My one night stand…

Oh how I love these, but I just can’t…

Now, get you mind out of the gutter, this is not what you think 😉 This is all about a pair of shoes.. Yes that’s right.. A pair of shoes!


Christmas party 2007, Houston, Texas. I got invited to my company’s Christmas party in Houston. I had been over there for 4 months, and when I packed for my couple of months trip to help out the IT department, I couldn’t have dreamed up needing to pack for a Christmas party…

So I went shopping 🙂 and found these gorgeous silver “oh my gosh how high heels” shoes, that I just had to have.

I have no idea what I was thinking… I’m a typical tomboy, you know, flat shoes, barefoot kinda girl, so what was I thinking buying such high heels? I should have known they would kill me just about 5 minutes into the party 😉

And I was right… it was a beautiful party, with lots of fun, and the shoes did look good on me 😉 But boy was I happy when I could peel them of my feet, getting in the car, going home that night 🙂

And you guessed it – they have never been used again. Their just as pretty as they ever was, I just can’t do it…

So it’s time to let go! I will never forget the party, and don’t need the shoes as a reminder. So out-the-door they go, my beautiful tortures silver party shoes 😉

  1. Ah it’s so difficult getting rid of pretty things! I have a weakness for pretty clothes which look good on me …but if I don’t wear them, what’s the point of them? Good on you for letting go!


    1. I know, and they are pretty 🙂 And looking at them in the closed, did bring back fond memories, but the memories are still there, even if the shoes are not 😉

    I have totally had a one night stand too… with shoes!

    Last month, I set up a photo shoot with two pairs that I wore only once last year. I took pictures of each pair so I could sell them on eBay. Interestingly enough, both pairs of heels were both worn at the same event because I changed outfits. What the hell was I thinking?! My head was definitely not in the right place.


        1. Well hello back, to all of you 🙂 I had a moment I woke up really early today (went back to sleep though), why on earth I checked my phone at that time, I will never know 😉
