Cheating! A Peek in my Shoe Closet
I’ve been working on a couple of posts that I haven’t quite finished yet so due to the overwhelming and very, very much appreciated response to the shoe pictures which I posted, so I’m going to cheat just a little bit on this post. Near the beginning of my blogging adventures I actually posted pics of all my heels. Today I’m bringing them back for all of the wonderful new people who haven’t seen them yet!
Let’s start with the wedges. For summer these are a staple in my closet. I can run around in them for hours and they don’t hurt my feet! I think it’s all about weight distribution so there’s no pressure directly on the ball of my foot.
Some of these you’ve just seen. This collection houses some of my favourite heels. The black ones on the left I bought at a huge discount probably about 8 years ago. They visit my shoe repair guy on a regular basis and he’s kept them in immaculate condition. What I love most about them is that you can unroll the sides so they fit right up the leg. I had many compliments with regards to the snakeskin sandals. They are from Michael Kors. I purchased them several years ago on a mini shopping trip to the mall with my dad. We both fell in love with them and he bought them for me on the spur of the moment….Hey what can I say the man has great taste! The nude pair at the bottom I bought on a shopping expedition with my sister (she’s by far my favourite person to shop with). The final pair are my prized Louboutin’s that I got in NYC after running into the store to hide from a man who was trying to kiss me….. Crazy story.
These are the staples that go with everything. Classic shapes and shoes that are really easy to wear. Can you believe that most of these heels I’ve had for more than 5 years? My trusty shoe repair guy once made me promise that as soon as I buy a new pair, I must bring it to him. Occasionally he tells me to take them back, but for the most part he resoles my new beauties, preparing them for me to wear. Then, as soon as I notice the heels starting wear out, I bring them back and he fixes them for a few dollars. That’s why I can afford to buy really good quality heels, they last for years and years! This isn’t to say that I don’t appreciate a great sale.
These are some fun booties. They’re also a staple, and as much as I love them I’m ready to put them away for the summer!
So this is a peek into my closet, hope you enjoyed it!
