Joking aside, these shoes haven't been worn in years and the faux suede finish came off on my hand while I was cleaning out the closet. Not wanting to toss them in the trash I wondered if I could cover the crumbling suede with something sparkly.
Never having worn glitterized shoes, I said I may as well try it even if it's just an art project and not wearable in the end.
So I decided to give the still comfortable shoes a fancy makeover. First I cleaned and sanded away all the loose bits. Then I used glue and paint with the glitter. The black ice glitter was incorrectly named, as you can see it is actually gray on the back of the shoe on the right.
I went and bought some proper black glitter and will give it a another try and post an update once the shoes are ready for their moment in the dance spotlight. Ahem. Lucy and I will have a turn around the floor to Adele or Van Morrison, maybe both.
I just realized how clunky those heels look, alright, old-ladyish even. My three inch heels have been traded in for more stability, especially needed when driving and sidewalk pounding make the feet scream. I do love a nice heel, just don't have the need for them as often as I did in my fun, yet hard working days.
Now, to just get this song out of my head, love- Love Shack! Enjoy the video, glitter on the highway, glitter on the bed ...
