Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine”

There is something enchanting about silver: the way it reflects light, reminiscent of a fairytale. I think it's for that reason that I wanted to keep making silver shoes over and over, and it took me forever to gather this post together. Someone asked me if I am getting tired of Design a Day. The answer is an emphatic no. In fact, as I have only ten left, I feel a bit panicked--there are so many designs I still have in mind, how will I choose?!

Additionally, I had so many beautiful silver images, and I wanted to share quite a few of them, like this necklace, which carries such an inspiring message, not too far off of my own philosophy.

On to today's shoes, I created two pairs, one dressy and one more casual. These shoes are both made from the same fabric, a cracked faux silver leather, that reflects lightin unusual ways. The first pair of shoes are called Luna. They have a t-strap and grey scallop detail at the toe.

They are called Luna. I have one pair in size 6 available here.

I think they would be adorable the outfit on the left with little knee socks, and mom can sport this fun and inexpensive little dress from H&M.

And, because I was so smitten with silver, I did one additional pair of shoes. These are a bit fancier. The have a hand-stitched torn slate rosette with a little button at the center. I wish I did a better job capturing the buttons, which almost have a mercurial-type feel to them.

These shoes are called Farrah. I have on pair available here.

Finally, I will leave you with a fun DIY project, full of silver and shades of texture! Photobucket
