I have always been an AVID purse, shoe, and accessory "collector". I love the idea that you can completely change the look of an outfit simply by changing the accessories. But when I was losing weight, I had a newfound interest in the latest trends of skinny jeans, shirt-dresses, leggings, and maxi dresses. I had an appreciation for the fact that you can completely change the look of an outfit simply by changing the outfit... This brings to mind one of my favorite fashion, and family movies 'In Her Shoes', it features one of my favorite people (and by people I mean people I have/will never met/meet) Toni Collette. In a scene where her sister (Cameron Diaz), tells her that she shouldn't buy such cute shoes because they should be living a life of scandal, and she should let people who will get something out of them buy them, Toni retorts,
"When I feel bad I like to treat myself. Clothes never look any good... food just makes me fatter... shoes always fit."
And so I think that is exactly where my love stems from... shoes ALWAYS fit.
