For example, I thought these were darling. Ordered them. They arrived -- darling. But wait.....
(I returned them)
So I started thinking. I have a perfectly comfortable pair of black high heels (by high I mean 3 1/2 inch heel). That I can walk in. Dance in. But I needed a way to jazz them up.
I remembered shoe clips. From the 80's, yes. And I started experimenting.
Here's the tutorial I used for the flower. I didn't go to all the trouble she does in the tutorial for the backing piece, just hot glued it to some felt and called it good.
I bought some shoe clip hardware on etsy. Here's who I bought mine from. They arrived quickly, they stay on my shoes, they don't hurt my feet. Enough said.
and for the wedding, I went with vivid yellow!
For these I alternated satin and chiffon and it gave the flower a nice texture.
Best of all? I have Really Cute Shoes for about $10. That I can walk in.
