I always thought of dresses as my biggest weakness but who am I kidding - it's shoes! Shoes, oh shoes. I just can't get enough. I can't help myself when I see a beautifully shaped shoe and especially not if I try it on. Oh!
It just so happened that I got myself not only one but two pairs this weekend when doing a quick trip to Tallinn. And, sigh, I have another pair waiting for me at the post office. I'm hopeless. But shoes just are so delicious.
While a faiblesse for dresses still isn't totally hopeless in our climate due to the fact that one can somewhat dress them up for winter a shoe-wekaness I'm afraid is. Hopeless.
A few winters back I was however able to wear heels in January and February due to the mild weather and dry streets and it made me feel happy and seem sain, but the two past years have been like winters were when I was a kid : cold, snowy and very very long.
Would it be considered a little vain or maybe even desperate to move to another warmer part of the world only to be able to actually use all the shoes in ones wardrobe? "Honey, leave your job and sell your property, we need to change continent so I can wear my shoes all year round."
What can I do - what cold I have done in this case? Surely every woman needs a pair of leopard shoes!
And one can never say no to beautifully shaped heels. (Or pretty stockings either, but that's another story.)
But you do know what this little splurge means now don't you? - I'll have to sell away some of the shoes I haven't worn enough or that does not fit me well enough! These ones and this pair for example. Stay tuned over at my auction blog; I will post some items during the week to come!
