A New Signature Sparkle [Hotter Shoes]

If you’ve been following this blog or my Instagram account for a long time then no doubt you’ll remember my signature red sparkly shoes. I had them in both sexy-skyscraper heeled and much-more-forgiving ballet flat forms, both pairs painstakingly and lovingly decorated with thousands of scarlet flat-backed crystals, each hand placed by myself over the course of many evenings. I wore them with almost every outfit, declaring happily that red goes with almost everything, I swear, but they make few appearances these days.

The reason is not that I have forsaken my love of a red accessory, but merely that crystal covered shoes are prone to losing crystals over time, leaving them looking a bit sad. It’s possible to replace the bare areas with fresh crystals, a patch-up job I undertook many a time, but eventually I just needed to make myself a fresh pair of the flats entirely and I lacked the time and motivation necessary to devote the several hours needed to that endeavor. What I needed, really, was a sparkly red shoe that could replace my signature crystal flats without losing any of the fun twinkle, while gaining a better sense of longevity. Hotter Shoes is here to answer that call.
