A strip of pink

 I rearranged my shoe cabinet this morning and I couldn't believe I had 35 pairs. Is that a lot? Cos honestly I never seem to have enough. And if you haven't noticed, I wear pretty much the same pairs of shoes over and over again in this blog.  When I was younger I used to think my mom was crazy for having so many pairs of shoes and still she kept on buying. At the time I couldn't afford anything and I wasn't very particular with what shoes or clothes I wanted so I was happy to just "borrow" anything from her closet ("borrow" without permission is m,ore like it"). She got mad at me a lot cos I always used to break a heel or accidentally make a scratch on her shoes, and I'm like, she's got over 50 pairs, why does she have to be so mad? Well now I know why. I might actually be starting to become like my mom. Of course she can't  be beaten, she's got dozens of pairs I can't keep track of anymore. I still borrow from her from time to time but since now we've got totally different tastes in style, I can't rely on her closet anymore. Still, its good to know that whenever I run out of something to wear and in desperate need of something, I always have somewhere to run to. Luckily my mom's shoe size is only half an inch or so bigger than mine. Do you borrow clothes or shoes from your mom?

Cheers, Carla
