  1. I suspect dww thinks you are having a "holier than thou" moment, and trying to justify being "holier than thou" confirms your position. I've explained to you this isn't a critique thread. Never was, never will be. But you are insistent you can say/do whatever you want about my taste in something special. You might well be able to post what you want, be there are consequences to doing that. 1. I will not post anything on this thread ever again. 2. Since my posts are being criticised and I'm finding myself arguing about it, I will abdicate from all communication/posts until March. If I then find myself in a similar position when I return, I will add you to my "ignore" list. I really can't be bothered to participate in a Forum where I have to justify myself. Life is too short. Lastly: Céline Dion, 50, says critics of her slimmer frame should 'leave her alone' as she finally addresses relationship with 'handsome toyboy' Pepe Munoz By REBECCA DAVISON FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 09:02, 29 January 2019 | UPDATED: 21:33, 29 January 2019 Céline Dion is set to headline the British Summer Time Concert in Hyde Park this year after her 15 year Las Vegas residency came to an end. And the iconic singer, 50, has addressed her 'slimmer figure', iconic sense of style, and those rumours of a relationship with 'toyboy' Pepe Munoz. Talking to The Sun, Céline said her new sense of style (which is incredible) and her slimmer frame has been criticised. +5 Outspoken: Céline Dion, 50, has said that critics of her slimmer fame should 'leave her alone' as she finally addresses her relationship with 'handsome toyboy' Pepe Munoz +5 He's my handsome best friend: Céline addresses rumours that she is now dating 'toyboy' Pepe Munoz, a Spanish backing dancer, who is always by her side as she brands herself 'single' She said: 'If I like it, I don't want to talk about it. Don't bother. Don't take a picture. If you like it, I'll be there. If you don't, leave me alone.' She also told Lorraine: 'It [an interest in fashion] has always been part of me, but the way we used to work before was maybe more conservative. 'If now I have an opportunity to wear haute couture and the things that make me feel beautiful, strong, fearless, feminine attractive… even if it was just for me. You cannot please everyone all of the time.' Well said Celine.
  2. This is a critique part of the Forum, knock yourself out. "In the flesh" these looked taller, and the heel isn't exactly unpleasant. The real stopper is the price. Even reduced to £120, and assuming they had my size, I doubt I'd be making a purchase. That might change if I worked in an office and could wear these at work. That 4.25" is a very wearable height for my size 8 feet, and I'd like to wear heels for a work day or work week to get the experience of it. Ho-hum.
  3. I am pleased, as will be others of course, at your contributions and effort you put into this Forum too. However, there is a well known saying that runs something like: "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything." (I might be paraphrasing, but the gist of it is there.) This isn't a thread for critique, that function is found on another section in the Forum - as shown. My hope is/WAS, others would contribute to the Something Special thread with links of images of media they too thought might be considered special. It was never meant to be an opportunity for people to tell me I was mistaken in my view of what I consider special, no more than I would be inclined to disagree with anyone else's viewpoint on what they thought was special. In fact my attitude toward 'negative posting' extends to ignoring several posts in another section of the Forum where critiquing is expected. I really don't like some of the shoes/boots shown, but rather than post something negative about styles others feel attractive, I've written nothing. I know through experience and training, negative posting - especially on matters of taste, leads to members keeping their thoughts to themselves. If you must write that you don't like an image and are compelled to say so, then you must. But please resist the temptation to challenge me on why I thought it 'Special'. These women have tens of millions of followers on social media. Anything they do, and likely everything they do is seen daily by those millions, because their followers are interested in the lives of these women, and the fashion statements they make from time to time. If there's a question to be answered, it's "what are you failing to see, the rest of us can see?" As to continuing with this thread, I think I'm pretty much done with it. If the content is so unpleasant, what's the point? I'm not looking for an answer by the way, as there isn't nor could there be any point.
  4. While out shopping today, I noticed these. Reduced in store to something like £120. The heel is not as high as I would like, but the sort of heel that could be worn all day (if the opportunity arose.) What attracted me to them was the narrow-ish shaft, and small spacing between the lacing eyelets. It suggested the boots could be tightened to fit my very slim legs. Better still if the were higher, and covered calfs.
  5. I follow fashion, and some celebrities who are involved in or around it; those affected. The ones I include here, are those that wear higher heels, or higher than you'd expect to see in everyday life (given age or status). What I don't do, is offer up images for critiquing, be that people or their clothing. There is a completely different section for that. Clue: As to the knee boots remark, you are wrong. They've just not been mainstream fashion for years. Yes they have been around for years, but then so have wellingtons, which also haven't been part of mainstream fashion for some time either. If you want to start a fashion debate, please start one by all means, but this thread isn't about debating anything, nor critiquing any look of person or their attire. It's about images of heels seen in the press, or social media. If you don't like what I post, I invite you to put me on your 'ignore' list. Of course if you do, over half of what's here to be read, will vanish. I put more effort into keeping this place ticking over, than the next 7 contributors combined. (4389 vs 3344) Have a think about that as you complain about the content I include.
  6. The lovely, Helen Mirren. At 73 ......
  7. For the past 3 -5 or so years, I would say yes. It's been ankle boots or something over the knee. But knee boots are coming back .... I'm with you on the open toes, but we don't run the fashion industry. Open toe otk/thigh boots are everywhere. Still. You might like this though >> Victoria Beckham criticised for wearing open toe boots << I don't think that's a problem you'll have to address any time soon.
  8. Working like a Trojan, she hasn't got an ounce of fat on her. As we get older, our muscle mass reduces significantly. She's probably not using Botox to pad out ageing/sagging skin either. Unlike Madonna, who looks increasingly like a cat every time I see a new picture of her. I think your comment is fair, but I sincerely hope you are wrong - for all the right reasons. As your rightly say, her grief might well be affecting her health but I hope it isn't. She's reportedly worth circa $400M and it would be a cruel twist of fate if she didn't have a long life ahead, so she could enjoy her earnings.
  9. I don't know if you know, but knee boots are coming back in a big way. That skirt probably hangs better when the wearer is stood still. I have a 'pet hate' (dislike) of baggy/loose tops tucked in waistbands though. That sweater should have been left over the skirt, or a more fitted top worn. She is a grafter who has never carried any weight. She is appearing at Paris Haute Couture week, so many of her outfits are tilted toward that event. I would be very happy to have a 50 year old that shape on my arm.
  10. Someone well known for wearing high heels, Victoria Beckham.
  11. A regular high heel wearer .... Celine Dion Always a special pleasure to see a mature lady wearing high heels.
  12. The ever lovely Kate Beckinsale ....
  13. In the absence of high heel wearing opportunities outside, I've been wearing some rubber soles 4" wedges around the house as slippers. They are what are known as 'high-tops' or as what I have always known to be considered "baseball boots". They are are challenge to get on and off because of the lacing. Better designs have a side zipper too for easy on/off. So I've been looking at EBay for some wedges. Not had any luck really. Obviously, wedge shape heels are not that popular, at least not wedge heels on or over 4 inches. Ideally I would find something along the line of a high wedge mule or clog (clog = closed toe mule) with a rubber wedge that I could wear at home without clonking around. ... Some of the styles shown here don't look too bad.
