The best thing about a sunny day

is that I can wear my feathered pumps without becoming a molten bird.

Wearing an H&M faux fur jacket, Vince turtleneck, H&M shorts, Prada sunnies and DIY shoes. My amber necklace is an antique - it belonged to my great-grandmother. My orange necklace is from Banana Republic - no way near as cool. And could these pictures be any more posey? Doubt it.

Since I posted these craftastic shoes I've had many requests for a "how-to" guide and whether or not I'll start taking orders for them. The how-to? Simply glue feathers to your shoes. I chose suede shoes because I thought the texture would be more conducive to gluing, and I used fabric glue which is key to avoiding burns. Me and hot glue guns aren't the best of friends. As for taking orders? I'm sure I could make a couple and then I can post an actual how to guide. Send me an e-mail, facebook me or tweet me if you're interested.
