Lace It Up (Part 1: Process)

If $2000 was like spending $200; I would buy Valentino shoes, but since that's out of the question, I'll just replicate it myself.


I'm into girly things like this. I know it's not something you can wear everyday, but I can appreciate it for what it is and wouldn’t mind having them around. Bust it out every decade or so, then pass it to my future daughter haha. It's very hard to imitate a designer and expect an exact duplicate (unless you have the magic touch). However, I like it when it comes out different than the original. You don’t want it to be so obvious that you knocked it off. You have to be subtle! :)) 

Lace bought from C&J.

Heels bought from Aldo.

cutting, cutting, cutting

Watching Law & Order: SVU as I work.

Pinning the cut-outs to the heels before I sew.

Come back soon!
