Marie Shoe Soiree

Welcome to my Marie Shoe Sioree! I am fashionably late because of my sweet little one who has been sick and needed Mommy's attention. Luckily I had to design and photograph some shoes which are her favorite things on the planet so eventually she let me get to work.
This first pair of Pink Frill Shoes were purchased for $1 at my favorite consignment store. They were originally purchased for $75 from Bandolino. I embellished them with my Seam binding Crepe paper frills and a touch of Vintage rhinestones.

My second pair of purple shoes were also purchased for $1. They are more of a modern day Marie shoe that are simple enough to be worn with a frilly top and jeans.
I had some amazing artists join me for this Soiree. Please make your way around the event by visiting these ladies beatiful blogs to see more photos of the Magnificent Altered Shoes Created.

I hope this opens up your mind to how we can be our own shoe designers during these times where Everyone is on a new tighter budget. During these times is when the True creativity is experienced. When you are given limited funds and supplies is when you are prone to come up with your masterpieces.
