YOUTUBE inspired spiked heels

Now I love to improvise when it comes to some things fashion, then I believe some things can not be faked.  However, it is almost always about Presentation + Confidence.  I happen to be a Non- conformist so I do not allow Fashion as much as I love it or trends to Limit me Artistically expression of self.  So I love to create and trying new things and this project feel under both categories.  As you will see in the images bellow I have attempted to make a studded pair of wearable pumps. Once the shoes were done I did realize that they are now about one full size ti half a size big.  I bought the shoes in my right size 8.  So if your going to try this keep that in mind.  These shoe were comfy before i added the studs and are still quite wearable now that the screws are on the back.  One think I will be doing to make them more fitted will be to add an elastic strap right across the top to keep the shoe from flip flopping missing up my sexy.  We cant have that.  LOL

These are a basic pair of pumps purchased from Charolette Russe I love the Heel.  I thought these shoes would look hot with spikes along the back so I
 decided to add some of my own.

This is after applying a few spike the shoe, I used a regular drill for the wholes, then screwed the spikes in.

Coming along nicely

Now for the people wondering what it looks like on the inside!  Basically you wanna screw  the spikes as far as they will allow you to go.

These is the finish product.  As I thought the spiked heel went grate with the spikes.

E-Bay Shopping Designer for less

If you like Designer brands for less maybe you should consider buying from a celebrities closet!!  Celebrities go through spring cleaning of the wardrobe too.  Think of it as someone else old things can be your new things.  Remember these could have been gifts to the celebrity they didn't want, or had already, they could have worn it for a photo shoot.  Very lightly worn items.  Im only sad I do not wear a XS in clothing or a Euro 37 in shoes, But if I did these would be my choice.  Check it out!!!

KiKi's Candles

Have you ever had an experience buying candles that smelled amazing once you opened the lid or while you were in the store but once you burned the candle at home there was not a trace of the candles fragrance around?  Well I have enough for any of us.  And I must admit its very annoying.  I love candles especially good candle that makes a whole average size room light up with its aroma.  Its nothing like sitting in a clean house with some clean linen fragrance filling the room while sipping your MOSCATO!  Yumm!.  So I recently found an up and coming brand  I love!  I love to support quality of name brands or quantity any day.  So because I know sharing is caring below you will see the name of these candle I cannot get enough of unless its 90+ degrees out side.  LOL
