shoe closets

Along with vacuum packing all my woolly sweaters, coats, hats and scarves last week, I had a very enjoyable time switching over my shoes. Because there’s not much storage space in my London apartment, I keep out of season shoes in a huge box, hidden away in a cupboard. It’s like shoe Christmas doing the switchover, re-discovering the pairs I packed away some six months previously.

I also add in my new season buys to the mix and it always makes me laugh to see the difference between the two sets of shoes. In winter my footwear is almost all black, relieved only by the odd pop of scarlet or pink (photo above*). In summer I retire nearly all the black pairs, bar a few pairs of pointy toe stilettos.

So here are all those summer shoes in more detail, with stockists links if they are current season:

I LOVE your shoe collection, especially the summer styles. I used to wear heels all the time but since having children they have been consigned to weekends/special nights out. Sadly it’s not possible to chase three kids on scooters in four inch stilettos!

I’m looking forward to getting all of my summer clothes and shoes out again. I think that’ll have to a be a task on my list of things to do this weekend! It’s always a lovely surprise to find the items that you’d completely forgotten about.

Your shoes are fab, but how do you keep them so clean?!! And as a Londoner, how do you wear heels everywhere without ruining the heels by sticking them down cracks in the pavement? (I recall that you drive so no need to wonder how you manage in the Tube..!)

loved this post- and i wish I had room to display my shoes to greater effect- I think I’d wear more pairs more often as well- rather than always popping on the pair I wore the day before!

I love how you have displayed/stored your shoes – I’m moving house soon and have pinned this for inspiration.
Interesting question from Emily about cracks in pavements/heels – I have but almost ruined a pair of loubies to a nasty pavement yesterday…

I’m drooling over your shoes and hurrah-ing the lack of hideous platform stripper heel types but like Emily, I am wondering how you keep ’em so damn clean in London? Perhaps they’re not on very high rotation because they’re all a bit special? Tho’ I do recall a lot of LFW mentions of the the white pointy JW Andersons.

I bet it’s the classic Londoner trick… ballet flats to get there, on arrival change into lovely heels, then stash the flatties in a Pliage and check them into the cloakroom.
I keep my work heels in boxes in my desk drawers, so they actually never leave the building!

I really want those yellow courts!

All of your shoes are in such great condition! I only have a few pairs of heels, so I wear each pair more often and they end up getting more run-down unfortunately. Great collection!
