Monday...err...Tuesday Poll - How Many Shoes Do You Have?

So, my co-worker asks me the other day, "How many pairs of shoes do you have?" I don't really think of myself as a big shoe person, though I have been making more of an effort lately to grow my shoe stash. So, when she asked me how many shoes I had, I thought...not thaaaaat many. I told her I didn't know, and counted them up after work that day...to my surprise, I have somehow accumulated 51 pairs. 51! How did this happen? I thought I had a nice simple shoe collection:



Oh yea...and then there's that new shoe storage solution I put up a couple months ago...


...and some boots that didn't quite fit the kit...


...and some new shoes here and there that haven't quite found a place to be stored...


Ok, ok! So I have a lot of shoes! Nothing wrong w/ that, right? So, I ask you fellow shopaholics...just how many pairs of shoes do you own?

I was thinking today was Monday when I thought up this poll b/c I had yesterday off, so sorry for the delayed post...I've been trying to keep my polls to Monday, but didn't want to wait till next week, so...vote on ladies!

nice shoe storage. does each pod fit a pair or is it just one shoe?

no matter how many pairs of shows i have i can always find another pair i need. right now i want the cole haan nike air mary janes, i tried them on and they're super comfy.

Shopaholic D said...

ShopDiary, Each pod fits a pair, and they come in different sizes - some are for flip flops, some for heels, some for boots, etc. The pods slide in and out really easily too...it's a pretty cool system!

FashionFoodCulture-Life, those are super cute. Are you going to get them?

I tend to be a vintage-clothes-a-holic and the reason I actually have more than 25 pairs is because I also collect vintage cowboy boots,I guess I have about 10 of those,so that puts me at about 35 pairs of shoes. Hmmm

Shopaholic D said...

ooohhh...that'd be interesting to see! you should post some pictures of your collection on your blog

I've just gained a whole new level of respect for you. :) Just seeing it makes me want to ask you to photograph each pair. Hehe...that's the shoe-aholic in me!

Shopaholic D said...

Heehee...I know Enid! I'm going to have to invest in a second shoe kit or something unless i can find a few pairs to giveaway or sell on ebay

May I humbly recommend the following Storage boxes for shoes/boots.
They are rather fabulous for your wonderful collection :o)

(if the link does not appear correct, go to www.vivaladiva.com and select Accessories, then Storage solutions.)

I was glad to see I'm not the only one who had to check the 101+ box in that poll. I just can't help myself. I must have at least ten pairs I've never even worn, which is even more shameful.

Your collection looks gorgeous, by the way. Lots of heels, always good!

Shopaholic D said...

Hey Gemma, thanks for the compliment! I'm kinda short, so I do love my heels :) 101+ ...that's not really too bad...I still feel like there are lots of shoes I'm missing so if I had what I considered a "full collection," I'd probably be at 101+ too! I also go through my closet regularly to see what I don't wear any more and can donate, so that helps me keep the # down
