The reason I took on the enormous task in the first place was being tempted by some Versace classic pumps at good old TK Maxx, left, positively a bargain at £199.99 down from £450! Well I was trying to justify the purchase........which then made me question what I already had that does a similar job.
I went to my shoe cupboard and groaned. Took everything out, re-positioned the shelves, took a few Flash wipes to clean the accumulated dust and then surveyed the heap of heels and soles looking at me from the mound on the bedroom floor. Versace pumps all but forgotten!
So after hoicking a few bags of footwear up to the loft (I'll sort those out later!) this is what I'm left with. Are you ready?
In boxes on the top shelf are sentimental keepers, 1 pair of Dolce & Gabbanna wedding shoes and a pair of peach satin heels that I wore on my engagement. My first pair of 'designer' shoes, Patrick Cox satin tango shoes and a pair of snow boots! 1 pair of sparkly Zara black heels and Mulberry heeled espadrilles and a strappy lilac heel too.
On the shelves below that are:
3 pairs of Havaianas flip flops,
A tan pair of gladiators, espadrilles, block heel sandals,
A leopard pair of heels, ballet pumps and slingbacks,
Gold sequin ballet pumps,
2 pairs of trainers, 1 pair of converse, 1 pair of Supergra and Mi Stan Smith's,
2 pairs of strappy ghillie flats and black brogues,
A pair of taupe courts, taupe strappy heels, then black leather fringe heels and a pair of sparkly flats.
A pair of black leather heels, suede heels, and suede ankle boots.
A pair of pewter snakeskin print heels, silver and black bow ballet pumps, black mix ballet pumps, snake print and black patent flats,
Taupe peep toe shoe boots, khaki suede lace up block heel shoes, black & white print heels.
A pair of pony print slippers, tan riding boots, tan ankle boots, grey suede slouch ankle boots, grey over the knee boots, black flat knee boots, black leather block heel boots.......
That's not including the three pair of ankle boots by the kitchen door or the Ugg boots hiding in the hubby's wardrobe!! So by my count that's fifty. Not quite Imelda Marcos, who claimed to have had 1,060 pairs of shoes, but pushing it....the question is do I need fifty one???
Well it is my birthday next week!
Thanks for stopping by.
