Thoughts of a Shoe Slut

I hate spending a lot of money on clothes. I have never been a clothes horse. Possibly the most expensive garment I ever bought was my dress for my second wedding — a gorgeous romantically lacy thing from April Cornell, for a whopping $225 plus tax. HOWEVER. Shoes are the one thing I will spend money on. Not just any shoes, though. My shoes must be, first of all, COMFORTABLE. I cannot stand to have my feet hurting, so you will never see a pair of half-a-block Manolos or Jimmy Choos anywhere my feet. Then, they need to be cute. Sometimes that means so-clunky-ugly-they're-cute shoes. Sure, I could find and wear little-old-lady comfortable shoes, but why should I when I CAN find feel-good-look-good shoes? My favorites, the old reliables: Dansko stapled clogs — I can wear 'em all day. Birkenstock sandals and clogs My latest find: Simple "Eez-Off" perforated clogs, in BLUE (which they call "Cadet Gray" for some silly reason) — oooh, cushy goodness! and GREEN ("Laurel Green") — soooo comfy! I am currently lusting after some of the new Dansko shoes from the Beacon Hill and Hamption collections…. I many not have as many pairs of shoes as some self-professed shoe sluts (I probably have around 15 pairs, covering the whole year, that I wear on a regular basis), but let's just say that I'm establishing a whole new way to approach the subject. Then there are jeans, but that's another topic…
