Shoe Clips

Shirt: Club Monaco, Necklace & Shorts: F21, Heels: Marni, Earrings worn as shoe clips: Vintage Chanel, Clutch: Vintage Judith Leiber, Sunnies: Ray Ban, Watch Vintage Gucci

I'm all about improvising and using items for other than their intended purpose. Take these vintage clip on earrings for example...they are wicked awesome (yes, I just said that) as earrings, but they make the perfect addition to jazz up simple pumps! Dontcha just love it when I get crafty?! ;)

Nicole

That is genius - to use your earrings as shoe clips. I was almost tricked into believing that those are some vintage CC shoes!
