How Many Shoes Are Too Many?

via dailymail

I’ve recently came across an article on the Daily Mail about Cheryl Cole owning a whopping 2000 pair of (designer) shoes! How many shoes is it acceptable for the average woman to have? Seven, 10, less than 25?

I think that if it depended on us girls, we would be buying a new pair of shoes every single day. Unfortunately, time and money do not help. Personally, I think that when you reach a point that the majority of your shoes have only been worn once and the rest is made of unworn shoes, then that’s a sign that you have way too many unnecessary shoes.

Some people like to collect shoes but they know every single pair they own and have used all of them. It’s difficult to set a limit on how many shoes one should own specially when one gives proper use to them.

However, there is such thing as having way too many shoes, but there’s also such a thing as having too few! Honestly, purchasing a set of shoes to not end up wearing them or just wearing them once, is a waste of money. I believe it’s all about the journey, if you happen to end up with a few hundred of shoes along the years and do not want to get rid of them, so be it. Just don’t be a compulsive buyer.

Let’s be honest ladies, can you phantom life with only a few pair of shoes? Oohh the horror!

Recentemente encontrei um artigo sobre Cheryl Cole no Daily Mail. Aparentemente, ela tem cerca de 2000 pares de sapatos! Quantos sapatos axam que uma mulher deve ter? Quando é que “muito” passa a ser “demais”? Sete, dez, menos de 25?

Eu acho que se dependesse de nós, comprávamos um par de sapatos todos os dias. Infelizmente, a falta de tempo e dinheiro não ajudam. Pessoalmente, acho que quando se chega a um ponto em que a maior parte dos nossos sapatos foram apenas usados uma vez (ou nunca), é sinal de que temos sapatos a mais que nem sequer precisamos. Há pessoas que gostam de coleccionar sapatos e conhecem cada par de sapato na sua colecção portanto axo difícil estabelecer um limite de quantos sapatos uma pessoa deve ter.

Sinceramente, ter uma grande colecção de sapatos para depois não os usar é um desperdício de dinheiro. Se for daquelas pessoas que ao longo dos anos acabou por ter uma grande colecção de sapatos e não quiser se livrar deles, que assim seja. Só não seja compulsiva nas suas compras. Lembre-se, tal como existe a noção de alguém ter muitos sapatos, também existe a noção de se ter poucos!

Sejamos honestas meninas, conseguem imaginar as vossas vidas com apenas alguns parezinhos de sapatos? Sabia que não!

  1. You know, I’ve gotten through my first year post-baby with only one pair of flats, one pair of working heels, one pair of boots, and (the horror) one pair of … clogs…

    There’s a certain romance, and audacity, to these celebrities’ wardrobes!

  2. I think it depends on how long you have been collecting shoes.
    Adding 12 pairs a year to my collection works for me, but for someone who is in the public eye it may not be enough…

    • I agree with you. Society puts more pressure to those who are in the public eye.
      12 pairs a year seems reasonable but the amount of shoes you’ll end up with is going to be a lot!
