Bis Repetita Placent!

Bis repetita placent: The things that please are those repeated!

Such it is with the way of shoes. I promised myself a shoe free weekend, away in a cabin with no shopping. How hard was it to break that rule? Can we say no self control at all? I look back and I did not even try. I have lost count of my total pairs. 65 now is low. It must be closer to 80 now. I only bought four pairs. Just four. Bis repetita placent!

Why is it so hard to stop? This weekend I got a new pair of Timberland hiking boots . Sale! Can we say sale? I finally broke down and got that pair of golashes--knee high of course and two pairs of dress shoes. Sale, sale SALE! One is a pair of 2-3 inch Unisa pumps (deep red metallic) and the other pair is a pair of Liz Claiborne bone colored pumps for spring. SALE! Could not pass them up! I felt good that it was only 4 pairs. Bis repetita placent!

I could not find exact pictures for all but here are my newest shoe babies! I can't wait for rain. And of course I had to buy a new rain coat to match the golashes. Have to be coordinated you know!

These are my new Timberland hiking boots! Love them! Just love them! They fit like a dream.

Euro Hiker Brown Oiled Leather

These are my Unisa Pumps. This is the exact style but mine are a cinnamom metallic red. Just beautiful. Not too bright! These are my favorite pair out of the four.

Now the rain shoes. I had to get a rain coat to match the shoes. I could not the exact pattern mine are but you get the idea. The color is about the same. Taupe and brown and bone. Instead of this animal print, mine are flowers.

Last but not least the Liz pumps. The style is this style but in a bone color with a croc print.

Bis repetita placent! I just could not help myself!

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
