Janel Parrish may stick to neutral basics when it comes to her day-to-day wardrobe, but step into her shoe closet and it's easy to see that the Pretty Little Liars star's footwear philosophy is that more is more. "I love shoes! I have a serious shoe problem," the actress admits to Us Weekly of her mounting shoe collection, which currently numbers between 35-40 pairs from designers including L.A.M.B. and Brian Atwood. "I wear only, like, six of them . . . but I like having the option of knowing I can wear it them if I want."

Working with stylist Reichelle Palo to create her "funky chic" daytime and red carpet looks, Parrish -- who plays Mona on the ABC Family series -- explains that she sticks to a neutral color palette to let her shoes spice up an outfit. "I have a lot of black boots, and I love stilettos because I'm 5'2 so I practically live in heels," the petite Hawaiian-born star, 24, explains. "I love to wear little black dresses with hot pink shoes or emerald green shoes just to mix it up a bit."

One of the most coveted, well-worn pairs of shoes in her closet are Parrish's suede Steve Madden calf-length wedge boots. "I can wear them with anything and they look good," says Parrish, who looks to Lea Michele and Blake Lively for style inspiration.

As extensive as her current collection is, the PLL actress continues to lust after one luxe label. "I still don't have a pair of Christian Louboutin's, so that's my next [purchase]!" she tells Us.
