Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

Once upon a time a man and lady blinked and then had a baby called Steffany. She grew up and fast and with many bad habits. One of which – was an addiction and love for shoes (and bags, lollies, chocolate and music – but let’s talk about shoes for now)

Call me crazy but I think shoes tell stories. I mean shoes go with you everywhere, unless you don’t wear shoes. I think shoes say a lot about a person. I mean, a guy can have his outfit totally right… and then you look down, and he’s killed it with the wrong pair of shoes. Shoes make or break an outfit. Shoes should never really just be about comfort, or about wearing them because you have to. I wish I had one pair of shoes for everyday of the year. Unfortunately I don’t, but here’s a peak into the shoes in my wardrobe and a little note about each of them. You might be shocked by how many shoes I own, so I’ve also included prices so you don’t completely freak out.

Despite the height on these Tony Bianco heels, they are a very reliable shoe. No blisters, not too much pain from the height and I tend not to fall over a lot in them.

TONY BIANCO – $70 approx

Can anything be wrong with a $7 pair of shoes!!

KMART – $7

It took me a long time to come around to the whole gladiator sandal type thing. So I bought these real cheap in the off season, thankfully they came back. Sure they cut off your ankles, but they are a fashion must have. So I often wear with jeans.

ZU – $30

These were a birthday present from Blaine for my 19th birthday. They’ve been pretty amazing work shoes.

DIANNA FERRARI – PRESENT

P1000177

I purchased these shoes as part of my new look that I’m working on. A whole lot less corporate and a lot more casual, bohemian, eco friendly.

STEVE MADDEN – $10

P1000178

These are also part of that look. I think I really wore these in during an Anberlin concert. I might have even bled in them. But yeah, I basically just wanted to mention that I saw Anberlin live.

STEVE MADDEN – $10

P1000181

I scored these in a ‘throwing out stuff, but you can have it if you want’ session at Tasmania House last year.

TARGET – FREE

I bought these for Liz and Josh’s beach wedding. I had a boring black dress so I went with electric blue shoes and accessories.

RMK – $70 approx

P1000187

Everyone should have a nice pair of gladiator wedges or heels, but hardly anyone does. They are the perfect way to dress something up in summer.

MARCO FIORANO – $30

P1000189

I was trying to break away from my ‘I always wear black heels’ look when I bought these I think.

ZOE WITTNER – $20

P1000192

Tegan and I bought matching pairs.

PAYLESS – $14

P1000193

Bought mostly for comfort, turns out after an hour – they rip your feet to shreds!

No story needed.

HAVAIANAS – $25 approx

P1000220

Of if a shoe could talk would this one tell stories. It could tell you of all the embarrassing things I did in my high school years when I thought I was cool, it could tell you about all the music gigs I saw in these and all the travels I took in them. I like how worn out mine are – it proves I jumped on the chuck taylor band wagon a fair time ago.

CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLORS – $80

P1000223

This is my oldest pair of shoes. I got them in Grade 7. I’ve worn them to retail jobs all day long, hospitality stinks.. and any other time I need black-ish shoes and need to be comfortable. See Mum, I told you they’d be worth it.

DOC MARTENS – $120 approx

P1000226

SACHI – $60

P1000240

These boots feel like slippers, that you can wear outside!

Hmmm… I don’t know and they were freee!!

P1000243

I really love these shoes as well. Originally bought for a Fusion Formal – they go perfectly with this dress I have in the same colour. I would also like to take this moment to say, that I bought these shoes before they started doing cheap rip offs with like gross heels. Everyone’s wedding shoes these days are like gross white version of this. Ew.

ZU – $80

P1000249

The purpose of these shoes is a surprise.

Wow. I own a lot of shoes. And the scary part is, this isn’t even all of them.
