My name is Lena and I'm a shoe addict.
I know it.
I recently purchased two new shoe racks.
My son thought I was crazy for putting both in the cart... "But Mommy, it says it fits 40 pairs of shoes, I think you only need one." Um... no, silly child. I was actually a bit nervous that 2 might not be enough.
I don't really think my love for shoes is a problem.
I think of it as more of a collection, really.
I don't own a ton of jewelry, opting to accessorize my outfits with my choice of shoe. I have them in all sorts of colors, patterns & styles. Wedges, flats & heels.... ankle, mid-calf, knee-high and EVEN a thigh-high pair of boots! A little bit of everything. From Converse to stilettos, there's a perfect shoe for pretty much any outfit I can put together.
|a cute pair of folksy flats from Modcloth... great way to add a feminie touch to any outfit!|
And the best part is I've paid less than $20 a pair on average... I'm a sucker for a good sale. And if I see a cute shoe with a pretty little price tag, I'm hard pressed NOT to take advantage of a good deal.
My favorite place to shop for shoes is Payless, and I'd guess that at least 70% of my collection is from that
store. With affordable prices, sales & sales on sales (BOGO anyone?), I can easily walk out of there with 2 or more pair of shoes for $20-$25.
If I'm being honest, I don't know how some people can only own a couple pairs. As much as I love shoes, I have yet to come across a pair that would match with everything...
|these TOMS wedges in camel go with *almost* everything!|

And sometimes I buy shoes that aren't even that comfortable. These are "special occasion" shoes... or shoes I know I won't actually have to wear for long. It's okay to have a few of these... It's okay to suffer a little for fashion. As long as your feet aren't bleeding or blistering by the end of the day or night. By uncomfortable, I don't mean unwearable... just only wearable for a few hours max. *wink*
|these were a steal on Ebay... they have lightnight bolts on them. I couldn't resist! **always so weird to look at old photos of my feet without tattoos!**|
So, who's with me?
Anyone need to admit to their own little shoe "addiction"... no judging here!
