1200 Pairs of Shoes???!!!

Are you kidding me???

I got this from the UK’s Daily Mail (see link below)
I either need a new goal, or need to learn how to play a killer game of poker.
Or both.

Imelda Marcos Eat Your Heart Out

One pair of Louboutins is a dream for many girls, let alone a staggering 700 pairs.
Beth Shak – whose ‘name is synonymous with shoes’ – has the enviable honour of being one of killer-heel designer Christian Louboutin’s best customers.
And, at last count, the poker champion owns a colossal 1,200 pairs of shoes.

She says the French shoe maestro ‘has an eye for design and he knows what a woman wants’ – and has sunk a fortune into her admiration of some of the world’s top fashion houses.

A professional poker player, Ms Shak started buying designer shoes in 2004, amassing the enormous collection in just seven years.
She treats herself to a pair of red-soled Louboutins each time she plays a poker tournament, but also wears Lanvin flats and ‘goes through Havaianas on a daily basis.’

The proud owner of a specially-designed closet housing the fruits of her obsession – and her career – Ms Shak displays red encrusted Alexander McQueen heels at the centre of her collection. 
Even if Ms Shak used a different pair of shoes every day for three years, she would still have ample fresh heels to look forward to wearing
And, with Louboutins averaging $500-900 per pair, Ms Shak is likely to have spent over $420,000 on the French brand alone.
One pair of Louboutin alligator pumps cost Ms Shak about $4000 and accounts for her most expensive footwear purchase

The mother of three has appeared on MTV Cribs and cites Jenifer Lopez as the celebrity she most admires.
It’s likely, though, that even J-Lo would be envious of Ms Shak’s heels, which include a pair of one-off spade-emblazoned Walter Steiger pink pumps, that she wore to the Poker World Series last year.

Teva High Heels

This one came to me via @Dramilione on twitter, and I just had to blog it!

The original article was on Bit Rebels.com, and was written by Diana Adams. (not me)
You can follow Diana on twitter @adamsconsulting. 

Well hallelujah! What took so long for someone to design this? You are familiar with Teva shoes, right? Where I live, we refer to them simply as “Tevas” and most outdoorsy people have them. I wear mine whenever I’m outside camping, hiking, walking through a river or creek, gardening, etc… They are the perfect sandals for almost all outdoor activities, and I love mine. I put a picture of a standard Teva below in case you don’t know what they look like.

The only problem with Tevas is that, up until now, they’ve looked the same whether they are for men or women. Sure, they come in a couple of different colors, but for the most part, you can’t represent your girl side with a pair of them. That’s all changed now. Introducing… Teva stilettos! Ladies, now we can climb that mountain in style. Gone are the days when going on an outdoor adventure meant we had to forget our fashion. To create these, Teva teamed up with the clothing company, Grey Ant. As you can see in the pictures below, there are two colors. You can get them in either black-and-white or tan.

Men, I know what you are probably thinking, “How would you be able to get down and dirty outside wearing such high heels?” Trust me, any cosmo girl out there knows that when we want to look good, we can make it work, regardless of how high the heel is, right ladies? You can buy them at the link below, but let me forewarn you, they are ridiculously expensive. But then again, most Tevas are.

I am working on a movie right now that has some of the most fabulous shoes you can possibly imagine.

I’m in shoe heaven.

(except that I don’t get to wear, let alone keep them…)
