You could ask a trusted friend to go shopping with you.  Someone who has a general idea of the quality of the clothes in the stores that you go into, someone who can honestly tell you whether or not something looks ridiculous.

Guys. I spent ten minutes trying to work out what rain boots are. Then I clicked that link and I realised you're talking about WELLINGTONS.

Jeez. Use the right words! Clearly these foot garments are a British invention; we need them the most.

Rubber boots! Also, I think "rain boots" is fairly self explanatory.


Tonight/tomorrow, this month's student loan trickles into my account. I think I might just go ahead and order the boots mentioned earlier, because even though buying shoes online is scary (sizing and comfort), I can always return them. In other news, I found the most comfortable and pretty grey peacoat today, at only $115. It makes me sad that I cannot justify buying it.

Galoshes are different - they are simply rubber overshoes, not full-scale Wellington boots.  Wikipedia tells me that they are sometimes called "rubbers" in the US, though I rather thought that was something a little different...

Oh, and if they are green, you lose, stylewise.  (Um, mine are green...)

I think rain boots are the best name for them to be honest. Or rubber boots. They actually help the listener understand what they are.

Need actual fashion advice

So prom dress shopping is starting up soon. I need some help, since most of you know what I look like I don't think it's a real issue. I'm thinking either black, red, or some shade of green.

I'd like something less um.. poofy, and a little more um.. not poofy. I'm trying to think about neck lines, with my bust really 50s cuts work alright, strapless and halter are also alright as well. I need styles that are more form hugging to the waist because otherwise I look like a bit of a box. I'm really really 'hourglass' shaped, and a bit taller than most, really my issue with cuts is how to flaunt it without looking like a trollop. I'm really lost on all of this. Don't worry about prices/colours, I'm trying to get ideas on cuts and style.

I want to buy some boots, but I have a small problem. Due to a childhood spent on pointed toes(I walked on the tips of my toes always when I was a child), and a love of biking, I have pretty large calf muscle. Where might I be able to buy some boots that fit around my large calves?

Man childhood tip-toers are coming out of the woodwork recently... I've heard of a lot of girls who did it when they were young recently, including myself.

But a lot of footwear stores should have extended calf sizing... Famous Footwear I know for sure does. When I did a search for extended calf boots, I found you can search for that through Macy's. Another option depending on your style and how affected you are by a fatty stigma is Torrid's boot selection. It's not "extended calf" really, but the calves are cut way bigger... since it's a plus size store. You could look into stretching the leather in a regular size boot as well so long as you have a good shoe repair place.

Boot fits are such a varied and personal thing, I don't think you're going to find a shop for people with larger calves. I think you need to pay attention to the type of boots that are likely to fit you. For example, boots that go to the knee or half way up the calf may not fit you, espcially ones with zips or buckles. I'd say you'd definitely want to try the scrunched top pull-on boots and ones with flexible lace-up tops.
It also depends on the size of your ankle comparatively. If your ankle is much skinnier than your calf, you will find yourself in shoes which are too loose at the ankle.
I'd say boots slightly higher than the ankle might be better than say, knee high. It also depends if you're going for girly girly or chunky punk boots. Chunky punk boots are likely to come with a more uniformly large ankle/calf width, wheras girly stilleto heels are likely to be very narrow at the ankle. I think you might be able to find something in between, but range of styles is a limiting factor.
Stay away from anything that will look really tight, shiny leather or vinyl, go for casual loose boots.

They may work for people with big calves, but I have to say that I hate saggy scrunch-top boots. Hate them. I have never seen anyone make them look good, or like anything other than the fact that they look like they're too big and fell down.

A question for girls, or gay guys I suppose.

I was recently in a play and therefore had to put on stage makeup and I was surprised by the number of girls in the cast who commented something along the lines of "Guys in eyeliner are hot" "guys should wear eyeliner more often" ect ect.

This wasn't actually something I was planning on doing but I'm curious if my cast-mates were just odd or if this is a commonly held thought that is simply kept in for fear of seeming to have a thing for emoboys.

There's people who do it well but they would always look good without so it's basically obsolete.

Eyeliner on guys is a really difficult thing to pull off. Most of the time it looks completely silly, and I tend not to take the guy seriously then. However, when a guy can pull it off I am smitten. But only a few guys can pull it off.


But then again, the last few guys I have dated have been vaguely goth. And if you are vaguely goth, you can probably pull it off well, but even then it is hit or miss.

Example of eyeliner on a guy looking good.

I will steal a better picture from this guy later. But he is one of the very few people I have ever met who can pull eyeliner off well. Of course, he looks good while dressed as a mine, so he can probably pull off anything.

I dunno, I don't really think that he can pull it off, at least from that picture. I have never worn anything but stage makeup though, so I can't say I have the experience necessary to make a real recommendation one way or the other on the subject. Plus, I'm not really down with the androgenous or boyish look; I've always been kind of annoyed that I'm so boyish looking myself, really, despite having been told I'm fairly cute as often as anyone else.

I used to think I didn't like makeup, until I realized that the girls I found attractive were wearing makeup and I just couldn't tell. So it's not that I don't like makeup, I just don't like to notice it.
