Shoe Bling

The other day I was reading on Bridalwave about Pretty Pink Toes, a British store that sells shoe clips. I knew I had seen something similar in the U.S. before and that's when I remembered Absolutely Audrey. A lot of times it's easy to find a plain pair of white or ivory satin shoes on sale but sometimes they lack pizazz. Shoe clips are a great way to turn a plain pair of shoes into something special. The shoe clips at Absolutely Audrey retail for around $20-$35 which isn't a horrible price, but if you are looking for something a little bit more budget friendly you should check out EBay. I found a ton of vintage shoe clips there and many of them were selling for only $3 or $4 dollars. Remember that any pair of clip-on earrings can do the trick as well.

1st Row L-R: Absolutely Audrey, Ebay Seller lilac.fairy (these are two shoe clips that can fit together to form a pin), Absolutely Audrey
2nd Row L-R: Ebay Seller kdoug7 (these are french shoe buckles), Ebay Seller freetimeinoregon (this is just one vintage shoe clip but it would make such a fab broach for a purse or ribbon), Ebay Seller vintagestuff62 (also french made)
3rd Row L-R: Absolutely Audrey, Ebay Seller autumnravensage, Ebay Seller dianec156 (this is a set of two)
