Studded High Heels: How-To

Studded heels and ankle boots are everywhere and I finally decided to DIY my own pair.
It ended up being very simple and didn't take long at all.

I started out with a pair of plain black vintage heels.

I found the pearls in the scrapbooking section of the craftstore. They were more along the lines of what I wanted then the rhinestones I found everywhere else. They only cost a few dollars and there were more than enough to cover the shoes (to my taste), and then some.

The with just some small dabs of crazy glue I began sticking on the pearls until I was satisfied with the overall appearance.

I'm very happy with how they turned out! I'll be wearing them tomorrow.

    i'm thinking about doing something similar, but to a black boyfriend blazer! maybe put studs or on the lapels...we'll see. you've def inspired me to try my own DIY. :)

  3. Thanks paige! It's so nice to hear you've been inspired. Studs seem to be all over the place lately and it's a good way to spruce up an old item of clothing.
