So I have a serious eye for color!

Some recommendations would be a slacks with cardigan approach. Better for the fall months, but some colorful slacks such as these would definitely spruce things up! I have a similar pair, I usually match with a dark gray cardigan.

For days when you don't fear a visit from Mother Nature, these pants paired with a darker top and a scarf or gold necklace would look great!

For hotter days, a nice pencil skirt would do well! It's nice because you can get bold beautiful colors, which will keep you feeling young but also give off a professional vibe.

I also recommend a character shoe because they are comfortable, low heel, and will go with everything and anything.

For tops, a simple button-down shirt or blouse such as this will do. You can also accessorize with necklaces. You can find easy stuff on ebay or Forever 21. Here's a good example.

And in case you get cold? Cardigans. You can find something beautiful, stylish, and professional that will keep you warm in harsher weather (and air conditioning).

Finally, pick whatever feels comfortable. I only linked certain stores because that's what came up. Really, it's up to you what makes you comfortable and confident. You need to really know what you want, and go get it. Your fashion style is your own and no one can change what you like and dislike. Also, you will find things in different stores you may like, you will find them for cheaper and they will make you feel more assured then anything online could.

Good luck!!!

You guys, I’ve been the luckiest thrifter recently. Here’s a roundup of some - but not all - of the things I thrifted in the last 30 days or so:

This pair of Clarks for $6. They’re so cute (unlike your typical old lady Clarks) and comfortable and I loved them so much that I bought a second pair from eBay for $29. I want to wear them every day forever.

Two pairs of Rag & Bone skinny jeans - this one and this one. They were a little pricy for thrift at $14 and $16 each, but Rag & Bone skinnies have been on my wishlist for a while so this really helps a broke girl out. They still feel really stiff and sturdy, like they were never worn or broken in.

These J Brand Maria jeans with a cute ankle zip. The model picture of these makes me laugh because they’re much less cropped and a bit higher waisted on my short legs.

A Calvin Klein fuzzy camel coat ($11) like this. It’s alpaca and wool. Just in time for summer, ha, but it looks really great on so I couldn’t resist.

A Theory blouse that looks exactly like this one only it’s 95% silk and a pale mauve color ($6).

A Barbour L116 Black Microfibre Short Quilted Jacket like this one ($15). I’m tempted to flip it, but I’m a sucker for black basics so I can’t!

These & Other Stories leather loafers, but in black. I couldn’t find a picture of the black ones anywhere online to save my life.

These Calvin Klein black skinny pants ($7). They’re super comfortable!

These Bass black faux leather sneakers ($4).

This Diane Von Furstenberg tank ($3). It’s silk and viscose and has actual goldtone chains woven across the front.

Topshop mid blue Jamie jeans ($8). These have also been on my denim wishlist. They’re super stretchy but in great shape. Also grabbed a pair of Levi’s just like these and some black BDG skinnies like these for $4 each. Yay! I’ve been replacing all my denim recently because I went up a couple sizes and the thrift gods just keep blessing me.

I also randomly stumbled across these never-worn Eileen Fisher sandals for $8 shipped on Mercari so obviously I bought them! I wasn’t sure how I felt about them, but they’ve grown on me and I’m glad I grabbed them.

Let me regale you with a tale called The Foldable Flat Fiasco!

I spent NYE in Las Vegas, and knowing that I would be doing a lot of walking in heels, I decided to shop around for some foldable flats while I was visiting my boyfriend's family in the Northeast. I would have ordered them online, but we were leaving in the next two days and I didn't think to buy these far enough in advance. Bad planning. Oh well. No problem, right? I can go find some in a store, right? Easy enough! I can deal with post-Christmas shopping madness to quickly pick these up, right?


My first stop was at the shoe department. I assume that they wouldn't have them there, since they weren't quite display-worthy, but that they would know where I could find them. Assistant #1 directs me down to lingerie. Fine. I go down to lingerie and scour the racks and racks and racks, and find only (surprise) lingerie, comfy pjs, and all types of undapants. I pick up some spanx tights while I'm there, and head up to the accessories section. Nothing. I try the purse section (because they go in your purse, right?). Nothing. I pull up the Macy's website and see multiple foldable flat options, just to make sure they had them. I go back to the shoe department, where Assistant #2 tells me that Macy's doesn't sell them in-store. Great. So I go home, wait another day, then I head to...


Surely Wal-Mart will have them, I think to myself. It's Wal-Mart. Their website has them. They have to be in store.

I asked some assistants for help, and they look at me like I asked if they sold iguanas. They are not in store.

Well, that's fine. I don't like Wal-Mart's aesthetic anyway. Let's go to their cooler older sister.


The assistants look at me like I asked if they sold gold iguanas. That's cool, Target, I don't need the extra Starbucks calories anyway.

At this point, I am getting frustrated. This isn't a quality item. It's cheap, and meant to be cheap, but I can't let them go. It's becoming my white whale.

Famous Footwear

They haven't seen these in stores for years, but they cheerfully tell me that they're having a 50% off sale. That's nice, but those shoes look like quality items that I'd wear on my feet, and not things that I shove in my purse in compact form. Who needs that other crap?


The assistants had never even heard of foldable flats. How could they not? They were very much a real thing in my mind, though I'm starting to wonder if I'm having hallucinations.

I forgot to mention that my boyfriend has been with me this entire time. We can both be amazingly stubborn about things, so this has become his white whale, too. We sit in the car while he pulls up websites of stores around us. He suggests Party City. "They have a bridal section," he says. "Lots of bachelorette party supplies."

Party City

Swing and a miss. Good effort, boyfriend. Way to think outside the box.

However, I've hit my wall. "I'll just wait to buy them in Vegas," I say. "They MUST be easy to come by there!"

Las Vegas, Nevada

They are! How wonderful! We're picking up snacks in Walgreen's and I see them by the front. I pick up a box and strike a victory pose. I buy them, the cashier asks if I want the receipt, I say "no" because I'm a cocky sonofagun, and we go back to the hotel. Finally, I think to myself. These better be the most useful purse shoes in the entire world. I better feel like kittens are lightly massaging my feet.

The box only had one shoe. It was too big. I throw it out and keep the pouch.

Moral of the story: there is no moral. This was utterly demoralizing. But I had fun typing it out, which I guess is all that matters.

u/cricketthehorsecat · 1 pointr/xxfitness

The Smith machine can be good for certain people in certain situations, like if there's a problem with their stabilizing muscles, or for injury recovery. And I get that it's attractive for people worried about lack of spotters, but that's what safety bars or power racks are for.

So yeah, try not to squat in those squishy, cloud-like shoes. Keep thinking of pushing through your heels, but the cue is really to help you maintain your total foot contact - you don't want to overcorrect into being on your heels so hard that you could actually lift your toes. But it's a cue because, like you, many people "want" to push more from their toes, so don't feel alone on that!

For now, just use your metcons, and maybe try some goblet squats in addition to the Smith machine. "Real lifting shoes" are hard-soled with a raised heel. They provide a solid connection to the ground, and the raised heel helps with range-of-motion. I'm a crossfitter, so I use Inov-8 Fastlifts which are lighter and more flexible than true lifting shoes like Nike Romaleos, but many people lift in chucks or vans. Your metcons are a perfectly fine shoe to start in. If you're getting more serious about it in a few months, then spend the money on lifting shoes.

Good luck with the rolling. Hopefully we can help more once you record some sets for us to see!

u/honestplease · 23 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I think depending on the style of the loafer or oxford, it can be fine. I wouldn't cheap out and get something trendy or casual, which will not only look juvenile, but will show wear much easier. Some examples of what not to get: this, this, this

The last pic may seem fine, but I think it's lacking in terms of structure, so it comes off as pretty casual.

Some examples of what to look for: this, this, this, and this

FWIW, I've had better luck finding nice quality loafers than nice oxfords/wingtips. There are some UK brands which make some excellent wingtips for women, but since I don't know my size and it'd be an (expensive) international order for me, I just admire them from afar.

u/aniceknittedsweater · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Since I can't make this its own thread, and it's super super specific, I'll try sharing this here!!

I'll be attending a three week group vacation-thing in Europe in May, consisting of both indoor casual and formal activities (workshops, business meetings, brewery tours, sightseeing, etc.) as well as outdoor activities (two free days of outdoors stuff, a night lantern hike, etc.). I'll be traveling to Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, and England, and I am absolutely overwhelmed with what to pack. This is geared for a college/about to graduate tour group! Here are my constraints:

  • I don't want to look like a tourist (pretty obvious)--I've only ever been to the UK and that was for a one week sightseeing/art trip, so it was all indoors, very easy to pack!
  • No access to washer/dryer (probably)
  • I have to be able to carry the luggage in question. I'm a 5'3" girl who works out, and currently I have a large suitcase I can drag up/down stairs and a Patagonia Black Hole Duffle for my back. That's the limit of my packing.
  • I have a severe sweating problem. If I get even slightly overheated, I will sweat through absolutely anything--silk, cotton, linen, you name it, I'll stain it. So, rewearing things is really challenging in the spring/summer months. So what weather should I prepare for as someone from the deep southern USA?
  • I own zero stuff for hiking (probably), just general gym wear. But I was looking at these boots. Could I use them for both hiking and blend in wearing them around the cities? I don't want to bring a ton of shoes!
  • What kind of bag/purse would be best to bring?

    I'm super super overwhelmed and terrified of not being dressed properly since I have some health problems/wear out pretty easily! Thanks for the help!!
u/Grim-Sleeper · 10 pointsr/personalfinance

Depends on what you need.

  • if you just need a basic key for your computer, then the blue Yubikey U2F FIDO works fine. It currently costs $18. That's IMHO quite fair. There are cheaper FIDO U2F devices, but the Yubikey is quite sturdy -- something that is important for a device you keep on you all the time.
  • if you also want to use your key with an Android phone, then you should look for a device that is NFC enabled. Alternatively, you might be OK with using Google Authenticator or Authenticator Plus on your phone instead. As a software solution, it is not quite as secure, but certainly cheaper. Only you can determine if this is a risk you are willing to take.
  • for iPhones, you'll need to get a Bluetooth-enabled token instead. I don't have any first-hand experience with those, and thus can't make a recommendation.
  • if you want a U2F token that you always leave in your computer (and assuming you haven't switched to USB-C just yet), then I can't say enough good things about the Yubico Nano. It's pricey, but IMHO well worth it for your everyday computer. No risk of accidentally damaging it or loosing it. For the vast majority of users, leaving the U2F token in the computer is the correct solution.
  • you probably want to get at least one or two spare devices that you keep in a secure location somewhere. These would be for account recovery, if something bad happens to your primary device. Feel free to pick one of the cheaper off-brand devices. They only need to work once or twice at most :-)

    A couple of sites now support U2F. But I wished, it was a lot more. It's such a great solution. If you read the specification, you'll be impressed with the balance that they strike between security and convenience. It even protects against most types of phishing and MITM attacks! And you only ever need a single token for an arbitrary number of sites and accounts. You can even safely share it between users!

    Of course, I really wished that U2F became a default hardware feature for all cell phones, all laptops, and all computer keyboards. It's frustrating to see that we still have to buy third-party tokens.

First off, many of these things are intentionally cheap, because I do tend to break and/or lose things, so... Here goes.
All have Amazon links, because that was what was easiest.


u/doddlegyver · 1 pointr/FrugalFemaleFashion

Madden Girls Rancee boot is a little expensive but very worth it in my opinion. (Raleigh, NC winters are milder than most so if protection from snow or cold is a HUGE issue, you might want to find something more lined.) This is an Amazon link but I'm sure you can find it cheaper with some extra digging. Madden Girl Women's Ranceee Ankle Bootie, Taupe Paris, 8 M US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01H7S7TUQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_-DxHybY1H4AS2

Also check out American Rag Bunkker boots. At one point I found them for like $23.00 somewhere. They got me through three Indiana winters and I loved them. The fabric on the side is a little corny but if you zip it up it's a cleaner look.

I have a few tricks.. I can wear mine about 4 hours if I'm walking a lot or so far I've been good with 8 hours at school doing a mix of walking/sitting in lecture.

Warning though: wearing heels like this can mess up the positioning of your uterus, and can cause knee and foot damage.

Now onto making your legs look good :D

  • wear a shoe with a wedge heel - this is my number one tip for long days. something like this?
  • I buy steppies for the heels that hurt the balls of my feet - not all of them but if I notice it's an issue. Also recently I've just started using the same pair for all my heels and transferring them. On amazon and walmart so you can see the packaging.
  • shoes with an ankle strap and or peep-toes often hurt less for me but I can't explain that one
  • buy shoes with a built-in platform - just like the ones you showed there - it decreases the actual angle of your foot but still makes your legs look really long. I just bought these ones :D - so comfy and easy to wear love
  • If it feels tight on your toes in the store it's bad news bears. I've made this mistake so many times and it just isn't worth the pain. You'll find new fab shoes. Same with if they slip even a little bit.
  • I got this tip from Victoria Beckham: to learn how to walk in heels better, pack a pair of flip flops and go shopping. Walk up and down every isle with a cart (for balance just in case) - but it gives you about 30 mins in new shoes on tile or linoleum which is the worst so you can learn with something to grab on to.
  • personally I hate thick heels but if they jive with your style they're much better for long days. I found better ones at saks but that tab isn't open atm so you get aldo as an example.
  • Beige shoes and shoes with a pointy toe (beige pointy toed pumps for double points!) make your legs look really long so you can get away with a shorter heel. These are more white but I quite like them...

    This is all I can think of off the top of my head but have fun and build up. Pack comfy shoes and change when you need to. Actually, dr. scholls just produced like packable flats (Fast Flats they come in a cute gold bag to toss in a purse).. Over time you'll notice that you are able to walk further and longer in heels - I don't wear them in transit - I wear comfy shoes and change around the corner before I arrive at where I'm going most of the time..

    Good Luck!

Who doesn't need some ridiculously adorable panda slippers? Your chilly feet will be swathed in cuddly, fuzzy, warm panda goodness. :3

At the very least, everyone needs a pair of slipper, so you might as well make sure your slippers are the cute panda kind! Thank you so much for hosting this contest!! =D

u/magelanz · 8 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I'm looking for boots now too. I think my standards are similar to yours: able to stand up to the El Nino rains coming up, able to walk at least 2 miles without getting uncomfortable, and I want something cute, not too formal - something I can wear grocery shopping and back and forth to the gym.

These are the 4 I was looking at, I was going to check out REI tomorrow to see if I can try them out. If anyone has any feedback on mine, feel free to share!

Keen Bern Boots

Merrell Captiva Buckel-Down Boots

Born Jorah Boots

Teva De La Vina Boots

Out of the 4, I think I like the look of the Merrell and Teva the best, but I want to try them on and see them in person before I make any decisions.

EDIT: I have a 13" calf circumference, any ideas if these or other brands might be suited for a narrower calf?

SECOND EDIT: I tried on the 4 at REI today (although they didn't have the Merrell Buckle Down, they had another Captiva) and of them I thought the Teva De La Vina had the best fit and look for me. No major gap in the calf. They didn't carry the black though, so I ended up ordering them on Amazon for $137 and free shipping.

Slippers? https://www.amazon.com/Totoro-Dust-Bunny-Makkurokurosuke-Slippers/dp/B001JT6ZQE

There's always a moon lamp. I don't know what it is I like about these things but it just seems like a really cool gift item. It has like an artsy/Studio Ghibli-vibe to it but also a hipster-y vibe too: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074SF11JZ/ Maybe I just need to buy this for myself. XD

Hush Puppies

Dr. Martens - these don't specifically come in a wide-width, but they're sized VERY generously and I highly recommend them as a fellow orthotics-wearer.

Rockport - available in wide-width except for 11

Sam Edelman

Hope you find something you like! I know how tough it is to find nice looking orthotic-friendly footwear.

u/credditcardyougotit · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You're very welcome; your ideas were the most generative/inspiring/inline with what I was looking for, and helped lead me to what I ended up gifting them.

I ended up going with Totoro slippers (though not the ones you linked to-- I chose [these] (http://www.amazon.com/Totoro-Soft-Gray-Plush-Slippers/dp/B004RJRAVW/ref=pd_sim_sbs_t_2) instead), chocolate and regular D10 dice for B (though I was VERY close to purchasing the crusader mug from your link), and a Paul Muldoon broadside for C. I enjoyed your suggestion for C the most, but figured if I was going to spend around $30 for a teacup set, I might as well shell out an extra 10 for something truly personal (he's a big Muldoon fan).

Thanks again for all your aid, and everyone else-- you guys were all a huge help.

u/elenym · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Long-time lurker! Hopefully this is the right place to post this....

I need shoe help! My work wardrobe mostly consists of dresses worn with a cardigan (or blazer), and leggings (not tights). I am terrible at shoes, and it's hard to find ones I think are comfortable. I usually wear flats (this is my current pair), or slip-on sneakers. I just tried ordering a bunch of shoes from amazon, flats and wedges, and I'm not in love with any of them.

Should I be looking at booties? I hadn't tried booties because I am really short (4'10") and I have pretty fat ankles/calves. I've looked for taller boots and have never found any I can wear over my giant ankles. But maybe booties would work? My fear was they'd make my legs look even shorter, or would be too tight around my cankles.

Ideally, I'd like something comfortable that I can walk moderate distances in. Also, I suck at heels, so a very short heel or a wedge would be better. And I'm cheap! So under $50? Clearly I'm asking for a miracle here.

u/may5th · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

[Sam Edelman Petty ] (http://www.amazon.com/Sam-Edelman-Womens-Petty-Ankle/dp/B004I5D2PI) boots in putty suede? I want a sleek, light weight, really comfortable pair of ankle boots. I walk a lot and always fall back on my New Balances but they just aren't sleek. I'm not too worried about the suede because I already have really solid waterproof boots and I'm generally a fan of taupeish color because (I think) it pairs nicely with brown or black.

My main concern is, are the Petty boots just too trendy? I feel like I'm seeing them everywhere right now and the price tag is high enough that I'd like to get at least a year or two of wear out of them. I guess black leather would be a safer choice in terms of being able to blend in but I just don't like them as much.

u/Lenify · 6 pointsr/running

Running barefoot often helps teach proper running technique. Don't assume you can run as far as you can with shoes though initially. Start slow with low mileage. Slowly build up as your feet adjust.

Also save up for some minimal shoes. I'm currently running in these and they feel great. Very similar to barefoot, yet with a nice thin layer of rubber to protect from glass, metal, sharp rocks, etc.

Another great option for cheap.

u/Callque · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I had Sam Edelman's Tinsley boots in polished black for a couple years and loved them. I needed a wide width so I recently replaced them with A New Day's Alex boots and I'm loving the matte black because at first glace they can pass as normal boots. I wear them with cuffed jeans like this and a jacket similar to this. It's great because it doesn't look so obviously 'rain gear' like most are.

u/bennypandemonium · 3 pointsr/powerlifting

If you're looking for lifters, I LOVE my Innov-8 fast lifts. The heels are solid. A great deal on Amazon.

I recently got a pair of the Innov-8 fast lite for general work. Love them too!

I work at a small company producing vintage style t-shirts(read: american apparel tri-blends with hand screened prints). We wear our product all the time to help promote ourselves, which basically includes jeans and a t-shirt. I dont really have shoes to complete the look though. Its been fine so far because i just wear sandals all the time since it was summer, but now that its cooling off, i want to find a pair of nice, versatile shoes for the rest of the year.

I was looking at something like these: http://www.zappos.com/saucony-originals-jazz-low-pro-vegan-grey-red

Or These: http://www.amazon.com/Vans-AUTHENTIC-SKATE-SHOES-PEWTER/dp/B003433FWA/ref=sr_1_47?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1381235760&sr=1-47

Im just not sure. Ive got a laid back personality and i think that reflects on my personal style, but i want to get something that goes with a lot of colors, will hold up against snow, and still looks nice without breaking the bank. Does anyone have suggestions?

I summon /u/batfacecatface because she was one of those willing to take time and listen to me whine about my life when I needed it the most! You are amazing and thank you so much

She really needs these super cute slippers - becasue 1. CUTE!! so cute and 2. because her other half says she has to wear slippers in the house! and 3. Kindness is key and she has it in spades!

Currently wearing these in the brown (a little darker than cognac but not chocolate brown either) and they're suuuper comfortable especially with the insoles I have to wear-- I walk probably 5 miles a day in them-- and good quality/durability so far!

Edit-- I got these instead of Bass weejuns for the same reasons you list below, and am happy.

u/AngelicBabyGirl · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

you have to buy these! They are adorable and you clearly love pandas so indulge in you panda buur loves! :3

u/sean_incali · 10 pointsr/running

Not at all.

Maybe you haven't seen these?

The ones I'm wondering about are this one, and this one

I've run using teva/teva clones and the likes in the past and they're fantastic for me. Keeps your feet cool and easy to clean and maintain. Just wear them into the shower.

edit let's add one more.

u/Encinitas0667 · 28 pointsr/vagabond

Changing your socks frequently won't help much, but it will help protect your feet from blisters and "hot spots" (areas that aren't quite abraded enough to blister, but which become painful and sore enough that you don't want to walk.)

Breaking in boots and shoes is extremely important in you are living life on foot. Infantry soldiers are issued two pairs of boots. They are supposed to alternate boots every other day. When you first get a pair of combat boots, you soak them in water, beat them with a wooden-handled scrub brush, put on two pairs of clean, woolen, combat socks, tuck two spare pair into your belt, and go for a walk. Halfway through, you stop, take off the boots, switch socks to two dry pairs and walk back. As the boots dry, they begin to mould to your feet.

On the second day, you do this to the second pair of boots. You only need to soak and beat them once, but you need to switch boots every day so that they wear in evenly and they have a chance to air-dry out (from sweat) to avoid fungus. Pull your boot inserts out of the pair that is "resting."



Your foot bears weight unevenly. If you look at a barefoot footprint in wet sand, you can see that your body weight is borne on the "ball" (metatarsals) and "heel." Because of the way people walk when wearing boots (the heel strikes the ground first, then the toes) and especially when marching in cadence, military boots tend to wear worst on the back of the heel. In effect, lacing boots up above the ankle protects the ankle, but causes people to walk unnaturally. If one grows up barefooted or wearing moccasins, your natural gait will be very different, in which one points the toe when taking a step. This looks somewhat like a ballet dancer pointing her (or his) toe. The toes/metatarsals strike the ground first, and the heel later. This is similar to the way people's feet touch the ground when running--you run "on your toes," kind of.

Boots will wear more on those areas where the foot bears the majority of the body's weight, and as the boot sole wears, depressions will form inside the boot to accommodate the plantar surfaces of the foot. This is what we mean when we say boots are "worn in." Once this occurs, as long as you do not wear your boots with wet feet and wet socks, your feet should not blister. However, when on a long hump you should still rest your feet ten minutes out of every two hours, and change socks and inspect each other's feet during the rest.

Modern hiking boots usually do not require much of a break-in period, but they also are not nearly as durable as military boots. They are designed a lot like tennis shoes.


Older design (1970's) mountaineering boots have a very stiff sole and a very robust way of lacing. Walking in them feels a little bit like having boards strapped to your feet.


Everybody chooses boots that suit them best. Nothing wrong with that. I chose boots that were not necessarily the best quality or the most comfortable, but for which I had good evidence to support the idea that they would not fail me 1,000 miles from home. I chose military packs for the same reason. Tough, durable, almost impossible to break.

After months of searching/hoping, I finally found true high rise black jeans with 93% cotton... and I got them for $35!!! thank you Gap!

I've only worn them once (after washing) so I'll have to see about longevity, but so far it feels like a Christmas miracle.

I also finally got some Chelsea rain boots after holding out for ever. The Sam Edelman ones went on sale on Amazon for $22 (usually $55) a few weeks ago and I pulled the trigger.

u/wildcatz311 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I need slippers WINTER IS COMING.... and my feet are awful cold. I'm tired of sitting on my feet to keep them warm, then having my feet fall asleep, there is nothing worse than feet that are all pins and needles tingly when you have no choice but to hop up quick like for some child related emergency. Wishlist link

also you are awesome and I hope you are having a good day <3

u/krallfish · 2 pointsr/FrugalFemaleFashion

I absolutely ADORE my pair of Teva De La Vina Low boots in bison! They are incredibly comfortable, durable and versatile. I wear them out on the town, but also at the ranch, and even for hiking. They are legitimately waterproof - I walked through ~6in of water in them while crossing a creek and my feet stayed dry.

They also come in a tall version. I would gladly buy my pair over and over again. I plan on buying black and tall versions eventually. :)

u/redparapluie · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I have the charlie brogue. It looks like they currently have these available, but patent leather can easily get scuffed. Other quality comfort brands to consider are Born and Bass. Looks like you should be able to find something for 100-150(USD).

u/ilovepaperdolls · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thing I want Because who doesn't like soot sprites?

Elephant Barber

Something interesting about myself.... I'm from Korean, Japanese, French, German, and English descent. I also love paper dolls :)

u/bexcellent101 · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

2nd the smoking slippers... I have these ones from Clarks and they are GLORIOUS little foot-clouds, and they look amazing

u/prettypinkdeer · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

PURCHASES! Woohooo. I never shop for myself, like ever. So this past week I treated myself.

u/SarahwithanHdammit · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I was just going to say this. Dance heels are designed to stay on your foot no matter what and provide you with excellent support. I was dancing in character shoes from when I was 10, but you can find prettier styles if you look for ballroom dancing shoes

Do NOT buy stilettos right off the bat, those are harder to balance in.

You might also consider starting with a boot that has a solid square heel

u/fluttershy123 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These totoro slippers i've wanted these for a long time because they look so soft and comfortable and I love the movie My Neighbor Totoro.

u/iftodaywasurlastday · 1 pointr/Bitcoin

I was just explaining it to u/floofugus. After reading these stories, I am removing my mobile phone from most sites that need 2FA and getting a Yubikey. I hope Gemini gets back to you in time. They seem like a well run exchange, so I suspect you'll be fine.

u/nudumveritatem · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

the sam edelman tinsley is really similar, has great reviews and would probably be available in nordstrom or other department stores!

i have the stormy and they are definitely not comfortable - i have narrow feet and they're almost too narrow for me.

u/flyingmountain · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Good job canceling, those were heinous. To be honest I've never seen a decent looking pair of shoes from Skechers.
Try these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003433FWA
Or these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006GVOUAS
Or if you want boat shoes: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000FK5HSU

u/abd1tus · 2 pointsr/androidapps

I've been using LastPass at home and work. I also like it since I just started playing around with and liking a NFC U2F card, which the LastPass android client is compatible with.

u/privacy_punk · 16 pointsr/privacy

Your cell phone has a unique key, IMSI, which authenticates your device and is paired with your number. Someone can definitely spoof their number as yours, but wouldn't be able to receive your data stream.

Google gives you the option to use a physical device like the YubiKey as an alternative to using a mobile device.

u/sorrynothanks · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I have these oxfords in black and I'd definitely recommend them.

u/jlynnl · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Oh, yes bring flats. Especially for the dance part of the wedding. You can buy collapsible flats that slip easily into a clutch if you don't want to carry/worry about another pair of shoes being somewhere. I bought these at a drugstore.

u/infiniteloope · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS7

It should work, but it might be better to get a NFC version. Then you don't have to carry around an adapter.

u/theredditorswife · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Happy birthday!

I'd probably get myself these slippers because I'm a sucker for Totoro. And my dog chewed up all of my slippers haha.

u/MysteryMooseMan · 2 pointsr/TeenMFA

hey, are those Canvas Authentic Vans? they look nice. I might consider picking up a pair.

u/ruthannr94 · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I pretty much always buy clothes non-stop but I've actually been keeping a list of how much I'm spending this fall and I need to go on a no-buy really soon. But first I must decide if I want black leather Dr. Martens or Patent pewter spectra Dr. Martens. Part of my brain is telling me that obviously I need both.

u/SkyRuin · 1 pointr/VisitingIceland

If you care more about style, as a 101 hipster I can state that I see these everywhere (I can admit to owning about 5 pairs). People either get a waterproof option or spray them with some sealant. They have worked fine for me on light hikes, but it's more about your personal expectations.

u/purplenat · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have some Clarks smoking loafers which are probably my comfiest flats, and these loafers look like they'd be comfy too.

u/awweaver · 4 pointsr/LifeProTips

Note: You can have more than one kind of 2-step verification.

Yubikey (This only pops up on Desktop/Laptop) < --- The security key mentioned in the image.

Just my 2 cents.

u/danyisnthere · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Let's see..

  • Sam Edelman Petty ankle boots, grey suede
  • Sam Edelman Petty ankle boots, black leather
  • Ralph Lauren brown riding boots similar - they're so old that I can't find a picture of them, but got them from Marshall's for $99
  • Cheapo slouch boots for a costume brown suede
  • Ariat cowboy boots with heel because I live in Texas

    Only five! I'm surprised.
u/HOT_LOBSTER · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I got the Petty 2, which unfortunately doesn't come in black and is cheaper for some reason, but it looks like the Petty (which I'm assuming is the one you were looking at) is only 130 on Amazon (some savings, at least?).

u/Magikarpical · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Amazon.com for cheap docs! I don't know if they are good for winter, since there is no winter in southern California, but they are comfy.

u/ABCDigitalBlog · 21 pointsr/techsupport

Look into second factor authentication. Here is one version of a hardware key that is needed to login, they can have your password but without this key they cant get in https://www.amazon.com/Yubico-YubiKey-NEO-USB-Authentication/dp/B00LX8KZZ8

You can also use google authenticator, requiring a code each time there is a new login attempt.

u/slidesupplies · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

What about chelsea rainboots? I have a pair in black from J.Crew, they're waterproof and I got matte ones so you can't really tell that they are rubber boots from far away.

u/VAPossum · 1 pointr/modnews

Is this it? Because $50 isn't that cheap, and the last thing I need is one more thing to remember to carry around with me.

u/xiongchiamiov · 2 pointsr/ModSupport

There are any number of possible "factors", but generally speaking people mean "something you know" and "something you have" when talking about 2FA, and that's where I'll stay for the purposes of this discussion.

"Something you know" covers passwords, answers to security questions, and anything else that's a piece of knowledge you could tell me and I could use to authenticate as you at an arbitrary time in the future.

Most commonly, a "something you have" is a device (smartphone!) that implements HOTP or TOTP. Since the algorithms produce different numbers every 30 seconds, someone who intercepts the number once has no way of predicting what the correct number will be after the 30-second period has finished. This is really important, because it means to successfully compromise your account, an attacker not only has to steal or guess your static password (which they can do remotely), but steal a physical device that you probably keep on your person, and either alert you to it being stolen or copy the inputs the device uses for the OTP algorithm (which isn't trivial).

Personally, I use a Yubikey and either U2F or their HOTP/TOTP app. It's pretty cheap compared to most HSMs, and is significantly less likely to be compromised than my computer or phone. For most people, an OTP app is sufficient, but since I often find myself with full-access Amazon credentials for companies and things like that, I have a bit of a more paranoid risk model than most.
