Open Toe Shoes – My Obsession



I kind of hinted yesterday that I have an obsession with open toe shoes. By the end of this post you will see how true that is. In fact, some of you may start thinking about an intervention! Please don’t! I love my shoes!

As you know, the Fashion Mister calls me his wife the centipede. He’s not exactly correct. Looking at all the great open toe shoes available for Spring got me thinking about my open toe shoes. So I got them all out and took a few pictures.

I have to admit, I go back and forth between thinking this is crazy lady stuff to embarrassed at how many I have to actually being able to justify every single pair. The crazy lady and embarrassed stuff all happened when I was first laying them all out…but now in my head I’m thinking 16 pair of open toe shoes really isn’t that bad!

After all, three pair are sandals that only get worn in the summer when I have to put a shoe on but would rather be barefoot. The Navy satin, Glamour Puss heels were purchased because they are a perfect match for a fantastic retro style dress I had made a few years ago, I’ll probably get rid of the black cork heel wedges because the toe is too tight which makes them uncomfortable if I wear them all day and the green 9 West heels with the brown ankle wrap have been in the wardrobe for nearly 8 years, so long they have become fashionable! The brown suede look wedges were purchased on sale for $15! See, it becomes so easy to justify an obsession.

Really, I could come up with 16 reasons why I have this many shoes…but I won’t bore you. What I love best about the wedges is that even though some of them are insanely high, I can still wear them to work because they are comfortable and very easy to walk in. Wouldn’t do me any good to break and ankle while at work in the hospital!

So, if you are still thinking about that intervention…STOP! It won’t work. It’s been tried before and all 12 step programs say you have to acknowledge that you have a problem…and I don’t! Or at least will never admit it here with all these witnesses!
