1. What size shoe do you wear? 7 ½ N. Sometimes an 8, depending on the shoe.

2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?.
Lots and lots. Conservatively, I'd guess 35 pairs or more.
    There’s a rack over the closet door that holds 18 pair.
    There’s a shoe bag in the office closet that has 10 holes, but there’s a lot of doubling up going on there.
    There’s a rolling ikea bed box under the bed that’s full.
    There’s a lot in various places around the house.
    There’s even a shoe rack/bench by the front door, that I’ve taken more than my fair share of.

I have lots of dressy shoes, but don’t wear them very often anymore. And I understand the difference between different black pumps.

3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, pumps, etc.)?
I’ve always loved the look of 2 inch heels, probably because I’m barely 5’3”.
I like shoes that have personality. I tend to wear a lot of comfortable casual shoes, though—bass, hush puppies, lots of slip ons (since I think better with my shoes off!). Having flat feet, most loafers don't look good on my feet.

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite?
All summer, I wore my sage green Birkenstock Riveras. They’re the next best thing to being barefoot. Since it’s been getting colder, I’m back to my favorite beat up pair of Naturalizer clogs—black leather, hard rubber soles. My red suede Joseph Siebel "hiking" shoes are my most favorite though, even though I don’t wear them all the time. They have floral trim on them and are super comfy.

5. What's the most you've spent on one pair of shoes? recently?
The most expensive pair of shoes I own are some hot pink embroidery-trimmed red velvet Jane Brown’s (think louis XIV in red velvet) that retailed for over $600. I bought them at the I Magnim Last Chance rack in Vegas for just under $30. Next to that, the most expensive pair are my Nike lightweight hikers, which were right at $100.
Recently, the most I’ve spent was on my Aidias Sambas, for soccer--$68. Since I get lots of shoes, I tend to bargain shop for them.

"And I understand the difference between different black pumps. "

A woman after my own heart.... ah, the days when a neat suit and appropriate black pumps were de rigeur.

How many women understand what "spectators" are .... we gotta shop together!

Appropriate Dress

And today, if I came into the office in a suit, there'd be a panic that I was leaving.
One of the perils of the hi-tech business--life in dockers and polo shirts with logos on them.

I was really jonesing for some beige and navy spectators this spring....but couldn't find anything that would work to wear them to work, so......

i know what you mean. I've kept a couple of suits, just because I paid alot of them and they are classic enough that i could wear them in a pinch (funerals, weddings, whatever).

the thing i hate about the rainy climate out here is how fast it rots a pair of leather shoes! i bring my 'good' shoes to work in a bag, then change out of my hikers/tennies that can take the rain.

i am about ready to wear some of my better clothes to work regularly this winter, just because i get tired of the 'jeans and a turtle-neck' look. i stocked up on smart trousers last spring as well as nice shirts. it's soon getting cold enough to wear wool jersey. after vacation, i'll start the switch-over.

is the Joan and David still open in downtown Seattle? i bought one of my most beloved pair of black loafers there about 6 years ago...
