I’ve received a few queries in comments and via e-mail about my methods of shoe shopping, and requests for a tutorial on how to become an effective shoe huntress. I’m more than happy to share my methods, of course! But bear in mind that shoes are my drug of choice, and my techniques for finding and procuring shoes may seem a bit extreme to some of you. Or, possibly, all of you. We shall see …
Keep an inspiration folder: How do I find most of my pairs of shoes? Why, I read magazines and catalogs. Simple as that. When I spot a pair that makes my heart skip a beat, I either tear out the page and add it to my binder, or note the style name and price for future reference.
