"And now", Max cried, "Let the wild rumpus start!"

The shoe project is finished! Here are the ones you have voted to toss!

Now, upon careful consideration, I have voted to toss a few pairs, based on EXTREME discomfort. I think you'd agree that sometimes, there's no gain in pain.

And two because I flat out JUST don't wear them. They shouldn't occupy space in my closet!

And only one pair am I tossing because they're worn out and need replacing. I'll be on the hunt as I re-enter the shoe purchasing world. (I STILL have not bought a pair!)

It has been an amazing journey. The end result of my closet, you ask? Drum roll please....
Do you see that? Emptiness on the top shelf? Is it time for a few new pairs? Honestly I've brought it down to roughly 33 work appropriate shoes. Amazing right? This closet did not look this amazing when I moved in. It was SALMON from ceiling to mom painted it white and my uncle hung extra shelves to fit my shoes :) I have bags and boots at the bottom. This has inspired me to purge throughout my condo...clothes, dishes, nick nacks...I want a fresh start in my condo, sans clutter, sans mystery boxes at the top of the closet.

  1. Ahhh!!! I am in pain please don't toss the following:
    #1 - too darn cute and have a great color combination
    #7 - There is a difference between animal print flats and heeled ones..
    #12 - These jazz up your outfit so well and you've tossed enough beige ones already.
    #16- How can you toss the ones you bought over Grocery !!!

  2. I LOVE IT!!! Your closet looks great and I'm so happy that you are living in a clutter free world! Happy shoe hunting :)

  3. Dipti---
    #1-They are damaged beyond repair :(
    #7-They would belong in the category of not every wearing them if they weren't voted off.
    #16-They had a good run, but I've moved on :)
    #12-I am considering keeping these, actually. I reviewed the votes from the original post and it was around 62-7! How can I toss them?

  4. On another ..scary note. Is this the end to your blog? Ahhhhh!!! I am in more pain

  5. Note to readers: the blog is subtitled "daily does of my and fashion". IT WILL CONTINUE!!! :)

  6. wow you are tossing so many shoes that it pains my feet. However, when I saw the pics of your now closet it seems like you won't even miss them one bit!
