This is not related to height, fashion, or anything other than my sweet tooth. But the name of these flats makes me want to wear shorts and eat a Bahama Mama Rama. Let’s pause in honor of this.


Yum. If you’re ever in the southwest, you need to find a Bahama Bucks.

Big Sandals On Sale!

September 19, 2013

barefoot-tess-cabos-wedgeYou know why I love this time of year? Sandals go on sale, and I live in the desert, which means I can pretty much wear sandals year-round! You know why I love Barefoot Tess? They have women’s shoes in sizes 10-15. And right now their summer shoes are 70-90% off!

These cute wedge sandals are just $19, down from $99. Or how about the Rio Sandal? Those babies make me feel like I need to be on vacation.

If it’s cooling off where you are, check out the Tarta Bootie. I need to wait for temps to get back down in the double digits before I pull out my boots, but I would rock these in the winter!

Athletic Shoes for Beautiful Big Feet

August 20, 2013

saucony-zapposIt’s no secret that larger-than-average feet come with the territory when you’re tall. I’ve been a size eleven my whole life. Until baby # four, that is. I was in denial for a while, but I finally accepted it. My feet grew. Or spread, or whatever it is that babies do to us. (Thanks a lot guys!)

Thanks to a few shoe companies that actually carry sizes beyond ten, we tall ladies do have some options! I am shopping for new running shoes this week. I love, love, LOVE Saucony for running. They just feel better on my arch than any other shoes. And I love that Zappos has free shipping both ways.

I’m leaning toward these ones.

Tall Ladies, Heels or Flats?

May 17, 2013

zappos-naturalizer-nomaTall ladies, do you like to wear heels or flats?

In my college years I was an athlete, so the vast majority of my friends were tall, which of course also means big feet. The average height of my female friends was probably 5″11-6’0″ with an average foot size of 10-11. My friends’ preference in heel height varied though. Some lived in flats. Others proudly rocked the heels, not worrying about the extra height.

Personally, I like a bit of a heel. Even in flip flops, I usually opt for something with a bit of a wedge. Now, I can’t get on board with the 4-5″ heels. At that extreme, I get wobbly and feel like there is a sprained ankle waiting to happen. But do I love me a 3″ heel.

Check out these cute sandals from Zappos, wouldn’t they be great for summer? Can someone tell them to send me a pair in size 12? (Yes, I am finally letting go of my 11’s, thanks to my babies. Pregnancy does a number on your feet doesn’t it?)

So tell me what you prefer, heels or flats? And if heels, how high? And how tall are you?

blowfishwolfwhiskey012.jpgOk you east coast readers! Barefoot Tess is a shoe store specializing in women’s shoes, sizes 10-15. I just got word that they are having a huge sale Jan 26-28 in their Baltimore MD store. They’re offering a 20% discount on in-store purchases (some exclusions apply) and giving out 10% off coupons to everyone who comes in, just for stopping by. Discounts on winter merchandise are up to 75% off and they will have a limited selection of jewelry and handbags as well.  Everything available on their website will be available in store, and they have TONS of sizes 10-11 left in stock that must go.

It looks like they have also redone their website since I last visited, and it seems to be much more user friendly. I love it when sites have features to narrow down what you’re looking for!

I got these Blowfish Wolf Heels from them, and I love them! I get compliments every time I wear them. We’ve even been using them for maternity photo shoots!

Review: Tall Boots and a discount code for anything

December 8, 2009

century-tall-bootI used to live in Arizona, and loved that you can wear sandals all year round. Those days are gone. I have been wanting some tall boots to wear with dresses, so my legs don’t freeze.

I bought these for $34.99 last week (although the price has now gone up).


Pros: Calf room is decent. I was worried because mine are a bit thick and they were out of the “full calf” sizes. I ordered the “average calf” size and they fit fine.

Cons: Not super comfortable, and the fake leather looks a bit fake. Go figure.

Verdict: Keeping them. They were super cheap, and I will mainly wear them to church, where I sit a lot so comfort isn’t a huge issue. Just checked back tonight and their real leather boots are on sale for $64.99, down from $130.If you want either style (or anything else at JCPenney) you can use the code NICE4U at checkout to save $10 on almost any order that is $10 or more.
