Sara of Short of Something blog (who btw, is like my style twin) and i decided it would be fun to do a shoe collaboration together.
i wanted a two-tone shoe; i found my gray suede wedges at DSW, and here is how they looked originally.
i first, removed the ruffle. then, taped the half of each shoe off with masking tape and spray-painted the other half. i have to admit: spray-painting shoes was not easy. i actually, tried silver glitter spray first.
honestly, i now regret not following my instincts and changing the glitter look. but, it is what it is; and here's how i styled my gray and brown two-toned wedges...
the photos are taken a couple months ago... two-tone drapey sleeveless top from Ann Taylor Loft over some long-sleeved black shirt. black pleated skirt thrifted from Goodwill and also seen in this post. black coat is a last year's purchase from Essex Outlet here locally (actually, i removed the original black buttons and attached the ones you see in the picture).
as i mentioned above, spray-painting was not easy. but i was able to fix problems with a black sharpie.
