Photo Folie - Rust, Scrolls, and Red

Photobucket
photo by Jose Villa

Happy Photo (errr) Friday. If you are new to the Joyfolie blog, every Friday I blog a photo I find beautiful and design a pair of shoes inspired by it. With the holiday, busyness, and such, I haven't posted a Photo Friday in awhile. Also, Friday tends to be a busy day, and it's been challenging to keep up with the posts. I've considered moving them to Monday or Tuesday, but have yet to come up with a catchy label for that transition. So, for now, just know that Photo Friday could show up any time!

Today's image is by Jose Villa. I really love his photography. He shoots in film, and all his images have a beautiful, light, ethereal quality to them. I always feel inspired when I visit his blog. What drew me to this particular photo is that I happened to have fabric with the exact same color and pattern as the scrolls in the chair. Paired with red like the bougainvillea in the photo, I thought it would make the perfect pair of peep toe booties. And thus.... the Isabel shoes.

Because Jose's image was shot in Mexico, I gave them a Spanish name. There are only a few pairs, found here. I hand tea dyed the fabric. They have cuff detail like the Colette shoe, that can be worn up or down.

Just for fun, I threw in a photo of my little sassy miss. Cute, but a little contrary these days, for certain. Special thanks to Jose Villa for the beautiful inspiration! In fact, I found him so inspiring, that I have a second Photo Friday also based on his photography. Don't forget, too, that you have just a few hours left to enter the Sophie Wrap Giveaway! Happy New Year!
