My biggest shopping weakness is shoes…specifically heels. It’s a good thing I’m not rich because it hampers how much I can spend on footwear. But even if I did have a lot of money, I wouldn’t have as much as Christina Aguilera…that’s just excessive!
This year, I’m capping my shoe collection at 30 and the maximum price I’d spend for a pair is $200. Also, for every new shoe purchased afterward, it will hold to the “one in, one out” rule. Hopefully this will curb my addiction to shoes while making me more wary of the kind of shoes I purchase.
My shoe collection can be categorized into three categories:
- Cheap: below $30 – mostly sandals and “trendy, disposable” shoes from fast-fashion or discount stores
- Mid-Range: $40-100 – work appropriate or all-purpose footwear
- Expensive: above $100 – boots, designer shoes, and shoes that I’ll wear forever
In 2009, I definitely fulfilled my boot collection. My faves:
Le Petite Sperone boots
By the way, I keep seeing other bloggers and celebrities wearing the YSL tribute pumps…it makes me want to get them…but they’re way beyond my budget. Sigh. At first, I thought Jimmy Choos and Louboutins were my dream shoes, but they’ve somehow fell off the pedestal. Manolos are classic, but Valentinos are eternal.
Someday I’ll have those awesome heels…someday.
