I, like most women I know, own a lot of shoes. Not the kind that Imeda Marcus owned, but more than 30. I will admit that for some unknown reason that I have not been able to figure out, love shoes. Maybe it is because unlike other things you wear shoes for the most part can be worn in a fat stage and in a thin stage. I will also admit that I have several that I haven't worn for a long time. I rarely come across a pair that is stylish AND comfortable but this morning while I was dressing I found a pair that I had gotten some time ago which are both. I immediately put them on.
For the last few years I have been getting out of the habit of wearing heels. Now that I am working in a very casual office, I don't really have the need to wear pumps. I had some that were wicked good looking, but I can't go dancing in them. I guess as you get older the ability to teeter around in those skinny heels is lost. Because I am relatively tall anyway, I never really got into the habit of wearing anything higher than 3 inches anyway and I probably own maybe one pair. But, I really do miss the ability to wear them because they used to make me feel sexy and powerful.
I will probably never really understand why women love shoes even though I am a woman and I fall into that category. To me a good pair of shoes makes my day. It is a mystery that my obsession with shoes continues to this day. But it does and I will just deal with it.
