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 picture..it 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 @gmail.com). 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.
