@OEC:  Huh? I’ve never heard of this! haha. I thought you were talking about in photos at weddings… like when you see detail shots of shoes and brooches and such. I had no idea people display fancy accessories in their homes… ?

I have never heard of anyone doing this.  I keep my nice shoes in their shoe bags in the boxes they came in, safely tucked away in my closet.  And my expesive jewelry is under lock and key.

I don’t know how to vote in your poll because I don’t necessarily agree with the qualifiers.  But I’d say YES I’d display something I owned like shoes or a purse (I actually have some beautiful shoes, and a sweater from Brazil that I’d display if I could) in a closet space but not just for my eyes, I’d be happy to share/show off to friends.

Unfortunately you DO sound snarky, kind of rude actually but it doesn’t bother me. However, I wanted to vote in your poll, but I’d like to point out the incredibly slanted choice of words.

Why do people display their degree? Or have centerpieces? Why do people display collectibles or figurines? 

I think I am even more surprised (than you about shoe displays) that this is the topic you chose for your first thread!

@OEC:  I don’t think it’s a matter of opinion, your choice of words in the poll do have an underlying perspective already attached.  As such, I am unable to vote because they are not impartial (and doesn’t apply, really to the option I would have picked).

Anyway, I find it troublesome that anyone “displaying a shoe” is generalized as flaunting. 

If you take a look at this page:

http://forum.purseblog.com/louboutin-reference-library/post-photos-of-your-cl-storage-solutions-here-604311.html

You’ll see that there are many types of storage solutions. Some in boxes, some displayed.  Most are inside closets.  Not in the living room or on a mantle (though there is nothing wrong about that). Depending on the shoe, some are limited edition or collectors items (like the one I posted about). Despite not understanding, I think it was kind of presumptuous to jump into the idea that I was displaying my shoes on a fire mantle.  Even if I was (or if someone chose to), I think that your message of what you think of “fancy schmancy” shoes is clear. There is no misinterpretation.

If I had really nice shoes I’d rather just wear them. But I guess displaying them doesn’t mean you can’t take them down and wear them when the occasion arises. It’s not my thing at all, and I’ve never seen it done, but…why not display them if you think they’re beautiful?

No, and I don’t understand why anyone would want to display expensive shoes or jewlery. I think those things are best kept in boxes or safes. Having an awesome closet where you can put all your shoes out isn’t the same as “displaying” something, IMO. To me, “display” suggests keeping something out for everyone to see, and if I walked into someone’s house and saw a pair of shoes displayed on a mantle, I would laugh.

@Boston Bee:  yeah I think that’s why the qualifiers don’t make sense.  If the question is whether you would display your shoes or not and then where?  But assuming someone wants to display shoes or jewlery and then will display them in odd places like above the fireplace just makes it sound rediculous. 

I agree with the pp that the questions are slanted to make people sound rediculous for wanting to display their items.  For whatever reason.

Like I said, I have beautiful items from Brazil that I would love to display.  Not a coming up thing.  I just think they’re beautiful works of art, lovely to look at, and very different from the things we normally buy here in the states.

I have 3 saris which I used to have hanging in a diasplay on my bedroom wall.  If I had Elizabeth Taylor calibre jewelery I would display it on a necklace bust on my dressing table, and if I had a dressing area I might have my more luxurious handbags or shoes on display.  A mantle in the livingroom might be silly, but maybe not.  What if it fits with the decor? what if someone has fashion themed artwork, an antique dress judy, or sewing machine in the livingroom? it could be lovely, and quite appropriate.  Think of Breakfast at Tiffany’s level glam… shoes on display would be perfect.

I commented on the other theread that sparked your idea for this and my jewelry and heels are out in display so I can see them and select from them they are all in my vanity space not on the fire place mantle I also have out perfumes and hair clips/ bows so I can see – also it beats shoving it all in a box
