    After my question on wide leg boots etc, and a great reply from Whatsnewpussycat, I took a trip to Brantano today. I couldnt find any long boots to fit, the Emotion ones were too baggy, and the normal boots just dont go near my calves! I did try on some stretch boots, but my calf just seemed to ooze over the top of them, so I bought some totally gorgeous ankle boots, and I love them!!

    I also popped next door, to the Next sale, and left there £89 poorer!! I bought black linen trousers for work £10!!, a skirt, tops, clothes for my daugher, things for OH and stuff for my son!!

    I am having a great day, albeit rather lazy. (TV on now, fire lit..... ironing basket full & likley to stay that way, today!!)

    The best thing was, with all the clothes I bought, I looked at the size label, then at the clothes themselves, and bought without trying on. I bought either 14s or 12s in all the stuff I got, and HEY it ALL fits!!! I am dead chuffed, and now am regretting my secret binge yesterday!! :sigh: (But thats a whole other thread......)

    Happy Saturday guys!

    Yay! What a great feeling to splash out on a pile of new stuff in lovely small sizes. I know what you mean about the emotion boots - as i say, I have calves a rugby player would be proud of, and the boots are baggy on me too even though I bought a pair 2 sizes smaller than normal. I looked in Evans today and they have a very nice pair of black suede boots in there - slightly smaller on the calf than the emotion ones - might be worth a look if you're still after a long pair. :)

    Ooh a new kitchen. Definitely worth missing out on a pair of boots for - I quite agree! :)
