I got this pair somewhere around 2007 and I wore the hell out of them. They were so bad that I didnt’ want to pay a fortune to get it fixed and was too much of a hoarder to throw away. I probably moved with these shoes about five times and haven’t worn them for maybe 10 years. They were so beautiful when I first saw them in the store and I could not resist them. My dumbass can never take good care of anything so the fish net part ripped from the piping and the heels are all scuffed up. It’s funny because ont the box, the shoes were less than $600 and now if they were new, they’d be over $1,200!
I had some crystals at home for an art project and decided I’d do some DIY stuff. I sat there for 3 hours glueing each crystal on the perimeter of the piping. I realized I needed to do two lines since the rip was pretty big.
I was nervous at first because I didn’t want to mess it up, but realized it didn’t matter because no one would be that close to my feet anyway. It ended up being super easy and the shoes look fantastic.
Now that I’ve found a hobby, I’m searching through my house to see what else I can crystallize!
