{My Closet}: My Shoe Collection

Shoe Closet

Hello everyone!! I thought it would be fun to show you all some photos of my shoe closet! Clearly I have a big obsession with shoes (don't all girls do?!) and I just can't stop collecting them. The last time I counted I have about 90 pairs of shoes. I made an inventory of all my shoes last year in case you want to check it out ;)

En Español- Hola a todos! Pensé que sería divertido mostrarles unas fotos de todos mis zapatos! Claramente tengo una gran obsesión por los zapatos (como todas las mujeres cierto?!) y simplemente no puedo dejar de coleccionarlos. En total tengo aproximadamente 90 pares de zapatos! Hice un inventario de todos mis zapatos el año pasado en caso de que quieran echarle un vistazo;)

I actually store my shoes each individually wrapped in a clear plastic bag. That way I can see them but the dust keeps off them. I also keep a dehumidifier on one of the shelves to ensure my shoes stay crisp and in their original state.

How do you store your shoes?

En realidad guardo cada uno de mis zapatos en una bolsa de plástico transparente. De esa forma puedo ver todos los zapatos pero las mantengo libres de polvo. También tengo un dehumidifier para que mis zapatos no se llenen de humedad.

Cómo almacenas tus zapatos?

  3. I like the color organizations. And those are just your heels. There must be more flats and boots.

  4. Oh my goodness! I'd be surprised if I own 20 pairs! But your shoes are all beautiful! It is great that you take care of them so well. Could you maybe do a post on shoe care? I'd love to learn more about it...

  5. Wow, so many shoes! I would love to have your collection, and that space to store them. It's laid out so beautifully, like a store! :)

    You're very lucky :)

  8. Oh... my... gosh...MARIE!!! This is ridiculous. Girl, this is a beautiful closet. And look how well organized all of this is. By color, by style... I love your organization. It's funny how I would assume your shoes would be all put together so nicely like this just by how coordinated your outfits are, you know? Man. :) Awesome post.

  9. I think you need a database of shoe type, color, times worn, etc. :)

  11. Your shoe closet puts all other shoe closets to shame.
    here most of mine are on the floor, piled on top of one another, or packed in their boxes where I forget about them.

  12. Nicely done Marie ! Beautiful layout - i had over a 100 pairs and one day decided to downsize as I could not store them in a neat way where I could see them all. So now I have about 70 and continue to downsize...

  13. Hahahaha really!? That drives me craaaaaazzzyyy. I'm kind of an obsessive compulsive organization freak, so when my shoes are not where they are supposed to be, it drive me crazy! hahaha.

  14. Aaaawww thank you!!! I always enjoy seeing other people's closets as well!!!

  15. Thank you so much Van!!! I congratulate you on being so observant. I actually took these photos a couple of months ago and didn't get around to posting it until now. So some of these shoes I don't have anymore and I have new ones that aren't shown. My boots are kept in a different storage place since I only wear them on trips (Panama is never cool enough to wear boots. It is always blazing! haha).

  16. Thank you so much Laura!! Yeah, I have to admit I'm kind of obsessed with collecting shoes. I'm trying to control my shopping now!! hahaha. In terms of storage, I like to wrap each individual shoe in a clear plastic bag to keep them free from dust. I actually use clear sandwich bags in the larger size. Then I just place them on shelves as shown in the photos. I also have a dehumidified on one of the shelves to keep the humidity out. It is one of those cheap simple dehumidifiers where you change the white dust from time to time to capture humidity. That's pretty much it :)

  17. Thank you so so much Mica!! Glad you enjoyed seeing them!

  18. Thank you so much Jody!!! YAAAIII!!! I've been wanting to post photos of my shoe closet since FOREVER. Next time I'll show photos of my accessories collection!!!

  19. HAHAHAHAHAHA thanks Rosely!!! I actually wear the same pairs of shoes most of the time (neutral ones like black, brown, and beige). Then I wear less frequently my more exotic pairs like the wild printed ones :)

  20. Thank you Ali!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIII!!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much!!! I am indeed kind of an organization freak, so it only seems logical to me to keep my shoes very organized and color coordinated :)

  21. HAHAHAHA that would actually be VERY useful!!!

  22. Thank you Lydia!! My shoe closet was actually a work in progress. I used to store my shoes like you in their original boxes and with no particular order really. But then I realized the boxes took too much space and they made me forget about what shoes were in them. So, I ended up storing them in clear plastic bags and color coded on the shelves. I find it much easier to find shoes this way!

  23. Thank you Lorena!!! I completely understand what you mean, I have had to downsize my shoe closet as well because it was just getting out of control!

  29. Hahahaha thanks Ashley!!! Yeah, I'm kind of embarrassed to post this actually since I know I'm kind of a shoe freak ;)

  30. Thanks Mark!!! I do make an effort to wear all of my shoes, but there are certain pairs that get much more use than others. I still love them ALL nonetheless ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my shoe heaven! You have such a nice closet too! I have been looking for shoe storage. What do you use for shelving? I have about 40 pairs I think? I use to have so many more but I go through my stash every season and give away pairs that I don't really like or want any more. I love shoes however! Shoe shopping is my favorite kind of shopping! haha :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. You have so many shoes! Goodness, I don't think I'd ever be able to figure out which pair to wear if I had so many! I'm drooling over this beautiful closet.

  34. Hahahahahahaha thanks JB!!!!!!! I somehow always end up wearing the same pairs most of the time. But its nice to have a wide selection!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Shoe shopping is my favorite type of shopping as well!!!! You can never have enough shoes right?!! hahaha. I actually had these shelves built in for me on an empty wall space in my room. I hired a man to do it for me, and I love how it keeps my shoes organized and easy to find. Perhaps you could install some shelves in your home?

  36. So neat and organized ! Wow. Now i am curious to see how your wardrobe looks like.

  37. Oh my gahhhh I can't believe I haven't commented on this yet! Wow! I love this! And I've always wondered about your fabulous shoe collection because you always seem to have a different pair dazzling your feet! I loved looking at them all organized and separated by color. I am totally OCD about this kinda stuff, so this pleases me.
