From a Time magazine Q & A with “Sex and the City” author Candace Bushnell, whose new novel, “Lipstick Jungle,” is “about three fabulous fortysomething women in New York City”:
What kind of lipstick do you use? I actually use Chap Stick. I’m a fairly low-maintenance person.
How many pairs of shoes do you have? I probably don’t have that many pairs. Maybe 60? But I know that’s really not many.
You sound almost guilty. I do feel really guilty about it, because I feel like I should have more. But how many pairs of shoes can you wear?
How many pairs of shoes do most women even own? From Yahoo Finance:
Most women keep nearly two dozen pairs of shoes in their closets, with 14 pairs in rotation, says Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for The NPD Group, which tracks retail sales and trends.
