Have you ever heard the phrase, “good things come in pairs”? Or maybe, “the 1st place is the best place”?
When it comes to numbers and placements, everyone has there preference on which is the best spot or number, or which is their favorite.
Well, I have come to put an end to the argument. The best placement, spot, reservation, number, etc. is 5, or the 5th.
I mean, I was born on the 5th day of the month, in the 10th (multiple of 5) of the year, in 1990 (another multiple of 5). We will not even discuss me being the “LIVE 5… of my Magnificent line” (a little shoutout to IN Spr. 13) lol. I mean, what else is there to explain.
But just in case you still disagree with me, allow me to introduce to my Friday Feature: The FAB 5…
Instead of throwing together an interview for a Friday Feature, I decided to do something a little different and feature a few of my new beauties.
We are still deciding whether or not it is a blessing or a curse that Mr. Gent is employee at Charlotte Russe. “Shoes are my obsession”, and my love makes it no better. Each time they receive a new shoe he thinks I will like, he immediately lets me know, and next thing I know, there is a bag, a receipt, and a new pair of shoes headed back home with me.
At this point in my life, I own over 100 pairs of shoes, mostly being heels. The first section I browse in a store is the shoe section, and when I go shopping in Charlotte Russe, I am liable to remain in that section for a good 30-45 minutes alone.
Within the last two months, I have acquired 10 new pairs of shoes from the Charlotte, and I just wanted to introduce to my favorite five… Meet my loves: 🙂
I am in love with each pair of heels you see here. Each serves a different purpose, and can be worn at different events. I have already christened two pair, the others are simply waiting. The outfits and accessories are ready and waiting, were just waiting for an event… lol
Every shoe above came from Charlotte Russe. The most expensive pair (Naya aka The Stripper Heel – Nude and Clear) costed $48.50, and the least expensive pair (Jessica aka SJP – Tomato Red) was found on clearance at an astounding $9.99. The others range somewhere in between, but you can always catch a sale at the Charlotte. Not to mention there shoes are reliable… Take care of them, and you will have them for years.
There is no way I could pick a “favorite” because I have so many. I constantly keep my shoes in rotation, and it is rare that you will see the same heel being worn with in the three weeks of each of each other. I have just been so blessed to be able to acquire such a fantastic shoe collection, and I try to give each an opportunity to be worn.
When I was teaching at Davidson High School, my students (male and female) liked to talk about the shoes I wore. They once told me they look forward to the next day just to see what heels would come clicking down the hall. Many days we had discussions about fashion and shoes, and sometimes even tied it into our lessons… it was our way of connecting… Now that’s what you call a good teacher… lol
I love my shoes, and I take care of them. Many times I chose outfits based on the shoes I want to wear. Try it sometimes… I promise you will find yourself wearing every shoe in your closet… lol…
Until next time, kisses and more…
