i'm about to loose a lot of business, but...


Has everyone headed over to OnceWed today to see the stunning wedding of Jordyn and Bradley, shot by the handsome Tec Petaja? I had the pleasure of meeting Jordyn and Bradley last night while they were in town to see our friends :: plug, plug :: The Civil Wars, held at Billy Reid. So of course I had to ask Jordyn if she made the lovely combo on her shoes. Well here you go ladies; here's the secret to beautiful embellishments like these...

Jordyn bought a pair of vintage clip on earrings (for $7.50), hot-glued three guinea feathers to each piece, and voilĂ ! Now, you can clip and position the embellishments how you'd like. Easy, removable shoe goodness! As for clip-on earrings, Etsy is a great resource for this, but so is your local Goodwill, flea market, or antique shop if you feel like putting some leg work into it. Guinea feathers are at craft stores (Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc.) and on-line.

Amazing, huh?

Wow, what a great, simple idea! I love the little extra oomph that these clips give to otherwise (a little) bland shoes. Thanks so much for the easy diy tip! I'll definitely be hitting up my local Goodwill tonight!
