Today is the day that I say goodbye to my favorite shoes. We’ve been together for over 10 years. We’ve had some good times. But part we must.
I still love them as much as ever. I mean, who could not smile at these soles? It brings to mind that Paul Simon song about having diamonds on the soles of her shoes. I’ve had these way longer than Loubuotons have been around.
Maybe I was influenced just a touch by this recent post in DailyWorth. I get great joy out of knowing that I’ve used something fully, and hopefully have been a good steward of resources.
It’s true, having children does change you forever, and in my case, that includes the size of my feet. But this is not a fashion statement.
So these will be going into the giveaway pile today.
Does my willingness to part with my favorite shoes give you strength? Is there a belt that’s too tight, a shirt you know you should never been seen in again, or have some Godawful ugly gold jewelry just sitting in the back of your jewelry chest? All of those things can be sold, given away, or donated to charity, where they will begin a new useful life.
Do you have a fashion fave that it’s time to part with? If you are reading this on Facebook, please post a picture of what you are willing to say goodbye to. It’ll be good to share, I promise.
