Back in October of last year, I turned a pair of Studio Workboots (see the monsters above) into something a little more creative with the help of my friend Margo's fab shoe company, Sassy Feet. I had a request from my adorable niece Gaby to create the same boot in something that we call : Gaby Glitter Pink. Quick! email Sassy Feet again and have their product sent STAT. This was a Shoe Emergency. I was looking forward to test driving their glitter paints. I couldn't imagine a paint that would live on a shoe (let alone a WORK BOOT) that wouldn't shed and chip off all over the place. Well my readers, they did it. I mixed my own color recipe using their delicious color choices and nervously applied the Glitter Paint. I did a few coats, but after just ONE, it was clear that this paint was a winner. No shedding, chipping or glopping during application. SCORE! Now Gaby is riding the boardwalks in Southern California on her Cruiser, looking like the Rock Star that she is.
Okay. So: Mission Accomplished. Thanks to Sassy Feet and their wonderful products. I'm thinking about getting some cheap little ballerina flats at Payless and going silver. Not glitter silver, but whispery silver for summer. What do you think?
