how many shoes?

Shoes – most women love shoes don’t they?

summer wedges from seed (worn by the lovely Jude)

I will shamefully admit that I have been known to stroke a new pair of shoes, repeatedly go back to the wardrobe to look at my new shoes and that I often see shoes as an object of beauty.  Have I gone too far?  I’m not alone, am I?

But, the other night I was cooking dinner and listening to the TV when a story stated that research has found that women on average own 25 pairs of shoes.  From my chopping board I screamed out “No way” – it sounded too much (as an average).  But on reflection hmmm, just my thong collection (havianas, souls, birki’s) probably come to 10, then theres the trainers, boots, sandals, not to mention the shoes that you love but don’t wear anymore etc. etc.  Are you the same? Is there a category of shoe that you love? Maybe a patent Mary Jane? Are you a pointy toed stiletto kind of lady? I love red shoes, especially if they are shiny.  Red shoes make me happy and other peoples red shoes make me envious.

The story also said that alot of women have at least one pair in their wardrobe that they haven’t actually worn yet.  Do you?  So come on ladies, lets fess up, this is a warm and welcoming site for shoe lovers, no judgement okay!

    I wish I bought new shoes more often… haha.. I actually haven’t had many events needing new shes lately. I AM a big birki lover though ❤

    I’m wearing my red Vans sneakers right now. I’ve got a pair of red velvet ballet flats that barely get worn – I should probably do something about that.
    Love Mumabulous

    I nearly bought those Seed sandals. Now I am annoyed that I didn’t. I think I own way more shoes than the average girl then. AAuughh, must be time for a clean out. Rx
