Genius

How cool are these?! It's the recession version of new shoes.


According to jewelry designer Erica Weiner, 'Shoe clips were first manufactured in the ornament-obsessed Victorian era, when instead of buying multiple pairs of shoes, women dressed up their plain footwear with an endless variety of detachable bows, buckles, and jewels. Flappers played croquet in rhinestone pairs, fast-talking female reporters clipped them onto their oxfords and Audrey Hepburn used all kinds to embellish her black ballet flats.'

Flappers? Audrey Hepburn? LOVE IT! And since the shoe clips at Erica Weiner Jewelry were manufactured anywhere from the 40's-60's, they're the perfect means of adding a little vintage charm to your wardrobe!
