Oh happy day! I can zip up my boots!
A little background:
7 years ago - I bought these black (fake leather) boots. I don't think they ever zipped all the way to the top - I've got big calves (okay - not just the calves - the whole leg), always have, always will - that's what nearly 10 years of being a softball catcher will get you!
ANYWAY - I've worn these boots - without the zipper all the way up for years, no biggie because they were under jeans.
Last week, I was out looking at Halloween decorations - and wandered over to the costume section @ Walmart. I haven't dressed up for Halloween for YEARS - because I was so big - let's not bring attention to it by dressing it up!
I was always envious of women who wore those sexy little costumes - and I KNOW they come in plus size too... but I just wasn't confident enough to pull it off.
OKAY - BACK TO THE COSTUME DEPT. @ WALMART -
so I see this "dark angel" costume and LOVED it! It is so cute! Exactly my style and what I want to wear. (see the link)
So I started thinking to myself, you can't buy this! Your boots won't zip up - and that will not but cute.
So today- I went in the closet, they zipped right up - and tomorrow I'm going to go back to walmart - buy the costume, wig and a pair of fishnets!
I knew that my legs were still big - but with running - the muscles are taking a different shape - Next test - I have to try on my ski boots!
