When it comes to shoes, every woman has at least 10 pairs at any point in time, I reckon. Well, at least, any "vain" woman ;-)  (If you think I'm vain when it comes to cosmetics, wait till you hear about my shoes stories...) It's easy to try on a pair of shoes, or several for that matter, and then to take them all home at one go, especially when there are sales on! I've had taken some 10 pairs of Italian shoes right back to the office after a lunch spree. Call that extravagant or call that dumb. I don't know. I'm a woman and women are entitled to some follies in life, aren't we?

Strictly speaking, we only need a pair of shoes at any point in time. However, as with handbags, things have to match, don't they? And looks can make or break the deal, won't they? I wonder if a man ever fall for a woman based on the shoes she put on the first time they meet? I supposed not. In all earnest, I think height does matter when it comes to attraction. Why do we women love shoes so much, if not to attract the opposite sex like the peacock does? 

Let me think... it goes way back to Cinderella's days, I believe. Fairy tales and the fact that shoes give a girl a sense of oomph and an elegance (on a pedestal). That's it, isn't it? Whatever the reasons, be it conscious or subconscious, you can hardly find a girl with only a pair of shoes in this world. Even if they are all track shoes, they are a great many pairs of different styles and colors. Sometimes, two of the same pairs! Incredible, isn't it? Our fascination with shoes?

Come to think of it, over the course of my life, I've had countless number of shoes. May be even more than 200! I have lost count! How about you?

Well, shoes are shoes. Then there are other shoes. So, what do I like in general? Depends on the occasions and the seasons. I've had boots that can withstand -40 deg and also sandals that feel great on a 40 deg C day! Generally though, in my younger days, looks are of utmost importance. Now? Comfort! Yes, your shoes don't lie... or rather, your feet don't. When you get past a certain age, high heels on long hours will be a great torture. You figure you no longer need to impress the man, even if he's the president of the country. That's just life... Although, I don't think Imelda Marcos thought so! ;p

No matter how crazed I am, these are shoes I won't be caught in...
Take a look & if you find it funny enough, laugh! Enjoy...

Wow, those are some pretty wild shoe photos!:) I agree, Sharrie, a girl can never have too many shoes. I'm excited to read more of your reviews!

Thanks, Bethany! It's a lot easier to shop for shoes than to write about them ;-)

Only 10 pairs? I guess I must be super vain then! ;P  Seriously though, agreed!  Every woman should have the luxury of a few pairs of nice shoes, sunglasses, handbags, etc, in their life.  Boys have their expensive toys, so girls can have some too!  Not sure if I want the ones in the pictures though.... ;)

Well, I'm trying to tone it down a little. Not wanting to make others feel bad... In reality, triple that and that's just in one household, LOL... Not to mention those in a different country & warehouse! As for you, you're young, you're entitled to be super vain, haha!
