|Jessica Alba's Shoe Collection Via In Style|
I knew shoes had to be one of the first things to be tackled in my quest to reduce what I own by one third. Plus I keep them all in a plastic bin in the closet; an overflowing plastic bin that I sift through regularly, leaving a mess of shoes on the floor of the closet.
Now the old me would have wanted to create a better storage system One that would make my shoes more accessible, visible and take up less space. Not sure how this miracle would have been performed, but I would have tried. That or I would have continued to have my dysfunctional shoe bin. Instead I am going to reduce the shoes I own. It's that simple.
These are my shoes. I only have 23 pairs. Nothing compared to the excess shown in the opening image, but way more than I need. In fact I'm a little chagrined to say some don't even fit me and some I've had a long time and only worn once or twice. It actually wasn't that hard. Here's the seven pair that got cut.
I took them to Goodwill. Good-bye shoes.
The best part, I rediscovered a pair of black boots I bought after visiting Bogota, Columbia where everyone had black boots. I decided to wear them for the day to see if I wanted to keep them. They pass muster and I have worn them multiple time this week. It's an unexpected bonus of going through my stuff. I'm finding things I forgot I had.
Are you up for the challenge?
The shoe questions:
- Have you worn them in the last year?
- Do they fit?
- Are they comfortable?
- Are they significant (wedding shoes)?
