While on vacation I purchased these darling Anne Michelle shoes for an obscenely small amount of money. Can you guess what I paid for them? Wait for it…..here it comes….a whopping $5.00!!! Can you believe it?!?
I was so excited, but not for the usual reasons, I did not buy them to wear, I bought them as project shoes. Ever since I saw several of the shoes Marisa made over, on her New Dress a Day blog, I have been dying to try bedazzling some bling on a pair of stiletto shoes of my own. I just needed to find a pair with a reasonable price tag, just in case I messed them up. Even though my knees will no longer let me wear high heals like that, I still love the look and the endless creative possibilities. I think I may have found a use for all those lonely stilettos stashed in the back of my closet.
I adore the shiny black of the shoes and the darling bows but I feel the bow and high heals could use that certain something extra……a substantial amount of bling should do it.
I could not wait to get started; I purchased two boxes of crystal gems, one for each shoe, right after buying the shoes. After looking at the amount of gems used on Marisa’s tutorial I knew one box was not going to cut it, I am not sure two will do it either, I guess I will just have to see how far I can get with one box each, I have to start somewhere. I will let you know how it all comes out once I finish the project. I’ll bet you thought I was going to show you the finished shoe, not just yet.
Thanks for letting me share my cute new project with you, watch for part 2 to see my completed bedazzled shoes, coming your way in the very near future.

See you soon, Laurette
