Project time!!!

Le sigh.

These just arrived.

My plan? Was to paint green (a shimmery of course!), and strass with green tourmaline and green tourmaline AB Preciosia crystals.

But

But

I love them black too!!!

However, the heels are fairly trashed and the leather is well broken in. Which is why I picked them! My navy Simple 100’s are too perfect to strass over!! And I have a lovely pair of black semi pointed toe heels. Two pairs actually!!

But

But

The red sole against the black. It’s stunning!! I’m in love!

*grumbles*

And I know once I get them done I will love them. I’m just being fussy.

But goodness I am so so so so so so so temped to keep them black.

They are Décolleté in black jazz. The fit, it’s divine!!!

I tried on the Pigalle 120 last Thursday. That shoe is hot hot hot. It was actually quite comfortable. But then again, I have been known to wear 4″ heels to Kindergarten.

Your thoughts on these? And no, strassing the other two pairs of black heels are not an option. One is a Mary Jane style (Jimmy Choo, love them!!) and the other is a d’orsay style with a small now and other details. I also have my black Miu Miu sequin heels.

I do not need these in black!

But I so want them.

It’s okay, laugh at me. I am laughing at myself!

Until next time,

Jules

All done!!

I started these Thursday afternoon, put in about 2.5 hours Thursday, 4 hours Friday, and all day yesterday, probably about 13-14 hours. I totally see why strassed shoes are pricey!!

Will I do this again? Maybe. I don’t know. It was alot of work! My neck hurts!!

But I know what shoes I’m wearing today!!!

Until next time,

Jules
