So today I'm featuring Paola who is one of my favourite style bloggers whose blog I'm totally hooked on and i bet ya'll that a visit will get you hooked too.
Ever since I came across her blog, I've admired and learnt so much from her online aura and she is a woman who supports other women...so below is our chat over her love for shoes.
Glowyshoe: Hello Paola how you today? Can we meet you?
Paola: Hi Glory, I’m very well thanks! And you?
Glowyshoe: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Paola: I’m an Italian woman who loves fashion. I find inspiration in my travels: fashion is a compilation of people, food, music, art, nature, culture, and architecture. Fashion is a way to play with shapes and colors in order to show my personal style.
Glowyshoe: You've got an impeccable fashion style..so what is fashion to you and at what point did you discover your style?
Paola: Fashion is what is trendy right now. Style, on the other hand, is unique to everyone. According to Oscar de la Renta “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself”. My style is effortless chic, trendy, but with personal and original combinations.
Glowyshoe: Glowyshoe blog is all about celebrating and showcasing beautiful shoe styles and trust me you've got a great shoe style..so will you say you a shoe addict (reasons)
Paola: Oh yes, of course… I’m a shoe-addict. I think that accessories are very important and they play a key role in defining a personal style.
Glowyshoe: How many shoes do you have in your closet right now?
Paola: I have never counted them, but I think more than 200 pairs.
Glowyshoes: How long do you think a shoe should be worn before disposing and how old is the oldest shoe in your closet?
Paola: Depends… I have got a lot of vintage shoes in my closet, probably 20 years old.
Glowyshoe: Who is your favorite shoe designer and what shoe style are you loving now?
Paola: Christian Louboutin, the king of red soles, without any doubt. I love his impressive creations.
Glowyshoe: How often do you shop for shoes?
Paola: Whenever I go shopping I go to the shoe section first! (About twice a week).
Glowyshoe: What's the highest amount you can spend on shoe shopping?
Paola: I have no limits, if I’m totally obsessed with an exclusive model.
Glowyshoe: Do you purchase strictly high end designer shoes or you also do street style brands too?
Paola: I buy both high end designers and street style brands, but I don’t love cheap shoes.
Glowyshoe: What's your best color?
Paola: I love all the vibrant colors, metallic shades, and black… of course.
Glowyshoe: Can you give us an insight as to how you take care of your shoes?
Paola: I store them in a great shoe closet, segregated by heels, flats, sneakers, and boots.
Glowyshoe: Which shoe can you never be caught wearing and which do you feel more comfortable wearing?
Paola: I can wear shoes of all kind, except orthopedic ones (LOL!) During the day I usually wear flats or sneakers, they are more comfy. In the evening exclusively high heels!
Glowyshoe: Can you let your friends wear your shoes and can you wear their's too?
Paola: No, I don’t wear their shoes, but sometimes they do wear mine.
Glowyshoes: How do you dispose the shoes you no longer have need of?
Paola: I usually give them to charity, every year.
Glowyshoe: What number of shoes do you think a lady should have if she wants to build a perfect shoe closet?
Paola: Regardless of whether you are a career woman, or a stay at home mom, these pairs should be present in your shoe collection:
Classic black pumps;
Boots and ankle boots.
