Shnews – Ciara’s Monthly Shoe Budget

Sometimes I stumble upon shoe news that is too good to pass up and not share with my readers (in my mind there are thousands upon thousands of you but in reality I think it’s just my mom, so, hi mom!). Anyway, I was inspired by this recent bit of news to start a new category (cue Jeopardy theme)! Shnews! Get it? Shoe + News = Shoe News or Shnews. I’m brilliant, I know.

According to a post on The Boom Box, Ciara spends approximately $11,000 on shoes, a month. Now don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have eleven thousand dollars worth of new shoes a month, but does anyone else think that C-lady has her priorities a little out of whack? I quote the modern-day Imelda Marcos herself, “I just love shoes and go for what’s hot. I like everything from Louboutin and Dr Martens to Versace and Fendi.”  Come on girl! There are starving children somewhere! People need water! Hell, people need shoes! You already have plenty!  And if you’re gonna spend 11k monthly on shoes for yourself, at least be original! Reach out to some unknowns! Live dangerously! And if you don’t wear them, you have 10k-worth of other shoes to choose from! Exclamation Point!

Sorry for the rant. Reckless shoe shopping gets my antsy.

In Meryl-news, as of last night there’s a new member to my family! I have a new cousin, a boy, named Adam.  And pretty soon he’s gonna have a kickass shoe collection.  I promise.


Miu Miu Heels

Maybe you can’t really see the image (and I’m sorry if you can’t) but this is a photo of an incredible pair of Miu Miu heels that my friend Megan found on sale! SALE! My favorite four-letter word (ok, you got me, it’s my second favorite, after love – you had to see that one coming).

Ah Miu Miu, my heart longs for you. And this pair is particularly dapper – gold and olive-green, nice sized heel, STUDS.  You can see a bit of my rug there too which obviously adds to the shoe’s charm and class. As do my other friend’s bare feet and a sliver of my knee.

I sometimes think that if Miu Miu were to make me an entire wardrobe and shoe collection to last me the rest of my life, I would be eternally happy and never feel the need to go shopping ever again. That’s probably not true (since I have an intense love for shopping, a disease-like obsession with purchasing new items of clothing), but it’s a moo point (Friends Reference Alert!) anyway, since I don’t think I’ll ever get my own personal wardrobe of Miu Miu. But it’s fun to dream…

Fun fact: Tonight I am to be reunited with my two best friends in the whole world and I can’t wait since they both keep on escaping to Italy and leaving me behind in New York.  Not cool ladies… not cool…
