Fashionable People, Questionable Things. | Shoe Porn Monday: J. Lau’s collection (a sample of 16 pairs | Fashionable People, Questionable Things.

L-A: J. Lau (not her real name) is one of my favourite people ever, so it makes sense that her shoe collection is one of my favourite ever. She’s an excellent travel, drinking, and shopping buddy (actually, she’s just all around excellent), but if I had to list one quibble about our friendship, it would be this: she has smaller feet than me.  Despite being taller than me, she has an 8.5 foot, while I have a 10.  This is a bit heartbreaking as it means I can never ever borrow a pair of her shoes.  I’m forced to just admire her shoes.

J was not able to share her entire shoe collection with us. I’m not sure how many pairs she has. I’m not sure if she’s ever counted. The problem with sharing her entire collection was that we would have to round up all her office shoes and find a way to photograph her extensive boot collection (she is maybe addicted to buying boots).  Boots are hard to photograph.  But she did take pics of some of her favourites.

Ally: I don’t think I have ever been so tired. I now understand why Lady Gaga does not wear pants, she’s too tired to put them on. This has been the case for me for the last two hours. I don’t feel that sorry for my neighbours, they’ve been through worse. Particularly the two weeks last summer where it was 30 plus and I was over nine months pregnant. Clothes were simply not an option. I lived in the basement those weeks, going upstairs occasionally to grab a carton of ice cream/glass of water. When I passed the window in our stairwell, I would often see our next-door-neighbour and wave to him happily before realizing that he may fear naked whales who can wave. He’s never looked at me the same since.

There is no point to this story, I wish there was. It’s the only thing coming to mind at this moment, and I thought I would share.

P.S. I love all of the shoes and I am an 8.5. Must bring J-Lau cake and wine(s).

P.P.S. I’ve also noted that many of our porn stars have submitted Nine West shoes. I think every woman should own at least one pair of Nine West. Then again, not sure if you want to take advice from a woman who is trotting about her home in boxer shorts.

L-A [update]: I’m noticing a trend with our shoe porners: they have nice shoes and they are super nice people. Some exampes: Sarah donated 30 pairs of shoes. And J. Lau is one of the organizers of Halifax’s Relay for Life (which takes place on June 4).  If you’d like to support her, you can pledge money to J and her team online .  You can also support this really great cause by registering your own team or through a general pledge to the event.

    Bwahaha we were totally OK with the occasional gratuitous bum flash through the window last summer. It was indeed the ‘kiddie pool & virgin margarita whilst the neighbors are having an open house’ that will put you into Suburbia Infamy.
    Nine West is my hero. Everyone should own copious amounts of them. For reals.

    PS – BBQ this weekend?

    I love that Kiddie Pool. It’s totally coming out this summer. This time, without the virgin margarita. Real booze! I love BBQs (still recovering from the last one)!
