I Spy: Jewelry and shoes edition

I'm hooking up with Ashley over at LMM for her new series, I Spy

Today's theme? Jewelry and shoes. 

I'm a shoe whore. Admittedly. I love them. Sparkly, strappy, platform, heels, wedges, boots, name brand, non name brand, I heart them all. This was originally my husband's DVD shelf, but I made asked him to move them so I could have more room for shoes. Sadly, this isn't even all of my shoes, I have 6 or 7 more pairs in the hallway closet. 

Can you see how much I love boots? I heart me some knee high boots. You know how you can buy those boot inserts so they stand up? Seriously, save your money. Shove some of those trashy celebrity gossip magazines National Geographic magazines that you've already read in them. Roll up, insert. Easy peasy, Japanesy.

Ashley posted an individual pic of all of her shoes, but considering that I'm clocking in at over 70 pairs, I don't have the time or energy (nor do I think you'd have the patience) for that. So I'm sharing my top favorite 5 pairs (not including the Old Navy flip flops that I buy every year in practically every color)

I heart this pair. Got them from Shoedazzle.

I got these from Kohls, the brand is Candies. Ridiculously uncomfortable, but I don't care. The more uncomfortable they are, they cuter you look, right?

This pair, I just got. They are Carlos by Carlos Santana. Got them from CSN (even though I hate CSN) thanks to a giveaway I won.

Another pair of Candies. I heart wedges. I just notice that I say I heart stuff a lot.

And one of my favorite pairs of boots. Got these bad boys off of ebay.

I don't wear a ton of jewelry. I have my ears pierced I think ten times in all sorts of weird places, I figure that's enough jewelry. I love long necklaces, but haven't worn them lately cause of a certain grabby 8 month old. I really should go thru my earrings and get rid of some. I mean, am I really going to wear cherry print plastic circle earrings? Prolly not, I mean, I'm not 15.

The jewelry I always wear? My wedding ring set.

Do sunglasses count as jewelry? Probably not. They're both accessories, so in my part of Blogland, they count. While I don't care if my shoes are designer (hell, I'll rock a pair of $15 shoes from Forever 21), I do love designer shades. Versace, Coach, D&G, Christian Dior, oh be still my beating heart! The three pairs of Oakleys in the upper left are hubby's, the rest are mine. I heart them. I really need to find a better place for them though, they get dusty sitting on the shelf. Makes me sad. 

My favorite pair are these Versaces. But the lens on them is pretty light, so I don't wear these when it's really sunny out.

My other favorite go to pair are these. I feel like a rock star in these. Minus the whole, baby fingerprints on the lens thang.

And my last favorite? My pimp shades. Gold Oakleys, baby.
