I don’t consider myself a girly-girl. I wear jean 97% of the time, the other 3% I wear denim shorts…that actually sit at my knee. I believe shorts should be longer than your vagina…I own dresses but never wear them.
But shoes, I LOVEEEEEE. It might be in my DNA being female, but I just love them. I’m not sure where it started, as I used to be a sneaker kind of girl. It could have started when I started working in an office and actually had to dress decent every day. I also had the disposable income a 20-something-year-old has.
At one point I had about 60 pairs of shoes. Heels, sneakers, wedges, flats. I had them all. I loved them all. I never wore them all.
I was addicted to buying them for 2 reasons.
- They were cute and of course I’ll wear them sometime
- They were on sale
So over time I had a collection. It took over my room. But that was ok, I lived by myself.
I even did an assignment on them when I did an Events Management course. I’m sure the class thought it was very entertaining.
A few years ago, I culled some. Gave them away, parted with them over time. I still have many shoes I never wear. Now I wear my thongs (flip-flops for those non-aussies) so today I made a decision. I was going to try to get rid of some.
I have posted many on a buy/sell Facebook page in the hopes to sell some to some other women who will love them. But I came across my wedding shoes.
Man, these shoes are gorgeous. I knew the second I saw them that they were meant to be on my feet as I walked down the aisle. What’s sad is that they have been sitting in a box for 3 years. These shoes are for dancing, not for staying hidden. It breaks my heart that I’ve had nowhere to wear them. Of course I had to put them on. Yep still fit. Yep, still gorgeous, yep still make me feel like a million dollars in my jean shorts from an op shop in Texas and my $6 singlet from Big W.
I now need to convince my husband to take me somewhere special that I can wear them. Cleaning, the park and shopping just won’t do them justice…
