Currently listening to the sound of hot oil in the pan as I’m frying dodo.
It’s the last Tuesday of this year 2016 and if you follow me on Instagram you’d notice that I’m consistent with posting photos of shoes I see on the internet that I’m inlove with using the hashtag #TuesdayShoesDay but today as highly requested by some of you, I’d be showing you shoes I got in my 2016 shoe challenge.
What’s the shoe challenge about?
So in January 2016 I realized I have never bought a pair of shoes myself and decided to treat myself every month (major key alert) to a new pair of shoes whether heels, flats or even slippers.
JANUARY : This white courtshoe is a heirloom I got from my aunts wardrobe.
FEBRUARY : I had this black sandals earlier on but never really liked it till I added studs to it and it became brand new.
APRIL : This was one of the first blogger gifts I got and from all my pictures wearing this shoe, I’m certain you already know it’s a favorite.
MAY : This court shoe was another abandoned property that I brought back to life by these easy steps.
AUGUST : I got this pink lovely birkens but I thought making a huge bow Tzar inspired slides out of it will be a better option as the pink kept getting dirty (chronicles of a Lagos Trekker).
SEPTEMBER : I woke up on the 2nd of September to a text saying someone had anonymously paid for me to get two shoes and I later found out it was the Mr. No need for more details, you already know that shoe is VERY SPECIAL to me.
OCTOBER : My friend had this in her closet but she hated it. With such cute low block heel and my love for comfort, long story short… it’s mine now.
NOVEMBER : I wasn’t planning to buy any shoe this particular month because money kept leaving my account but my mummy came through for me with this Orange lace up flats. I absolutely adore it.
DECEMBER : The amazing people at GAFASANDALS made my wish of owning this tassel sandals a reality. I couldn’t have wished of a better Christmas gift.
*Shoes for February and June were nowhere to be found to be photographed and one for July I had to resell because it wasn’t my correct fit.
This challenge can be done with anything you feel you’re lacking in your wardrobe or generally, like a pair of jeans bi monthly, new lingerie every month etc as long as you treat yourself and whatever it is you’re buying makes you happy. Currently thinking of what challenge to embark on in 2017, your suggestions would be highly appreciated as always.
Till next time… xoxo
What have you been buying yourself this year? If you’d take a challenge like this, what will you be buying? Which of the shoes do you like? Do leave me a reply, looking forward to it.
