I was thinking about studding up my Target stripper shoes, to make them look a little less like Shoes From Target, when I saw Rumi's post about her Converse. I was so excited to find my black on black Converse hi-tops in Paris for the same price as I would have paid in the States (Converse usually cost 80 Euros or so...) that I snatched them up. Once I had them, I found they were super hard to wear with pants - especially since black skinny jeans are my daily staple - that they made my legs and feet look like they were painted with black canvas. NOT cute. With tights, or leggings and dresses, they looked great. Anyway, I saw Rumi's Converse and thought that doing mine would be a good test run for my studding skills; canvas is much easy to work with than leather (or pleather).
The sneaks turned out great, though I totally ruined my right thumb nail in the process, it is still sore 2 days later.
Then, last night, I started my heels. I was channeling something Gucci-esque, or as Gucci as Target can get...
I can't decide if I should keep going or not. And please ignore the strange angle of the photos, I do not, in fact, have kankles.
