Should You Let Go of Your Old Fashion Shoes?

I have a wardrobe full of fashion shoes. When I say fashion shoes, I mean that at some point in my life they were in fashion. As you are well aware, fashion styles change with time. Despite this fact, I’m one of those ladies that hang on to each and every shoe I have because I grow emotionally attached to each pair. How can I let go when I love them so much?

I noticed that this is a genetic defect that I have. My mom has dedicated the entire half of her walk-in closet to her fashion shoes. She doesn’t get rid of the shoes, especially if they are still in a good condition. She will only get rid of them when they are damaged or broken. This does not happen very often. I know I shouldn’t do it. I shouldn’t blame my shoe obsession on my mom. But how else can I explain it? OK, perhaps I just love my fashion shoes a bit too much.

There are a pair platform shoes that I bought way back in 2000. These were my favourite pair of going-out shoes. They were comfortable and looked great on my feet. I wore them for that season when they were in fashion but during that decade the platform shoe was no longer in style. It was a trend that just ended. I was so disappointed because I loved that fashion shoe. I couldn’t bring myself to throw the shoes away or even give them away. Guess what… the platform shoe has made a come-back. I went back to my wardrobe and found my favourite pair of platform heels, cleaned them up a bit and enjoyed a night out with them. Everyone told me how much they loved my new fashion shoes. I blushed and accepted the compliment. I was on cloud nine.
