A few weeks ago, I cleaned my closet out for spring. I was examining my shoe wardrobe, when I realized that I’ve worked myself into a footwear conundrum. It’s been close to two years since I’ve purchased a pair of warm weather shoes, and all of my spring shoe staples are completely worn out or totally worthless.
While I can have my nude open-toe pumps refurbished (the heel is damaged), my sandals, gold flats, black pumps, snakeskin pumps and wedges had to be trashed. I didn’t feel bad because some of these shoes are four to five years old, but now I need to replace them. All of them.
The six pairs of shoes above are what I’d like to have for the warm weather months. Grand total for all six? $1,143. Maybe I can sell a kidney?
I’ve never been much of a shoe shopper (I like clothes and jewelry more), but I need to be on the lookout for some new shoes. At the bare minimum, I need a pair of sandals, a pair of gold flats, black pumps and some snakeskin heels.
While I’ll probably try to spend $100 to $150 per pair, I need to choose quality basics if I want to be able to get another half-decade of wear out of my shoe wardrobe. Spend now, save later. I’m all about per wear cost.
I guess it’s time to look into Google Ads for all you freeloaders ladies reading this blog via the RSS feed. My shoe wardrobe demands it!
