I love shoes! It’s no big secret; I would buy shoes until they were overflowing from my shelves and closet to the point of risking my life with the potential for being buried in an avalanche of my own shoes. When I am in need of inspiration or encouragement I like to window-shop online and think about what I will buy when I’m given a HUGE advance for my book. Here are 5, current candidates (If the advance is big enough, I may get all 5!):
Valentino Rockstud Flats. I believe in being kind to my knees, especially as they have already suffered through their share of trauma. Also, I’m tall on my own. For both these reasons, I prefer to wear flats day-to-day. But only fabulous flats!
New Balance 574 Sneakers. I would wear these everyday! I have a pair in different colors that are about ready for the bin, I’ve worn them so often. They’re really reasonably priced, so…I may not wait for an advance.
DVF Gladyss Boots. I barely have words, and I’m a writer!
Kate Spade Go Flats. I’ll definitely have to get these on my first publishing trip to NYC. These are the epitome of an outfit-maker. I’d wear a black turtleneck and distressed jeans for their maiden outfit.
Jeffrey Campbell Verite Boots. These are fabulous and completely neutral, which means they go with everything!

A few of my other shoe quirks: I have mixed feelings about peep-toes–I generally shy away from them. I wear a lot of neutral colors so I love flashy, fun, colorful, and whimsical shoes. I LOVE sneakers: they’re fun, they make me feel healthy, and help my knees recover! I believe shoes have the power to assist in confrontations. Anytime I’ve have to confront someone I always make sure to wear really amazing shoes. It helps. What do you imagine spending your first advance on?
