My Love For Shoes

...is a love that knows no bound!


Call this a confession of a shoe addict if you will...but for me it is just as simple yet as necessary as breathing! Ha!

Mariposa's weakness aside from butterflies is SHOES! Yes, you read it right, SHOES..footwear, sandals...boots...high heels...call it whatever!

I think for years now I have spent so much for shoes that if I am to sum up the receipts, I'm guessing it would be more than enough to pay as down payment for cars! And I mean modest cars...not the BMW or Mercedes Benz okay? ;)

I just can't help it, I keep buying shoes and I don't get to wear them all! I get to buy at least a pair every week...or make that every time I go to the mall. That is on top of the scheduled shoe shopping that I do on occasions and seasons. No wonder I get to accumulate this much of shoes! To be honest I have not counted them all so I really do not have a clear number plus I tend to toss them out too soon sometimes!

I have posted some of my shoes here yet I can't stop myself from posting them again. So here is some of my Manolo Blahnik shoe collection...no, Sex and the City has nothing to do with it, I love them already even before I started watching it and well, I've only watched the movie anyway!

These are my formal corporate Manolo Blahnik shoes...which I rarely wear if at all lately.



Yes I have a thing for high heels. I have been on high heels since I was 16, I was first year college then. Anything below 3 inches is not high heels for me! There was even a time I can't seem to walk on a flat shoes...so I wear elevated flip flops! So crazy I am! Though lately I admit I have mellowed on it and just wear flat to mid-heels at work. Just trying to preserve my legs, heels and soles! LOL




Funny that a pair of really nice shoes make us feel good in our heads - at the extreme opposite end of our bodies.

So ladies, what's the highest heels you've ever worn? Have you had to wear painful...but gorgeous-- ones to a party? Because I did...many times! What can I say, my love for shoes goes beyond any sense of comfort...LOL

So there the confession of my heart...the other love of my life of which I am so lucky to embrace by the IT Guy...my love for shoes!

Happy (not so) WORDful (less) Wednesday!

Oh gosh. Just saying the word "shoes" out loud makes my mouth water. Are you sure you aren't my clone?

I have a pair of really hot platform wedges that are the highest but I'm too lazy to go measure them. Look for my blog post, I will post about shoes now. You've inspired me, fellow shoe lover.....

That is a very impressive shoe collection. And we at CatSynth can admire your love for them, albeit from a distance.

Not much to contribute to your inquiry about heals. Though I did once try a friend's platforms and nearly broke my ankle :)

Marites said...

My WW is up too.

Gorgeus shoes.

Hootin' Anni said...

I so love shoes too!!!! In fact, just yesterday a new pair of heeled sandals for me.


My W W is now published. I hope you can stop by sometime if you find time. It's a YOU TUBE I made of slides on a walking tour I took my husband on this past Saturday. If you have speakers, turn up the volume...some good music was added! Happy Wednesday!

I am Harriet said...

I'm with ya on the shoe thing!

Momisodes said...

Those are gorgeous! I adore heels as well. They really do engage a whole new set of muscles in your legs and make them look beautiful :)

lovely shoes you lucky girl!! I can't walk around in high heels anymore- I think having babies threw me off kilter!

Brenda said...

I love shoes too, and especialy those purple ones, so cute!
