I’ve always kind of liked the infographics in magazines and on blogs, so I had a go at creating one myself which shows just how the contents of my shoe racks add up!
I’ve written about my relationship with shoes before. It’s a lifelong love affair that will never end. I still have the memory of the very first pair of heels I persuaded my mother to buy me for school nearly fifteen years ago. They were a pair of clunky black lace up brogues with a three inch chunky heel. Then a few years later, I managed to get my first pair of stilettoes past her. A pair of black ankle boots with fringing on them. I probably wouldn’t look twice at a pair like that these days but they were very well worn and loved. So well worn that I must have had the reheeled at least four of five times during their lifetime.
Today, I don’t have to ask my mother’s permission to buy a new pair of heels, or seek her approval – so I buy any and all the shoes I love! I might be a flat shoe lover at heart but really, a pretty pair of heeled court shoes are rather fabulous too. Indeed, I even have two pairs of heels that are jsut too high to be at all possible to walk in, but I will never throw them out because they are simply too beautiful.
How many pairs of shoes to you own? How does the maths add up on your rack?
