I worked on a project that has been on my to do list for years. In 2002 Dave made sticker pictures of my shoes and we out them on boxes. Years later we still have the boxes kicking around for various things but none of the shoes. (my feet shrunk almost two sizes the year after I moved back to New England after a decade in Florida)
I got a case of 20 shoe boxes from the container store.(tip when you move and change your address with the post office check the coupons box! You get dozens of fantastic coupons for from places that specialize in new home and organization. 20% container store for one!)
I took pics of all my heels and used my Polaroid printer (I don't think they make this new anymore. I have had it for 3 years)
I put some in my closet. (I put the stickers on the side of some to make it easier to see in the tight space)
The rest live outside the closet. I have about 50 pairs including flip-flops which I have at a least half dozen. Boots live elsewhere in the apartment in their own cabinet.
I almost never pay full price for any shoes except Target. I personally find shoes are something you can almost always wait to go on sale. Marc Jacobs has a 70%/80% off sale (depending on style) every season. Clarks has discount punch cards. I like to try shoes on in store then find cheaper online. Nine West is a good place for that. Sign up for email list for your favorite brands.
Another thing I did this weekend was finally try out a sock bun. If your interested in trying it yourself check out YouTube for tutorials. I think your hair needs to be pretty long though.
It's over the top and I love it!
It cooled off enough to open the porch. The kittens are taking full advantage.
How was your weekend? What did you do? Eat?
