Googly Eye Shoes

August 29th, 2011 by Cobwebs

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.

    Shogoth Shoes!!! Shogoth Shoes!!! OMG!!! Have I got a hat to go with these or what!!! Who’s making the purse?!? (I’m just a little bit excited about this.) Thank you Jenna for putting a little Haute Couture into my Monday Morning. ($1,595? Hmmm, maybe $40 isn’t too high for the Shoggoth Chapeau? Hmmmm)

    seriously, nearly 1600 bucks for a pair of slingbacks with craft-store googly eyes on them?

    Hell, for that much, i’ll cover every pet you own in googly eyes!

    Oh, my Elder Gods, do I want these. And not just because they’re awesome but because I want to wear them in circles where people routinely wear Louboutin shoes (I should be more specific—I want to be the one wearing thrift store pumps covered in googly eyes while everyone else is snootily sporting their expenso-shoes).

    Are there diamonds in those googly eyes? If one falls off, do they replace the shoe and your kitchen? Why on earth would they charge that? I want to see who buys them and wears them to a meeting at the office. Or anywhere besides a Halloween shindig, really.
