I am usually not one of those people who is interested in shoes. Of the three pairs of shoes I own, two of them are flip flops. I am all about the comfort. Since getting engaged, I have paid more attention to shoes than I ever have in the past. Specifically, the colored-shoe trend:
I just love the way that little hint of color pops out from under the dress. I knew almost instantly after seeing this that I must have orange peep-toe shoes. The problem: trying to find them with about a half-inch heel. I spent weeks searching online and in stores, only to come up with shoes that were WAY too tall or the wrong color.
Then I stumbled across some custom-painted shoes by PureMystyc on Etsy. A picture is worth a thousand words so, ladies, get ready to drool:
I messaged Melissa, owner of PureMystyc, to ask what my chances were of getting an orange pair just like the red ones she had on her site. I was thrilled when I got the response that she can take almost any shoe and paint it the color you want. The purple ones above were actually white before they were painted! So not only can I get the exact shoes I want, I even get to try them on first before I ship them off to be painted.
As soon as I saw the red shoes above, I was in love with the style. I found them on Target.com and ordered a pair for $25. As soon as they arrive and I am sure they fit, off they will go to Melissa to be painted orange. Of course, she will be doing a custom design on them, but I am keeping that a secret until they are finished! *grin*
Anyone else getting custom-designed shoes?
