These just arrived.
My plan? Was to paint green (a shimmery of course!), and strass with green tourmaline and green tourmaline AB Preciosia crystals.
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!!
The red sole against the black. It’s stunning!! I’m in love!
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,
First, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!!
Second, I didn’t blog yesterday for a very specific reason. I was finishing my shoes!!! This is going to be very picture heavy!
First coat (a flat red. I used house paint)
Paints I used
Gold coat! (beside the red)
Here’s my crystals (about 7450 total)
And progress shots! I used 20ss, 16ss, and 12as Siam AB crystals from Preciosia. And 9ss & 7ss Siam.
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,
