OK, I’m pretty sure this is not an officially recognized malady.
Luckily for me, the American psychiatric community considers my particular level of obsession within normal bounds for an individual hobby. It’s not harming my marriage or other relationships. It has opened the stage for more than casual teasing when another shoe box arrives on the porch though.
So, it was that feeling of ‘Coming Home’ when I found Shoeblog.com a little more than a year ago – a growing community of folks like me who loved the whole shoe experience.
My personal cycle:
Window shopping – Real World or Online….Stalking a perfect pair….Finding the style in your size….Hunting for it at a bargain & stalking the sales….Ordering….Waiting patiently for the UPS truck to deliver a small brown package….Trying it on for a test run….SUCCESS.
The cycle repeats, occasionally with less success with the anticlimactic return outcome. But it really is the hunt that is a large part of the enjoyment for this gal.
It’s not quite big-game hunting on the Serengeti, but it works for me.
So, when I was recently offered the opportunity to contribute to the Blog portion of this site, it took little persuasion to convince me to give this a go.
Since online sales and bargain hunting are one of my key strengths, expect to see entries from me along the lines of the “Spot the Shoe on Sale “category, among any other tidbits that bubble out of my head.
And if you’re a little bit like me and covet a touch of “Couture Glam” in your shoe collection, Bluefly has this jewelled Miu Miu slide in stock today at about 20% of retail for $440. Just for one lucky Size 10 out there in Shoeland.
Looking forward to a fun time here with you all.
