@mrsbruff2b:  Wow. Thanks to your link, I just lost the last 3 hours browsing purse forum!!!  I think I found a new addiction, when my husband cannot pry me from the computer I am going to blame you. =P

I thought that purse rooom I posted above was amazing… THIS is an amazing closet, house, everything.   http://forum.purseblog.com/your-bag-showcase/welcome-to-pbcs-lil-french-boutique-closet-238150.html

I’d rather display them on my person. 🙂

My new closet will have a few designated shoe shelves. So they will be on display, in my walk-in closet. It’s less about “display” then about having them readily accessible….

@Petite_Fraise:  I wish I had the space for that! I’ve got some new racks that I’m putting out today.

Shoes can be art!  I keep my pumps at work, and actually have about 10 pairs “displayed” on the bottom two shelves of a bookcase in my office.  (They’re turned around so that the heels, and not the label, faces out.  Not that the labels are fancy ones, sadly.)  I am known at work as being very serious, so the shoes are always a good conversation starter.

I have a lot of shoes; about 50 pairs of ‘regular’ high-street shoes, then over a dozen pairs of high-end designer shoes.

My ‘regular’ shoes take up half of one of my wardrobes and are ‘displayed’ on a shoe rack; because they’re cheaper, I’m not too fussed about keeping them in boxes, and this makes it easier to find them.

My designer shoes are all kept in their boxes and tissue paper, and are on top of my other wardrobe. I guess all large stack of designer boxes could look ‘showy’ if they were somewhere else, but, they’re in my bedroom, which no-one goes in.

I find the idea of displaying them really odd… Showi-ness aside, much as I love shoes, to me they aren’t really a ‘design statement’, they are footwear. That and as I said, I take great care of my shoes, so wouldn’t want them scattered about the house gathering dust.

@Regina Phalange:  I don’t know; to me, both are equally showy and ostentatious.

I have a BA and MA, and top A-level grades; I am also working towards a PhD. I have never and will never display my certificates; I find it a bit showy. I know I’ve achieved those things, as do those close to me, so I find displaying them a bit strange.

@barbie86:  I wouldn’t display my degree in my home either, but I can understand why people would (moreso than a pair of heels, anyway).

I think the OP of the previous post about looking for shoe forms was looking to display them in her closet. I don’t see anything wrong with that at all. I don’t do it but to each her own…

@PinkMermaid:  I do think OP is being a little snarky especially if you read the thread that this one was inspired by.

I find this really odd, also. My nice things are all neatly packed and stacked and stored correctly and neatly… inside my wardrobe, for my eyes only!

@barbie86:  … but I do display my degree certificates and graduation photos in my home office. They are my marks of professional achievement, so I display them within my work space. I suppose by displaying them then I am also making the statement “this is who I am”. But I’d rather be known for my degrees than my shoes… I think it’s a bit sad if you think expensive shoes and clothes show who you are.

EDIT: That said, if I ever got a huge house with a big dressing room area, I might display my things there and make them look pretty, like in the pictures a PP posted. But that’s different, because my dressing room area would also be a private space, for my eyes only.
