Flowering Feet

After being inspired by this recent Fashion is Spinach post on the shoes below...



... this recent shoe purchase...


... and a weekend trip to Joann's...

I came up with a 42 dollar version of my own! (sure beats the $328 price tag of the original!)

Added Bonus: The large-and-in-charge flowers draw your attention away from my veiny feet and cankles.... right?! RIGHT?!?!?!
*Sigh*
Good thing I didn't quit my job to become a foot model.

Quite a bit more literal than it's muse, my version adds a bit of humor to any otherwise drab or stuffy ensemble. I can't wait to wear them with black skinny jeans and a crisp white shirt!

Best of all, I hot-glue-gunned the flowers to little metal alligator clips, so they can be removed easily at any time and added to the strap of a pretty dress or a dark handbag that needs to be pulled over into Spring!

I think you did a great job with this, but I fail to find the cankles you speak of. Those Chie Mihara's are divine, aren't they? (Sigh dreamily).
