Photo Folie - Cuffed and Belted Bootie


Today is Friday and with it comes another Photo Folie.  If you are new to Joyfolie, Photo Folie is a new shoe design inspired by a photo.  I have only made one pair of the shoes shown, so they are not something we are actively selling--at least not yet.  Most of the shoes currently available on our site started out as a Photo Folie.  So, if we get a lot of feedback that a particular style is well-loved, we will definitely rush it into a firm-soled shoe in size 4-13.  If you would like to shop our in-stock shoes, please click here.

Back to today's shoes, I really love the photo above and the innovative use of old photographs over antique mirrors.  In particular, though, I like the tan, faded straps of ribbon and all the lovely textures.  Today, I took this same concept and applied it to a cuffed bootie.  It is made with a heathered, cappuccino-colored suiting material, over chestnut velour, finished with a cognac strap of leather I had from an old trip to Florence.  The result are some really wearable little kicks that would be so cute for the little lady with leggings and an over-sized sweater tunic.

Happy Friday!

Heidi, I am the wrong person to ask because my husband always told me that my boy designs were too girly--ha! It's one of the reasons we don't do boys things right now :)

LOVE these, Jess! And I love that Robert thinks all of your boy designs are too girly. Every time I have tried to do something for boys Jon says the same thing so I just give up! =)

I have so many more ideas! Even though I love that we finally have enough shoes to meet demand, I do miss when we were handmade and could offer a new style every week :)
