I've mentioned that I am going to be the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland for Halloween this year. I found a pair of heels online that were super cute for the costume, but they were one-of-a-kind and, needless to say, not within my means to purchase. Anyway, I went secondhand shopping and found these shoes at the Salvation Army. I'm not sure who would ever wear these for real, maybe a square dancer, but I saw potential in them. I bought them for 99¢ and them painted black stripes on the white portion and gold swirls on the red. I am so happy with how they turned out. I think the flats are a better idea than heels anyway because a couple of the parties we go to are outside and heels would be a pain.
