The Addict

Words 100

 “How was your day out with Piya?”

“She dragged me through the shops for hours.”

“Couldn’t she find what she was looking for?”

“Oh, she wasn’t looking for anything in particular.”

“Ah. Window shopping.”

“Not exactly.”


“She must have tried on at least a 100 pair of shoes…”


“In 10 different shops.”

“Did she buy any?”

“She settled for 3 pairs…”


“She was on a shoestring budget.”

“Yet she could afford 3 pairs?”

“She simply had to complete her century.”

“You mean she already had 97 pairs?”

“99 pairs. Two pairs to get the next century going.”

This post is inspired by my baby sistah 😀 And going by the number of shoe addict quotes, she is clearly not alone 😉

“You know you are a shoe addict if you think there is always room for one more pair”

“What do women want? Shoes.” ― Mimi Pond

“I would hate for someone to look at my shoes and say Oh my God! they looks so comfortable!” Christian Louboutin

“The look he shot her was incredulous in the extreme. “You have a filing system for your shoes?” ― Norah Wilson,

“You can’t buy happiness but you can buy shoes and that’s kind of the same thing”

😀 Hope you liked!

  1. 😂😂😂 happens when I go with my friend. She says “let’s go shopping”. She tries on shoes, clothes, jewellery and everything else! She wants to go to every shop. And then she bargains like crazy, finally says “anyways I never wanted it”! 😒😒😒 Now, I go only if I have to buy anything, otherwise I dodge 😂😂
