Well this is long overdue
Anyone who knows me would have expected this to be my first post
if not the only topic on my Blog
Never one to deprive those that admire the good things in life
here we are at last!

 This is what I am wearing now
Major trendsetter stuff!

There are rules for shoes and an order in which they are stored
Fanatical? No way!
Organised? Not in my vocabulary!
Practical? Oh Yeah!

There are categories and all shoes fall into a category, just one category ever.
There are "The shoes that kill, but heavens they look good"
This is reserved for those must have ones 
 and is accompanied by a
 Handbag and full set of Bling
and a pair to wear while driving
if I am driving
 but a Limousine could be warranted for these shoes!

Favourite brand here is. of course Prada .

All stored in Clear Shoe Boxes

 Then there are those that I could wear out to lunch, time with the girls, nights I know a dance marathon (or karaoke) is on the cards.
These are still stylish, not as painful and cost less than a good meal
May have either a matching or coordinating handbag 
Boots must have a matching scarf
Still stored in boxes but not all clear

 Next is those to be worn around town. Shopping, visiting friends basically anywhere there isn't sand.
Shopping shoes need to be comfortable, must look good,(sales people judge your price range by your footwear and serve accordingly. Want to wait in line then wear your flip flops!)
Comfortable does not mean joggers! Although my favourite are a pair of Diana Ferrari lace ups, brand clearly on shoe and good for shopping expeditions
  This pair of Prada sneakers will set you back a quick $468US

Good grocery Shop

 Trend for 2011!
 "Honeysuckle" is the colour of 2011. 
This was chosen by Pantone Color Institute, 
the company that largely sets colour standards 
for the fashion and home industries.

Honeysuckle is "encouraging and uplifting. 
It elevates our psyche beyond escape, 
instilling the confidence, 
courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges 
that have become part of everyday life".

 so get out there (order from US while the AUS dollar gets us $1.10) and 
snaggle some bargains trendsetters!

I think it is a cool colour for Fluffy Slippers , perfect for Mothers Day!

Although a Honeysuckle Christmas could also work 
if Rudolph changes the bulb colour in his nose!

In the shoemaker's shop this refrain would never stop
As he tapped away, working all the day
(At his bench, there was he, just as busy as a bee)
Little time to lose for the boots and shoes

But his heart went pop inside the little shop
When a lovely girl set 'em all a-whirl
he had come to choose some pretty dancing shoes
And he heard her say in a charming way
Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing

Dancing, dancing all the day
Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing
Dancing all my cares away

A lovely post - I understand your love and passion for shoes and I hope it hope it always brings you joy.

Love and hugs,

Ahhhhh I wish I had the right feet to have a passion such as yours for shoes Lynne! Sadly I'm stuck with extra, extra wide ones that are extremely difficult to fit. This means I hate shoe shopping with a vengeance. I do however enjoy looking at pics such as you have shared and thinking 'if only' LOL. I am glad shoes bring you such joy!
Hugs xxx
P.S. I love your fluffy slippers!
