We're taking our engagement pictures this week (yay!), and I've been longing for some super cute, colorful heels. Of course, it's fall now, and all the stores have is black, brown, and some dark red. I want turquoise, or yellow, or pink! I think it's so fun for engagement shoots to have darling, sort of vintage-inspired, colorful shoes, especially for my personality! I know the shoot isn't about fashion, but it sure helps, and I really think the cute shoes add spunky attitude to some of the shoots I've seen... here's one from Ruffled:
Recently, I gave up on buying the perfect shoe and thought I'd try spray-painting some shoes with a cute style. I've spray-painted shoes before (here) but then put glitter and Mod Podge on them, so this is a relatively new concept for me. The shoes I found to try this out on aren't great, but it was worth a try... I got this pair of peep toe heels at Goodwill on sale for $2.50. They're the Payless brand so I don't feel bad doing things to them.
Anyway, I took a couple cans of spray paint to them, over a coat of spray primer, to make them a fun color! Here's the before...
They may crack with lots of wear, but for photos they should be just fine! I'll keep you posted on how the pics go. =)
