I have an Imelda Marcos on my hands!!

15 Feb

If you don’t know who Imelda Marcos is I will try to forgive you!  The first lady of the Philipines may be called the Steel Butterfly and known for being an influential political figure in the Philippines, BUT to me she is known as a fabulous woman with a passion for fashion.  Well, shoes more importantly!

“I did not have three thousand pairs of shoes, I had one thousand and sixty.” — 1987

“They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but thank God, all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes,”

I happen to have an Imelda Marcos on my hands folks and the shoe storage continues to grow. We just added more storage for his growing collection this weekend, enough to display over 200 pair of shoes…..just on this new addition.  What kind of shoes? Well, this is the fun part. Over 1,000 pair of size 13 high tops and other trick sneakers! Jordans, Radii, Nike Dunks, Gucci, Louie V, HeyDay, Bapes, Shell Toes, Timbalands, Vans and Creative Recs….Whew! Check it out. I have my favorites picked out!

    I’m sure it’s a challenge to wear all of them but I think he manages to wear each of them at least once!
