I am especially envious of the lucky folks who got to see Dita Von Teese in the flesh. I love her, I think she is fabulous! I have this book and I absolutely adore it. It is my favourite coffee table book!

On a completely different note, I counted my shoes last night. You'd think that since I'm so frugal, I'd have maybe, 5 or 6 pairs of shoes? A pair of heels, runners, two pairs of flats, thongs and sandals. That seems like enough in my head. I'd be very un-excited about the lack of colours and styles, but it would do.
I think I have overstepped (no pun intended) that number. By a lot. From what I have read on the Vogue forums, I don't even have a lot of shoes - those girls lurve their shoes! But last night, as I laid them all out on the floor next to each other, it blew my mind to see SO MANY. I knew I had a few pairs of black flats, but seeing 8 (I think, could've been 9) pairs... I knew it was time to count.
I have 50 pairs of shoes. Or more. I counted 43, and I could think of at least 7 more pairs that are stored at my mum's house.
Who the hell needs that many shoes!? I only have two feet!
It also just clicked in my mind that 50 pairs = 100 shoes. 100! This is just getting worse. No wonder I have trouble finding space for them all. Currently, I have them in the bottom of the wardrobe (which is tiny and the bane of my existence, by the way, but I'll get to that another time), in the bottom drawer of a tallboy, and a few infrequently worn pairs in a suitcase under the bed. They are all neatly lined up next to each other - with flats, one shoe sits on top of the other, which saves a lot of space - but I really need to find a proper way to store them, as I'm not happy with them spread out EVERYWHERE.
How many pairs of shoes do you own? HOW DO YOU STORE THEM?? <-- I need tips! Is it enough or do you need more? What type of shoe do you own the most of? I was surprised when I learned that I have 4 pairs of plimsolls...
P.S. Yeah, I totally just posted about my shoes. With no pictures or anything. Oh the excitement!
