Spicy








I've been admiring these shoes from a distnace ever since I saw them stomping down that Louis Vuitton runway. They looked DIYable enough so I decided to look for a perfect pair of heels and just go from there. Well, after a year of making sure to search every shoe store I went through, I finally looked into my closet and it was like a light bulb turned on in my brain. I've had the right shoes all along! All that to say, this is why it's taken me a year to do this project. All I actually needed to buy was the gold rope. I already had the shoes, feathers, tulle, tassels, and beads (which I didn't end up using).


Putting them together was simple enough, the only thing I needed any real crativity with was the way I tied the rope. After that I tied a piece of tulle to each shoe and attached tassels with a small wire. I still have to find a better way of wearing the feathers besides just sticking them in. I'm thinking of some sort of elastic foot bracelet that I sew the feathers onto. It would have a similar look but I'm hoping they would stay better. I was going to add some shell beads but I think there's enough going on already that it would just look messy. What I really like about these is that everything's detachable so I can wear them normally again if I ever got bored of this look, which won't be too soon!
