Shoeaholic

Hi My Name is Ela...and I am a Shoeaholic.
I'm feeling mighty guilty about snagging some shoes late last year and earlier this year that I still haven't worn.

Seeing as the first step to changing is to admit you have a problem, I decided to share them with you...sorry, I'm not giving them away,
I just mean sharing with a post :)

Nude Booties - Zara
(because I thought I would wear them with everything)


Grey Boots - Zara
(because they're versatile - love that you can fold over the brown lining)

Brown Sandals I adore - LAMB
(because they're scrumptious)


Gladiators - Modern Vintage
(died for the metallic snakeskin and studs)


Navy Patent Ballerinas - Juicy Couture
(because I had an obessession with navy...and gold)

Patent Mary Janes - Tahari
(because they were blue...and the buttons called my name)


'Deluth' Sandals - Jessica Simpson
(fell in love with the zippers)



'Pttika' Rhinestone Buckle Kitten Heels - Nine West
poor things are not so photoghenic but are quite cute on
(got distracted by the sparkle)


Sequins, Rhinestones and Bows
(because they're fun)



'Betsie' Sandals - Arturo Chiang
again...much cuter on
(fell for the studs and zipper)


Brown Leather Pumps - Coach
if they look familiar, it's cause I have them in black patent, which I
do wear
(comfy, classic and needed brown)

Patent Platforms - Zara
(um, just because)


In case you were wondering,
NO...my husband doesn't know.
Apparently he doesn't read my blog...only the comments, so...

It's one thing to buy a lot of shoes,
but a completely different story to buy shoes and not wear them.
Seriously, there's gotta be a cure.
Do YOU buy things and not wear them?

I will be wearing them, just haven't had the chance...or sorry, made the effort.

Just one more thing before I go...
Shoe Lust

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

  6. Adore those LAMB and Jessica Simpsons pairs! Unfortunately men will never get our love/lust for shoes... If I could I'd buy loads of them. For now, I modestly live with what I lovingly picked over the years. xxx

  8. I used to do this to- ALL of the time! I would still be buying and collecting, without wearing, if I wasn't a student with zero dollars to my name. But all of the shoes you shared are AMAZING- you will wear them someday and you will look fabulous when you do! I am so jealous of your shoe closet!

  20. Sorry, too many typos so that's why I had to delete my first comment. Love all of your shoes - they are hot and love your shoe style. :)

  21. Wow, great haul, but I can't believe you've never worn them! Especially the boots... I think I'd definitely be wearing the first two constantly! I do admit though, with heels, I've had some I've only worn once and one pair I've never worn. I just can't walk in them all day and I buy more heels than I have occasions to wear them to... especially as even the fanciest restaurants these days aren't that formal. I also have two Lanvin flats I haven't worn yet, because I like to have a cobbler put a sole on them first and I keep procrastinating. I hope you do end up wearing some of the above though... they're too gorgeous to keep in your closet ;-)

    Oh and re: the award... yes, you pass it on to a certain number of blogs. I just happened to choose 5, and the bloggers before me seemed to have chosen random numbers, so I'd just say choose as many as you want! And you totally deserve it... I love reading your blog :)

  22. I have purchased shoes and wear it only once. i should do a post and join you as a cured shoeaholic.

    ReplyDelete
  23. oh! i can relate! i have so many things that i have not worn yet. i found 3 pairs of brand new/unworn shoes last week!

    i love the 'Deluth' Sandals and hope you get to wear them soon! :)

    p.s. i think that mojito pops recipe would still work without alcohol. maybe lemonade instead?

  24. haha cute post, and so many pairs of pretty heels! Ugh I have so much stuff that I bought and still havent' taken off the tag or wear yet...
