My "Something Blue"

These shoes were my inspirations...they are $90 at Zappos but that's more than I was looking to spend and ALL the reviews said how uncomfortable they were that 95% of people returned them.

With a little TLC & Bling these shoes are ready for my big day!

I found these shoes at Target for only $17!
They were perfect other than they were a little dull!

I followed this bloggers DIY tutorial to make the Flowers for the sides of the shoes.
They were very easy and fun to make!

Props to my wonderful fiance for taking the time to put each and every crystal in it's place! I just don't have the patience for projects like that.

$17 for the shoes
$2 for the fabric
$3 fabric glue
$8 for the crystals
TOTAL: $30

I just blogged about my shoe collection, you'll have to stop by for a Latte' and check them out. http://alattewithotta.blogspot.com/2011/02/my-shoe-boott-obsession.html If only I was crafty like you I would make these for myself!!!

  15. How fabulous! Way better than my white satin wedding shoes years ago!
