to read about this. Seriously, I recommend my shoe repair shop without reservation. When they adjusted my boots, they measured my calves carefully on both legs. If you're ever in Chicago, I really think you'd get satisfaction from them. And I believe they'll ship the finished boots to you, too.
