D.I.M. shoe makeover

I bought these shoes Black Friday a few years ago. (ok, I bought them and about 7 other pairs at the same time) They were originally a pair of plain black pumps. I thought I should have a pair of basic black shoes. Problem was, I never wore them, they were too dull. So, after sitting on a shelf for a couple years I decided to give them a makeover. I pimped them out. I painted them a bronze colour using nail polish and then used a Q-tip and nail polish remover to remove patches of the colour to create a kinda leopard print effect. I then raided the Grumpy Danish's tackle box and used some feathers from his fly making kit and glued them on. I finished them off with some jewels from the fabric store. Boring no more! lol, as you can see I toned them down by pairing them with black & gold sparkly tights.


  1. Wow! That's really fantastic! I love them!!! And I like how you said you pimped them out :)
