Who Needs Jimmy Choo's?

I thought I would share with you the latest creation for my wedding - swiftly coming up in only 4 and 1/2 weeks time!

Weddings have a habit of becoming more and more expensive as time elapses. Not only do you have to buy the dress of your dreams, but low and behold you now need an equally pair of dreamy shoes to go with it. I almost fell into the trap of thinking, designer dress, designer shoes but I just couldn't justify paying the equivalent of a months salary on a pair of shoes that will barely be noticed under the vast fabric of my dress, and may only be worn once! Especially when my dream dress was purchased for less than half of it's retail price. How I love the internet!!

Anyway, I happened across a pair of shoes at a designer outlet not far from home. I could see potential straight away and immediately took them home and started work with a needle, some ribbon and a bit of 'bling', found amongst my sewing things. For £15.00 I have now a truly unique pair of shoes. They are just what a wanted and I can walk in them too - pretty important since I will be wearing them from 11am until midnight!!!
