Hot or not?



I remember in the 80's my mom had these clip things for her shoes. I called them jewelry for her pumps, and thought they were fun to play with. I never thought much of them again till I found this website that specializes in them. Absolutelyaudrey.com carries a ton of shoe clips so you can customize your shoes to match different outfits.




So, did these die in the 80's along with banana clips and pegged jeans and should stay there? OR are they cool again and would you wear them? Do tell

AHH! I almost did a post on these too.. I saw them in an old issue of Real Simple a month or so ago and wondered the same thing... I think for a fun night out these could definitely work?!?!

Hmmm, that is a hard one. I definitely think they could be fun with the right outfit.

Why not. If they extend the life of your plain "pumps" (I hate that word), I say they are worth it. Plus, they take up much less room in your closet!

Wow I totally remember those! I probably wouldn't use them but it's sort of a fun way to dress up a pair of regular pumps.

I think they could be fun- but I don't think I could pull them off!

ps- i promise i don't wear banana clips but i really liked the shape of what they did to my hair!! hahaha

I love the top ones, they are chic and they add a mod look to a pump.

I like them. obviously it depends which one and the kind of shoe - but I think they might even be cute on a ballet flat?!

I think they're a fun idea - I saw a DIY version on Martha Stewart's site and made my own here. I have yet to break them out but can't wait (especially the green ones)!
