I recently came across this striking image in Lonny magazine, from designer Jennifer Dyer's home, with its rows and rows of beautifully curated shoes. It's a far cry from the shoe rack in my own closet which houses less than a dozen pairs. The one thing that I do practically have a serious collection of is dresses. A full half of my (shared) closet is devoted to them. From dressy to daytime, I hoard them all.
Stepping outside the closet, so to speak, I think that even amongst the most clutter-resistant enthusiasts of spare, streamlined spaces, everyone has their weakness. Be it books, shoes, beautiful dishes, nearly everyone has something they can't stop collecting and proudly display as the fruit of their labor. What's yours? Let us know in the comments below.
