I’m a shopaholic. I’m sure some of you can sympathize with me when I say, “shoes are a necessity.” It is true! You NEED shoes – you don’t NEED other things. Shoes are that one thing that immediately overrides my shopper’s guilt as the devil on my shoulder quickly convinces me that they are worth more than my first born child. As the proud owner of well over 75 pairs, I should probably stop but – to me – shoes are what complete an outfit. Although I am usually spotted in a pair of riding boots or my Sperry top-siders, my closet is a mecca of shoe porn, from spiked red sling backs to blue suede pumps and even a few pairs of sequined Toms. Excuse me as I give myself props for diversity!
To be honest, I am a pretty boring dresser; when I add a unique pair of shoes to my wardrobe I feel a little bit less lame (perhaps this shoe obsession is a coping mechanism?). Luckily I am not the only one out there looking for quirky shoes to spice up their closet because the Fashion Institute of Technology’s new “Shoe Obsession” exhibit is all the rage in NYC (BRB — booking my Amtrak ticket — yikes, it closes this coming Saturday!).
The collection definitely screams, “A Night in NYC with Lady Gaga” but when you are wearing shoes this hot there is no such thing as a BAD ROMANCE…except maybe the one with your bank….
Here are a few of my favorites! (somebody hide my credit card before it is too late!)
