Every year without fail, I get asked about one particular item in my wardrobe: my wide calf thigh high boots. I found them four years ago on a total whim when I was out shopping with my mom who ironically encouraged me to try them on. I wore them initially to a New Year's Eve party and I certainly wouldn't recommend breaking in a heel like this for the first time on a night like that. Let's just say, I spent a good chunk of my night scoping out available places to sit.
I've worn these wide calf thigh high boots on my blog every year and one of the images of me in these boots is now one of the top search results for the word "feminist." I am not mad about that at all (even though that same image has been used for countless hateful memes).
