diy: swarovski crystal studded shoes

Before: Nine West heels

This was something we helped our girlfriend do for her wedding day. Her original dream shoes  were the swarovski crystal studded Christian Louboutins (also known as every other girl on the face of the planet's dream shoes):

She couldn't make sense of the price tag for the one day, so she opted for a more creative and budget friendly project. Put a couple of girlfriends together, a packet of loose swarovski crystals, a tube of clear adhesive, tweezers, a drink or two, and voila! As tedious as it looks, I had such a ball doing it. And yes, she looked every part the glitz and glam we thought she would on her wedding day. Beautiful shoes for a beautiful girl :)

xo, amy.
