Broke-Ass Tag: heels with bows


Shoes are a personal weakness of mine. Finding the perfect pair of glittery heels for my own wedding was one of my favorite online searches  – ever. This week, I was once again searching for glittery dancing shoes.

I am in love with the Kate Spade Krysta multi-colored shoes. The $328 dollars is definitely not in my price range so I was hoping you could help me find something similar for less than that. I do love the bow, actually it’s basically my favorite part!

As you can see, the most similar pair are undoubtedly the  J. Renee Rosina slingbacks. They’re a little pricier than the rest of the lot at almost $80, but look the closest in spirit to the Kate Spades you’re lusting for. In my self-imposed price range, I had trouble finding both the bow and the right glitter color combination. However, there are a number of options that are definitely inspired by your favorite shoes. Any BABs out there have tips about adding glitter to a pair of heels? Or maybe a bow could be added to shoes that already have the perfect glitter? All crafting tips welcome ladies. Please share.
