list day 5: shoe essentials

We've already established the fact that I love shoes. I'm not really sure how many pairs I have at this point, but it's a lot. I think back in November when I was organizing, I had about 75 pairs.

That, of course, was before my January shoe-shopping spree that caused me to cut myself off for a couple months!

Anyway, I'm not counting. I'm just here today to give a list of my top ten essential shoes, to accompany my top ten clothing essentials.


  1. Neutral flats that can go with everything
    For me, I need both black and brown, in both casual and more dressy styles. So item one is at least four pairs for me. Then you add in silver, bronze, patterned, etc. Time to stop counting!
  2. Tall boots
    Again, both black and brown. Again, I have two pairs of each -- dressy and casual!
  3. Ankle boots
    See a trend? I have black flat casual, black kitten heel, chocolate brown, medium brown and black patent.
  4. Black heels
    To go with that little black dress. Of course, these can also be red or gold or silver or ...
  5. Comfortable shoes you can walk for a long time in
    You shouldn't be wearing heels when taking your in-laws sightseeing. I like a pair of non-athletic sneakers for this, as long as they have enough arch support. Occasionally I'll use an old pair of running shoes, but that's not very stylish!
  6. Canvas skimmers
    Something a little more casual for spring and summer. Of course I'm in love with my Keds "Eleanor" series. I've got four pairs (so fun!), plus two pairs in neutral shades.
  7. Flip-flops
    For the beach, pool, and casual summer outings.
  8. Dress sandals
    I like heels with fun-colored straps and wedges, but I've also got black wedges.
  9. Casual sandals
    Like leather slides. I've got brown, black and navy.
  10. Something impractical that adds personality
    Perhaps my multi-color polka dotted wedges, gold peep-toes or red patent heels.

So with a little creativity, I can fit all 80+ pairs into this top ten essential list, right?

I'm going shopping in Vancouver this weekend. I might just print this top ten list and use it as a reference :)

I really like your blog, I feel we have a common love from your blog. I hope you can make friends with me generously. I think a good pair of shoes as my faithful friend, so I always find the most suitable and favorite shoes, if you agree with my view, you can look at my site.
