I adore the sensation of crossing the threshold from the parking lot, into the sanctuary of a mall and finally on the doorstep of my favorite place in the whole wide world. The shoe shop. Hearing the low hum of voices, appreciative murmurs and wispy contrails of music as I step into the glass doors, admiring the inevitable over-commercialized shoe-glory as I loiter through the concourse and pass window displays decked out in gleaming shoe finery, I think to myself 'There's nowhere else I'd rather be.'
Shoes tend to have that dramatic effect on me, and millions of other women around the globe. They'r collected, savored, pampered, loved and worn with utmost adoration. Buying the perfect shoe or heck, even trying it on, can light up a woman's face. Its an unconditional relationship to say the least- no weight gain, and no mood swing can affect it.
Marilyn Monroe most definitely had her facts right when she said- 'Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.'
