I'm addicted to shoes. There, I said it. Actually, I've said it before and quite recently ... but let me be clear, I don't seek help!
A few months ago, I bought 80 plastic shoe boxes from The Container Store so that I can organize and better preserve them. Many of my shoes are purchased from T.J. Maxx; others are from Zappos and occasionally, from other stores. A few pairs are older, dating back to the mid 90's. There was a great shoe store In Chicago on Michigan Avenue called The Season's Best. Their prices dropped regularly. I would walk past on my way home from work and "follow" shoes that I wanted until they dropped to a price I could afford (which wasn't much then). Do any Chicagoans know if that store is still there?
As part of getting them all organized, I thought I'd take pictures and share here in case any of you are shoe-aholics like me. One can never look at too many shoes. I'll post a few pairs every time I do it. Maybe getting this done will help me get my sewing mojo back... I'll be thinking of what to make to match my shoes!
Report Signature - These are new. The fabric upper actually has a light gold metallic in the weave. It is lined in leather and has a sassy zipper on the back heel. The lower strap is leather. These are delicious and I cannot wait to wear them!
Liz Claiborne - Deep purple suede with black patent leather and ribbon lacing. I love purple and these have a witchy feel to them. Positively FUN and yes, I wore them on Halloween!
Steve Madden - Black patent leather loafer pumps. I love the chunky heel and bronzy buckle.
Franco Sarto - Ivory patent leather with holes, bow and gold trim! Positively girly with vintage flair! They're GREAT with polka dot dresses!
