However the closet is full of her shoes. How many pairs are enough? Why are there so many the same color and style? Is this normal or do I need to have the closet enlarged?


lol.
I am also a h-u-g-e fan of shoes. I currently have -runs to count shoes-37 pairs of shoes and probably wear about 5 of those pairs I'm guessing this shoe buying frenzy is normal, I knew a girl who had 43 pairs of strictly flip flops! It sounds like you might need to enlarge the closet

Okay i'm going to get philosophical with this question of 'what's excessive' when it comes to shoes :

1. If you need to add an extention to your existing home to house your shoes, that's excessive.

2. If you own 3 or more pairs of the same shoe (in different colors-- cause, you know, they have to match every outfit) then that's excessive.

3. If you are willing to purchase and wear shoes 2 sizes too small just because it's the absolute last pair available at that store, then that's excessive.

4. If you are going to postpone a vacation because you'd rather use those funds to purchase $1900 Jimmy Choo knee-high boots, then that's excessive.

5. If you're planning a vacation for the sole purpose (pun intended!) of purchasing shoes, that's excessive!


Anymore?

Thumbs up thanks to all of you

Citybythebay, goldpolkadots, Prettygyrl777 and KewGee you all seem to have a normal understanding of the amount of shoes needed and why, I appreciate the insight and information. Prettygyrl777 I have to agree with you about $1900 Jimmy Choo knee-high boots, I donít know if Iíve seen them but Iíll know when the credit card bill comes in. Sure wouldnít want those at my house. Come to think of it, she does have some hiking boots boxed up in the other room Ė I missed that in the counting.

I think this calls for a fall cleanout of the closets and garage and get some shoes moving on someone elseís feet. Iím sure that some of the pairs are too small now (only because if you donít wear them they shrink) not because her feet are fat or anything like that.

Iím out of here before I get into more trouble. The next time the moderators move my posts Iím going to complain to upper management. ~ now back to the hardware store and other topics area.

Question citybythebay ~ the answer to the question is

And to answer your question citybythebay ďdoes this make my butt look big?Ē Why Iíve never noticed ~ Iím always looking at the wonderful attractive eyes, smile ~ and the way you do your hair takes the attention away from everything else that a man would look at.

I have about 30 pairs of shoes. To me, no amount of shoes is excessive. I'm a bonafide shoeaholic. I would have 100 pairs if I could afford to!
