My best girl, former 2 year roommate and all around wunderkind Ginny Branch Stelling's recent blog post entitled Twinkle Toes proved most inspiring.
"tis the season to pull out (or invest in) your glittery-iest, shiniest most drag queen fabulous shoes. i have a few in my arsenal already, but am always looking to expand my collection. sequins and glitter are kind of like black licorice, you either love it or hate it. i'm so on team sparkly. besides even if you wear sensible shoes 24/7, this is the most legit time to embrace a little bit of chintz."
And since sparkly man-shoes are a rare commodity I decided to go ahead and make my own. I went out and found a pair of Florsheim oxfords, bought some glitter in black and gold, pulled out my Modge Podge from the craft drawer and got to work.
I'm in love with the outcome, Thanks Ginny!
P.S. I love and miss you very much. I think of you everyday, I've saved all your notes and keep them right next to my bedroom door in a frame with my favorite picture of you. It makes me happy. Creepy?
