Shoelry

October 13, 2009

We came across these amazing shoelry a few months ago during our usual blog reading and forgot about them until we saw them again today. This is actually an older concept as Erica Weiner states in her blog: “Shoe clips were first manufactured in the ornament-obsessed Victorian era, when instead of buying multiple pairs of shoes, women dressed up their plain footwear with a variety of detachable bows, buckles, and jewels. Flappers played croquet in rhinestone pairs, fast-talking female reporters clipped them onto their oxfords and Audrey Hepburn used all kinds to embellish her black ballet flats.”

And Smitten loves that Erica brought these back! We’re all about saving money and reinventing the old. Check out the below pics. Erica Weiner sells them on her website. $25 for a closet full of new shoes? Perfect!
