Pink Painted Shoes

Pink Pink

First pink shoes are these gorgeous 1960's pointed toed beaded and sequin high heel shoes I got at an estate sale once where the lady had all glamorous clothes from the late 1950's and early 1960's which I have always liked and coveted.
These had a dress to match with same beads and I didn't pick it up because it was so small however I knew  I was not going to ever wear them I just hang them in my studio Oh well one of those things you left behind you wish you had gotten at an estate sale

All leather and gorgeous

Reminds me of Doris Day  Hollowood days back when in the old movies they always dressed so matchy matchy which I still love. I bet she had silky pink evening gloves to match also

Another remembrance of the studio playing days. I did a post once on a pair of vintage high heels I picked up at a yard sale once they had the old 1960's era look pointed toes and kitten heels however  not a bright enough  pretty color. I was painting furniture and chairs in the studio so thought why not these shoes. I just love the bubble gum pink paint I had.

After pink paint and fancy shoe clips

 This is the before picture of course before my talent of painting shoes. I made them new insoles from an old calendar page

      Isn't these shoe clips just fabulous ? I have loved rhinestones since I was a teenager. I have a collection of vintage shoe clips also and not ready to part them just yet . Well maybe for a big price $$$ LOL              


You have to agree they are prettier now

  1. Very creative, I love the new look!

  2. I love both pair of shoes! The first have such delicate bling! And the second, well, you certainly made them look a lot better! I love rhinestones and shoe clips, also. I pick them up when I see them at flea markets, etc. to use in my jewelry making.

  15. Painting those shoes makes a wonderful display and like how you lined them. Very creative. I don't know how we were able to wear those crazy pointed-toe shoes. Glad I don't have to anymore.
