I wanted a 20s or 30s look to the shoes but I could not find any within my price range or were still available. The ones I really wanted I found on Pinterest but they're from Nine West like 2 years ago. I perused ebay and etsy to no avail and gave up. I'd have to find something else. I still adore them:
|Imagine me as Gollum right now|
Since I couldn't find them to purchase for myself, these ^lovelies^ became inspiration for the shoes I would finagle. JCPenney had something that worked!
Other than having an inner Tim Gunn "make it work" attitude, I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but seeing the magic Deborah conjurs on Figgie Shoes, I was determined to paint my own.
I found some paint similar to the nifty aqua/ ice blue I liked and went to town
