Sounds fun! My advice- if you can, do it in such a way that if you give up on the project halfway through it will look intentional ;D you are a braver woman that I

Godspeed, you brave woman!

I have my shoes already, but I’ve been thinking about strassing a pair of Chuck Taylors to change into later in the evening… but it is so far down my priority list right now I don’t know if they’ll actually happen. (Gotta do those invitations first!)

http://www.the-crafts-outlet.com/servlet/StoreFront before you get started I wanted to pass this website on to you.  Super cheap rhinestones.  It will save you tons money and time.  I think I spent, less than $30 on all my rhinestones and had lots left over.  They beat joann and michaels even with coupons.  The only thing is if you live in the states it take about a week or two to receive because it is a Canada based company.

Here is the pair I started, All I have left is the heel, which I’ve been going back and forth on weather or not to do it in blue.  What do you think, should I make the heel a different color?

Wow!! I wish I could find a way to make this fit in with my dress!

My feet will be totally exposed in my dress, and it is taking on a vintage feel (I’m sewing it myself) so I’m not sure how to blend this look in, but I am soo excited to see what you come up with!

Oh I will look at that site too.  Also, David Tutera has things at Joannes and he has rhinestones too that you can just peel and stick.  They are only in clear though.  Don’t remember how much it was though.

It was not difficult.  Time consuming yes!  A couple a nights with Lifetime and it wasn’t bad at all.  My SO works nights so it gives me plenty of time to myself and I got control of the remote!

@Eyecandy: Really cute shoes.  I have a couple of questions. What size rhinstones did you order from that website? What type of adhesive did you use and what was the material of the shoe that you adhered the rhinestone onto?
