Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

Straussed Shoes

I love Christian Louboutin shoes. Especially the crystal ones. But at $3300+ a pair??? Not in my lifetime! Not to mention, sadly, CL shoes are just not that comfortable on my feet. Soooo, I’ve been toying with the idea of straussing a pair of my Jimmy Choo’s. There are some bloggers out there that sell their services, these two come to mind:

Red Soles Reborn

ReDo My Shoe

Both do amazing work. But $800? Sigh. I understand the cost, their time is worth it, unfortunately my budget, well, not so much.

Soooo, I’m going to attempt myself. I bought these flats for around $40, I can get the crystals wholesale, and it’s not like I haven’t done crystal or bead work before. Just never on shoes!


I’m thinking either ruby red (hello Dorothy!!), hot pink ab, or jonquil ab.

Any thoughts?? I will fill in the detail on the shoe and paint them first, and then crystallize them. I’ve been researching and such for nearly 6 months now. I really love the idea of something yellow, I wear alot of purple, and I live purple and yellow together! Well, and navy too!

And now off to run errands. We go to church on Saturday nights, so I’m wearing grubby clothing today. Well, shorts and t-shirt!

I’ll post another entry later, I had outfit changes yesterday, and I want to update the giveaway!

Until next time,

    Ruby red would go really nicely with those! Or maybe silver crystals??
