An affair with shoes!

Sometime back I had heard an interesting logic as to - why women buy so many pairs of shoes? Experts believe [on side note: ever wonder who these experts really are? And how did they get the anonymous title of being an 'expert'? And why does everyone seems to agree with you when you say 'experts'?] ... well anyways, they believe that women are obsessed with shoes because one's shoe size doesn't change with one's fluctuating body weight. Shoes can never make a woman feel fat! Makes sense, right? Well, at least I thought it did ... and that's what matters here :P

I have been a shoe lover for at least a decade, now. During early teenage years I was obsessed with silver jewelry, then came the crazy-teenage clothing [I don't know how else to explain the clothing which was torn with cuts in inappropriate places and was in really bright colors!] and last came the shoe-love! All other obsessions died ... but shoes-oh!-shoes stayed ... Buying clothes does not excite me half as much as buying shoes does. More than often I decide my clothes according to the shoes I want to wear [but you all already know that!] This year on my birthday instead of a birthday party or any gift I just chose to buy shoes! 
  • Shoes can make any outfit pop
  • Shoes are the most important accessory 
  • Shoes can convert a casual ensemble into chic, instantly
And going by all the comments I have been receiving on my outfit posts, 80% of them are in adulation and appreciation of my shoes! [Clothes do feel left out sometimes guys, but I don't mind. I am partial to shoes, myself! ;)]

I am happy, 'coz we are going shopping. Yay!
Sooo happy that I have even done a little make-up! Hallelujah! 
Top - Urban Outfitters; Leggings - Wave
Short necklace w/flower - Macy's; Long necklace - Gift [Mom]

  5. You're so pretty!!! And I agree with you about the shoes but I don't own a lot but I'm starting to be obssessed over them! Eeep! xxooxoxoxxo

  6. I've always been a shoe lover as well. And I went through the crazy teen clothing phase as well, lol.
    You look so beautiful. I love the dress!

  7. Hi Tanvi
    Hope you are very well. I had good time in my hand and thought to go through your blogs. i must admit that you are amazing in writing.Very good idea - and so well written.
    Love those to the bits. Some of them are just too good.
    Keep up the good work hun.

  8. Wish I could own all these shoes!
    By the way, nice black&blue stripes tunic!

  9. I loveeeeeeys your dress.
    The long ends man! they're gorgeous!
    So are the stripes.
    And I'm very tempted to steal the shoe collage and pretend like its mine :P
    the red and black one is still my favourite :)


  10. A girl can never have enough shoes!

    Your outfit is perfect!
    Blue looks great on you!


  11. Nice outfit the eye liner...looks really sexy on you!!

    Wish you a never ending affair with your shoes :)


  12. Do you know Tanvi dear that shoe size also changes with dramatic weight loss/gain? You will be surprised to know that it does. So many of my clients find it hard to believe when they come and tell/question me as to how it is possible. But when they loose lot of weight, their shoe size also changes.
    Ok now I am interested in your collection. If I may ask, tell me how many pairs do you own? And how do you store them? And how many designer shoes do you have like Carrie Bradshaw? he he

    Whenever you talk about shoes you make me think: "damn why didn't we share the same shoe size!!"

    looking at your closet and shoe talk, reminds me to followup on my shoe cabinet!!

  20. I love ur top and the combination of the flower necklaces with a stripes top..u have some really killer shoes!!! and one can never have enough shoes:-)

  21. I guess I've gone through a similar transition, shoes came in relatively late in my range, but stayed...was speaking to someone today she said its the XX chromosome!

  22. Girl, I am a shoe lover! And I think agree with the "people who poll people about shoes"...They never change although your waist line might!
