“How many shoes do you have?”

July 2, 2014

This is a question that I’ve heard a million times, to which I don’t really have an answer to. One thing is certain: I have way too many shoes and have been getting rid of some. I estimate that I must have gotten rid of about 50 pairs, over the last few months. I still have plenty left, worry not.
To try and answer this question without having to unpack all my shoes and count them one by one, I can at least show my Irregular Choice shoes. You see, recently I participated in the #irregularchoicechallenge over at Instagram, which consisted in wearing a pair of Irregular Choice shoes every day until you ran out. I did that and there is the result:

At least we now know that I have some 60 pairs of Irregular Choice shoes. As for the rest, that might be a task for some other time. If you are an Irregular Choice nutter like me and have Instagram join the fun!

    I wish I had that many IC shoes. Love the heart ones at the bottom, so pretty!! I have one pair of IC shoes and their red with a dollface on them 🙂 I really need to get more shoes, but I have a hard time finding ones that I can walk in or are at least nice looking when I can walk in them. Have a gorgeous day doll x

    I’m going to show this post to Mr.A. to shut up his mouth about my modest collection of shoes!!
    A girl can’t have too many shoes, as I’m concerned!!, it’s just we don’t have room enough for our collection!, we need some kind of Tardis wardrobe!
    Your shoes are amazing and cool!!, love them!!

    Wow, that is a motherload of Irregular Choice shoes. Great collection. I would often pop in to have a wee nosey around in their Camden shop but I’ve never actually bought or even worn a pair. I do love their off-the-wall designs but the prices have always been a bit too scary for me. Truthfully I’ve never really been much of a shoe person. After finding a pair I like then I usually wear them to death. Frocks on the other hand is a completely different matter.
    I’m really happy for you that you are making good progress in downsizing your vast shoe collection. I found that downsizing my vintage clothing hoard by a third, really moved things along nicely…xxx

    I absolutely adore Irregular Choice shoes but have never tried any. I have incredibly wide feet and usually gorgeous shoes don’t fit me at all 🙁 One day I must go on an expedition up to London and try some on.

    I particularly like your pointy ones with buttons on the toes, just fab 🙂

    I’m going to have to do that. What blows my mind is that with the large number you have and the large number of IC shoes I have, I see only two pairs we have in common. This is an awesome post!

    Good grief, that’s a huge amount of shoes! I’m not really a shoe lover, I wear the same few I have over and over again, and feel bereft when they are too knackered to wear any more! xxx

    Oh you have a fantastic collection! I’m particularly enamoured of the mint green pointy boots with shooting stars & the emerald green shoes towards the bottom (green is my fav colour in case you didn’t guess!) one of these days I’ll have to photograph my vintage shoe collection, it was quite large (and probably still is) but lost some in a basement flood boo! (Ugh the thought is making me tired thinking of dragging them all out to photograph!) XXX

    Woah! Is all. 🙂

    Being a shoe lover myself, I can relate to ‘needing’ another pair. Most of these are not my taste so I couldn’t wear, but I would love to see you everyday wearing a pair! Do you ever get tired of wondering exactly how degrading people’s thoughts are as they look you up and down because you are wearing something they would never wear? Ah just give me someone who dresses artistically for fun!!! Wish there were more like you in the world!!!….and my fav pairs here are the music pumps, the green elfin looking boots, and the patent red oxfords…Love!
