A Shoe Meme

My best bloggy friend Mannequin of Fractured Toy asked her readers to show their top ten shoes. I am in no way a shoe horse. I generally find a pair of shoes I like and wear them until they can't be worn anymore. But I do have shoes in my closet that I adore, so here we go.

These are wedges that I love. DKNY. On sale of course. Maybe I paid $35.00 bucks for them. Yeah, I deal like that. Bargain babe all the way. I've had these beauties for about 3 years.


These are the shoes that I wore to my wedding. Unconventional color but they are comfy and purple/lavender is my favorite color.



Here are a pair of hiking boots that are practically brand new. I know that they are five years old but I have only worn them a couple of times. I thought hiking was going to be a new form of exercise for me but that didn't last long at all. I still think they are cute and maybe I can find some trails to try them out on here.

These are my sexy shoes. Their time is up and they need to be retired. I may not wear them again but I have good memories attached to them so they continue to reside in my closet.



Here are a pair of shoes that fall into the "very unlike me but perfectly matched an outfit so I purchased them anyway" category. Very cute with a nice pair of jeans.



A pair of gladiators from a couple of years ago. I still like them.





These shoes were made for walking. Despite the heel they are pretty comfy - at least for short periods of time.











Here are a pair of boots that have seen me thru a few winters.


















And these are my all time favorites. Love them. Wait, you don't understand. LOVE THEM!!!! These shoes are almost 7 years old. A gift for Christmas 2001. Absolute favorite. They are sexy and suit my personality but if it were up to me would never have left the store. Because really, how often do you wear a pair of boots with five inch heels? Not very often. I wear these babies maybe once a year.




And finally my road dogs. These are the sandals that have gotten me through this summer. Comfy. Describes them completely.



You can play along too. What do your shoes say about you?

Look at you lady. You have a pair of shoes for every occasion. I must say I am a bit envious of your "very unlike me but perfectly matched an outfit so I purchased them anyway" shoes, lol. They are super cute!

I feel you about getting the wear out of shoes. I am constantly trying to convince myself that my toe ain't about to come outta the front of my favorite pair of sneakers, lol.

I love your boots and the tiedye blue ones as well. I love seeing peoples shoes as I think it really says a lot about them. When I would date I used to always look at a guy's shoes (not for the monetary value or anything) but to get an idea of their personality. I am a shoe horse and weird I know.

I am totally doing this meme tomorrow as soon as I open my eyes! I love shoes, love love love them! They are boxed, categorized and cared for 'round here. They are family! *giddy over shoe-talk*

Beadsme said...

Mmmm Shoes. I lurve shoes.

mannequin said...

Oh Renee....You have beautiful shoes!! I agree with health nut wannabe mom; shoes just tell SO much about a person. They're really a very personal item, you know?
I LOVE your "sexy" shoes and your gladiators. I just canNOT wear shoes that are not comfortable, I'm just not going to do it.
Thank you so much dear friend for playing along, I was SO hoping to get a peek in your closet! When you *forced us* into taking a picture of ourselves "just as we are", it was so liberating that I wondered if I was brave enough to show the world my shoes. The thanks goes to you.

Raquel said...

Wow, what a nice shoes collection you have. It's for all seasons.

angie said...

I LOVE your favorite boots too. However, I cannot do 4-5" heels, even for a few minutes. My back instantly aches. Must be poor posture.

Maternal Mirth said...

If your sexy shoes ever get bored and want to come out of the closet, I have a pair of tootsies that have a crush on them and would soooooo take them out on the town :)

BloomingAlmond said...

My shoes would say I'm tired and old... And needing new ones! lol

I don't know how I found your blog... But what a lovely blog you have!
That pic of you w/ your baby is sooooo cute... :) What a great smile!

Natalie said...

Wow, you have a lot of fun shoes!

Mrs. Brownstone @ XBOX Wife said...

You have some AWESOME shoes! It looks like you take great care of them, too!

Keep It Classy, Jen said...

Love your shoes...def going to do this meme when i get out of car from a TEN HOURS drive

just me... said...

oh how I love shoes...

oh how I miss real pretty shoes...

oh how I hate wearing cowboy boots and running shoes all the da** time.

I live in some funky Pumas that I should probably toss (sure they stink)... miss my heels... but who needs 4" heels when the only eyes that see how cute they make my calves look are the cows????

Thanks Renee for the cool post-

DaniGirl said...

What a fun meme! Just dropping by to say hello here, and had to tell you that I love your blog design. Nice to "meet" you today!

Solei said...

I'm luving your 5 inch heel boots. Way too cute, but just to sit in. I wouldn't want to be walking for too long in those things!!! Ouch!
=0D

CaraBee said...

That is great! I love your taste in shoes, very similar to mine. I must have 100 pairs of shoes but I find myself wearing the same 2 or 3 pairs day after day. Frustrates the husband to no end.

shimumsy said...

i love shoes too. i like the shoes you wore on your wedding. it can be worn on jeans too. perfect! from formal to casual.

ParentingPink said...

Lovely shoes! Every girl should have several pairs! Oh, I also like the ones you wore to your wedding - pretty color!

Joanie said...

Is it sad that I don't have ten pairs of shoes? It is, isn't it?

I'm starting a shoe fund. Forget rent and food! I need new shoes.

Melissa said...
