Which brings me to these shoes I always thought were disturbingly unattractive, but very comfy. I gathered all my art supplies that rendered things gold and selected deep gold acrylic paint to rub on the multi-surfaced shoes with my finger (heh heh goldfinger). Now they're still comfy and disturbingly golden!
Next up is a pair of soft navy leather shoe/boots. Very plain. The top "cuff" had a subtle quilted stitch so I sewed on little pearl beads at each intersection with invisible thread. I added huge pearl beads to the end of the laces which are basically laughable, but fun.
And finally an old pair of black lace up combat boots with a damaged top. I covered the tops with a scrap of black stretch velvet to form cuffs. Pretty snazzy.
Last but not least, another pair of cheap reading glasses received the goldfinger for an antique look. luv them.
