Shoe Challenge 2011: My collection

So um I'm a bit of a shoe addict... but who isn't. Shoes are always there for you, when you're sad and happy. They're better than chocolate, you don't have to worry about gaining a couple of pounds because they're always going to fit you, they might hurt your feet sometimes but they'll love you until they fall apart. Oh wow I sound pathetic, moving on then...

Shoeperwoman is the superhero of shoes, by that I mean shoe addict bloggers worship her blog. Last year she started the shoechallenge which is a challenge to wear ALL your shoes in the span of a year AND photograph them as evidence, if you don't take a doesn't count. Every shoe you don't wear has to go "bye bye" to a charity store. She ended the challenge last week and she succeeded in wearing her 70+ shoes in a year.(congrats!)

I tried to do the challenge last year and failed miserably not with the "wearing all the shoes" part but the with "taking pictures as evidence" party, by that I mean there are no pictures at all :P woopsi.
With shoeperwoman's challenge coming to an end and with my finals almost over, I had decided to restart the challenge and stick to it. I decided to start it after finals, but the other day while checking shoeperwoman's blog, I was pleasantly surprised to read that she's going to do the challenge again and was asking her readers to join her. Since I was going to do it anyway, I signed up to the challenge.
It begins on February 14th, which not only is Valentine's day but also the first day of the new semester which is a great "fresh" start for me. :)

I took the pic on the stairs in the building, boy was I glad that my neighbors weren't going up and down the stairs :P This would be the perfect shoe closet..if only it wasn't the stairs of the building. GAH :(

The day before yesterday, while taking a break from "studying", I counted all my shoes and if you follow me on twitter you probably saw a twitpic of my shoes. I have 46 pairs, not counting the couple of pair that I "borrow" from my mom on "rare" occasions :P Last year I had 31 pairs, and obviously I've been shopping a lot since then.

I love my flats, I can't wait until I can wear them again :D

The Rules, as set by shoeperwoman:

  • You must wear every pair of shoes/boots you own before the end of the challenge. (And it doesn’t matter whether you own five pairs or five hundred – everyone is welcome!)
  • You must take photos of yourself wearing each pair of shoes as “evidence”. (Full length outfit shots only: photos showing just your feet don’t count!)
  • Each week I’ll publish a roundup of participants’ photos from the past seven days, with a link back to your blog (if you have one: if you don’t, you’re welcome to just send your photo to shoepershoechallenge If you don’t want to take photos you’re welcome to join in anyway, but you obviously won’t be able to be included in the weekly roundup.
  • Any shoes that you haven’t worn by the end of the challenge must be disposed of: use ‘em or lose ‘em.
