No. 2: Shoes

Another of my extremely unhealthy addictions is shoes. This addiction is unhealthy because it hurts my bank account. I love skate shoes the most and have 13 pairs of Vans classic slip-ons alone. All together I have 31 pairs of shoes. The number was larger but sadly I had to let some go...Please excuse me while I grab a tissue and mourn those lost soles...

And now that I have composed myself again I will continue with my story. My love of skate shoes began in high school when it was cool to wear them even if you didn't own a skateboard. I was one of those kids. No skateboard but tons of killer kicks. My addiction grew when I got my first job and with that comes disposable income. Cha ching! I was at the mall every weekend scoping out the shoes and hardly noticing the boys. That is a serious addiction.

Over the years I have refined my collection and have become loyal to certain brands. You will never catch me in Payless or the shoe department at any large chain superstore unless I need something gawdy, cheap and awful for a costume party.

Spring and summer are just around the corner and I only have 7 pairs of flip flops. I must be off to the mall soon to snag this year's coolest sandals...

No. 1: Underwear

My name is Becky and I have started this blog titled "becky's addictions" because there are a number of things I am obsessed with, have lots of and always seem to spend rent money on. My most prominent addiction would be with underwear.

I love underwear. I just can never seem to have enough pairs. Over the past month I have purchased 38 pairs of underwear. If that is not enough to classify underwear as an addiction then I don't know what is. If I am at a mall and there is a LaSenza in sight then you've lost me for a good 30-45 minutes. The amount of time does not sound significant but I can do a lot of damage and walk out more goodies to add the already overstuffed dresser drawers I have at home.

My drawers are full of lace, cotton, silk, boyshort, classic, bikinis, thongs or garters in pink, black, white, grey, orange, yellow, or red with bows, frills, fringe, charms and pom-poms. I don't know what it is about underwear that makes me so addicted to it, all I know is that there is no better feeling than knowing I have got the cutest pair of undies on under my jeans.
