I Heart Shoes


Free People Clothing Boutique_Strappy Chains Heel

—Mr. Liverpool thinks I  have too many pairs of shoes. 

I say a woman can never have enough. 

Never.    Ever.   Nope.   Not in this lifetime, Babe.

So while he’s at  his soccer game, I gather up all my shoes to place on the coffee table-

…..and took this photo.

When he walks in the front door, he says— “Hooooly Shit!  How much did you spend today, Kim?”

I  smile.

I’ll just let him sweat a while…..

–Dear, Reader,   do you think you can EVER have too many pairs of shoes?

    I’ve gotten rid of some of my “hooker shoes” because they are a little too much at my advanced age. After giving said “hooker shoes” to various charities (well, maybe they will make the girls who select them earn a bit more), I still have over 60 pairs. No, you never have too many shoes. Not a chance!

    You tell Mr. Liverpool, that this is your hobby. I’m sure he has a hobby, but there’s nothing sweeter than your own shoe collection. And as with any collection, this one needs to keep growing! I heart shoes, too!

    I am not a shoe person….don’t hate me! I heart flip-flops and have quite a few pairs. Other than that, I have a pair of brown and black winter shoes, blue, burgundy, brown and black pumps (1″ heels, all the same type) and a pair of brown CROCS.

    My friends said I can’t wear the crocs out with them any more because they’re ugly. Fortunately, they’re the friends who can get away with saying that. They keep wanting to buy me shoes, but they’ll just sit in the closet and I’ll wear my flip flops. They ARE shoe people!

    ….still love me?

    You’ve been to my blog enough to know that I am, however, a hopeless purse whore. I need to do the coffee table round up and take a picture for you.

    I have lots of sandals and some shoes (the requisite flats and heels, but nothing too fancy here). I have very wide feet so shoes don’t always fit me well and I like to be comfortable. I seem to be collecting boots… and I’m anxiously awaiting boot season because I have a new pair I can’t wait to wear.
    Since taking up running, I also loves me some sneakers… I have to keep myself in check when I’m in the running shoe aisles these days. They come in such pretty colors!!!

    Kim, why don’t I see the pair in the first picture in your collection? I am with you on this – can never have too many pairs of shoes, or too many clothes.

    Or. Too. Many. Friends!

    Just three days back I went and bought 5 pairs.

    Yet I wear a pair of red sports shoes most of the time, thanks to all the walking. 😀

    I have bought a pair of shoes before with nothing to wear with them – just one of those pairs you CANNOT be without! I eventually got something to wear them with!
    If the shoes in the picture equal the total sum of shoes you have then (sorry Mr. Liverpool) no, you don’t have too many – you see, boots just take up more space which makes it seem like there are a lot in the cupboard.
    Did I sound convincing enough…

    Really Kim? Only I tiny table of shoes? I think you and I need to get over to Nordstrom asap! And to answer your question about too many shoes, that’s like asking a man if he can have too much sex! Which brings me to my next point. Shopping makes me happy. Happy me equals sex for hubby. So shoes really sort of equal sex for hubby. (As do clothes and handbags. Jewelry is really really GOOD sex) Do you think Mr. Liverpool will buy that?

My heels & boots are temp packed away – oh how I miss them – but there is no place for them in this house, yet.

I do have to share with him but he doesn’t take up much room – cowboy boots, slacks, shirts & a few suits! OOoo, I am gonna have fun! Oh, to answer the question… what was the question?

    Kim, don’t hate me when I tell you I’m not gaga over shoes.Sure, I can enjoy a great pair of boots, but other than that, it’s all the same to me. That said, the only shoe designer who has the power to make my heart sing is Chie Mihara. Oh my goodness! If only I could afford just one pair! I swoon every time I see her collections! Do you like her shoes?

    A girl can never have enough shoes. When I got pregnant my shoe size changed. So many of my friends never went back to their original shoe size post-delivery. I got so sad that I wouldn’t be able to wear my shoes! Luckily I did go back!
