Quote of the Day:
Stiletto, I look at it more as an attitude as opposed to a high-heel shoe.
I thought Iâ€™d do something fun and different today. Since Iâ€™m such an avid shoe freak, I am (a) posting pictures of my new shoes and (b) giving you a peek inside my closet.
You might want to run away now if you think you might be scared of this little exercise. :hehe:
First of all, here are the two new pairs of shoes I bought myself with my gift cards for my birthday:
Sally-T by Guess
Maadanna by Anne Klein
Cute, huh? LOVE them. Especially the Guess. They are just beautiful.
When I was married, my husband would shake his head at my shoe-freakness. â€œBut I needed them,â€ Iâ€™d say and he would just shrug and go on about his business. Now I can buy shoes to my heartâ€™s content sans the guilt. Itâ€™s a beautiful thing.
Most of the men Iâ€™ve known only have three pairs of shoes â€“ sneakers, a black pair of dress shoes and a brown pair of dress shoes. There are exceptions to this rule, of course.
Just like there are exceptions to the rule that All Women Love Shoes. My best-good-friend and Sysenlaw, as a matter of fact, is not a shoe freak. Her daughter â€“ who is 10 â€“ however, is a shoe freak. A gene, Iâ€™m sure, she inherited from me. Sysenlaw says she canâ€™t bear to pay a lot for a pair of shoes sheâ€™s going to â€œput my fat foot inâ€ (which totally cracks me up but I swear thatâ€™s exactly how she says it).
I, on the other hand, will not blink an eyelash when I pay $100 or more for a pair. But I gotta tell ya, it annoys me that toilet paper costs $5 for the six giant rolls of Charmin Ultra (with Aloe). Why is toilet paper so much?
Anyway, hereâ€™s an idea of what my closet looks like.
These are all boots
Shoes I don’t wear regularly
All the favs go here
Are you scared yet? Youâ€™ll note that I have all the good pairs still in their original box.
Butâ€¦what is that? Iâ€™ve cluttered up the floor of the closet because I need certain pairs for easy access. The standard black flat pair I wear when I canâ€™t even bear the thought of a pair of heels. Sandals. Sneakers. Fuzzy slippers. Oh and disregard that basket lying in the middle of the floor. WTF is that? To the left is my saxophone I played in high school (doubt I can stil play it). And the yoga matâ€¦hey Iâ€™ve used it once. And then thereâ€™s the various junk I have no place else to store. Thank goodness most of that is behind my clothes. 😀
Think I have an obsession? Or at the very least a problem. I might need Shoe-Shoppers Anonymous. Oh and I’m not sure I have enough clothes, either. Might need more.
Okay thatâ€™s it for today, folks. Hope you enjoyed this entry. Iâ€™m off to work! (So I can earn more money and buy more shoes, of course!)
