I love this shoe.  I really do.  The platform and the heel are amazing.  I love the Mary Jane strap because it adds just a bit of extra oomph to the shoe.  It's the Rebecka from Brigitte Bailey by Pour La Victoire.  The pair of shoes used the nude patent as the base.. Nearly 8000 Silk Swarovski Rhinestones were used to create these gorgeous shoes and it took about 40 hours.

I love them. Where do you get your crystals from? Do you plan out the shoe or just attach the crystals at random switching sizes when you feel like it? Also are they hot fix or glued down?

Thanks!

I got the crystals from Dreamtime Creations.  They have great prices and really fantastic customer service.  I just attach the rhinestones at random, starting from one point and filling in from there.  They are glued down since the base shoe is patent leather.  You can try hotfix on a fabric, but I think it would be more time consuming then glueing.
