Shoe Bonanza

Confession time. I started the FIMTSO series because I’m supposed to stop buying (shoes especially) in bulk. By bulk I mean more than one pair of a particular style…hence, the reference to Imelda Marcos. But the universe is doing all it can to help me keep Imelda’s tradition alive. In fact, the Louboutin post a few days ago was just a hint of the shoe disease eating its way through my wallet this sale season. Because here’s how it’s manifested itself once more…in the guise of some JCrew sandals:

Umm…if I had a black suede bag you’d also see the same sandal in black suede next to it because yes, I got 3 pairs of the same sandal. What’s with the number 3 anyway! But in my defense, I have to say I got a great deal on these sandals. A week of your Starbucks habit pays for my sandals. OK, maybe two weeks.

But you know, if I should get to the point where I can beat this shoe disease, there’s already someone else in my family to carry on Imelda’s torch. Check out my niece Lil A’s shoe bonanza. Her mom just got her 3 (or 5…the girls in my family don’t like to count) pairs of shoes from Daffy’s. I swear 3 is a magic number around here…

How cute is she tottering around in those open-toed sandals? If you’re 14 months and wobble like that you’re adorable; if you’re my age and wobble like that you’d be called drunk. Here’s a close-up of that delicious skin inside the third pair of shoes:
