When I said that every girl needs the perfect pair of flares, what I really meant was every girl needs the perfect pair of thigh high boots. Incidentally, if you are looking for a good pair of thigh high boots, Stuart Weitzman makes the best. Hands down. The one garment that continues to elude me has finally become my captive. I especially get a thrill when they slavishly slink up my legs without budging, yielding to my swift dexterity as I knot each strand of leather to secure them somewhere mid-thigh. For lack of sounding too Anastasia Steele, how can we not feel a bit more dominant in these?
You don’t know unless you try. I always wanted thigh highs so I could look like Miroslava Duma, slipping them over a pair of jeans and a big comfy Russian winter sweater. When I put them on for the first time, I felt more like Dita Von Teese in a life-size martini glass than a street style doyenne. I mean, to the outsider, I still look cute and chic and stylish and all those lovely things we double-tap on Instagram. But on the inside I am feeling a whole different edge. So that’s why women wear these things…
In light of feeling like a woman, has anyone read some of the articles coming out of The National Post about Caitlyn Jenner? They are absolutely fascinating and oh-so controversial. I wouldn’t be surprised if these journalists become pariahs for not bowing down to the “only transition that matters, ever.” I mean, even I’m a bit hesitant to share them because I know at once all the bandwagon-jumpers will be like OMG HOW DARE YOU! Give it a read. Personally, I think the real issue is that our society has given the entire Kardashian/Jenner clan a voice so loud that their low-brow values are accepted without question. It is certainly fascinating as a case study on celebrity and social phenomena.
A few questions for you, lovely readers:
I usually don’t go off on a rant here but I like to encourage you all to expand your horizons. If you do end up reading the article, let me know your thoughts? Has Caitlyn Jenner taken women and feminism 10 steps back? Is the National Post just trying to be controversial to get more readers? And lastly, do you get the same feeling of reappropriating female sexuality when you slip on a pair of thigh highs, too?
