I have actually worn a further three pairs (all heels) but having reviewed the photos of pairs five and six (taken by husband number one it must be noted) I've decided they are too crap to use so pair seven will take their place at number five in the challenge. I must say I'm really not enjoying the photo bit, the shoes are fab but the full length photos are less fun, much less fun.
Anway, number five are red patent heels, with a cream patent optional mary jane strap, by Steve Madden that I bought a few years ago in Chicago. I made the purchase on the last day of the trip and had I had more room left in my baggage allowance I'd have bought more than just this one pair as I love this shape. They are uber comfy and very cute.
Ready for the close up
I said I was up to other shoe stuff, so to explain – I decided in order to facilitate wearing my shoes more often I needed a better storage system. My shoes, in the main, had been tucked away in boxes in a walk-in storage cupboard. So, out of sight-out of mind no more: I took myself off to IKEA and several hours later I had this:
It's actually the Billy book case with doors and I LOVE it! No more excuses about not being able to find my shoes. While it only fits a little over half of my 'collection' it will make it a lot easier to just grab a pair in the morning. Also, it will be pretty hard to forget about the challenge as they are RIGHT THERE in the bedroom. Did I mention I love this? *sigh* It may not quite be a 'shoe room' á la Mariah Carey but it's a start.
