How many pairs of shoes does a girl need?

Do you know how many pairs of shoes you own?  If you count them you may be in for a shock!  I have collected shoes over the years and some I can't bear to be parted from ........but others have been selected for  minor culls from time to time.

In my youth I would wear high stilettos despite being 5ft 8 inches which often took me over the height of my escorts.  My husband is taller than me but some of my shoes present a challenge.  He really loves to see me in high heels however.......

I realise that as I get older my ability to stand for long periods of time has diminished significantly and so the really high ones are reserved for special occasions.  I have invested in mid heels and also a set of flatties.....and the ones you can bend and carry in a handbag for emergency foot pain!

Having a shoe fettish is a very feminine thing and its interesting to see that no matter what your walk of life the appeal of fashionable shoes is irresistible.  There are some however who think this is sooooo superficial  and would never dream of succumbing ......good for them......... There was an article in the paper the other day from Professor Mary Beard highly intelligent lady who by her own admission is not really a fashionista.....but when it comes to shoes she can hold her own!

I decided to do a shoe audit recently and I was amazed how many pairs I have.....different heights, colours and appeal.  I house them mainly in perspex boxes so I can choose what I want for the day.

I have dabbled with most of the labels....Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Ferragamo, Zanotti, Miu Miu, Chanel - all of which I treasure...........

so how many pairs do I have?   ......I stopped counting at 70........  lust for shoes does not diminish with age!!!!
