LET TAKE A MINUTE... talk about shoes!  I LOVE SHOES.  I love heels, I love fats.  I love them neutral, I love them colourful.  I love statement-makers, I love shy basics.  love to buy shoes when I feel fat and depressed, I love to buy shoes when I need to celebrate a memorable occasion.

It was a debate wether I love shoes more or I love purses more.  But I come to realize that I cannot live without shoes (unless if I move to a beach-front resort).  I mean the shoes are part of my sillouette.  Heels (4" & up please) elongate my legs and give me a better posture! 

Having collected as many pairs as  I have donated to the Salvation Army over the past 15 years (I'm an early bloomer), I now have a better understanding of what suit me and my lifestyle best.  Here are my rules regardless how much of a "deal" it seems:
  • Never buy shoes that don't fit - there's nothing uglier than shoes that are too big or too small (and let's not forget the possible injuries involved)
  • Never buy cheap-looking shoes - this is hard to describe but you just know when they look "cheap"
  • Never buy shoes that are not comfortable at the store - they're not going to get better after 3 hrs of walking in them!!
  • Never buy shoes if I can't think of a single occasion that I can wear them (unless they are collectables)
Here are some of my current favorites:
