I have a confession to make. While I was in Brazil I managed to get addicted to something. I can't seem to shake it, even though I've been home for a month now. Shoes!

Normally I wear three pairs of shoes. Tan leather basic shoes, black leather basic shoes or running shoes. That's it. That's my life. I do own other shoes, but for 95% of my life those are what I wear. Well. Let me just tell you that the women in Brazil wear GORGEOUS shoes! You sit at the airport or at the mall and watch them walk by. You don't see any scruffy runners or basic oxfords. High heels are the order of the day.

Annie introduced me to a chain of shoe stores in Brazil called Datelli. They are known for carrying beautiful leather shoes including larger sizes. Annie's DD is 5'12" (in her words) and so whenever one of them is down there (the DD's boyfriend is from Brazil) a Datelli outing is in the plans. Are these shoes not beautiful? And the red/tan purse; it just begged to come home with me!

Unfortunately that was only the beginning. Once I got home I did some more shoe and purse shopping. Somebody stop me 'cause I'm out of control! Anybody know of a good 12 step program?

ha ha ha! Well shoes can do that to a woman. It's hard especially when you go somewhere that fashion is such a high priority. I say, good for you!
(if I could find some here that were wide I would so be in them too!)
