Black Shoes

I sort of bought another pair of black shoes today. Its actually my sixteenth pair of black shoes. Pentti thinks I am crazy (I think he has one pair of black shoes, maybe two). But let me explain.... First of all, the shoes were from Winners and didn't cost a lot. But more importantly, they fulfill a specific "need" that I had. They are slip on, semi casual and have a bit of a heel. I swear, in all my other pairs of black shoes, no others fulfill all these requirements. In fact, no two pairs of shoes fulfill the exact same shoe needs. (Well, except one pair which I loved so much that I bought another pair that was exactly the same. But, I bought the second pair from craigslist, so they don't really count). Anyway, like I was saying, all the shoes meet different shoe needs. Some are for fall/winter and some are for spring/summer. Some have heels, some are flat. Some are open toe and some are closed toe. Some are casual, some are dressy and some are in between. Some are better worn with skirts and some are meant to be worn with pants. Three pairs are sandals. One pair is a pair of boots. Three pairs are loafers. So there you have it. I may be a tiny bit of a shoe freak, but I'm no Imelda Marcos. Besides, there are worse addictions than shoes, right??? ;)
