5 Creative Ways to Store and Display your Fabulous Shoes.

Before we begin...I need to ask for your forgiveness. I haven't blogged since May. Ahhhh! Shame on me, I know. But before you grab your voodoo doll and punish me for the lack of shoe inspiration I've been sending your way, please be proud of my for massively growing my freelance writing business, tackling some public relations work, and stepping up my Instagram pop-up shop. It's been fun, but the blog has been lacking.

Luckily, I got guest blogger, Kelsey, to help me out this week with a fun story about how to creatively store and display your shoes (and keep you looking stylish, too!). Read on.

Shoes can pose a serious storage problem, even in spacious closets. The average American owns 19 pairs of shoes, while most shoe lovers are guilty of hoarding many more than that. This can too easily cause clutter and set us back 5 or 10 minutes during our morning routines. If you need shoe organization ideas to get a wrangle on your repertoire, Modernize has several helpful suggestions for organizing your shoes and keeping things looking polished.

Shameless Shoe Display.

If you have plenty of shoes and some space to boot, don’t be ashamed to display your entire collection. Shelving your shoes helps keep even your most-worn pairs in good shape. They will also be easy to find when you’re trying to throw an outfit together last minute—though, depending on the size of your selection, you may need a step stool.

Being Transparent.

Shoes are one of the hardest accessories to store efficiently. Their unique shapes make them hard to stack and store without a box, but the boxes hide them from view, making a selection difficult. Solve this dilemma with clear plastic boxes that allow you to see which pair is which. Store them at eye level of below for optimum convenience. Place unseasonal or special occasion pairs on the bottom.

Clean and Sleek.

Sometimes the best storage solution is the no-nonsense option. If you’re not the type to stick your favorite heels on a shelf just to show off your style, buy storage boxes for out of season shoes and a chest of small drawers for in-season pairs.

Minimalist Ă  la Mode.

Not everyone wants to bare their whole shoe collection to the world. Choose several of your favorite pairs of snazzy shoes and show them off with selective open shelving. Color coordinate them with the pops of color in your room or closet. Give each one space on the shelf to make a statement. These are a perfect way to decorate a staging area, fill up empty shelf space, or show off your love of fashion.

Shoe Hideout.

Clothes are so easy to organize and tuck out of sight—shoes, not so much. If you’re a type A person who doesn’t love a busy room or dazzling shoe display, there are still creative options for storing your best shoes. If your closet space is limited and you’re in need of an alternative, look for shoe cabinets that hide your collection.

Shoe closet love.

I will be the first to stand up and admit that I have a fabulous husband. Not only is he smart, funny, creative and patient, but he's pretty darned hot too! I still consider us newlyweds (and probably will for quite some time), because we're always doing thoroughly silly stuff for one another--keepin' things fresh, fun and surprising, ya know? Here's one of my fave pics of us, taken a few years ago during our engagement photoshoot. Good times. That being said, I was still simply breath-taken when I came home from a way-too-long day of work and found that my sweet beau had used his furlough day (yes, it's not just a vicious rumor that we have those all over the place in the state of CA) to transform our hall coat closet into none other than a shoe closet . You heard me right... shoe closet = every girl's dream, ya? We don't really use our hall coat closet anyway, living in such a warm southern California city, so I was thrilled to actually put this space t

Long time, no type.

You guys. Has it seriously been a full YEAR since I've typed up a blog post on here? That is both depressing and encouraging. Depressing--because I feel like I have forgotten about my first "child" my Holly in Heels blog. Encouraging--because it means that I have been suuuper busy with other fun and creative projects, like my continued PR and media copywriting, contributions to Coyote + Oak magazine out of San Luis Obispo, as well as Locale Magazine 's newest San Francisco addition. I have to admit that while these other (paying) jobs keep me busy and on my toes, I do stop and think about my former life as a fashion and lifestyle blogger, and how I miss the creative outlet. To be able to write about whatever topic I choose is certainly a gift. Writing is also therapeutic for me--this blog is like a friend. Like the kind you can call up anytime, talk about the deep stuff and then mention this new conditioner you tried...and then switch back to the meaning of lif
