If Fairies Wore Shoes....

... they would come in little boxes like this and be sparkly and gold just like these, although obviously smaller! These beauties are pretty darn high and they did render my feet somewhat uncomfortable by the end of the wedding to which I wore them! At one point I feared I'd lost them having kicked them off to dance, and then, due to a few glasses of bubbles, I couldn't remember where I'd left them. I think I managed to have at least four people looking for them at one point though I'm almost positive that none of them were as frantic about the missing footwear as I was!

But ignoring the shoes (and I never thought I'd hear myself utter those words)... don't you just love the little black box that arrived courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue, all the way from New York City? It contained the much blogged about replacement heel tips which I was very pleased to receive but, me being me, I was far more excited about the miniature shoe box with that infamous postal code on it! It contained no less than seven pairs of tips that mean my Louboutin's will live on for as long as I have the inclination to wear them, which right now is just about every day! Yes I know I can't wear them for food shopping, preschool runs or to feed the ducks but I'm busy trying to create some suitable alternatives in my social diary that will fit the bill! So far I have come up with Christmas party, Other Half's birthday dinner/hotel stay and my 40th bash next year.... any other ideas will definitely be considered! Cost per wear basis needs a little work here!

They say that good things come in small packages and any package with the postal code 10022-SHOE on it is definitely up there on my list!

P.S. Don't know about you but I'm impressed that I've gone three weeks without posting about shoes!

You are so a shoe fetishist (sp?)
There was something on the radio today saying that that average AVERAGE woman has 30 pairs of shoes.
Are you going to fess up That Girl and reveal how many you have?
Or do you go for quality not quantity?

I do that cost per wear thing too, and I love shoe porn, more please !!!

that girl ? said...

So...judging from the comments above, it would seem I'm not the only shoe-a-holic out there!! (Tho Liam, they're not really your colour!)

Tara - Being the saddo that I am, I did take the opportunity to count them when I was storing away the flip flops and summer shoes recently! Lets just say that I almost have as many pairs as there are states in America! And I love my comfy flat £5 sale special Mary Janes as much as my Choos - although I can't promise the same if I get the Manolo's for my 40th!
Auntie G - Glad that the blatant shoe imagery works for you! I tell you I almost fainted in Saks shoe department - it was heaven on the 8th floor! I could so some serious cost per wear justice in a place like that!

Just got home from a night out with friends - feet are sore but the beautiful shoes I was wearing looked gorgeous and got lots of comments! Why do we do it?! Mind you, Miss Banana at the age of 2 already loves shoes (especially heels!). What have I created?!! X

Yummy Mummy said...

Katee said...

Those shoes are gorgeous!!!!

Tara said...

@Banana: We do it because there is a chip in our brains that make us (well that's what I tell hubby anyway). Some women don't have it switched on, others have it switched so far on it's broken off. Not naming any names . . .

that girl ? said...

Banana - Glad to see you're still working those heels! After all, no one could do it quite like us in our Charlie's Angels era! And as for Miss Banana and Small Child... well.. they are just peas from the pod!
YM - I think we are a suppressed nation of shoe porn addicts!
Katee - Thanks! Loving the new green nail colour picture too!
Tara - I like your style - blaming it on the genes! (Or should that be jeans?!) And names? Surely you don't mean me.....??? Nah!

The shoe thing has passed me by...I wish I loved beautiful shoes, but when I wear high heels I walk like a transvestite. I need you to come and turn me on to wearing girlie shoes instead of flip flops and converse in summer, biker boots in winter. Or Birkies, or even Uggs (and not even the real ones - the shame...) So cosy.

Wow..! Those shoes are very stylish and gorgeous.
