I apologize in advance to the guys who probably don't care about this sort of stuff.
I can't help it, I have shoes
on the brain. Until very recently, I was feeling quite guilty about the shoes I've been amassing over the last few years. My dad would always flip out about how many I had. But then I met a coworker who has an ENORMOUS shoe collection. I didn't quite believe her, and was like, "how much could 'a lot of shoes' be?" The answer: almost 200 pairs. And we're talking some serious shoes--Christian Louboutin, Manolos
Now I don't feel so bad about my paltry 24+ pairs of shoes, most of which I didn't pay more than $40-50 for (some as little as $15). This means, of course, that I can buy more! Whee. Anyway, I could sure use some input from the style-minded:
1. I walked into Therapy on Castro St. today and tried on 'Ashlee' by REPORT
. $66 - 75. Loved them, but I can't decide which color to get: gray, black, tan, or cream?
2. My view of heeled oxfords
went from shock/disgust, to grudging respect, and finally to fullblown lust. Much like many a hollywood romance. =) If I'm going to spend up to $100 on them tho, I want the perfect pair. 'Perfect' to me, means beautiful contrast detailing, well structured profile, and a heel less than 3". I found all of these in 'Steppin' by Jeffrey Campbell
, but they are $100. Also found these nice little ones that are a little more modern. And finally the pair I bought on sale at Nordstrom, 'Frost' by Me Too
, for $60. Which should I keep??
3. These next three sandals are about as close as I'll get to the abominable gladiator-sandal craze that has swept our fair cities. The 'Athena' sandal from Urban Outfitters
, and a twisted T-strap
number (pink, or gold?), also from Urban Outfitters.
4. Some Jeffrey Campbell
cutout heels that I probably won't get, but don't they look interesting?
5. My humble "wall" of shoes.
