‘Class of 2010′ – my shoe purchases from last year

Christine‘s Babes- Lanvin, Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin

Shoe-venirs from Milan – snakeskin walking boots, Jil Sander patent flats, Jil sander suede wedges, Fendi boots

Repettos from the boutique and my Karla Špetic clogs: these are my work shoes, the 4 most comfortable shoes of 2010

Online friends- Diana Broussard from Luisaviaroma (the cause of all the scars on my feet…),  Marc Jacobs from the Outnet

Love at First Sight: Miu Miu patent flats from Miu Miu Chadstone’s sale, vintage flats I haven’t worn yet

The reason for this post is not to show off my shoe collection, but to help me come to grips with my shoe addiction. In 2010, I became unemployed (and self-employed) for the first time in my life, but the reality didn’t hit me until now. Yes I am s-l-o-w. I couldn’t understand why hubby wasn’t encouraging when I wanted to buy this or that pair from here and there, he knows how much I love shoes! Everytime a sale came on, be it at Net-a-Porter, Luisaviaroma, Browns, Christine’s, Marais or Miu Miu (my top 6 shopping lust-anations), I would be ready to burn some non-existent cash. The human heart is not satisfied easily.

It was only after I got out all the shoes I bought in 2010, that I realised – I have enough. I am so thankful for a husband who puts up with his wife’s spendings and addictions, and has held me back without being controlling. I’m not even going to count how many shoes there are. But I know one thing, I have enough shoes to last me at least for 2011. And too bad the blog name Sea of Shoes is taken :P

Do you have an addiction? Or should I say, who doesn’t?
