Before I Go...

So I'm off to China to work on my shoes for the next 8 days (boooooo!) but I wanted to share something real quick!

I've posted about my shoe storage before since many of you ask me what my closet situation is. Well, it wasn't pretty.

Piles of shoe boxes...

Hot mess status.

UNTIL! Ben and I had a crazy idea...
What if we made our home office into a sort of shoe room. (well my half of the office anyway)

Well, we did it. And I freaking love it.

TAH DAH!! Yay!

And with this post, I must go. My flight to China is taking off. I can't blog from China but I'll try to get Ben to post some stuff for me. :)

You know what, I am not into shoes.. for the most part (because I don't wear super high heels), but this is ah-maazing!

SVB said...

Love love love it!

FASHION SNAG said...

Wow Celine, they look amazing! What a great idea and how sweet of Ben. You are one lucky girl. I love seeing all your shoes out and lined up, much better than in the boxes. I need to do this with mine because right now I have stacks of boxes as well. You inspired me! Have a safe flight to China. xo

Jules said...

Beatrix said...

OH MY GOD That is freaking incredible. Amazing idea. Seriously, I scrolled down and literally GASPED.

I swear. Gasped out loud.

People are looking at my funny now, this is what your shoes do to me.

Johanna said...

Your shoe closet is totally a room of worship, kinda like a church but instead of a god its shoes.

In a way you're surrounded by what inspires you to create inspirational footwear for us.

I love your blog, a new post totally makes my day.

xoxo

Laura said...

I realize how many great shoes you have because you always such fab posts, but when they are all put together like this....GASP!!! Your Louboutin (spelling?) collection alone makes me want to cry.

hiyaluv said...

LOVE your shoe collection!!! I also love your signed Louboutin box on your desk-fabulous touch!

Smiles,

Elene said...

365 Fashion Rehab said...

I also gasped! I mean take my breath away gasp. But I am sure you have worked very hard for that insanely amazing collection. It is something to aspire to! It is nice to see them so organized and getting the spotlight they deserve.
Congrats!

Holy flying stilettos. THAT IS AMAZING. Haha. I think I would die upon entering your office/shoe closet. <3 <3 <3

♥Lola said...

I love love your new office :) It's like my dream! I have the chair, so I'm on my way....

Brett Sutcliffe said...

Be honest sister. This is the first time I have seen someone has more shoes than me. I mean just common people not stars..
Love your office..I will consider this idea as well. Love your shoes!!!!!!!!

lizzie said...

holy shit! that is amazing!!

As soon as I saw this, I took a pic with my phone and sent it to my husband. I'm sure he's going to say, "NO WAY!!" LOL Beautiful collection of shoes!!

AttemptingStyle said...

amazing... i need to do something similar. right now i've banished all my books to my basement to make room for shoes in the bookcase... not quite as chic (or convenient, as I love to read).

Irina said...

Would it be too creepy to have me buried in your office? Please? ^^

Seriously, you're one lucky lady with a bunch of lustworthy shoes, Celine. I imagine now that you're having all your shoes dislayed in front of you, lack of inspiration might no longer be an issue ;-)

Louise said...

OH WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW LOOK AT ALL THOSE BEAUTIFUL SHOES!!!!!!! I am currently a very unnatractive shade of deep green! You are one lucky lady. Thanks so much for sharing these pics with us - you have provided me with so much inspiration. Anyways - I've been reading for a few weeks now but this is my first time commenting ... so hi!

You've just been served said...

Love it!!!! Good idea lady!

Anonymous said...

Not sure if you know, but you have create a bunch of blog posts and time them to post at future dates. That way, your blog will never go on a "hiatus"!

Lolo said...

It looks fantastic!
I bet picking a pair of shoes to wear is much easier now too. If all of mine were in boxes I'd forget about half of them.

WendyB said...

It's so decorative! I'm impressed.

Spookie said...

I love it, but do you have to dust them?

Andrea said...

OMG. That is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen!! And really, it's so quirky, so cute, great homage to your shoes and so nicely laid out. Soo cute!! Love it!! I may have to steal your idea and do a little revising of my own storage situation. Very clever!!

The Queen of Hearts said...

The Sea Monster has NOTHING on your shoe game. <3


well after this, I should think nothing of falling down stairs

Gladstone Lawyers said...

I have been seen that kind of plastic shoes store boxes are very useful and good for shoes. Now I am thinking to get some

NicoleMarie said...

looks like you need a Sex and the City closet..

Jenny Brewer said...

shoe heaven! so nice to see your blythes, too!

PINK HAIRED PRINCESS said...

I just posted about my shoe storage recently too; love yours but have to agree with Spookie, would be too much dusting for me! Although they look more pretty on the shelf, it's more practical to keep them boxed.

Nayyme said...

That is so amazing, much better than wallpaper :) I also love that chair, looks so cute

StyleScrybe said...

I'm officially jealous for 2 reasons. #1- you've solved your shoe storage problem, while I'm still finding creative places to hang mine by the heels. #2- you own the Betsey Johnson Chelsea.

Anyway, have a brilliant time, even if it is for work (and seriously, I'm sure it could be worse!)

I see you have a certain pair of shoes in a variety of colours! Do you have a height you like most in heels?

http://toruu-tania.blogspot.com/

Melissa said...

Absolutely gorgeous. I want to do that now! And now you can see all your shoes so you can pick the ones you want to wear easily! Shoes are unbelievably beautiful.

PS: I adore those multicolored striped pumps in the bottom right of the first picture of your newly organized shoes. They're great! Who makes those?

wale said...

What about the shoe boxes? do you throw them away or do you have to find a place to store them?...That has always been the dilemma with my shoes: "to keep or not to keep" ...

Landel said...

OMG! You're so lucky you get to go to China! I wanna go back there, though. :-)
