Shoegasm..Shoelove..Shoeoholic…Shoe ME!

February 10, 2011

Mom: Tanu..we are going to the mall…get ready!
Me: *wears the comfy floaters* Ready! 😀
Mom: Oh lord! Why can’t you ever wear nice heels? They look so are spoiling the look of your good clothes.
Me: *grunt* ugh! Heels are so not comfy Mom!!!!

Me: Dammit! I don’t have space in my shoe wardrobe! Aaarrggh!

Yeah… that’s the story of my ‘Romance with the shoes‘. I was never born to love the gorgeous leather that adores the foot. I was never a lover of the beautiful designs and the slender heels. I was *that* girl who was happy in the comfortable Floaters! Yes yes! I know…! Blasphemy! But I confess… I did love my floaters..

But is another story. Today I cannot live without admiring my Shoe collection..I cannot live without adoring the gorgeous heels and stilettos in the Shoe shop window. I sometimes do dream about hugging those gorgeous Brown Charles & Keith open-toes I acquired recently and caressing them lovingly. You must be thinking.. “what a freak!”, right? Well.. ‘Shoe’ me!

About 6 years ago, a ‘feminineness‘ came over me.. from a floater-wearing tomboy…I grew to be a skirt-loving, heels-adoring girl. It was a sudden transition and I realized I LOVED SHOES! That is when I entered a store and walked past the floaters and ‘comfortable’ section, straight towards the High Colorful Dynamic Heels section. I gaped at.. awed at… fell in love with the most beautiful looking black ankle-length boots! They fit me perfectly..they made me feel sexy! I was in Love… and this was just the beginning.

Currently the owner of 60 pairs of gorgeousness that sit prettily wrapped in my ‘shoe wardrobe‘, I am highly possessive about my shoes. Today if you take me to a Shoe store, be warned, a pair will be bought. “Oh! I don’t have the Grey closed ones with that silver bow..” “Darlingg…I need the closed shoes for formals..the open-toed ones are for dresses only“.. “Ma! I *need* those leopard prints..they just totally go with everything!!” [Note: Purely for Illustration Purposes]….
[Regains control] *clears throat* So.. not only do shoes make me feel ‘sexy‘, of course given that they gave me height! :P.. But they also make me feel extremely confident. I wear my gorgeous open-toed Black stilettos that have these flirtatious bows at the back, to work… and I am so ready to conquer the world! I wear my absolutely divine Red and Gold sandals with my dresses and I could not feel sexier!! I don my knee-length brown boots and I could kick some royal ass… 😛

Well… I could go on and on about my absolute passion for shoes…! But all I wanna say is..
Dear Shoe Darlings… you (collectively) have made me feel pretty, tall, gorgeous, sexy, lady-like, feminine, confident, loved, admired…and much more through these years. I promise to take care of you..always! Love, Tanu

PS: I Love You.

    Good write. But not a single woman’s footwear collection is complete without the <= 100 rupees chappals. You haven't written about it in your blog.

    Dear Tanu, we love the sexiness that is you. Can’t wait to adorn your pretty feet with crazy colored polish, the next time you call on us. And when we run out of the closet, you can replace the husband on the bed with us. We promise to keep you just as warm.
    Love, shoes.

    P.S. Use deodorized foot spray 😛

    Naaiiiceeeee… I’m only sad that the picture is not clear enough for me to oggle at the shoes 😀 But you have wriggled a part of my brain and heart which was lying dormant and I feel like going shoe shopping like RIGHT NOW!! When I look at my shoe rack (yeah… no wardrobe yet), I only see multiple pairs of flats, sports shoes and ballerinas! My heels are all safely stowed inside the cupboard and they see the light of day once in a blue moon 🙂

    Ahhhh… so much for that! Shall wait for more pictures 😉
