My Not So Strange Addiction

A while back, there was a show on TLC called My Strange Addiction. I have to admit that I was a little obsessed with watching the show, which featured everything from a people who ate the foam from mattresses or rocks to a woman who was in love with her pet capybara. (If you don't know what a capybara is, Google them because they are super cute!) Well, one time they had a woman who was obsessed with shoes. In my opinion, that's not such a strange addiction. What woman doesn't love beautiful shoes? I guess her addiction went a little too far because, as I recall, shortly after the episode featuring her aired, news broke that her husband killed her. I don't think any husband is too thrilled about his wife's shoe addiction (mine certainly isn't) but that's obviously taking things a bit too far!

So, getting back to my meditation on women and their obsession with shoes (and the men who loathe them for it!), I've found that my love for shoes is so strong that it's bled into me buying other things that feature shoes. For example: skirts with shoes on them! A while back, I bought this Eva Franco shoe skirt, which you will see featured on my blog here and here. I love my Eva Franco skirt, but it was a bit on the pricey side, so I was thrilled when I found this inexpensive shoe skirt that I am wearing today from SheIn for under $10! At that price, I could definitely afford to have a strange addiction not only shoes but shoe skirts as well!

  3. Oh, I am so jealous. I wanted this skirt, but my size was not available. I just love it with the stripes and polka dots! What a tragic story...

  4. I'm with you--a definite shoe addict! Love the shoe print skirt too, so fun. I never watched that show--the previews I saw just really freaked me out. I think there was one where a lady was eating dishwasher detergent or something crazy like that. People do some crazy stuff!

  5. Great mix of prints! Love the skirt!

  6. Perfect pairing and pattern mixing, you look gorgeous! What woman doesn't have a slight obsession with shoes? I definitely do! Happy tuesday, hope you have a great week! XO-Kim

  7. I love shoes! It's a problem. This is such a fun skirt.

  11. I LOVE THIS LOOK! That dress is fabulous!!! Stopping by from the Trend Spin Link-Up!


  12. i love that skirt, it reminds me of one i had that had the same retro feel and had little purses on it. i wonder if i can find it....? your pattern mixing always kills me, and my strange addiction is addicting!

  13. Love the skirt! I'm a shoe addict too and my husband hates all the space they take up, but he knew about my obsession from the start so he'll just have to put up with it! If he kills me I want to be buried with my shoes...the grave would be enormous!

  14. Oh my goodness- this skirt is so perfect for any girl that loves shoes!! How adorable and I love that you paired it with stripes :)

  15. What a horrible sad story! Your shoe skirt is darling and really, it looks like it is worth much, much more than $10! Great find :)
