Lulu's Shoes

I only own like 10 pairs of shoes.  That includes:  3 pairs of $4 ballet slip ons in various canvas prints from Mervyn's, 3 other >$8 ballet slip ons, New Balance running shoes I've used twice, 3 mid-calf boots, a pair of dark green suede Farylrobin wedges that are my favorites I found for less than $5 at a fundraiser, and a couple pairs of slippers or "flip-flops" as non-islanders call 'em.

I used to be a shoe fetisher (?).  I think thanks to my little sister.  We used to comb those mall stores looking for "funky" cheap shoes in the early 90s.  The one pair I remember loving most were these $5 wedges that had a tear-dropped shaped hole under the heel.  The whole sole was a dark colored wood and the uppers were these thick black suede straps that criss-crossed across the foot up to an ankle clasp.  You could rock back and forth on them b/c of the way the soles were shaped.  I did love shoes at one time. 

I think if I were a teenager now, I would like Lulu's.  Here are my new finds from ode to teenage shoe shopping:

These remind me of socks with heels
