SHOEGAZM

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!

It's very difficult to find shoes with such a gorgeous shape, as the ones you so frequently wear, here in the US! Are there any good shoe website you know of? Shoes make any outfit:)

Ditto, shoes and underwear are a consistent obsession.

I do agree that every woman needs a pair of leaopard print shoes but I have come to unfortunate conclusion that one can have too many pairs of shoes - so I've gotten rid of loads of mine. Then again, some people collect useless porcelain ornament, some stamps - yours at lest is something pretty :)

Everytime I see another post on your blog, it feels like a little suprise. Something which hasn't anything to do with the boring daily stuff (work, cleaning etc), so thank you! :)

Makes me want to buy leopard print shoes :) I wish i could wear those *sigh*

Rakel said...

Haha, so funny! I've just written a post about shoes which will due tomorrow. Why can't we get enough shoes? :)
Love the leopard ones, and the black ones, ok love them both! :D

Oj, nuo leopardit on niiiin ihanat että niiden takia melkeen kannattais muuttaa ulkomaille!

Diva said...

Yep, shoes are my weakness, even though I don´t wear my heels often

Usually Comatose said...

Ahah, it has long been my dream in life to own a walk-in cupboard full of shoes :)
The leopard print heels are especially beautiful.

Oooo! Love love love these! And the stockings are pretty smashing too! Very sexy.

The Retro Natural said...

I LOVE them! I need a leopard print pair, those are just sooo fantastic!

I've tried to deny my love of shoes but it's there..I'd purchase 20 pairs this evening if I had the dough!

I'd love to see your sweetheart's face after you told him you wanted to move in order to wear all your shoes!

I have the same feeling about shoes. My sister calls it a disease..

But I can't help it... The right shoes are like the cherry on top of a sundae. It makes the whole difference!

And, come on... You work at the harbor, you freelance, you have your Eddi, your home (and the country house), you burlesque and you have a little kid you help with what you can afford..
You can have some more shoes in a while/always.. haha!

oh goodness, I wouldn't have been able to resist those either..

Portland Ninkasi said...

Shoes make the gal! I am rapidly approaching 100 pair, and I have no shame!

Sonja said...

Åh så snygga! Jag gillar strumbyxorna också, du får skriva ett inlägg om dem också ;).

Kadri said...

Hi, where did you get the black ones from? Which store? I live in Tallinn and would love those.
CHeers,

Haluaisin kysyä sinulta yhtä juttua, mutta en saa s-postiasi esiin, koska käytän vain nettipostia. Voisitko laittaa viestiä: kissa_matroskin AT yahoo.com

The black ones are lush! I'm a hopeless shoe buyer, too. I even try not to go to the city, because I know I'll come back with a pair of shoes, mostly black shoes. I've put myself on a black shoe curfew though, every colour of shoes is allowed to buy, but no black ones.

I agree that every woman needs a pair of leopard shoes. That's why I spent a lot of time last week looking for (and finding!) a pair! :) Pretty funny to read this and notice that I'm not the only one with new leopard shoes, hah! :)

Håller visserligen inte med dig om leopardskor, men de sista svarta var supersnygga! :)
