Celebrating the Shoe-Shopaholics of the World with a 12 Step Program of Sexy Shoes

Ever gone into a mall to get something completely unrelated to footwear but then walk out with like 3 new pairs of high-heels?

How could this happen!?!?You wonder….

Now if this has happened to you on 3 or more occasions, you may have what is considered a shoe-shopping problem.

Problem you say?!? Nonsense….If you call looking fabulous a problem, we’re not speaking the same language right?

This post is dedicated to the shoe-obsessed shopaholic women of the world.

Don’t fight it ladies, its natural.

Stay sassy.

These are the original Twelve Steps as published by Alcoholics Anonymous (and then edited to fit my specific problem with heels and 12 of my current shoe obsessions)

STEP 1: We admit we  are powerless over adorable shoes and shoe sales—that our lives had become unmanageable and we take a big first step with some seriously  hot shoes!

Iconic Sandal - Black


STEP 2: We come to believe that a Power greater than ourselves, such as the hottest white summer sandals I’ve seen just yet that could restore us to sanity.

    Pamona Sandal - White

STEP 3: Make a decision to turn our will, and our plastic shopping buddy named Visa, over to the shiny scissor gods. But before you do that, you want to buy these babies that go with just about everything, so when you look down at your shoes to cry about losing your favorite shopping buddy (Visa) , you will smile because at least your wearing some classy and timeless shoes that you can wear about every day of the week:

Genevieve Heel - Black

STEP 4: Go searching and take a fearless moral and material inventory of ourselves and our excessive wardrobes while wearing these Charles David Shoes which I believe every woman should feel morally obligated to own:

Engage Pump - Black

STEP 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to the nice sales lady at Nieman’s  the exact nature of our wrongs …

    Angee Sandal - Silver

STEP 6: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of our character- unless we don’t want to because shoe shopping is too much fun…

Ziska Heel - Natural

STEP 7: Humbly ask Michael who keeps calling from MasterCard to remove our shortcomings, and lower our monthly payment so we can get the proper footwear to proceed with step 8.

Reena - Gold Snake



STEP 8:
Make a list of all persons we have harmed, and become willing to make amends to them all, right after finding the proper footwear to make such a particular confession.
Aubrey - Grape Fizz


STEP 9:
Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others, or take away from precious time trying on shoes at the Nordstrom shoe sale…ohh Nordstrom…
Lesley - Grey Leather


STEP 10:
Continued to take personal inventory and footwear inventory – when we were wrong or gluttonous promptly admitted it.
Ikina - Deep Raspberry


STEP 11:
Sought through prayer, meditation, and shopping to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His Will for us and the power to carry that out in the hottest shoes we can possibly find this minute…
Fresno - Orange Multi Satin


STEP 12:
Having had a spiritual shoe awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to shoe shopaholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
Carlo Pump - White

Note: This post is not intended to help those looking to get rid of their shoe shopping substance abuse problem- it will only strengthen it.  If your looking for someone to help you confront and eliminate your substance abuse problem for fine ass footwear, I am not your girl.  However, if you are looking for a friend to help you stay up to date on the sexiest heels with the hottest deals- I’m that girl, at your service…

Stay Sassy,

If Social Networks Were Shoes. . .

If social networks were shoes, what would they be?

blahnik

Twitter Valuation approx. $150 MM = 218,978 Pairs of these shoes.

Twitter is attractive to the 20 something plus generation as opposed to the other social networks which first caught on with the college kids, bands, and high school students.

It keeps it simple, sweet, and to the point- 140 characters or less. Nevertheless, it is addicting and spending too much time on it bad for you-quite frankly, much like a high heel.  Also, with twitter you either get it or you don’t. You either know how to use twitter and write purposeful tweets that add value to your followers lives or you are someone that doesn’t get it or doesn’t care to get it and writes tweets that even your closest friends don’t really care about (i.e you just went to the bathroom or some nonsense). So, with shoes and fashion- you either get it, or you don’t. Finally, like Manolo Blahnik, twitter just came out of nowhere hitting the mass market.  It wasn’t until Sex and The City that everyone knew that these glorious shoes exhisted. Thus, this shoe follows those notes. Its simple, to the point, somewhat quirky, even flirtatious, you either get it or you don’t, and the brand just came out of no where. Thus, twitter shoes by Mr. Blahnik.

Facebook Valuation Approx. $15 B = 474,233,322 pairs of these shoes.

You can connect with a lot of people and get a lot done on this social network. Facebook is for fun and playing.  Nevertheless, I love the useful-ness and practicality of it. It gets you from point A-B quickly and can become your tool to getting things done-like sending out invitations to an event, promoting a cause, or even fundraising. Also, Facebook is all about your memories and connecting with your friends (old and new), exploring who you are, and remembering the good ole days- especially with those pictures. . . “De-Tagg! Please!” Nevertheless, Facebook shoes are an every day shoe.  They get you where you need to go quickly with a little bit of nostalgia along the way.

Myspace Valuation Approx. $3.174 B = 1,872,566 Pairs of these shoes.

Myspace is kind of tacky and a little bit gaudy.  From from my point of view- way too high maintenance. Sometimes moves too slow for me and often attacks a lot of creepers trying to be my friend. Not to be played with much, but when I do I either quit quickly or I become addicted to perfecting my profile and it becomes an all night affair that I know I’ll grow to regret the next day- serious waste of time sometimes. Nevertheless, its somewhat over the top, kind of obnoxious, and full of unnecessary nonsense. Although myspace is fantastic and a pioneer, much like Mr. Louboutin, they both still manage to create something strange and completely unnecessary. Both of which are very proud of this.

Linkedin Valuation Approx. $1 B = 11,235,955 pairs of these shoes.

Promising, young, and opportunistic. Sexy from a financial standpoint and its a pretty good deal. Multiple revenue streams and potential others ahead. The Linkedin shoe is about transforming the business professional and using one’s reputation and image to leverage more growth and business for that individual. Thus, the shoes are powerful in statement and impact, yet smart, classic, and priced at a great value. Nevertheless, they are still very different and trendy.

My inspiration for this post comes from Allison Driscoll at www.high.heels.com Her obsession with purses is comparable to my obsession with high heels. I thought I’d love to help her write a piece more suitable for her high heel blog following a similar concept. Although she did an amazing job matching the purse to the network, we may have different takes and views of the social networks; thus different metaphorical styles in comparison… Let me know what you think Allison!

Happy National Barefoot Day!

Happy Monday and Happy 1st day of June Everyone! Today is actually National Barefoot Day!

Barefoot_Shoes

National Barefoot Day, you say?!?!?

What’s that all about?

National Barefoot Day, June 1, was declared by the organization Soles4Souls. Find out more information about the day and it’s cause here.

Find out more info on the organization and Soles4Souls here.

Essentially, the day is meant to raise awareness on the benefits of donating and recycling your shoes, as opposed to just throwing them away. Basically, it is better for the environment and it helps someone else out. There are many people in the world walking around barefoot and could definitely use that old pair of Nike’s deteriorating in your closet.  Like, Kate Hudson, but I’m pretty sure that’s by choice…
