I have had the HARDEST time finding cute shoes that were ALSO comfortable for an upcoming wedding I'm standing up in. These shoes are very comfortable, but they were really blah. They were a little shimmery gold, but that's it. So, I decided to "pimp my shoes" and add a touch of bling (and I am NOT a bling girl, but these shoes needed it). I got some Swarovski crystals and Gem-Tac adhesive from Jo-Ann, and 2hours later, voila! What do you think???

Very nice!  It's subtle and super sexy - looks like a dancer's shoe.  I had an overactive imagination when you used the word 'encrusted' in your title.  (I read it as 'blinding')  *hehe*

Thank you so much!!! I kept them tame, because I'm not very flashy, and the dress is pretty plain, but the crystals give them just the right amount of glitz and glamour! You should see them in real life - those Swarovski crystals really sparkle!!!
