Shoes! Glorious Shoes!

Or should I say. Un-glorious Clutter?!!!

A problem identified is half solved: They say. Well I have a problem with clutter. Oh dear! *clasps hands over eyes*. I decided to sort out my shoes nicely so got some guy to make me a nice shoe rack to accommodate my excesses as my tiny living space was about to explode before my eyes. It turns out that last week I had a wedding to attend and I realized I had no shoe to wear to match my outfit. True. I am not a practical shopper. I buy stuff and realise its not my size or very uncomfortable..... like seriously Who does that?
I also come to the conclusion that I have that many shoes because I never EVER give my stuff away. I hold onto them for dear life. I have had some of these shoes for at least 6 years. About 60% of them don't fit me anymore... but I still keep them. I just enjoy the clutter. I have a problem letting go. I even have empty bottles of perfume hidden in my wardrobe (cos I convinced my best mate that I threw them away...I just can't). Newspaper and magazines from 2003. Even cracked plates. Off licence Receipts from 2004 and clothes tags. Don't ask. Don't ask. Don't judge me.
Then I realized I had a problem when I started buying same design in different colours.

After counselling from a friend, I have decided to give away half the stuff to people who might actually need them. Its hard to think I may never see some of these beauties again. In all of these, I know I could never give out my Lady Marmalade shoe (below). Its a size 41 and I am a 42... but its just so cute.

In the all of this de-cluttering experience, I have learnt to do away with the old and allow room for new stuff.

I've come to the perfect conclusion that a girl can never have enough shoes!don't blame me,blame my sisters...used to be contented with 2pairs of shoes before(black and brown)...then they unleashed the "shoe-ic" nature in me...*sigh*

I have a particular shoe in 3 different colours lol...loved the design and thought it will make sense to have them in different colours...great decision in my opinion....:)

Ah! Shoe heaven. Give them out to me now please. I'm salivating

Ginger said...

Myne Whitman said...

nice shoes

I actually prefer flats
snickers e.t.c

except i am being a diva which only happens on special days.

Mamuje said...

Unfortunately guys I dont really have enough space for all my beauties as I live in a tiny apartment. Hopefully I would be able to afford a bigger place in the near future and move my 'herd'of shoes or better still buy new ones.

@Tisha- I so feel you on the flats. I practically live in flats!

Pls am a 42!

Give me pretty please. "shameless act, i know but allow me this one time to beg"

Good for you. I'm moving to a new city 10 hrs away - so decluttering has become the story of my life since the past month. Go ahead & let it goooo!

Amy said...

Wow. Shoes Galore! You are definitely a shoe diva and I'm glad your retired shoes are going to people who need them :)
P.S. I see you are a fan of Aldos. I love their shoes. They are so comfy for flat footed folks like me!

Lily Johnson said...

Looks like a shoe haven to me. And I just totally adore that favourite of yours. Get yourself some space if you need it. New here and i absolutely love it!
