Can I just say: I LOVE SHOES!!!! I have dozens of pairs of sandals, tennis shoes, flip flops, heels~ anything you can think of, I have. In my defense though I come by it honestly, everyone used to compare my mom to Imelda Marcos and I have taken over. Libby is not far behind either so the fetish wont die with me.
Check this out:
This is a rack on the back of my door that holds the ones I am currently wearing for this season or my current favorites. I also have no less than 4 large boxes of shoes in the closet to change them out when I get tired of what I am wearing.
My biggest problem with this is that Jeff gets irritated at all the space my shoes take up. He thinks I need one pair to exercise in, one pair of heels and one pair of sandals OR flip flops. He just doesn't get it.
BUT, I have found a product that is going to help me out. It is called Switch Flops and they are made by Lindsay Phillips.
Here is a little information from the web site:
"Lindsay Phillips is the energetic inspiration and founding force behind SwitchFlops. Her footwear concept evolved from a high school art project—ceramic flip flops. Amazed by the response, Lindsay began designing functional flops with colorful straps, each adorned by a unique button. Her idea evolved when she realized that by using Velcro she could create one shoe with many straps–unlimited choices with minimal effort. This simple, yet brilliant innovation was the birth of SwitchFlops. Lindsay applied for a patent on her idea before she graduated high school."
So let me tell you what is so cool about them. You can choose from several different pair of "basic" flip flops and then you can choose from tons of different straps that just velcro on and off to make your shoes look like a brand new pair. I got the Lulu Pink Peace pair. See? Don't mind my feet, they could really use a pedicure.
And I got 2 pair of interchangable straps. Check them out:
I absolutely love this idea. I can get so many pair of shoes that look different, but they take up only a tiny portion of the space. You really need to go over to Switch Flops and check them out. It is a great way to change from beach casual to a formal affair in a matter of seconds, by just changing your straps.
I can't say enough about these shoes or this company. If you go to any of the places I tell you are awesome, this would be one of the best!!
The only down side I found at all is they seem to run a TINY bit small. I usually wear a 6, but got a 7 just in case because when I order off the internet I always try and play it safe and these were a little tight. Quite honestly though, I would wear them even if they were A LOT tight because they are so cute!
Lindsay from the Switch Flop company has generously offered to give one of my readers a pair of their own Switch Flops so you can see just how great they are. All you need to do is head on over to Switch Flops and come back to tell me what you would choose. Of course there is always the extra entry options:
