….To shove inside boots, that is! This past Friday, I went to the theatre (community, ultra-casual) and had a heck of a time trying to shove my super dark denim into a pair of slouchy suede boots. It was killer, and definitely inspired me to kick off my annual “jeggings” search: I need at least one pair of super-tight jeans that can be stuck into boots without a problem. The tighter, the better, but there has to be stretch, and they can’t be too long.

Even if you weren’t plus size, you’d want to swing by Evans London at least once in a while to check out what they have to offer for shoes. Ever since their butt-kickingly good Georgina Chapman diffusion line/collaboration, I have been drooling over their pumps and boots.

I’m happy to say that I strayed a bit and found myself on their footwear page, an awesome place to be when there are a ridiculous number of seasonal markdowns on all-season shoes! I really need a pair of pumps, maybe a pair of court shoes, and boots.

It’s easy to forget that DUO carries wide-width shoes as well– I remember when they were just a boot company and I first discovered them… way back in ‘04, I think! Since I just broke the heel off an amazing pair of affordable Silhouettes flats I’ve had for a few seasons, I thought I would visit DUO and have a look around.

The good news? They are having a sale… the bad news is that their shoes are rather pricey for we American/Canadian shoppers. Still, the shoes are marked down pretty significantly– even over 50% in some cases. Prices start at around $50. Continue reading »
