Just think about it! Remember (you older folks) how the media made a big deal about Imelda Marcos and her thousands of pairs of shoe? Or those pictures of people who have like rotating closets to show each pair of shoe?
I say to myself, "oh, I dont' have anywhere near that many shoes! I am a simple person when it comes to clothes; just what I really need. "
Yeah , right! Including sandals, flip flops, snow boots, slippers, paddock, show or cowboy boots, dress shoes, high heels, running shoes, water socks, I must have 25 pairs of shoes. And that's just ones I actually wear. There are more that are too old and worn out, but I haven't thrown them away.
Like you I have an assortment of various shoes, all of which were bought BC (before child.)
Nowadays all I buy (and wear) are work boots/shoes. I have about 3 pair of those tan construction type of boots men wear (only when I can find them small enough) 3 pair of Mucks boots with various treads, 3 pair of super cheap sneakers, all covered in poop, of course. About three super duper winter work boots....
Yeah... my feet are sooo pretty from all of those!
I think the last time I wore heals was in... um... ah....(thinking)..... ??
