Shoes set the tone of my day. They establish my attitude. And without fail, wearing heels makes me feel confident. Bright colors make me happy. Black makes me feel sophisticated. Pointy toes make me feel powerful. Round toes make me feel playful. It doesn’t matter if I am having a bad hair day, am feeling a little overweight, or I have bags under my eyes: my shoes always fit and make me feel good. Yes, I have an extensive shoe collection. And for all the reasons listed, I never feel the need to defend my obsession with shoes.
