Women and their shoes

What is it about shoes that make most women like a kid in the candy store? Mesmerized by all the different colors, sizes, and styles yet a tad more in price than the average lollipop.

Even my 2 year old loves her shoes. I got her a new pair of crocs the other day…the imitation ones that is…really not into paying $50 for shoes she will grow out of in 3 months and found the $8 ones do just fine. So do you think she was happy with the new purchase…….


….so much so she would not part with them for 3 days AND NIGHTS straight. No the picture is not staged, I snapped it mid-REM. Most kids sleep with a teddy bear or blanket...mine likes to take her shoes to bed. Don’t you love how she is clinging to her hot pink candy with her pinky finger and thumb?

Can’t help but wonder what she dreamt that night?! Also pondering if she loves her shoes at age 2 what will her closet look like when she is a teenager? Guess I better start saving.

That is too funny! What a great picture....she'll love that one when she's older! :)

My kids love the (fake) crocs too...aren't they great shoes?

I will vouch that it was not a staged photo just to make a great post. She is a freak about her "crockies". However her shoe selection yesterday wearing 2 different shoes was definitely a statement. Not sure what kind of statement...

i don't even like croc's but i think i'd wear hers. i've had a new pair of shoes i'm tempted to sleep with...but at 30 it's just not so cute.

What a cutie!!! My friends little boy would only wear the crocs. He wore them so much that he has little tan lines where the holes are. It looks like he has little bruises on the tops of his feet!

Oh Michelle, this is scary! I have a daughter who loves shoes and I have a feeling you are in trouble. One thing about my dear daughter that differs from yours...she belongs to a blog ring called, "Haters of crocks!"

I'm serious! She is taking a fashion class in college and to her crocks do not make a fashion statement...not a good one anyway :) Don't tell Tori...

Hod precious. Yes, I love the way she's holding the shoes. Don't think I've ever seen a tiny one sleep with her shoes before!!

To be honest I have a strong dislike for crocs myself (don't you love my diplomacy...hee). But I do think they are sweet on children...esp little ones.

Ha! A girl after my own heart. Could never make the Crocs work on my feet though.
