One of my shoes-idols (is that a term?) is Imelda Marcos. She is a widow of the former president of the Philippines. They referred her as the Steel Butterfly, and is often remembered for symbols of the extravagance of her husband's political reign, including her collection of 2700 pairs of shoes. Sweet mother of God, I think that might be heaven! I can't imagne how anybody could have so many shoes! I mean, I'm a collector of shoes myself, but even Anna Dello Russo doesn't have so many shoes.
But anyways... I got these precious heels for my birthday, couple weeks ago. My parents gave me these 'Invisible Wedge Pump' from Maison Martin Margiela for H&M. Simply stunning.
I have to admit, it's dificult to buy shoes when you already have so many shoes. Because when I'm shopping, I'm always searching for something new and it's getting harder and harder. But these babies are totally new, and I like them a lot. My parents know what to get me :) what do you think about shoes? Or Imelda Marcos? Or Anna Dello Russo? Or Maison Martin Margiela? Let me know.
Like Carrie Bradshaw said in Sex and the City, talking about her funeral: "Here lies Carrie. She had two loves, and a lot o' shoes".
With love, xoxo A
