Frankenshoes: Marc Jacobs raffia heel sandals

Well, it looks like it was craft time in the Marc Jacobs household, no?

Here’s an easy fashion DIY for you all:

1. Take a pair of boring old sandals

2. Add the leftover tinsel from the Christmas tree to the heel. Failing that, shred some tinfoil and use that instead.

3. Add some more to the toe.

4. Charge people $840 to buy the results.

5. Sit back and laugh as the money rolls in.

Or, alternatively, just click here and buy them. It’ll help encourage Marc Jacobs to make more of the same…

    what’s great is that 1) nobody has to see how chipped the bottoms of your heels get & 2) you get a little teepee shelter for the indian in the cupboard!

    They remind me of the brooms in Fantasia. They’d be lovely with a less flamboyant heel!

    the shoe is actually nice and wearable, without the tinsel on the heel and in front.
