About a year ago, CL fanatics was introduced to Samira Strass. A Ron Ron covered from head to heel in Swarovski crystals. We swooned, drooled, and envied those lucky few who had the ability to cough up $3000 for ownership rights. A year later, strass has completely infiltrated the Louboutin world. From the many styles being strassed to the wide variety of colors now being used, if you have the money, you can get all the CL strass you want. What remains unchanged is the majority of the population, like myself, who still can't wrap their mind or bank account around the idea of dropping $3000 on a pair of shoes. Does this mean we are forever doomed to a strass-less CL collection? I think not! Recently a DIY phenomenon has taken over the CL forum on tPF and this weekend, I officially jumped on the DIY CL strass wagon :) A snapshot of my workspace:
I promise to blog about this project in its entirety as soon as I finish but for now back to strassing and preparing myself for the remarks and looks I will get at work tomorrow when I respond to the usual post-weekend small talk:
Coworker: "What did you do this weekend?"
Me: "Glued thousands of Swarovski crystals to a pair of my shoes, you?"
Coworker: "Wait, what?"
$100 bucks says this conversation will actually take place tomorrow...LOL
**UPDATE: 02/23/2010 - Okay, this project is taking a lot longer than expected...mainly cus I'm getting lazy :P Maybe another week or two before they're done...sowwee :)
