Ohh! These boxes look so good!
It's so exciting :)

1. A description of your favourite shoes
My favourite shoes are bright orange leather flats, with lime green love hearts. They sound dreadful but they really aren't! They're made by a Spanish designer called Agatha Ruiz De La Prada - she's so much fun!

2. Why you love them
I know it sounds silly but I feel like these shoes were made for me. They are so bright and "out there" that they make a shy girl like me me feel like I stand out in a crowd. They may not be everyone's taste but they're my little way of expressing myself, plus they're super comfy!

3. When you got them
I got them on the very last day of my holiday to Cairns. We were wasting time before our flight home and then out of the corner of my eye I spotted these crazy bright shoes! I just had to have them, and somehow managed to squeeze them into my on-board luggage.

4. Where you got them
At mall in Cairns, QLD at a shop called Rickis.

5. A photo of your shoes if you have one

Black mary janes with cute pink butterflies and flowers and the words "Happy Summer Days Forever" embroidered into them.

They are so cute and unique and very comfy! When I saw them I had to have them! I have never seen another pair like them!

3. When you got them

About 3 years ago I think it was.

A small shoe store in Willetton WA called Gommez (I think).

3. When you got them
I got them about 2 years ago.

4. Where you got them
Target again!

1. A description of your favourite shoes

Black wedges on a cork base with comic book images of "Bam" "Kapow" etc

2. Why you love them
I first saw these walking past the store and I stopped dead in my tracks and ran into the shop and grabbed them. I wanted them so bad!!! I had to lay-by them as I didn't have enough money. I love them because from the top they look like normal shoes but when you look at the wedge it has all these cool comic book type pictures and I love that kind of thing!!

3. When you got them
About 2 years ago

4. Where you got them
Betts

1. A description of your favourite shoes
Thy are little ballet flats, leather, cream in colour and with the most gorgeous pop out flowers on them
2. Why you love them
They are the shoes I am going to be married in! I saw them and thought they were lovely and had to get them as I had been looking for the shoe I wanted for ages. They are flat, which I wanted, round toed so they won't hurt me on my big day, and ever so gorgeous. I can't wait for them to be poking out under my dress! AND my Bridesmaid will be wearing the exact same shoe, but in red!
3. When you got them
About 4 months ago - I didn't even wait for a sale on them, although I should have because they came on sale just afterwards which is just typical!
4. Where you got them
A shop called Imagination, so they're not like they're the best designer shoes ever, but they were exactly what I wanted so as far as I'm concerned I could have got them anywhere!
5. A photo of your shoes if you have one
No-one's seeing them till the day, sorry!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
