Happy Shoesday Charlie

The stunning Cape Town based beauty blogger, Charlie, gives us a look into her shoe collection….

She blogs about all things beauty; reviews, events, you name it…you can check out her blog over at Pretty Please Charlie.

You are:

Charlene van der Westhuizen. I live for my family, friends, beauty products, dancing and chocolate.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?

I stopped counting at 50. I just cannot part with any of my shoes, even though all my stilettos have been collecting dust since I became a mommy. But they will all be worn again!

Why do you think a great pair of shoes has such an effect on women?

There is just something about slipping on that perfect pair of shoes that instantly boosts your confidence. Stilettos, especially, are totally magical – you immediately walk taller and feel sexier. Tummy in, chest out.

Which shoe are you still searching for?

That perfect pair of 70’s platforms. I wish my mom kept her shoes.

Which shoe can’t you believe you actually wore?

Flatforms. I cringe just thinking about it. Oh, and my matric dance shoes… I wish I had a pic to show you the hideousness. Ha-ha.

    Im sorry bt if these r her top shoes I would hate to see the rest, they look as if they belong in a bin not a blog. Your last few shoe blogs really rnt drool worthy when u look at a blog u wanna oooh and ahhhh these shoes r outdated.
    These people cant be shoe lovers really now! If they have no shoes post 2011!!

    I do the Shoe interviews to find out what some of my favourite bloggers are in to, its more about them than the shoes…I used to and will again do aspirational "I think these shoes are to die for" posts but when it's a interview it's just that, a chat about shoes ….read it, dont read it πŸ™‚
    Personally I like to know the "truth" as very few people can pull off 6inch heels every day.

    LOL, Charlene let me tell you ……. "Anonymous" is probably in denial that she's a great big ball of insecurity. Love the blog! m_funky x
