Days of Grace

Shoes, shoes & more shoes

Ah hmmmm…I have quite a collection of shoes and sandals. Someone said that I have a former first lady’s disease…shoe fetish. Nooooo…not even close at all.  I prefer to say that it’s a hobby!  😛 But I have to admit I am drawn like a magnet to a shoe shop when I do see one (just browsing and trying on are also fun! 😛 ). 

Below is a collection of my ‘hobby’….Ta daa!!! 😀

Almost pink loafer!  Very comfy.

I looked up the dictionary and found out that loafers are known as moccasin (Northern American influence) or suede (the material used).

My one and only open-toed slight heeled slip-on.

White pair low heels!

My ‘excuse’ for getting this pair of white colored shoes was my ‘small’ role as a nurse in a play! (Legitimate reason right for purchasing? :P)

A shoe having a wedge-shaped heel joined to a half sole so as to form a continuous undersurface.  This is wedgie!

This pair is more than 5 years of age...Hush Puppies.  Speaks much for its quality!

This wedgie is definitely made for walking!...doesn't 'bite' anywhere even after hours of walking 🙂

Next….open toed flat pumps and sling-backed flats and heels!

(

'Glossy teal'! The color and style were the bait la! This is one 'fall in love at first sight' buy...the strap bites though if too much walking is done 😦

Shiny-grey opened-toed flats.  Attracted by design, quite comfy but the plastic material at the top-front does cause perspiration.

Shiny-grey opened-toed flat pumps. Attracted by design also, quite comfy but the plastic material at the top-front does cause perspiration.

Errr...this one is a mistake!

Errr...this one was a mistake! Uncomfortable...can't remember why I bought it!

P and most of all the price!  Bought from Vincci...so didn't cost a bomb!  Hee hee!

Yet another pair that attracted me with its design...casual and chic. Love the color combination, the style, the height, the...everything la actually 😛 and most of all the price! Bought from Vincci...so didn't cost a bomb! Hee hee!

Sling-backed heels!

Quite an elegant pair of heel!  To me anything with heel aren't for casual wear!

An 'old' pair of sling-backed heels. When I said 'old', it is old. 😛

Sandals are high and flat heeled, strappy shoes that have no fully closed area.

Gold colored sandal!

This is one of my favorite...selected by one of my sons! Good taste ya? 🙂

This is Elle...one of the more expensive sandal, my second pair of Elle, the first pair was so worn out and restored too many that I couldn't repair anymore so no picture of that 😦

Another quite pricey pair, love it...again its the design that I fell in love with.

Hee hee, by now most of you would have noticed my preferred design 😀

Another black high-heeled sandal.

This pair of bronze sandal is getting looser with each wear...sob sob

Latest addition!  Just bought yesterday...hee hee!

The high heeled pumps…I only wear them for formal occasions.

My formal footwear are all in blacks...in fact most of my shoes are.

Fairly new pair of pumps...worn less than 10 times, sshhh.

Very comfortable, quite pricey maroon flat pumps.

Very comfortable, quite pricey maroon casual flat pumps. Supposedly made in Spain.

None of my shoes cost more Rm200 a pair!  Seriously!  😀  Not even my 2 pairs of sports shoes of which I didn’t take any pictures.

Not too big a collection right?  I am sure many out there have bigger collection but just don’t blog about them.  Not that I want to brag blog about my splurging,  just wanted to share my ‘passion’ with friends and readers! 🙂

P/s  sorry about the hap-hazard placements of the pictures.  Still learning how to manage that 😦  Sorry to the guys too…this is ladies stuff, but please feel free to leave comments!
