my bars of chocolate
I was reading through Elber's blog and was challenged by one of his posts where he did an inventory of his shoes. It made me wonder how many pairs I had, since I always blogged about loving shoes and buying a new pair of shoes and all that nonesense about shoes. And so I present to you my attempt to mentally note all the shoes I have in my room. Unless otherwise specified, heeled ones are stilletos or kitten heels. And if lumped together, do not mean that they're all the same style but in different colors. I'm not that OC.

2 Havaianas
3 Myxstar flipflops
3 Flats (closed toe) in gold, brown & moss green
5 Flats (open toe) in pink, bronze, black, brown & white
1 3" black Nine West pumps
1 2.5" black Nine West peep-toe slingbacks
2 2.5" metallic Schu sandals in gold & bronze
1 2" brown Zara croc-skin pumps
1 Flat brown boots (calf-high)
1 2.5" camel Shoe Studio boots (narrow heel, mid calf)
1 2" black Bass boots (block heel, mid calf)
2 Converse sneaks in hot pink and navy blue
1 Adidas flip flops
2 Adidas sneakers; 1 casual and the other for the gym
2 1.5" pumps in camel and black
1 dark green woven wedges
1 1.5" black "snakeskin" closed toe slingbacks
1 3" black Nine West sandals
1 2.5" black M)phosis strappy sandals
1 3" white Janilyn pumps
1 3" camel Janilyn sandals
1 2" flesh Charles & Keith sandals

That counts 35 pairs of shoes. That counts those I can remember. That does not count those that I don't wear but are stacked somewhere in my room (it may go over 40). I don't know how I ended up with this many shoes. I always feel that there are nuances that make each shoe different from the other. Like which style will be best worn with what outfit, with what length of pants or jeans, with which skirt, for what kind of weather. Chips doesn't understand it. Even my mother can't understand it.

I really should give some away. But who'd be in need of 3" stilletos?

    i miss wearing heels!!! di kaya ng powers ko mag heels dito sa singapore with all the walking that i do.

    35 pairs and only 4 of them are sneakers?!? You need more sneakers.

    Of course, you can argue that I need more leathers. Heck, I can argue that.

    And yes, I can understand how certain pairs just seem to match certain outfits better.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
