Skinny Jeans and Nice Wide Calf Boots

Hello fatties. I have come to post about import fatshion issues: skinny jeans and nice looking knee high wide calf boots.

First, the boots. I feel like in fall/winter we are all looking for the elusive inexpensive, cute, knee high boots that are comfortable and cute. This year I feel like I was victorious. I got these boots from Silhouettes ('Sport'). They're $89 full price, and currently on sale for $69. They come in black and brown, are flat, and come in W and WW widths. The tops of the 10W boots are 19" around and the tops of the 10WW boots are 20 3/4" around. I fricking love these boots. I have successfully stomped around Boston in the snow wearing these boots. WOO! I do suggest waterproofing them if you live in a snowy climate (using sno seal).

The next issue is skinny jeans. I see mainstream fashion blogs talking about how only skinny people should wear them and I thought "PSHAW." I went to a Torrid over Giftmas and tried on several pairs. I bought Tripp skinny leg twill pants. I *love* them. They're snug but not sausagey. I find them to be very comfortable, and I love how my ass looks in them. I'm suspect they are not the highest quality, but so far they haven't fallen apart.

I just got a pair of Z Cavaricci skinny leg jeans off of Ebay. They're bright red and I'm enjoying them. They're fairly comfortable and cute. The legs aren't as slim as the Tripp jeans and they're more low rise. Other than that, good times.
