I’ve got my XTC lock-up pumps out and dusted them off. I’ve not worn them for an outing lately, but I‘ve strutted about in front of a big mirror and tried different skirts on. I tend to favour things like this:http://www.daregothic.co.uk/Skirts%20shop/skirts1.php
The ‘midnight’s dream’ is one of my special favourites. If I wear it low on the hips you can’t see my feet at all, only the base of my platform boots, and that’s a look I really enjoy sporting. Maybe one day I‘ll try a pair of the XTC lace up knee boots, as with platforms of that height, you’re less likely to take a tumble in boots, I find.
Yes, absolutely. High heels take pounds off you. I feel positively svelte with my platforms on.
The other thing they’re good for is watching live music. Obviously, one would be very unsteady for active moshing, but you can certainly see over the heads of the crowd. I’m usually OK, but once a lively young man in a Megadeath T shirt moshed into me and I went over. Fortunately, willing hands pulled me upright again, and somebody kicked my transmuters apart so I was able to stand. Some kind soul brought me a glass of water, thinking I’d fainted.
Incidentally, I hope Lozzy’s paying attention to this thread! There are some good fashion ideas about!
Anyway, I’m glad you’re getting used to being n such a short leash as it were. Yes, with a bit of time it’s amazing what one can still do in bondage.
