|Possibly my favorite 2014 shoe so far.|
For quite some time I've been coveting this gorgeous but out of my price range sterling silver Heather Elizabeth Designs bracelet. There are also some great items in Fleurty Girl's Ain't Dere No More line, including these great magnets. As much as I loved the look of those magnets, I didn't want to pay $15 for a set of seven to decorate a Muses shoe, and they're relatively easy and cheap to make.
I bought a bag of glass stone "decorative accents" at Michael's (I think about $2/bag; I also bought a fresh tube of Recollections glitter in "Muse" that day, and probably used a coupon on the glitter rather than the stones, but you could of course use a coupon):
I pulled up a bunch of logos online, and printed different sizes and versions of the logos to experiment with. Included in my first round of Ain't Dere No More glass stones: Pontchartrain Beach, Bali Hai, Rosenberg's (1825 Tulane!), DH Holmes, McKenzie's, Dixie, Schwegmann's, K&B, Falstaff, Jax, Maison Blanche and Mr. Bingle:
For this shoe, I used one of a pair of size 6s that were on clearance at Target ($8.98 for the pair)

*But is a testament to the kindness of others that I ate from no less than three King Cakes that season nonetheless, two that were sent from NOLA and one which was brought back to Memphis by my loving husband.
