What a stylish pair of Witch's Shoes......

Anna at Frosted Petunias has such an amazing sense of whimsy and fun. And seeing this fun "arting" possibility gave me the fun time shivers. My very next trip to the thrift store was the search for the perfect pair of fix up shoes. When I saw these very sensible tie up wing tip heels, I knew I had found my entry pair.


I have no before pictures because I came directly home and began the fun process. Following the lines of the wing tip with braids, replicating a Christian Louboutin flavor soul to the bottoms, lining the heels with star spangled Halloween fabric and sparkling the shoes with satin pumpkins, faux black rhinestones and trim all made these "nun" shoes into witchy wonderful heels with attitude.

Orange souled and glittered bottoms, eat your heart out Christian Louboutin

the walk away Wow factor
This altering a pair has given me the get up an go to gathering this years fixings for Halloween.....let the fun begin.

Thanks Anna.

  13. These shoes need to do some serious partying! The shoe itself is perfect but the way you gave it the classic black and orange treatment made it amazing. I really love the paper you used to line the inside. It makes it pop and pulls it all together. Gorgeous! Happy autumn :)
