Shoe Obsession Disorder

I’ve never met a woman that didn’t have a DEEP LOVE and OBSESSION FOR SHOES

DSC07160 Shoes are fun! Shoes are like personalities just waiting to put on. 

Shoes are fun to shop for!  You don’t have to worry about…will they fit….you don’t have to go on a diet to wear them!

And, you can even sit down while you try them on!

DSC07156 To understand a woman~look at her shoes~Shoes are like the window to our souls.  They say so much about who we are, and what our mood is. 


Trying to make friends with someone or mend a hurt friendship????   Tell her you love her shoes!!!!!


I have even change outfits before because I wasn’t in the mood to wear the shoes that went with the outfit I had on!  Have you done that too??????

Good mornin'! Now shoes I can do! I'll have to make sure my battery is well charged! Oh honey, I love your shoes! All of them! God Bless! Lauralu :)

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

LOL, I don't know what is wrong with me, but being a southern born and raised girl I should love shoes but I don't...usually wear the same pair with everything...horrible I know, but I have so much trouble finding a pair that doesn't hurt my flat feet, that once I find a comfortable pair I stick with them....
But I do have a couple pair of favs I can shoe.
And I'm not on your blog list....:-(

Sue said...

Fun idea Nancy. I'm a shoe girl too so I will try to remember to join in the fun. I adore your cherry shoes, you have the cutest little feet too.

Jenifer Helton said...

I have a gorgeous pair of stilletos that I worship. Problem is I am too scared to wear them!
I am not on your blog roll.

Joanna said...

I will link up with my shoes! I love all of the ones you have shown us today!

This Southern Girls Nest isn't on your blog roll either. : (

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

You would be so disappointed in me! I don't have a love for shoes...I wear such boring shoes. Black or brown flat sandals in the summer. Black or brown half boots with heals in the winter....sad I know.

Stacey said...

Woo hoo! My kind of party. I will definitely be there. My childhood friend that I went to visit 3 weeks ago is coming here Monday. We must go shoe shopping.

Don't you think women love shoes, partly, because they fit more easily than say...jeans?! Trying on jeans is hard on your self just make you feel better.

Now would you mind passing me those cute little cherry shoes? Your post is ADORABLE!

Lisa said...

Oh Miss Nancy! This sounds like fun! I've got a couple of ideas twirling about...:)

Anonymous said...

Woo hoo I can't wait for this !!!

Nancy what a fun idea !!

I am such a flip flop gal....I have them in every flavor...I live for summer :)

My daughter got the shoe gene...does she luv em :)

Putting the SHOE date on my calendar....

Kathy :)

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Oh my gosh, this sounds like sooooo much fun! It will be interesting to see what everybody has to show so I hope a bazillion people sign up to participate.

BTW, I could do some serious "shopping" from your shoe collection. You've got some really cute shoes...just my taste!

Unknown said...

Oh Nancy,

I love shoes and have about 80 pairs but goodness, my hubby reads my blog so I will only confess that here. You have some very cute shoes. Now we need to go shoe shopping together... then Southern Market and I will bake us a pie.

I love all your shoes and will pull out a couple for the party.

Thanks friend,

My oldest was in The Wizard of Oz during her intermediate school years. When she left for college -- far, far away -- I sent her a little pair of red sparkly Mary Janes with the attached note, "There's no place like home! There's no place like home!" She loved them!

Nancy Rosalina said...

ST. Michael's Wife~ That is the sweetest story!!! If you don't come back and share it on the 24th...I will do it for you! Love it!!!! Thanks for sharing it with us today! Nancy

Brittany said...

Sounds like fun! Like any other girl, I have a major shoe obsession!

Dawn Marie said...

I dont think I have shoe problem either--BUT, if you look at my shoes--I guess I do! I will join this but i havnt a clue as to what to do.

I dont take care of my shoes at all, so this will be funny for me.

By the way, I want those leopard shoes you had on...those are so ME! I have nothing as colorful and exciting as you do.

Kathleen Grace said...

I can see why you love shoes, yours are adorable! I, on the other hand, wear size (gulp) 11 and shoe shopping has always been a horror. Hard to find cute ones in that size. I'll just enjoy the cute little shoes on other peoples feet:>(

Sandra said...

Wow! I love all your shoes!!! When will you have a yard sale so I can buy them all? JK I will join you all on July 24th to show off shoes. :)

Melissa Miller said...

TOOOO FUN Miss Nancy!
You are brilliant to think of this event to host.
Guess what? Now I have an excuse to buy some more shoes....LOL!
See you then! ;)

Mom in High Heels said...

Well, how can I NOT join in on a party like this? Just thinking about showing off my shoes makes me happy. I've got a bunch!
Oh, I'm not on your blogroll, but if you'd like to add me, I'd be thrilled.
BTW your shoes are adorable. A-dor-a-ble. The giraffe print is my favorite!

Beth at Aunties said...


What a blast? LOL! Such a fun party in the happening! You had some pretty fancy ones there which made me smile! It will be a day to remember as we bear all:)

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

diana said...

Domestic Designer said...

Can't wait for your shoe party. Sounds like so much fun! I also can't wait to read Phyllis Hoffman's new book. I love Southern Lady magazine! Have a great day!

GiGi said...

I just LOVE all of your shoes!

Jane In The Jungle said...

Oh my, my...a girl after my own heart! I posted a little about shoes tonight also!!
Fantastic idea Lady!!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

What a cute post, Nancy! I have lots of shoes, but my favorites are sandals and flipflops. I wear those until the snow flies!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Nancy Girl, Those cherry sandals are speaking to me. They have my name on them. What a precious post. Just loved. Stopped by for the PS and saw your precious shoe post. Absolutely wonderful and creative. Happy PS in case I don't make it back by. Country Hugs, Sherry

Cathy Cobblestone said...

Sweet Nancy - those are some of the cutest shoes I've ever seen - love the ones with the cherries. LOOOOOOOOOVE 'em!!! Have a blessed weekend. Cathy

Tee said...

I think I already said this, but you are a woman after my own heart! I probably should get started now on some pics. Please may I please have the giraffe shoes please when you're done with them? Pretty please?

Miss Janice said...

Why I would just love to attend your shoe party! Thank you for inviting me. I will definitely be there!

Merrie said...

Your blog is so charming. I discovered it last week, I think it was Outdoor Wednesday is where I found it. After keeping an eye on you for a couple of days, I have to add you to my blog roll.
It would be an honor to be added to yours.
Now, off in search of the perfect pair(s) of shoes.

Aunt Spicy said...

I am completely in love with all your shoes, what an assortment! I just got a pair of red patent wedges that I am wearing with everything!

Risa said...

I LOVE shoes, I have a LOT and I'm not ashamed. They're just too cute. I love heels so I have plenty of them. I'll narrow it down to one favorite.

Holloway Family said...

I stumbled upon your blog several months ago and I take a peek once in awhile and LOVE it. I am a Southern girl at heart but don't have a clue how to bring it out of me and show it off to the world. I see so many things in your blog that I think, "Oh I so want to do that." But alas, I am scared to let it out! I hope that in the near future I will be able to kind those little nooks and crannies that I can start experimenting with the southern charm, maybe than it will burst forth and bloom throughout my home without too much effort. I don't believe you have me on a blog list, but if you ever get a chance to come take a gander you can find me at or even at where you can see some of my crocheting.

Ruth Ann said...

I just found your blog! What fun I have been missing! I would have loved to attend your shoe show, but you'd hate to see what shoes I'd be wearing.

I'm not on your blog roll, but you can find me at

I am a true Southern lady, but of the more country sort. I feed the horses, can the beans and tomatoes, and rarely have time to dress up for church because I am always in the middle of something else.

By the way, did you know that a true Southern lady always has at least one freshly baked pound cake ready for anyone who drops by? Iced tea, too.
