Pearl of Wisdom

Well, today marks day one of Paris Fashion Week! What better way to kick things off than with a project inspired by one of France's most famed designers, Jean Paul Gaultier. Though his Fall 2008 RTW collection had some weird animalistic undertones (c'mon, girls were wearing pelts on their heads), his delicate pearl-trimmed velour heels are the perfect thing to wear to a holiday cocktail party.


What You'll Need:
One pair heels

2 long strands faux pearls

fabric glue

Glue one end of a pearl strand on the back, center edge of the shoe. If the pearls are different sizes, make sure the largest pearls are in the front center (where you slide your toes in).

Continue gluing the strand around the shoe until the entire edge is trimmed. Depending on the shape of your shoe, you could play around with an ankle or T-strap too!
