On a hunt for the perfect work shoes….

November 12, 2012

Hi, I am Meli Mel and I am a shoe-aholic….I love shoes and I can’t seem to have enough.  This morning I was having a conversation with my husband about building me a closet storage for all my shoes because the walking closet is not working out no more…I need a room to line up my shoes properly to have easy access to it and perhaps a long mirror in it to try on and ting…ladies yall know what I mean.  Although he said yes, he said the last time that I am beyond an average woman with all the shoes that I have because according to him the average woman supposed to have at least 17-20 pairs of shoes and for my post not to come back and bite meh, I will not say how many pairs I have but let’s just say it is not 20 🙂 (like I said I am a shoe-aholic, so doh judge me).  Men just don’t understand eh, we need a shoe and a bag to match our outfits, wham to dem…hehehehehe.

But anyway, I have been on the hunt for the perfect work shoes forever.  Sometimes I want to wear heels to work to make me look a little taller but mama can’t be in heels all day long man and have to stick to flats.

I got these sometime ago and had to return cause the fit just wasn’t right and to me these were the perfect work shoes.  Of course now I see they are retailing for $85 while I got it for $45.  These are Report Bishop Loafer Pumps and seems to be sold out everywhere 🙁

Then I added these flats to the collection but somehow my soul is still not at rest lol.  I have the Black Patent and Tan in these from DV by Dolce Vita Wentz (49.99 but retailing for 61 and also sold out everywhere).  The last one is also from Report (29.99 and retailing at DSW for 44.94)

 

 

 

 

The above is from Michael Antonio, (Got for $25 and retailing for $69 at Zappos).  I wore this one a few times and at the end of the day my toes and knees does be cussing me….so they are in the back of the closet.  These shoes are just to look cute in not to walk in it all day long.

So ladies my quest for the perfect work heel still goes on, the flats are fine just need a little heel in my life.

What is your shoe collection like and are you like me; looking for the perfect work shoes or am I in this mess by myself lol.
