Before I begin this fun little fashion experiment, I thought it wise to give you all a little background. Pretty much a year ago to the day, I decided it would be a good time to sort out all of my shoes, organising them into categories. In the process, I realised several things:
1. I own a lot of pairs of shoes.
2. In particular, I own a LOT of flat shoes.
3. I spend an awful lot of money on said shoes but only wear about four pairs on rotation.
Before I go any further, we’re going to need a little more back story. By day, I am a Junior Stylist on a national newspaper. While most of my peers run around in sky high stilettos (mid-heels be damned), I am confined to flats due to hyper-mobile joints which have resulted in my left knee blowing out three times.
As I mentioned in point three, I seem to wear a handful of pumps on rotation, despite the fact that I own far more pairs than is probably healthy. Therefore, for the next month, I will be attempting to wear a different pair of shoes each day, with no repetition. I’m hoping that not only will it mean that I will actually get to air out some pairs that have lived in crates since last year but also jolt me sartorially out of my uniform of black jeans.
Starting tomorrow, each day I will post a photo of the shoes of the day on here, along with details of what they were worn with and to, because let’s face it - you wouldn’t wear the same shoes to a wedding as you would to a Pitch’n’Putt. My only question for you all out there is whether you’d prefer a full outfit photo to put the shoes into context or whether knees down will suffice? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Wish me luck.
