DIY holiday shoes | designlovefest

the holidays are officially upon us and one of the things we like best about the season is celebrating with our friends, families and coworkers at holiday parties. it gives us a chance to catch up, reflect on the year that was, sip a cocktail or two (or three) and maybe even hit the dance floor. this year we thought we’d ditch the ironic christmas sweater in favor of something a little more glamorous.

we’ve spent more hours then we’d like to admit on pinterest eyeing the over the top shoe trends that have been hitting the runways as of late. which got us thinking that this would be the perfect time to create a pair of our own to hit the town in. (and that don’t cost us one million dollars)

we found a great, inexpensive pair of high heels with a nice shape here, sourced some baubles at one of our favorite places in the LA fashion district, got a tube of high quality glue and got down to business.

in no time at all we transformed a pair of simple platform heels into show stopping, party ready works of art that we might never take off our feet.

i thought it was really cool that we could find one pair of shoes that allowed us to create three totally different styles that reflected the personalities of the girls in the studio. how FUN WOULD IT BE to have a holiday shoe decorating party!? very fun indeed. snap photos of yours and tag us so we can see your masterpieces.

    Where can I find the jewels ?

    The question that lots of San Franciscans ask is,
    ‘Are expensive HDMI cables greater than cheaper ones’.
    Do not settle that has a lap top that can offer 8 hours or less battery
    time else you simply must find charging point for
    electrical adapter or option for any external extra battery
    power. Where can i buy hdmi to rca a hdmi radioshack he converter This computer cable supports Windows7,
    XP, Vista and Mac OS X operating systems.

    These wall plates are incredibly affordable and supply an excellent look.

    If you’re trying to transfer analog video data with your home entertainment system, you
    could potentially scarcely discover a safer bet over
    a composite video cable.
