Googly Eye Shoes

Googly ShoesI could never be a fashion designer because there’s no way I’d be able to charge $1,595 for a pair of googly-eye shoes and keep a straight face.

The Déjà Vu heels by Christian Louboutin are a cute concept, but boy are they ripe for DIY-ing. Get yourself an inexpensive pair of pumps (look at thrift stores for extra cheapy goodness), pick up an assortment of googly eyes, and you’re in business.

You can stick the eyes on temporarily using removable glue dots and experiment with placement on the shoes. When you finally find an arrangement you like, use super glue or a speciality adhesive like Shoe Goo to attach them permanently.

For extra credit, make yourself a matching clutch, hairband, or other accessory. Then go spend the $1,580 you saved on a nice vacation. Remember to pack your shoes.
