My Obsession with Red Shoes.


                                        I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity. 
                                       Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them. 
                                       I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up, but these were my special collection, some you could wear today and  some absolutely  not.   Was it because each one  had a special significance?   No, I examined each one, it was the colour.  I thought about it and searched my brain for hours that evening,   it was  definitely  not my obsession  with the film the Wizard of Oz,  but my darling  Mother bought me a pair of red shinny shoes when I was 8, I loved them so much, I would have slept in them.    Since then if I buy some new shoes my eyes always goes to the red ones even before the style, or if I like the style I will always ask do you have them in Red?




  1. Interesting post! For me it's black. I don't know why but when I see pretty pair of black heels I just have to buy them. I guess we all have one color that just out does it all.

  3. I am exactly the same way with shoes, and the color red!

  4. I felt the same way about my red flats! I just had to have them even though they were too big. I finally donated them and I hope someone loves them as much as I did!

    1. Oh what a lovely thing to do I have one pair that is too tight, and I still wear then, even though I know I shouldn't. X

Is Wolf Whistling Sexual Harassment?

The subject of wolf whistling can be a tricky one to discuss, is it harmless fun or is it a mild form of sexual harassment,  do you find it offensive? Are you being to sensitive? |Do you enjoy the attention? Or when you hear that little noise does it fill you with horror? 

  Myself personally I think it's a mild form of sexual harassment, I want to tell you all a true story, something that happened to me when I was 15. In the last four months of my secondary school life, I used to walk to school, about a 20 minute walk, the same route I took for five years, in all weathers.  in the spring time, houses were being built at the end of my road, and builders were working hard, when one day walking home from school, one of the builders wolf whistled at me, I went bright red and put my head down and ignored it. the next day in the morning the same thing happened and I did the same thing head down and embarrassed   this went on for three weeks in the morning to school and when home tim…
