Rows Of Shoes

Monday, September 12, 2011

I've gotten quite a few requests from readers to do a shoe closet post. Finally...here it is! While most shoe magpies dream of glistening white shoe racks adorning their walls, I'm pretty content with my current "shoe closet". This "shoe closet" of mine was actually an old book shelf stand that my ever-resourceful mom transformed into a shoe storage space.


As you can see, my shoe closet is quite small so I just keep my favorites here. All of the other shoes are neatly tucked in their shoe boxes and hidden in a separate compartment. Here are the shoes in detail:

(Top Row, from l-r): Gold Dot boots; Asian Vogue wedges; DAS wedges; Aldo wedges
(Bottom Row, from l-r): Folded & Hung clogs; Jessica Simpson platforms; Gold Dot platforms; Asian Vogue wedges

 (Top Row, from l-r): Jeffrey Campbell Black/Taupe Lita and Leopard Lana; Folded & Hung canvass platforms
(Bottom Row, from l-r): Soule Phenomenon Mary Jane platforms; Five by Five wedges, Soule Phenomenon lace up boots and wedge boots

(Top Row, from l-r): Gold Dot wedges; Five by Five wedges; Soule Phenomenon wedges; Gold Dot wedges
& winged flatforms from Hong Kong

  17. Wow, amazing shoe collection. (:

    You probably buy a lot of shoes online too so I was wondering if you would trust this site http://www.lovelyshoes.net/
    Because I don't want to order a pair of shoes and then end up not getting them or getting them in bad quality. Plus I need it to ship to CA but I am not sure if it will get here..
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. ..never mind (: there shipping to US is expensive

    amazing shoe collection! (:

  29. Extremely jealous! I'll be visiting Manila in Feb next year so I'll definitely be keeping a close eye on all of your post! Wouldn't mind getting my hands on a pair of each of these while I'm at-it!

    Could you please do more post on places to visit/shop/eat in Manila??? I had no idea on my last visit that there were soo many great places to shop there, that was until I stumbled upon your blog x

  31. @ Brie M.: Hahaha! I don't think the shoes will be able to last until my future daughter is all grown up already. :)

    @ Nadia Cayco: How I wish I had SJP's shoe closet! Haha!

    @ Yna: Thanks, dear! Just display your favorites. They're total eye candies. :)

    @ Ericke/Sarah/Linda/Kaye (TheStyleFlux): Thanks, loves!

    @ Nina: Thanks, love! I was able to finally grant you your request!

    @ Rovie: I don't think you'd fit inside the closet. Hahahahaha!

    @ Fashiable: My shoe closet doesn't compare to other bloggers' shoe closets! Haha!

    @ Herroyalbleakness: Hahahaha! You're comment just made me laugh. Thanks, dear!

    ReplyDelete
  32. @ Closetfullofmemories: Thanks for dropping by, dear! Your comment made me realize that I haven't done any food posts in a long time. I should be doing that soon! I'll try to post more new shopping sites. If ever you do visit Manila, the real gems can be found in ukay-ukay stores. There are a lot spread out in Metro Manila.

    For the usual high street buys, you can go to Greenbelt, SM Mall of Asia and Bonifacio High Street. :)

    @ Dylana: Im sure your have loads of shoes too! :)

    @ Vita T.: Haha! Try other online shops, dear!

    @ Reluctant Stylista: I do! I think have 3 pairs. But I only wear them during out of town trips or TV shoots. :)

  37. @ ANONYMOUS: It's a good thing that the book shelf has a glass cover so the influx of dust is minimized. I suggest that you regularly wear your shoes so that they don't collect dust. :)
