painting pumps seems to be all the rage over here...i feel like everyone is wearing stuff from thrift stores...doesn't anyone buy anything new anymore?...

you might want to try this...poke a hole on either side of the seam at the heel of the shoe and then thread a ribbon through and tie a bow...it looks pretty cute...

also...spray paiint works really well on shoes or any leather...maybe you can stencil them somehow...i'm thinking of doing that myself...

a daring technique, softgrey

Meltonian might be good, or something like that.
daring?!?! ...you're talking to a girl who cut a pair of boots in half and threw them in the dryer...

what is meltonian please?... [/b][/quote]
putting it on while wet reminded me of "Quadrophenia",
where they went with their pants wet in order to mold to their legs (maybe).

even if leather has dried up, we might get a little of the mod effect by Meltonian (leather care cream for sofa, bags, etc.)

Because all of the commercial epaulettes are a rip-off I'm making my own epaulettes

I'm making a pair of leaves out of papier-mache ( ), the leaves will curl up slightly at the end, then I'll paint them with gold-leaf, put some kind of fixative on top, attach tassels hanging down from the edge of the leaf and then attach them to my prussian blue suit (which is still under construction)...

Not exactly a really tedious customization, but I love it all the same. Sorry if I have posted this already.

Love the anti MacDs t-shirt!

The whole look is based on Tancredi Prince of Falconeri (in my avatar) from Giuseppe Lampedusa's Il Gattopardo and Visconti's film of the same title - the book notes him for his slim elegance and the film is visually lavish (the Sicily scenes from the Godfather II are directly copied from it). The whole look is inspired by the baroque opulence and also masculine elegance.

I need a pair of patent pumps with woven bows at the front (Bottega Veneta) to complete the look, as something else knows...

I'm dying over here. What you just described sounds wonderful. Your avatar is divine... reminiscent of an old-world style that I just have to love.

I'm making my own bedspread since i can't afford to buy one
I am crocheting blocks and then I want to attach them with blocks of contracting fabric. Maybe do some beading on it in the end. Kind of Arabian Nights on Acid feel
