Class of 2010

by cecylia on January 28, 2011

‘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?

Love the Jil Sander patent flats and the Marc Jacobs black and red heals

*drools* wow I love all of those! haha…it makes me wish I wasn’t so stingy with my cash and splurged every once in a while since I can XD
but yes, when I had no job this would have been very bad, haha…

Wow, so many gorgeous shoes! You sure do have a lot, and yes you probably have enough, but then again, you can never have too many shoes! I obviously have a shoe addiction, although I don’t buy many shoes…I just look.

oh yes, my addiction is shoes, and accessories, and clothes, and .. anything you can wear basically.. so it’s lucky I only really shop at op shops or make things myself. The downside of that is that I have acquired so much stuff and have nowhere to display it all! And not enough functions to wear it to!
At least I can enjoy nice new shoes vicariously through you!

cecylia January 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Ah I hear you, I wouldn’t dare show you my wardrobe- it’s both obese (too many things, from op shops and boutiques, and online splurge sites) and messy

ana January 28, 2011 at 6:25 pm
