According to the Express the average woman will spend over £16,000 on shoes in her lifetime. What a load of BS.
Perhaps that is my shoe obsession talking but, should I be fortunate to own all the shoes I desire in my lifetime, the expense will amount to far more than £16K.
People mocked when Carrie Bradshaw declared that she had spent over $40,000 on her amazing footwear collection. Miranda raised her eyebrows in a way that said 'My god, on shoes are you serious?'
My initial reaction was also 'Really?' After reading the article however, I thought about it a bit more.
Fortunately, I have been gifted some beautiful shoes over the years but my entire collection is up there already, and I'm only 20. As a poor student I can't purchase all round me but when I join the employment forces I'll be able to indulge in all the shoes I drool over and I imagine that the shoe section of my wardrobe will need it's own room.
Am I alone in this? I'm not into jewelery. A couple of rings are as far as I'll go. I don't even have my ears pierced for crying out loud! My head cannot handle a hat. They just don't work. I like a good handbag but more often than not, if I have pockets the bag stays at home. Shoes are my accessory of choice.
I like to let clothes speak for themselves and not hide them behind a huge necklace but, a great pair of shoes make an outfit. They turn a LBD into a statement.
£16000 won't cut it with me and heres why.
