As some of you may have deduced from the lack of Shoe Challenge posts lately, my mission to wear all of my shoes in the space of a year hasn’t been going well AT ALL lately. This is partly because of the whole “transitional dressing” issue I mentioned in my last Shoe Challenge Challenge post (I can’t WAIT to switch over my wardrobes and get all of my Spring/Summer clothes out!), but it’s also just because I’ve been so busy with work lately that I’ve been pretty much stuck at my desk all day, every day, and on the rare occasions I haven’t been working, it’s still been fairly chilly and damp out, so I’ve been sticking to my faithful winter boot collection.
Hopefully all of that will change soon, but for now, just because I’m failing miserably with one challenge doesn’t mean I’m not up for taking on another, so today I’m signing up for Caroline of Secondhand Shopper’s “Ruby Shoesdays”. Like me, Caroline is a fan of red footwear, so the rules for this challenge are pretty straightforward: every Tuesday, you have to wear a pair of red shoes!
As well as being a bit of fun, this will make a nice change from my regular Shoe Challenge, because rather than forcing me to try and wear as many different pairs of shoes as possible, Ruby Shoesdays will force me to get creative and find ways to remix the same shoes over and over again. And, of course, it’s a great excuse to buy more pairs of red shoes.
I’m too late to join in today, but look out for my first Ruby Shoesdays post next week: and, of course, if you feel like joining in, please do! (And go and say hi to Caroline while you’re at it.)
I’ve been meaning to buy red shoes for quite some time….

You know, I have 100+ pairs of shoes and only two red ones (one pair of chloe boots and one pair of Matthew Bernson sandals)…sadly I just put the sandals on Ebay (along with half my shoe collection) which means now I only have one pair.
If I ever start buying shoes again, I’m gonna keep my eyes open for a red pair!
I’d need to buy more red shoes. Not that that’s a bad thing, really.

Thanks for the shout, Amber!
I’ve set up a flickr group if anyone joining in fancies also submitting to the pool.
Looking forward to seeing how people remix the reds!

Most of my shoes are red, so every day is a Ruby Shoesday for me. OTOH, I’d be in real trouble if there was a brown-shoe-day challenge…
you’ve got some great red shoes! I love those red booties! Can’t wait to see how you style them.
