I have a friend who collects shoes. Emma has 300 pairs -- and mostly high-end brands like Christian Louboutin. You might find that excessive but, for Emma, shoes are a passion, not just something to wear. She displays them in her house like artwork.
How many pairs of shoes is too many? Well, we finally have an answer to that burning question. Last week, singer Celine Dion revealed in interviews that she has over 3,000 pairs of shoes. 3,000! She admits shoes are an addiction for her. She even buys shoes in the wrong size, simply to own them.
My question is -- where does she keep them?! What closet could contain so many shoes? Then again, she's rich so she probably built a new wing onto her house just for shoes. Seems a bit crazy but, then, I'd display motorcycles in my living room if I could afford it. :-)
On a side-note: Celine brags that her 2 year old son Nelson loves to wear her heels. I applaud that. Not every parent is so open-minded.
Last, you knew this question was coming -- How many pairs of shoes do you own??
