Peek Show

Today's post is a peek into my closet. I currently live in an apartment and when I first moved in, I thought these slanted wire shelves were odd. But now I consider them prime real estate for my nicer and frequently used shoes. When I buy my own place, I plan to devise something cool, but this works in the meantime. I hope you enjoy the tour!

Row 1:
1 - Saks Fifth Avenue Espadrilles (new, purchased on clearance at Saks outlet for $30)
2 - Talbot's "Riri" {here} (purchased on clearance for $37)
3 - Nine West "Tapestrj" (purchased at TJ Maxx)
4 - BCBG "Agreice" {here} (purchased on clearance at Saks)

Row 2:
1 - Christian Louboutin "Decoltissimo" (thrifted)
2 - Christian Louboutin "Decollete" (purchased with discount by opening Saks card)
3 - Brian Atwood "Sasha" (purchased on clearance at Jeffrey's)
4 - Miu Miu Paillette Peep-toe Pumps (thrifted)

Row 3:
1 - LK Bennett "Idina" {here} (purchased and shipped from London in 2009)
2 - Talbots "Gabbi" {here} (purchased on clearance for $37)
3 - Talbots "Lyra" {here in black} (purchased on clearance for $35)
4 - Elie Tahari "Yvonne" (thrifted)

Row 4:
1 - Shelly's London (purchased on clearance in London)
2 - Studio Pollini (purchased on sale in Sicily)
3 - Stuart Weitzman "Extra" (purchased at K&G for $40)
4 - Brian Atwood "Divine" (new, purchased on clearance at Saks outlet)

As you can see, I've used my budgeting and thrifting powers to purchase almost all of these shoes. There's only one pair I paid for full price! :-)

Mary Ann--You have a gorgeous and well-rounded shoe collection. I love your CL's but I think my favorites are the LK Bennett Idinas. I got the same pair because of your internet post. :)

Okay, you are my shoe idol. I just found your blog via Marion. Not only do you have fabulous taste, but you took it to the next level and didn't pay full price for them! Drooling :)
