Finding and modifying boots for skiny calved girls

I'm tiny. Well in some areas atleast. I have skinny wrists (that's why i basically can't wear my beloved bangles, unless they are sixed xs) and skinny calves. I look well proportioned and everything, but in these areas i do not qualify for standard sizings. I am not anorexic or anything, i am just... like that. Think Eva Longoria - petite. So, I have problems when it comes to buying boots.

Recently i've bought this gorgeous pair of boots, it fits perfectly except for the calf part. Right below then knee, you can see how they are loose. I would see some girls also having the same problem, but what you gonna do about it??
  • If you are brave enough to trust your boots to cobbler/shoemaker, you can do so, depending on what material the shoes are made of (leather, suede etc...)  he can take them in. But I would be very cautious about the qualification of the cobbler dude. There is a high possibility of ruining shoes if done wrong...
  • There are brands/shops that make custom fitted stuff, as well as boots. My favourite - They do loads of different calf sizes, you just measure and they make them to fit you. they are a little more expensive than your average high street boots but they are good quality, and they will actually fit so are likely to last you a good few years.
    • Stretchy Boots Stretch boots allow you ample room and cater to your leg size. If you have huge calves, however, these might be a little uncomfortable for you. Also, if you go with the elastic ones, beware of the cheap feeling ones. The elastic tends to wear out and then you’re back at square one! 
    • Lace-Up Boots Lace-up boots are like corsets for your legs. This is my personal favorite solution since it allows you to adjust the boot shaft every inch of the way and still have that sexy appeal.

    • Boots with Buckles Buckle boots are great for adjusting the boot shaft and still adding that little bit of embellishment. They are less combersome than the lace-up alternative and maybe look classier than the stretch boots. 

    • Ugg Boots or EMU Boots You can also go for a boot that is less form fitting like UGG boots and EMU boots. Plus, they have a lot of cushioning inside to help make the boot fit a little better.

       And the idea that has been eating me alive recently - why don't i just buy a pair of legwarmers or thicker overknee stockings?? It would fill up the gaps in
    the boot and look uber trendy!

    Any more suggestions tips or tricks?
    Or maybe opinions? Let's discuss it!

    Disclaimer: i did not received any money to promote any of the brands or websites in this post. It is just my personal experience and i wanted to share it with people who might have the same problem. :)


  1. I have the exact same problem and I never thought of wearing leg warmers underneath. That's such a great idea!

    Thanks for sharing this :)


  2. Thanks for Your comment! Glad to hear You like the idea :))

  3. Oh I have the exact same problem as you, so annoying! You know what Though, I just wear them least they're loose, and not tight & bulging hey?!

  4. I know, i used to wear them loose also, but just got sick of it, seeing how cute it looks on normal claved girls lol. So just started looking for solutions... :) And yes, it's always better too loose than too tight! :)

Best and Worst drugstore foundations. Maybelline vs. L'oreal.

I've been using drugstore foundations forever, cause i can't really afford high-end stuff. I'm a grad-student, and  i allready spend all my money on cosmetics. I live in Europe, so stuff like MAC or Lush is non-existant here. Well at least not in my country. (Let's make the "Aaaaaaw..." sound now all together). Let's not make it sound like the edge of the world though, we have kinda everything else here... most of the popular drugstore brands, most of the high end brands... Most of the popular clothing stores....except the Forever 21... (1...2....3... awwwww)
Anyway since i've used almost every drugstore foundation there is i'd liked to share my opinion of which i thought is best and which is.... well let's call it "not-so-much"....

So i'd like to give the name of Best Drugstore foundation to Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid.
It's cheaper than the foundation that i'd like to call "not-so-much", but it works wo…

The truth behind cheapness of Coastal Scents. Fake MAC.

Since it's April Fool's day what can we found better to talk about but fools? :D
And what if we combine it with our favorite subject - beauty?

One of the reasons why i actually wanted to write about this is because since i do aloooot of research online i found some interesting theories about some famous brands. Well brand to be exact - Coastal Scents. Almost everyone interested in make-up knows this brand and owns their 88 palette. I do to. I bought it from their website directly a while ago. Everything is great. I like the quality, the palette is really well pigmented, it was cheap, i got amazingly kind costumer service (they answered tons of my e-mails very fast)
The question is - why i only had to pay 18 dollars for the whole pallette, when alot of people compare their shadows to MAC brand, which costs 14 dollars per unit. And here i got even 88 different colours. The thing is... everything from Coastal Scents are made in Hong Kong or somewhere near by. It's not being ma…

Louboutin Manicure. Classy or Trashy?

The thing that probably every girl has in her wishlist - a pair of Louboutin high heels with the magic red sole...
I was lying if i'd say i don't want 'em...
Ok, by show of hands who doesn't? 
Ok, either you are shy, or  i was right.
Louboutin's screams "girl power, sexyness, style, class"
...and that you are rich enough to purchase them.
Or you have a rich man beside you...

Anywaaaay, for those of us, who are not su lucky and don't have the possibility to buy them, can try interesting Louboutin manicure. It's simple yet so sophisitcated.
All you have to do is paint your nails in rich black color and paint your undersides ruby red. 
Photo courtesy I did my nails once like this in summer, and got lots of compliments. Thats another thing every girl craves.... So this may be not so perfect for everyday wear, but perfect for a classy night out.  Are you willing to try it until you get your shoes? :)
