My Name is Rachel and I Am Addicted to Shoes




I know I know. But the people who say "why do you have so many pairs of shoes, you only have two feet?" Well my friends shoes make the outfit...and if I need a pair of black shoes they may not be the "right" pair to go with said outfit. The same goes for Silver, Gold, Red, Blue, Green etc.


But when you have your house on the market for sale and your realtor calls the agent who showed your home to potential buyers and they remembered your home as "the one with all the shoes"...kinda makes me think...do I really have a problem?


Nahh...a girl has to have her shoes. They must be talking about the closet under the stairs where everyone keeps their shoes (I have a couple in the closet too), yes there is a lot of shoes in there too...but they are mainly my hubby's and the kids.


I do have to share a pair of Love's new shoes I got her for Christmas...I have to thank Savy Mode for her find. When she posted about them I had to go to Nordstrom and pick these up for Love because after all, whenever I put on my shoes she says "Oh I wuv yore shoes mom...you buy me some wike dat". Now I want a pair of these Converse too so we can be twins. (They make them in adult sizes too)

If you have to have an addiction it might as well be some shoes. It's the only addiction that you can have and still look good.

Lindsey said...

HAHAHAHA I adore your closet! So organized and it's shoe heaven!

Tiffany said...

awww I saw those on Savvy's blog as well. those are darling!!

My shoe closet is bursting and I have shoes in my walk-in upstairs as well. AND I just gave away about 25 pairs to goodwill (someone who is a size 5 will be very happy to stumble upon them). Most of my shoes are also less than 2 years old. That's the only way I can control my shoe habit. Buy one, give one away. :) otherwise I'd need a house just for my shoes.

missy said...

haha!!! i love...heck no you don't have to many pairs of shoes...what is to many???? and you HAVE to get a pair like Love's...those are waaayyyyy to cute!!!!

Life with Kaishon said...

You are so cool : ). I don't think it possible to EVER have too many shoes. Shoes are essential. I think it is a compliment that they recalled your hosue that way! Did they make an offer?

...love Maegan said...

omg so fabulous! I love how they are color coordinated!!! I wish I had a closet that big!!! sigh. someday!

MindyLew said...

LOL - I still can't stop laughing about the "the house with all the shoes". Goes to show that shoes do make a statement huh?? Love the Pink Converse - Think I will have to go check them out for myself.

I share that addiction, maybe we should start a support group.

Those Converse are too cute, both my daughters saw them and now they need them.

jenkins_k08 said...

MilesPerHour said...

Thank you for the further education. GF has the same affliction and she has passed it on to me. Being a male I still have some control....

Live.Love.Eat said...

LOL. Oh yeah, that's a lot of shoes.

Carrie said...

The Blonde Duck said...

You need a shoe closet!

Liz said...

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

Love the pink converse! That is more my style!

Lump said...

Angie Seaman said...

Halarious. I love it! The comment about the people touring your home is the best. Hey...let us make our mark in this world however we must, eh? Ha ha! I'm not as bad with shoes as I am with other things. (i.e. coats, scarves, jeans, handbags, etc.) Therefore, we should share our loot together. :) Surely we can come up with some incredilby accessorized outfits between the two of us.
Love ya girlie!
PS...Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog a few moments ago. Made me smile. So wish we lived closer...

Hugs, Angie

Rachel, am I the biggest loser in the world because I don't know how to put the follower thing on my blog. What is wrong with me? I can see it when I click on my profile but I don't know how to add it.

I think it is a healthy addiction. Plus, you are ultra organized.

blairspage said...

Coming over from Hi, I'm Amy! I guess you do have a shoe addiction, but I totally understand it. I just wish my closet was/is as organized as yours!

Hugs - Tiffany

Leigh said...

Girl you are not alone ;) I couldn't agree more about how the shoes make the outfit, I can actually stretch my wardrobe much further because of it.

I love the fact that the lookers remember your house because of the shoes, such a carrie bradshaw moment...lol

xo

gina said...

I'm laughing at that post. You DO have a ton of shoes - but I totally understand. Just because you have a ton, doesn't mean you have TOO many!!! ha. I barely posted about all my boots the other day - just the boots were the topic. Nothing compared to yours. Love how organized it all is.

A Belle and her Beau said...

I have never seen so many shoes in my life!!! Will you come over and help me organize my closet?? PLEASE :)
