I have to admit, my weakness is still for accessories- purses, jewelry, scarfs. Redecorating the house also gets me every time. I see an accent piece I like and everything goes downhill from there!

Dianne, I'm getting there. I've bought more shoes this past year than ever. I discovered it yesterday when a niece was here from out of town and needed brown sandals to wear to the big family wedding. I told her not to run out and buy them. I had three options right off the bat. Yikes!

Well, Dianne,
You have me on your list of shoes fans . I have two pair of white sandals and three pair of black sandals and not sure why I did not and got all on sale . I do get in on those sales and get bargins . I got a handbag for church today a Liz bag for seven dollars on sale . I did get rid of a lot of old shoes .

Dianne , I don't dare to count the shoes yet . I have shoe boxes and have to label them next . I do need a pair of white shoes for white dress pants though .

Renee

I'll say it again...books! And I'm afraid I have my oldest son doing the same thing. I have got to get that boy to the library which is where we spent many hours when he was a teeny thing. I remember waling home from the library with the double stroller, the two little one in it, him hanging on, and books falling out of the bin on the bottom. Fun memories.

Renee, try light brown instead. They will look much better than white on white.

I threw away my French tennis shoes as I needed a new pair. One in--one out. They were ultra modern so it was hard to do.

Yes, Dianne, you got me too, like Dotsie said above, I have purchased more shoes this year than any other. Of course, my shoes on not haute coture French fansies, but rather Clark's! I like the brand, which is sensible. The truth is that my feet do not like shoes. I was more of the buffalo sandals kind of flower child, so I could go barefoot or flip flop around town. But lately, if I like a pair of shoes and they don't kill my feet, I buy two pairs in 2 different colors.

Can you afford me? LOL!

Remember that your shoes should be half a shade or one shade darker than the hem or your dress or pants. Since the feet (and palms of your hands) are considered the ugliest parts of the body, draw attention away from them unless the shoes are so sexy you want people to notice. I have a few pair like that!
