Like many women, I love shoes. OK, strike that, I obsess about shoes. There’s just something about picking out a new pair of saucy strappy wedges that sends my heart for a loop-di-loop. Make no mistake – I understand that being passionately involved with the thought of a new pair of spectator heels is ridiculously shallow. It’s just that I can’t help myself. It’s beyond my control. You know when you see those photo shoots of movie stars’ houses, and they reveal these bedroom-sized walk-in closets that are solely for shoe storage, and there are like a million and five pairs of Louboutins stacked toe to toe, all the way up to the ceiling? I lust for that. I don’t want the Louboutins, though. I want a little of everything, and most of the shoes I want are actually quite affordable. The thing is, most of the shoes that I want aren’t made to go with jeans and a t-shirt. They’re made to be paired with cute dresses and skirts, maybe some fun bright tights, or even shorts. I don’t really wear any of those anymore. Not since my legs stopped looking fab. That’s why this post is all about the shoes that I adore, and how they keep me motivated to try harder and work longer on getting my legs into strut-worthy shape.
I think that maybe I’ll be buying myself this last pair as my prize for reaching 155. I haven’t been this excited about a pair of shoes since those black platform wedges I wore to the 10th grade Military Ball…and those were a doozy. I BEGGED for those shoes. My inner teenager is just starting to whine about these, right now. Guess I better tell her to get her butt in gear and lay off of the Lays, huh?
