Shoe Challenge Excuses


Since I am rather preoccupied with the job hunt, I did not snap any pics of my outfits yet, just managed to wear some shoes. I just want to indicated that I have worn these shoes and will be sure to take photos eventually (after all the tension is gone).

Here are the shoes that I wore.

Converse sneakers (seen here)…what can be easier, right? 🙂 Wore them to the shop.

Bronx brown knee boots (seen here). Wore them on Valentine’s day while visiting my in laws. How romantic…well to be frank, I do not give a crap about that pink/red/card/flower/candy/slutty underwear day. I had a couple of glasses of good wine and a relaxing evening in cozy environment.

Bronx ankle boots (seen here). Since I am mostly at home, my main exercise is grocery shopping. Wore these to get some stuff for dinner. They are so damn loud. In the town itself is no biggie – noise level cancels them out. But in our quiet street and on the way to the shop it is like there is nothing else left in the universe, but the noise these shoes make oO. I still love them, they’ve been with me for about 4 years now.

Asos Totally Suede ankle boots(seen here). My current favorites. My feet are rather wide, so the round toes are just a perfect fit (gives enough space to squeeze my relatively large feet in) and the laces allow perfect adjustment for my high arches. (I am just so special with my wide feet and high arches oO). Anyway, the shoes are damn comfortable. I had walked in them all day and was not tired at all. And the craziest is, I got them for a ridiculous discount :).

My Challenge in Shoe Challenge


I flipped through the collections of the shoes that ladies already submitted to the Shoe Challenge. It is interesting to analyze, what women wear and how their shoe collections are shaped. Is it mostly pumps, colourful shoes or a bunch of flats. Everyone’s personality and preferences are visible. Nosy me 🙂

Here are my shoes. 21 pairs in total (minus running shoes, flip flops and similar non footwear and of course my wedding shoes).

Quite a mess frankly. I still have doubts about a few pairs, but if I do not squeeze them through the challenge, will not be much of an issue to get rid of them anyway. My Grandma and Mom always appreciate my hand-me-downs.

I noticed that many participants have quite a huge amount of shoes…My collection looks quite pathetic in comparison. But my challenge will be not just wear the shoes during that one year. I am facing another issues – I have several pairs of shoes which served only one purpose – office wear. So there are two options: either I start to act my age and wear more serious shoes while grocery shopping or hope for a job offer which will make my life (and that of my husband’s) easier in SOOOOOOOOooo many ways 😀
