It’s probably fairly obvious to you all that I like shoes. Heels, specifically. And yet I could never find a way to bring my love of footwear into my blog which, despite the name, is primarily about books.
And then I stumbled across Shoeperwoman.
A few years ago, Amber decided that she had too many pairs of shoes that just weren’t seeing the light of day, a feeling I can sympathise with whole-heartedly. To combat this, she set up her Shoe Challenge: she had one year to wear every pair of shoes she owns at least once. Every pair that she didn’t manage to wear were consigned to the charity shop.
My friends, I propose to do the same.
From tomorrow, from the 14th June 2013, I have one year to wear all of my shoes. Any pair I haven’t worn by 13th June 2014, will be binned.
To avoid cheating, I am going to document every pair worn on this blog, preferably with a photo. So yes, not only do you get to wonder frustratedly how one person can own that many shoes, you also get to see me prancing around in them.
Aren’t you lucky?
My rules (adapted slightly from the Shoeperwoman website):
- Shoes must be worn outside; padding around the house in them does not save that shoe
- The Shoe Challenge includes shoes bought within this year – something to think about when it gets to May 2014 and I’m still buying heels
- Shoe Saves must be documented, so I’m not tempted to cheat
- I am allowed to get rid of shoes of my own free will, obviously. These will be deducted from my overall total.
Speaking of my total, since you must be dying to know by now…
* deathly silence*
I have to save…
