Daytime Glitter!
I used to have an obsession with converse, so these ones were looking quite average, and as they were brown it was a bit of a difficult colour to pair anything with... So after doing my Glitter wedges I decided why not fix up these babies!!
I originally wanted to cover the entire shoe with fine glitter but after a few coats of paint I decided I liked the look of the shoe and always thought I could add the other glitter later!
