Shoes shoes shoes!

The website Onlineshoes.com is running a contest where the Grand Prize is $2200 worth of shoes. No kidding! What would I do if I won? I'd have shoes up to my tuches.

The focus of this contest is 2011 resolutions. So, let me break it down for you:

Like everyone else on Earth, I resolved to work on my fitness more. As you may have noticed in a previous post, I spend a lot of time in the gym. However, I want to try and mix things up for 2011. I could slip into some Alo High End Yoga Pants and a cute prAna tank top and work on my flexibility. Or, I could slap on a pair of Asics GT-2150 running shoes and hit the treadmill more. Heck, forget about the treadmill -- I could take it outside and hit the trails in a pair of Montrail Mountain Masochists. Of course, I could just forgo the whole "working out" thing and go bowling. I've always wanted a pair of my own bowling shoes, since the idea of putting my feets into a pair of shoes that other feets have been in creeps me out a lot. I could get something stylish, like the Etonic Retro Neon bowling shoes.

On the topic of stylish, I think I need to expand my boot collection. This year, I resolve to be more fashionable. There's resolution number two. I mean, just look at these Carlos Santana lace-up boots! They're delicious, but the chances of me getting them over my thighs are as fat as the thighs themselves. Back to the fitness resolution, I guess. At least my ankles are normal-sized, so I can wear styles like the Diba Brandy Lee, the Report Electra, or the Sofft Reiko Anthracite Cow Metallic Pumps.

Maybe I should just make a list of shoes that belong in my closet. There's resolution three: purge the closet. Exchange shlubby shoes for beauties like the Isola Dalia Black/Bordeaux Pearl pump or the Nina Clorele Gunmetal Crinkled Micro heel. My husband would just prefer to see me in these boots, though. :)


If you want to win shoes too, you can tweet the following message or something like it (Wait, wut? You don't have a Twitter account? Go get one.):
  • I heard from @one_of_three that @Onlineshoes_com is giving away a metric crap-ton of shoes in their #shoestakes. RT to get in on the action!
  • This year, I resolve to get in shape. What? Round is a shape. @one_of_three @Onlineshoes_com #shoestakes
  • This year, I resolve to become more flexible. The TV remote isn't going to reach for itself! @one_of_three @Onlineshoes_com #shoestakes

And so on.....

As long as you include my Twitter handle @one_of_three and the hashtag #shoestakes, there shouldn't be any trouble. Right, Vinnie?

I swear that marketing and sales is your forte! You do a better job at pitching the product (especially if a contest is involved) than the agents themselves!
