Monolomanic

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: man olo man ik

Sentence: Carrie had become a Manolomanic. Although she had already blown thousands on her collection of the flimsy, expensive Manolo Blahnik spikes, she could not get enough.

He did a flip-flop and decided to go through with the wedding even though he had no sole, was a heel with a loose tongue and had a permanent wedgie. Luckily Carrie was not too Jimmy Choo-sey and they lived happily on a shoestring ever after!

Etymology: Manolo Blahnik (Expensive,Designer shoe name, made more famous on Sex In The City) & Manic (affected with or marked by frenzy or mania uncontrolled by reason).

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: sty LET oh

Sentence: Candy just loves buying sexy and stylish new shoes from places like Needless Markup - oops, I mean Neiman Marcus. She must have 150 pairs - no, I'm not kidding. She and her husband built an addition onto their bedroom, which they tell everyone was for the luxury bathroom, but really it was so that they could have a walk-in closet - just to hold all her shoes. Her husband was thinking of retiring early on the money he had made as an investment banker, but it isn't going to happen now, between the second mortgage and all the expensive shoes. But he loves and adores her - he calls her his little styletto.

Etymology: style + stiletto
