While I was away on vacay, I did a lot of shopping. One of the things I purchased was these Jimmy Choo 123 Blast Suede and Patent Sandals.
These totally caught my eye because they remind me of the CL Balotas I strassed for Emily which, FYI, is still one of my favorite strass projects to date! Because I absolutely loved how Emily’s Balota’s came out, I’ve been looking for the perfect cage sandal to strass for myself.
For these Jimmy Choo’s, I did a couple things. One, I only strassed the suede portions in Jet Hematite Swarovski rhinestones. Two, I glittered the area I was strassing first, so that the they’d be extra sparkly. And three, I strassed the cages in 3 rows of 7ss Swarovski rhinestones instead of one big stone in the center of each strap like JChoo, Rossi, Zanotti and Louboutin. The style I went for was more along the lines of Rene Caovilla and Casadei. I absolutely love the outcome.
