30 Day Shoe Challenge: Day One

Hello friends and happy December!

So I have something to confess: I have a shopping problem…specifically with shoes!!!

I’m apparently not the only one either. A friend of mine from work, MeLinda, also has this same problem. So MeLinda came up with a brilliant plan: For the month of December we will challenge ourselves to wear a different pair of shoes each day and not wear the same pair twice!

Also, no new shoes may be purchased for ourselves either.

So I took the idea and ran with it, telling other co-workers, inviting them to join us!

Of course there had to be some exceptions, such as workout or other specific purpose shoes may be worn more than once, If a pair is too uncomfortable or inappropriate to wear all day, shoes may be swapped as needed.

The general idea is to appreciate the shoes we already own, pair them with new outfits,  and not add any more new pairs to the equation until we can better appreciate what we have.

In addition, I decided to add a prize for the person who makes it the most days: A Nordstrom gift card, and some other neat samples/incentives.

Sooooo without further ado, here are my shoes for Day One:


These are my shoes of the day. I got them in LA in the Garment District for five bucks!

And here are MeLinda’s shoes for Day One:


Awesomely sparkly and fun!!!

Stay tuned for Day Two …

If you want to join in the fun, simply contact me via email with your name, blog address if applicable,  and a picture of your shoes.

Happy shoe wearing!
