What is one thing a girl can never have to many of?¬† I am sure there are several answers to this question, one of them being SHOES. I would say I have a moderate amount of shoes but if you ask my husband he will tell you that I need a bigger closet or maybe even a second room to store all of them.¬† When my husband and I got together, I had to move some of my shoes to another closet to make room for him. He asked me that day, “Do you really need all of these shoes?” I am sure by the look on my face he was sorry he even asked that question. Yy reply I thought was perfect, I said,” I don’t know do you really need all of those screwdrivers?”¬† Point taken was his reply. My shoes¬† were never a topic of conversation again.
One more humorous story about my shoes. I recently moved, with my son in laws help, and Chris was carrying in a rather large, heavy box. As he sat it down he looked at what was written on the top. There displayed in black marker was SHOE. He looked at me and said “Is this entire box full of shoes?” I said yes that is one of the boxes. He shook his head and walked away saying “I thought Colleen had a lot of shoes.”
My daughters didn’t seem to get the shoe gene, but as genes often do it definitely skipped a generation because my one and only grand daughter Honey, well to put it bluntly she is a shoe freak!¬† She is only 8 years old and already her closet is full of all kinds of shoes, boots, and flip flops and they are very stylish too. I think she might even have me beat!
I am always on the look out for fashionable and unique footwear when I am out shopping or on the Internet for myself or for Honey. I found this awesome site the other night while surfing the net called Reef.com.
So I started going through the site, it is very user friendly, just click on a category listed at the top and you can start shopping. I really like how comfortable yet fashionable all the shoes look and a wide variety as well, they have shoes, boots, sandals and bags for girls and there is guys¬† footwear and apparel and kids footwear too. I found this very fashionable pair of boots aren’t they cute?
Also the Girlslook awesome for when I go boating with my family
And I really like the look of the, they come in so many colors perfect for matching up to your outfits.
As I continued to investigate the site I decided to click on the Redemption tab and I can’t tell you how impressed I am.¬† The Reef Redemption program¬† is the brands commitment to preserving the natural world. Every single style of shoe is made with water based glue, and free of PVC a toxic compound found in many commercial goods. And the Reef Redemption program also gives back their time and a percentage of their financial resources to support humanitarian and environmental causes. All employees are granted paid time off to volunteer for a non- profit organization of their choice. That sealed it for me, I can buy fashionable, comfortable shoes and help the environment as well. Then to make things even better you can buy on line or you can visit a local store that carries the Reef brand, just click on where to buy, enter your zip code and you have a list of suppliers at your fingertips. I was very please to discover there are many stores close by, in fact right down the street.
