12 Shoes Of Christmas - Day 1
Over the years of blogging, I've been very fortunate to meet so many wonderful people with shared interests as myself. The majority of my friends (even those I studied fashion with) think of me as a crazy shoe woman and roll their eyes if I spend any longer than a minute discussing heel heights, favourite linings, my thoughts on the latest character heel or which shoe is getting priority on my virtual wishlist for fear of selling out. So I'm extremely appreciative that I have Tomi in my life. We struck up a friendship years ago, over, you guessed it, shoes! Irregular Choice to be exact and though we've never met in real life, I really value our chats about the stresses of online shoe shopping, trying to guess future releases and also what's going on in our lives. She's the first person I want to talk to when there's exciting shoe news and we strategize and encourage each other on special release days. She's just as crazy about shoes as I am, so would never judge me for talking endlessly about them (and between us, we really do).
In one of our recent discussions, Tomi said she was thinking about doing a '12 Days Of Christmas' type thing, with Irregular Choice shoes. Most of you know the last couple of years haven't been the easiest for me and it's hard to feel festive when I don't get out to see the pretty lights and decorations, go shopping or to Christmas parties or even get dressed up. So the idea of working my way through 12 pairs of festive themed shoes and sharing them with you, sounded like a lot of fun (even if only for a few minutes each day). I honestly didn't think I owned 12 Christmassy IC's (who was I kidding?), but after a sit down in the shoe room, I realised we probably could have started on December 1st! Instead, from now until Christmas, Tomi and I will be donning our sparkliest, shiniest, most Christmas looking IC's and presenting them here. Some days we might 'coordinate', but we have loads of different styles between us too. I hope you'll come back each day to see what we're wearing : )
