This one's a gem!

Warning. I am about to hop on my soapbox and wax lyrical about a pair of shoes. A PHENOMENAL pair of shoes. They're by Haus of Price (nope, me neither) on the lovely Solestruck website whose mantra "to rid the world of ugly shoes one pair at a time' always makes me chuckle. As we all know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I believe that I share my eye with a random magpie somewhere. Behold:

Look at all those stones and studs!
Wedge (my new favourite thing apparently), peep toe (an old fave), platform (of course) and H-to the-I-to-the-G-to-the-H!
The shape of the wedge is just perfect and the peep toe is exactly the right size! I hate an oversized peep toe.
The only problem is the $334.95 price tag. Time to get my DIY on I reckon. Pass me the glue gun! Did I ever tell you that I once superglued my finger and thumb together? This is going to be fun...

they are rather fab, but at the same time, they do make me think "i could make that!"
i say that a lot.
i generally can't though!

Those shoes could cause a traffic accident! lol
They are very unique and pretty though.

Well Char, those were my thoughts exactly. And if I want a pair that's how it's going to have to go. I am going to scour ebay for cheap peep toe wedge boots! I'm sure (even with buying the glue gun) I can bring 'em in under $334.95!

hello,
i am in love with these shoes, but they are def overpriced.
i am going to diy them. ALSO, im 99.9% sure the shoe base they use is made by qupid. specifically, style bikini-73 in beige. i've seen them on urbanog.com for 29.90 (wholesale $10). so they are basically bedazzling a cheap pair of wedges... which is why i think the price is ridiculous! so if you want the same wedge they use, get the qupid ones!
