addiction.

last night i had some time on my hands and decided to reorganize my shoes and clothes, as i have been facing a dilemma of not having enough space to store all of my attire.
in doing so, i came to the realization that maybe i dont have enough space because... i have a problem.
the above photo showcases about 40 pairs of shoes that comprise about 50% of my total footwear collection. i cannot possibly get around to wearing all of these shoes on a regular basis, but i can honestly say that each pair has a special place in my heart.
owning almost 100 pairs of shoes may seem sick and ridiculous, but i dont actually feel as bad about it, because i dont think a single pair of shoes cost me more than $19.99...
that still adds up to some dolladolla bills, but i feel even better because the majority of my shoes actually cost around $5 at thrift stores and walmart. how can i feel guilty about that?
the only reason im feeling a little bad is because i feel like i need to show each pair a little more love and give them some time on my feet.

#1 i love that your shoes are all color coordinated on your floor. #2 i'm pretty sure if i pulled out all my shoes i would have the same problem. and even worse, the majority of my shoes i rarely even wear...maybe once or twice and then i forget about them because i get so used to the ones that i DO always wear.
let's face it brooke, we have a problem in buying shoes and we're going to help each other through it.
