Being the pack rat that I am, every other week, I find myself being the collector of something! Be it frog broaches, pieces of blue vintage cloth, rare coins, or dragonfly patches, I love to be a "collector" from time to time. This week my obsession for "collecting" is shoe clips. Shoe clips are great for those who like to transform their shoes without transforming their pocket:). I found these great vintage yellow wedges at an estate sale last week and decided to give them a little boost by adding a cool accessory to the front. I tried two options to see what would look best. Let me know which one you liked best.
You can find shoe clips on eBay or any antique or vintage store. They were really big in the 60's. They range in price from $2 a pair to $25 (roughly. and also depending on where you live). If you can't find shoe clips, clip on earrings can also do the job. Try shoe clips on ballet flats, heels, wedges, and even thong sandals.
