Week 8: Bedazzin'

After getting a little bit of inspiration from Steve Madden and these puppies... Well hello heels!

...as well as the gals at Honestly, WTF remaking Miu Miu heels...

Honestly WTF's Miu Miu's

...tonight had craft night written in rhinestones!!

My gal CS scoped out the the above version and went identical, purchasing the same Zara booties (on sale!)...

Zara booties!!

...and a medley of multi-faceted stones.

Clear stones!

I went a little more on the technicolor side, using a mix of 5mm and 3mm stones...

Stones & Glue!!

...and snagged these bootie-esque heels from K-Mart on clearance for $9.09!  (They're there now and are actually super duper comfortable!)

K Mart heels!!

Glue stage came next!  We took toothpicks, dabbed them into the glue, put the glue on the shoe, and then added the stones.

CS dabbin'!

After a few hours of gluing...

Rolling Stones!

...we finished up with two super cute pairs of shoes to wear on the town!

Party Shoes!!

CS's are the Vegas booties and mine are the Mardi Gras heels!  (If I only had these when I was in New Orleans last month!!) This can work for any pair of heels that you might have in your closet too, especially the ones that have gotten nicks or scuffs on them - it's a cheap way to go glam!!

New shoes!

I'm looking forward to pairing these with something fun...

Full heeled-rhinestones!

...because they're multi-colored, it should be easy to match!

New heels!!

CS was rocking hers with rolled up jeans.  We were joking that we can only wear leggings and skinny jeans or dresses that are short enough to show off the shoes.

Looking way more expensive than they cost!

A fun night of crafting over pizza and homemade cheese (CS is a genius), catching up (you know, chatting about Dance Moms and Revenge - two total guilty pleasure shows), and discussing what to do for the next night of hand-craftery!!   Already anticipating the next one!!
