Searching for the holy grail of knee high boots, coupled with high fashion and incredible comfort can at most times elude us curvy fashionistas. So what can we do, when we find the most comfortable leather boots, the most stylish of them all, the most scrumptious buttery leather, and the only thing that is wrong is that:
So what do you do?
Go to a cobbler.
A who? A what? No. not the delectable dessert, but a cobbler, someone who re-soles boots and shoes!
You see, last weekend, while I was at the Blog Her holiday party, I saw the most ingenious thing ever! A curvy diva, who sports a nicely shaped wide calf, took her boots to a cobbler and had them ADD a V of leather to her boots! They were black leather and it was amazing!
You heard me!
Doing some research, I found out that this is quite common! Focus on Style interviewed a cobbler who specializes in boots stretching and tailoring, You Look Fab tackled shoe alterations, and Fatshionista (the LJ community) discusses options for widening boots!
Now, I know there has to be someone out there who has done this, and if you did, please share!
