Inspired by Miss F's post yesterday about shoes and heels, I took a peek in my own closet to see what was there. While I have a generous shoe collection (yet very modest, by most female standards), I realize that I wear the same 3 or 4 pairs most of the time, and the others sit there and collect dust, no matter how much I loved them when I bought them.
In reviewing the quantity of shoes, the question of quality....and price....also struck me. I always see beautiful shoes in store windows -- Pradas, Jimmy Choos ($960 above), Kate Spades, Gucci, Dior, Weitzman and on and on -- at outrageous prices, and I wonder how good could they be, and who is it that buys these shoes? Because while I admire them, I never purchase them. In fact, the most I've ever spent on a pair of shoes is probably $150 on a rare, rare occassion, and that's because somebody talked me into it. (and I've worn them twice in a year.)
I always remember the 'Sex and the City' episode where Carrie laments the fact that she has no money in her savings account, but she has $40,000 worth of shoes in her closet......
Which got me to wondering....What does the average woman spend on a pair of shoes?
