back in April i purchased these beautiful black suede wedge booties from Urban Outfitters (on sale!) hoping that it would still look as stylish for the coming Fall season. and i think it does. i cannot wait to actually get to wear these shoes. the only problem is i got this annoying DIY idea that i cannot shake off. i am thinking of putting studs (well, actually thumb tacks) on JUST inner side of the shoe. i was gonna call this post "stud surprise" but thought something about it did not sound right.
anyway, i actually even did embellish, but then had a major self-doubting moment and took the tacks off. luckily, this whole playing with the shoe thing did not ruin the suede and luckily, i took pictures. i am having second thoughts about this embellishment. SO indecisive! please help, let me know: to diy or not to diy (hey, StyleUnderdog, i told you i was way cheesier than your jumping post!)
1. really cool looking thumb tacks i saw in the hardware section in my local Walmart (i know you think i'm crazy but i was browsing to look for some washers for jewelry making, but about this later). yes i was in the hardware section looking for jewelry inspiration....
2. you may not see any connection whatsoever but apparently my brain did: burberry has this cool looking shirt with embellished collar, BUT it's all on the bottom side of the collar, so you barely see the studs or stones. i will try to find that picture and show you later.
i don't think i knew about these shoes before i did mine, but it really does not matter. maybe i did and just don't remember? but i do believe ideas sometimes kind of float in the air.
i think mine is sort of a tame version of these two.
oh, and i have to mention i just "met" (discovered online) my "neighbor" (she lives in the area) Annie Spandex and trust me her DIY's are amazing. she did her own version of Jeffrey Campbell shoe.
so tacks are off right now. what do you think?
