diy studded wedge sandals for... $20!

okay so the figment of my imagination has become a reality. i present to you my diy thumbtacked wedge sandals, courtesy of payless fioni jasmine hooded sandals (here, $15 on sale last week), 2 packs of amazon gold thumbtacks (here, $5), and some blistered fingers and hideously chipped nails in the wee hours of the morning, 3am-5am(not pictured, priceless). good insomniactic activity, pushing and removing thumbtacks from the wedge... thankfully the wedge was soft enough to penetrate! finally figured out the design of the thumbtacks after endless holing. anyway i quite like them :) they're soooo comfy too can i say ?? i can actually run in these. the heel height's only 4 inches maybe that's why...



okay im so proud of these. hehe yeah no modesty at all ... thinking of naming them. suggestions?? the hobo wedges. the hobo wedge sandal. THE hobo shoe. ultimate hobo shoe. hobo shoe extreme. hobo. hehe. okay. (why am i obsessed with the word. i need to stop)
