Dear LBB: My husband has been pressing me to get rid of at least half of my shoes. He doesn’t understand why I need [[number deleted to remove the shock that even I experienced]] pairs of shoes. No matter how I explain the different heel heights, styles and colors required for a modern woman, he just doesn’t get it. Should I — in the interest of compromise — get rid of some just to appease him?
Obviously Super Rich Shoe Addict: No.
This is a joke, right? Because after he finds his power has extended to editing the shoe collection, he’ll get to work on the clothes. Next thing you know, he’ll be rummaging in your make-up bag and want to know why you need more than two lipsticks (pink and red).
It’s the camel’s nose under the tent, my friend. Do not give in. Rather, look for more creative places to
horde hide your shoe collection.
