Rachel Zoe’s Shoe Collection

I was reading an interview with Britney Spears in my latest Lucky magazine and something she said struck me as odd.  She mentioned having a lot of shoes and when asked to elaborate on what she means by a lot she said, “like 50?”  Now, maybe she’s telling the truth but I have a hard time believing that.  After reading this, I got into my closet and counted my shoes.  I have 35 pairs in my closet at this second and that’s not counting all of my winter shoes up in the attic.  I’m guessing I have close to 45 pairs total.  Five less than Ms. Spears and I make a few dollars less than her a year.  I don’t know, maybe shoes aren’t her thing.  But they are definitely mine.  Always have been and (from the looks of things) always will be.

When I was younger and would get a new pair of shoes, we were impossible to separate.  I would literally go to sleep cuddling my new shoes.  My mom always said I was a young Imelda Marcos (she left behind at least 1220 pairs of shoes when she fled the Philippines during a 1986 uprising, you can go here to see more of her collection.).  Shoes make me happy.  You can use them to completely change an outfit, start conversations or put a pep in your step.  And it doesn’t matter if you are a size 2 or a size 22, you can find great shoes that will make you feel great about how you look that day.

Some of the shoes from the Imelda Marcos collection.

My mother just introduced me to the website ShoeDazzle.com.  I know she meant well but I see bad things happening.  They have you answer a few short questions and then provide you with a style profile based on your answers and provide you with shoe options you might like.  I have already found a pair of boots I may (most definitely) have to add to my collection.  The website offers free shipping and easy returns if the fit is wrong or if you just decide you don’t want those shoes after all.  Right now they are having a BOGO deal going on plus when I signed up, I received a 25% off first purchase coupon.  Meaning those boots I have my eye on are now only $26!!

My beautiful boots!!

In addition to that, I received a DSW flyer in the mail today (does anyone else just die once they walk into those doors??) and for a purchase of at least $48, I can get a free python tote.  I’ve never wanted a python tote before but when I saw that, I decided I had to have it.  So hopefully they’re still around after my next paycheck  🙂

Am I the only one obsessed with shoes?  Are there others like me out there?  Tell me all about your love affair and what you do to supplement your shoe wardrobe.

XO,
