A Few of My Favorite Things

Have any of you watched the movie “In Her Shoes”? It came out quite a few years ago (2005) with Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette. I love one part in that movie, Cameron (Maggie) is asking her sister Rose (Toni) why she bought all the shoes (Rose has a closet full of gorgeous shoes) and Rose replies “Shoes always fit”, and I’ve remembered that line ever since. Would someone look up the song “New Shoes” by Paolo Nutini, also a favorite song. Wish I could have it playing on my blog. Someone tell me how to do that!
I’ve always had a love for shoes. I remember as a senior graduating high school, I got a dress in my favorite color (purple) and somehow my parents found me a gorgeous pair of purple (think they were a sort of suede?) sandals. We lived in Wyoming! How did they find some purple sandals?? Oh my gosh they were just killer!
I’ve had a lot of pretty shoes since then. I spent some time picking out shoes I would wear to my wedding, looking for the perfect over the knee boot last year, scouring online stores trying to find a silver boot, and frantically searching for the perfect red boot the last couple weeks. Shoes always fit right?
After my last pregnancy in 1998, my shoes actually did not fit….the size of my feet changed….whaaaaat?
Yes, previous to pregnancy, I wore a size 10…after I couldn’t fit in any of my shoes. So….in a moment of impulsiveness…I got rid of all my size 10 shoes! Nooooooo, but yes I did and have always regretted it. Some time later, I don’t know if it was two months or how long; I realized my feet were back to size 10. Only then I had some (maybe two or three) pairs of size 11 shoes and no size 10. Gone were the cute boots and flats and anything else that fit. I had to start from scratch.
A couple years ago I had a garage sale and (don’t say it) got rid of two or three pairs of shoes…I can see them now: one pair of brown chunky/army style boots I got at Journeys, a pair of tall tan boots with fur on the top from Buckle, and a slinky pair of rhinestone studded heels I got somewhere but can’t remember. Although they were so pretty, I just never found anywhere to wear them.
Reminder to self: Never get rid of any more shoes! This is a really important rule to remember!!
Back to my love for shoes! A couple weeks ago I saw a gorgeous pair of red booties and since then I’ve been trying to find a size/color/fit I like! Finally I found one in my size and impatiently waited for them to arrive; and voila! Seriously people, they are incredibly gorgeous and fit perfect! I get light headed and giddy when I look at them, they’re so pretty. Although I didn’t pay a pretty penny for them, got them at Asos.
Here are some of my favorite shoes and me wearing the pumps with red! So fun!
