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.
