The phrase “under God” was not part of the original U.S. Pledge of Allegiance. It was added decades later, after Congress approved the controversial addition and President Eisenhower signed it into law on Flag Day in 1954. Source
As a gender variant fashion blogger, it can be really difficult to find great shoes. I wear a size US 11 and I can not find a pair of heels that fit, unless I am buying online. So in response to the thousands of questions I have received about my shoes, I give you this! A list of places where you can buy cute shoes in sizes US 11 or higher! Each with an average price range, highest size available & a tid bit of info on the brand. NONE of these links are affiliated, AT ALL. I simply want to make finding great shoes a little bit easier for people who need a higher shoe size. I highly encourage anyone that may know of any other places to get great shoes in a higher size, to reblogg this and add your own recommendations. I personally will be following this post to see what others have to suggest so that I can update the original post regularly. Also, below is a basic shoe size conversion chart.
CHARLOTTE RUSSE - $30-$60 Highest size is 11 but the selection is good. Plus, every Tuesday they have a shoe sale, online only.
TRAFFIC SHOES - $20-$50 Highest size is 11 and the selection is low! You really have to search, but you might find something perfect at a perfect price!
ALDO $50-$120 Highest size is 11 with a fair selection, however nothing to exciting. Great quality.
US TRENDY - $30-$150 Highest size is 12 with a HUGE and kind of random selection. Not sure how reliable they are about getting sizes back in stock, but they seemed to be out of a lot!
PAYLESS SHOES - $30-$80 Highest size is 13 with a really nice selection actually. Plus, the website is really easy to maneuver with options for wide or narrow feet. As far as finding a pair of shoes that are really unique, you might get lucky, but for the most part they offer basic styles.
Long Tall Sally -$100-$300 Highest size is 15!!! The prices are real high, but at least the offer sizes past 13. The styles vary so you’ll really need to look to find something good.
TORRID $25-$85 Highest size is 13 with a cool selection. The prices are slightly on the higher side but I think its worth it for the designs they offer. Also, just so you know, they make you sign up for an account before shopping but its not to time consuming. Plus, you can go ahead and put your sizes in so that only things in your size appear when shopping.
6PM SHOES $20-$90 Highest heel size is 16! Highest shoe size is 18!!! Not to mention, the selection is INSANE! There are a ton of shoes to look through but the website gives you tons of options to narrow your search!
DSW SHOES $30-$80 Highest size 13-14 depending on the style you’re looking for. If you are looking for that WOW pair of heels, you might actually find it here. You’ll have to search through the bland stuff but there are some stellar finds here and there.
I’ve added a simple shoe size conversion chart for anyone that needs it.
Reblogging for any of my followers who like cute shoes and have larger feet!
Finally, Nigeria’s Kidnapped Schoolgirls Are Coming Home
The agreement, announced by the country’s defense minister, also involves a cease fire between Boko Haram and Nigeria’s military. The government expects the terror group will not back out on the deal. “Commitment among parts of Boko Haram and the military does appear to be genuine,” an official with Nigeria’s security forces told Reuters Friday. “It is worth taking seriously.”
Boko Haram militants abducted more than 300 schoolgirls from Chibok boarding school in northern Nigeria in mid-April, sparking a worldwide outcry and propelling the group onto to the international stage for the first time. Over fifty of the girls escaped early on. The rest have remained in captivity ever since.”
As reported by Mother Jones
AWESOME NEWS - this has been such a nightmare to follow, it is so great to hear the girls are being released!

Progress! About to declare Nigeria clean on Monday too!
Remember the black woman who was sentenced to jail forever because she fired a warning shot in the air to prevent her abusive husband from hurting her?
Finally the justice system decides to make sense.
I’ve never understood the difference between literature and real life. Base your life on the books you admire most, and never look back.
