As someone who is in between clothes sizes and has an irritatingly not-right-for-any-store kind of curvy, petite figure, it's probably no surprise that my biggest vice is shoes. I'm scared to count how many I actually own, but I think around the 300 mark wouldn't be an entirely OTT estimate. What's more important than the number, though (back me up here), is the fact that I get lots of wear out of almost all of the footwear I have bought over the years. I religiously get new pieces seen to by a cobbler (key to getting rubber soles put into leather soles for example, as your shoes will last longer), and I try to ensure that I buy only comfy heels, which means there are a lot of midi and kitten heels in my repertoire. I don't mind buying high street (although I know now where to go for the best quality affordable shoes), but I'm more likely to invest bigger bucks into a pair of designer boots than I am an It bag any day of the week.
So if you're a fellow shoe fanatic this is the shopping gallery to keep checking in on. Scroll to shop the shoes—from sandals to mules, courts to boots—I'm buying/obsessing over/adding to my wishlist…
