lovelies, i need to confess that i have a shoe addiction.
the thing that gives me great strength, is knowing that i am not alone with my condition.
but at least i’ve come to admitting it. that’s the first step, isn’t it?

i honestly don’t know how many pairs of shoes i own. but i do know that it’s still in the double digits… i think… no, it is. maybe i should get down to counting them some day. but then again i might really freak out and recoil in horror at the sheer number of shoes that will be laying around the floor.
ah i dream of the day, when i can have a whole room just for my shoes. or a room big enough to fit my shoes and my clothes. just looking at some of the shoe closets of some celebrities makes me want my own even more!
take a look:

rachel zoe’s shoe closet

khloe kardashian’s shoe closet (that’s not even all of it!)

christina aguilera’s closet (home to about 750 pairs!)

just wow, right?
i can fit in my closet just about the shoes needed for spring/summer and fall/winter respectively. it has a couple of top shelves that are really high up, so i stow away the unseasonal ones up there. however, it is still a bit of a pain, because i do have to really wedge every pair in there, and stack them on top of eachother…  here is a picture of my closet during spring/summer. you can actually see my timberlands and winter sneakers in the top part, below and behind them are boots and uggs.

not much space left…

of course it doesn’t help that i wear a size 41- my shoes are by default quite big! that is probably a reason why i do have so many shoes, because my size is a bit harder to find, when i do spot one that fits, i pounce!
i made a bet with myself, that for the whole month of october i wouldn’t shop for anything. ruthlessly nothing. and you know what? i did it! i went an entire month without buying so much as a t-shirt, nothing! i rewarded myself by buying a pair of shoes in the first november week. bam!

so pretty, couldn’t just leave them. no.

now that i’ve shared my main addiction (yes, there’s a couple of minor ones that involve bags and jeans…), i want to hear from you! what can’t you resist buying?

work outfits of the days- spring weather

well folks, the title says it all!

outlet city

29 Mar

i’m just about to go to Parndorf Designer Outlet City with my mom. we are skilled bargain hunters, and i think a good 95% of my wardrobe was bought on sale or special offer.

i don’t like paying full price for something… it is such an exhilarating feeling making a bargain on clothes, shoes, bags and accessories!
since i’m travelling to the states in a week, i want to see if i can add anything to the stuff i’m taking :)

i’ll post how it went later today!
toodles!

update:

i got some major bargains!!!
from the michael kors store, i got two slouchy cardigans, one black and one cream in a wool mix, for a ridiculous price. i also found an awesome blazer with long satin lapels that will help glam up jeans perfectly.
from the ralph lauren shop i got a merino wool mint colored sweater, with a lilac pony embroidery- so beautiful and soft!
i also couldn’t help myself, and had to stop by mango- genius idea (one should always follow their instincts!) i found pretty camel colored suede booties with a cylindric dark wood stiletto heel, and super practical beige linen wedges with straw wedge heel. and, i also found a caramel colored oversize blazer (similar to this color) for 15 euros! 15!!!
did i mention i love a good bargain?
oh and i got a fuchsia skin watch to wear at the beach from the swatch outlet.
i’ll post pictures of the items when i wear them :)
