Happy New Year, Happy New Shoes!

Year 2009 has been the year of the shoes for me! Since I started blogging in May, I collected about 32 pairs already. That's like one pair a week, oh no!!!

I intend to slow down this crazy shoe shopping in 2010. I need to save up for one or two nice purses because my closet is now overflowing with shoes and begging for purses.

But before that, here's to cap off the year with these 4 new pairs I got at Barneys in Beverly Hills and the Prada Outlet in Palm Springs.

Without further ado, please join me in welcoming...

Givenchy Bianco booties

A few things I love about these booties: the classic black color, the rich supple leather, the round toe with seam detailing, the side buckle accents, the rock glam design with the front extending out... and best of all, 60% off! This is my very first Givenchy and my first purchase from Beverly Hills!

Dries Van Noten with python heels

You know you love what you shopped if the first thing you do when you get home is try them on, walk around the house wearing them and repeatedly ask the hubby what he thinks about your newest foot candy! This is my first pair of Dries which is also from Barney's in Beverly Hills.

Prada crackle brush pumps

I don't have any pumps in this color yet so this purchase is justified. Plus, it was hard to resist them at 65% off!!

Prada suede booties

Not entirely over-the-moon with this purchase. I think I love the box more than the shoes, hehe. Contemplating on selling them. ;)
