Imelda Marcos I am not

Is there a better way to start one's Sunday than to find out that Little Miss Drinkalot tagged me last night with a shoe meme?

(Okay, my parents would say, yes, I could go to church instead. But.)

Total number of shoes you own:

34 pairs, including, besides your typical assorted sandals and work heels: 3 pairs of flipflops, 4 pairs of pink shoes (though of different hues of pink), 2 pairs of evening heels, 3 pairs of ballet pumps, 1 pair of running shoes, 4 pairs of boots and 5 pairs I'd entirely forgotten about.

Bonus details

Number of empty shoe boxes you cleared out while counting up the tally: 4.
Most expensive pair of shoes: S$110 pair of boots from URS.
Cheapest pair of shoes: US$1 flipflops from Myanmar that's apparently de rigeur footwear among the locals.
Brands of shoes represented in your collection:
Local brands --- X:odus, Substance, URS, Tangerine, Pretty Fit, Elle, Everbest, DMK.
American brands --- Liz Claiborne, Nine West, Payless, Nike and assorted cheap American brands I don't remember.
Other brands --- something unbranded from Myanmar (see "cheapest pair" above) and a pair of walking shoes from Vietnam (remarkably comfortable mid-vacation emergency purchase).

The last shoe you bought:

A pair of beach flipflops for the upcoming Bali trip --- $9 at the recent Mango sale, and it comes with a pretty butterfly.

How many shoes you have under your work desk:

A pair of purple beach slippers --- very important when one works near the beach.

5 people I'm passing this baton to:
  • Ondine --- My frequent shoe-shopping partner-in-crime.
  • Nardac --- I don't see you as a meme girl, but I'm darned curious to find out what shoes you have.
  • ampulets --- Ditto what I said about Nardac.
  • Stellou --- This summer, I've seen you only in shoes of the red-orange family --- what else you got?
  • J. --- Since you're not working yet...
PS: It's a new baton, started only four days ago by Kelly Chan. Don't let it drop!

Thanks, J.!

Ic3nCok3 --- By Tai Sing slippers, do you mean those white ones with the blue strap? Or the black kungfu shoes?

There is no such thing as too many shoes. In the colder climate, there is need of multiple footwear to suit all the seasons. Would anyone comment differently if you said you had just 34 pairs of underwear. At last tally, I count 50 pairs of shoes. My only lament is that one pair of feet on which to use them.

I will need a few days on this. Am not currently at home so will have to work 50% on memory... this is going to be difficult!!!

ok... done... come visit...

btw, I've been to my sister's place... that's a serious shoe mania going on... she's got it down to matching the same shade of blue with her dress... crazy.

Thanks, ampulets & Nardac!

Agagooga --- Oh, shush.

As of last night, my shoe stash has expanded by 1, and local brand Charles & Keith is now represented as well. I am a weak, weak person.
