This is a great way to recycle and reuse. Shoes that have lost their fashion edge just need a little bit of tweaking to become new again and more of a statement than they ever dreamed of. By adding scraps of velvet, vintage silks, and bits of lace the blah have become "belles chaussures" (beautiful shoes). They can take center stage and not only be a focal point but are also one-of-kind and can not be owned by another. You can find the shoes pictured on my http://www.stacyleighatelier.etsy.com/ site.
