sonia rykiel - another version.






as soon as i saw these sonia rykiel creepers i started looking for for just the perfect topping.
i was having a hard time finding a variation of sizes and i went almost EVERYYWHERE in philadelphia.
i settled with these medium sized circular ones, 75 to be exact.
i did a waterfall effect from the tongue down to the top of the toes just in case i started to run out.

although a huge difference from the runway to my bedroom, SRs have a wider top, flat leather with strap and black on black / the T.U.Ks curve with a smaller index and black on white. i made them work , and now they look like little black bugs. 
they show off a lot better in night light.
i might do my black ones with a different style on top. 


and in case your wondering where i purchased these shoes , 
none other then free people.
 yes i said that right. never in a million years did i think free people would be carrying creepers. 
i think my shoe closet is complete, creepers in every color, both naked and decorated.

Those look awesome. I need some coffins, myself.
My aunt was actually married by a "priest" (or something to that effect) who was wearing creepers. I should post pics someday.
