Have you ever sipped champagne out of your shoes? My friend Tami has (but she said they were new 🙂 and if you saw her shoe collection, you would completely understand!!
I arrived at her apartment the other day and walked into her bedroom to see all her flats stacked vertically in a large champagne bucket! Storage is at a premium in her bedroom, and since necessity is the mother of invention, she came up with this brilliant plan! I had to take a photo especially because she had the flowered ones at the front! Adorable or what!
Now that I’m talking about shoes I have a confession. I have never had a shoe fetish (like most women I know) until I became so heavily involved in the colour business (especially now that I have a colour blog!). People expect me to show up wearing colour.
Since I live, breathe, and dream in colour, I have finally figured it out! You can wear the clothes I’ve just mentioned and look perfectly stylish and classy, but picture the same outfit with a blue t-shirt?
Not so great unless I have shoes with blue or some jewelry with blue or something else on that repeats the colour I’m wearing. If you look at expensively dressed women wearing colour, that’s what makes the difference! And this explains why my friend Tami aways looks so pulled together, she has shoes to go with everything!
Not like that’s a big rule, but notice how you can seem to be able to throw on a black sweater, jeans and black heels and be perfectly at home anywhere but it’s not always so easy when wearing colour? That’s my experience anyway. And this is my own little theory, not like I claim to be a fashion expert by any stretch.
But to make a short story long, I’m here to tell you that I now have a shoe fetish (just like everyone else I’m finally in the shoe club!) I see shoes in my colours on sale, I snap them up!
