A Friday Five in honor of ‘Carrie Bradshaw’

Oooh, a Friday Five that’s fit for a “Sex and the City” gal. …

1. What size shoe do you wear?

If I’m being cheap and going to Payless, I’d say a 9, but that depends on how crappy the shoes are made, because that can become a 9 wide very easily. In a good shoe, I’d say 8 1/2, but when can I afford to buy good shoes? 😉

2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?

Um, upward of 60. Maybe 75. Or more. I have boxes of shoes that I haven’t even opened since my hellacious move in June.

3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, pumps, etc.)?

Mmm. Love sandals with a wedge. I’m 5-foot-3 and three-quarters, so anything that pushes me up to that 5-foot-4 mark makes me happy. Sandals rule! I love to paint my toenails and wear toe rings and anklets, to complement the shoes of the day. 🙂

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite?

I can’t even remember most of the shoes that I’ve bought over the last year, if that tells you how fickle I am. But I do have a pair of winter-white boots that make me look forward to inclement weather. They’re more fashionable than functional, but I love light-colored boots (because I think black shoes in general make me look shorter), especially with a two-inch-heel (again, the shortness issue is resolved). And they just go with everything!!!

5. What’s the most you’ve spent on one pair of shoes?

$29.99. I’m not kidding — I go for quantity over quality. I figure, the damn things wear out anyway, and you always have assholes and/or their bratty kids stepping on your feet when you’re out in public, so why spend oodles of money on something you’re going to eventually pitch? Although when it comes to boots, I’ve been known to spend a little more on those (at least $70) because those just don’t come cheap. Boots are worth the investment because when some trailer trash mama and her little minions come a-stompin’ on your feet, one kick with a booted foot, and you’ve just rid mama of one mouth to feed, unless she pulls Junior out of the tree that you just booted him into!!!
