So ever since I first discovered the Jeffrey Campbell "Tick" wedges and saw all the D.I.Y.'s encompassing the blogosphere, I have wanted studded wedges of my own. I have been searching for the perfect pair of inexpensive wedges to act as the canvas for the D.I.Y.. The one post that really made me want to do it was this one from Walk the Sand. I found these Limelight wedges at Rack Room Shoes.
I wore them today, and I love them bunches. The woven leather is my favorite part. They also have lots of height, but are still easy to walk in. I found located the right flat-backed silver thumbtacks at Home Depot today, but someone had bought the last bulk package the day before. But the thing is that now, I don't know if I want to stud them. My mom suggested that I wear the bare cork throughout the summer and them stud them at the beginning of the Fall, when the cork goes out of season. I'm thinking that would look great with scrunchy socks in the Fall and Winter.
Here is a picture of the D.I.Y. from Walk the Sand. This is what I want them to look like.
The originals Jeffrey Campbells...
What do you guys think??? To stud... or not to stud???
