Over the weekend, my friend Elanah and I got together to recreate some crystal sandals we'd been seeing all over the blogosphere. In particular, there were two pairs of crystal sandals that we reaaaaaallly loved -- Marni, as seen on Julia here, and J.Crew, as seen on Liz here. We both desperately wanted a pair but weren't prepared to invest in the trend. The Marni version retails for $480! So, we ordered some sandals from Nordstrom (I got these), went to Toho Shoji in the garment distract during our lunch break and whipped these up in under ten minutes. Not bad, eh?

The project is insanely simple. Click through the gallery to see how it's done!
