Discover what it's like to live a day as a shoeaholic

Hello, my name is Karina and I'm a shoeaholic.

To me, I view fashion accessories like jewelry, scarves, handbags and shoes as additional ways for me to express my style and personality beyond just the clothing that I wear.

What I choose to buy and wear? It definitely goes beyond selecting something that's "the most practical choice." Which explains why I tend to amass many variations of each type of fashion accessory... so whatever I choose to wear on any given day actually reflects my mood and outlook on life at that particular point in time.

Hello my name is Karina and I love shoesThe most obvious example of this? Just like with buying yarn, I have a true lust for color. This means, I always gravitate towards buying fashion accessories in every color shade of the rainbow.

This is especially true when it comes to shoes. Reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, violets... I literally own footwear in every one of those colors. Now you see why I had to transform an entire bedroom in our new house into a walk-in closet... with two half-walls devoted only to housing shoes and boots!

Anyway, that is why...

I can officially call myself a shoeaholic.

Are you a fellow shoe lover? If so, I welcome you to follow my life adventures as a shoeaholic by reading the posts listed below, part of an exclusive Knitting and Purling blog series. More entries will be added on a regular basis, so feel free to come back soon!
