Hola chicas! Hope you all had lovely Easter weekends and rested a lot (even though I already know many of my beautifuls went after my own heart and partied hard!)

I spent the day ill and feeling sorry for myself while slaving away once again at my Fashion & Culture essay. That beast will be the death of me I'm sure... Then I went for dinner at my Gran's house, which was lovely as per usual! Gran's going away for 3 weeks on Wednesday *sob* I won't be seeing her for over a month :( Anyway, onto the post!

Today I started watching (and got addicted to) a Korean drama series called Boys Over Flowers :) I'm constantly watching these dramas and getting way too into them and I can sense this one taking over my life again soon! But when watching it, one particular line stood out to me:

"Good shoes take you to good places."

How true is this quote girls?! Whereas most girls would count shoes as their fashion favourite, I'd say I have a love/hate relationship with them. I personally prefer handbags, of which I own over 35 of. Ooopsie. Why, you may say? I honestly have serious problems in selecting just one or two pairs to purchase when faced with displays of beautiful creations, whether at my local New Look, Kurt Geiger or just at your average Joe's shop. I will either splurge on many pairs of shoes that I never wear, walk out in annoyance that none were suitable or buy just one pair and spend the rest of my day cursing myself for wasting an opportunity.


I currently own 12 pairs of shoes. ><" *hangs head in shame* Yes, I'm a failure to fashion students everywhere.

But anyway, "good shoes take you to good places," - you wouldn't wear your Louboutins to buy bread and milk! - and I am finally converting to a shoe-luster-after. I shall leave you with these beauties to admire:

So ladies, are you a shoe obsessive? Or more of a handbag gal?

And if you're interested in watching Boys Over Flowers with me (please do!), shimmy your pretty self over here :) Be warned... you'll have to be patient with subtitles.
