we have been packing for what feels like 24 straight hours. i suppose i slept for a few in between there somewhere, but the weight of my eyelids makes me feel like it’s been days since i even closed them.


i am surrounded by boxes and i’m someone who prides herself on not having too much stuff. ha. this little apartment was perfectly spartan and spare until everything came tumbling out of closets and cabinets and out from under the bed. et maintenant, c’est le bordel.


but despite the clutter, and in honor of one of yesterday’s purges, i thought i’d share with you the object of my latest shoe love. don’t worry, i’m almost certain i won’t be purchasing them, and if i did, you can be certain some other pair of under-used beauties would be finding a new home at the salvation army.

    I do not envy you, friend. Moving is a long and unsettling process.

    So maybe you deserve the new shoes as a packing reward?

    they are quite lovely. I always find it funny how much stuff comes out of hiding when packing.

    Ugh, I know what you mean. I'd always prided myself on the little clutter I keep around, and then when we moved a few months ago we found we had to keep going back to the store buy more boxes because the STUFF was never ending!

    Hi you… I moved around a lot growing up, so I always look at it as a way to purge (major spring cleaning, you know?), which always makes me feel good in the end, even if it feels overwhelming at times… Anyway. I'm thinking of you and hoping you're not too stressed out…

    Good luck with the move!

    yes the thought of having to pack and move again in my life is what motivates me to purge loads of belongings monthly…

    amazing how much we have that we don't realize we have, no?

    oh good luck with packing. yuck no fun

    Oh my….packing can be so crazy can't it!? In one of our moves we thought we had it all done and were about to drive off…..then we remembered the attic! 😉

    totally loving the shoes…they are perfect! xo

    Lovely shoes.
    Moving is stressful – but change is cathartic.
    Good luck 🙂

  • Reply Joanna Goddard August 12, 2009 at 1:56 pm

    i LOVE the look of these — but i wonder if the wooden soles would be uncomfortable? good luck with the move! xoxo

    Good luck with the move, Erin! I know how difficult and stressful it gets- but settling into your new home will be great, so that's a kind of reward!

    The shoes are so lovely… I think they'd be perfect for Fall!

    i feel you lady. that was me a week ago, finding more and more things to pack every time i'd turn around, even though i try not to accumulate a lot of stuff! good luck with the move, i'm sure it will go more smoothly than mine because it feels like i must have used up all the bad moving luck for everyone!

  • Reply Carissa August 12, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    oh, I hate moving! well really, like you said, it's the packing. I KNOW I have a lot of stuff but when I have to pack it all up I find that the amount of stuff I truly have is absurd! but I am such a pack rat I can't bear to throw anything away… anyhoo, could luck with moving! the good thing about it is it gives us a chance to start fresh, to throw out the old, reorganize, etc…

    oh, and those shoes are adorable. they are just so tall! but I bought a pair of high heeled wedges just a few weeks ago and I love to wear them despite the fact that they make me almost 6 ft tall! 🙂

    I've never been a big shoe person but those are really cute.

  • Reply Camille August 13, 2009 at 2:17 pm

    "et mtn c'est le bordel", trop drôle!
    Courage! une fois que tout sera prêt, ce sera un vrai plaisir!!! 😉

    ugh. packing. it's the worst. wait, actually UNpacking is the worst. we've been in our new place for almost exactly 2 months now, and we still have some stuff in boxes. :/

    but you guys are probably better at that kinda thing than us. 🙂
