What to do with a $4 pair of peep toes?

I got these black beauties at Goodwill for $4. Love me a cute peep toe!

    I am so happy to have come across your blog!! The shoes and zipper flower are fantastic. Love it!!!
    I just started playing around with making zipper flowers, and they are so fun. I found zipper fabric and made a headband then put a zipper flower on it. Have a great day. Going to follow and look forward to your posts.
    Have a great day,

    Sooooooo cute! I never would have thought to dress up my shoes like that! Now you've got me thinking how to jazz up my flip flops this year – I live in them all summer and let's be honest, some flip flops are really boring!
