DIY JCrew-Like Sparkles

Sunday, I opened up my JCrew Holiday catalog and saw these really festive flats! Oh, how I want them :)

But, being over $100, they are waaaaaay out of my price range! And what does that mean? DIY time!

I pulled out a $4 pair of thrifted flats that I liked well enough but hadn't worn since Halloween. And here's what I came up with:

I just got some glue and some sequins and went to town! While I loved the effect of just the sequins, they wouldn't stay on with just the glue. Thus the gold sheen on top of the finished pair- I had to get my gold nail polish out and do a coat over the top. And now the shiny-ness is on there for good!

Love them :)

Have a good one, everyone!
