My stud affair - Episode 3 [Pointed ballerina flats]

I remember a time, not so long ago, when I wouldn't even think of picking a pointed toe over a rounded toe - they always seemed too witchy or serious for me - but now pointed shoes are seeing a real comeback and I can't get enough of them! 
I'm particularly in love with Valentino's studded heels and flats but, sadly, they are a little out of my price range right now. So, in a nod to that style, I decided to add some studs to my silver flats from a little shop in Satwa (I almost wish the toe on these was more pointed, to add extra drama, but I still love them). 
This was such a simple DIY but I really think its taken these flats from being nice to being edgy and amazing. Say hello to my new favourite footwear!

[Just FYI, you should all totally check out this incredible DIY tutorial, by Jenni from I Spy DIY, on how to create your own Valentino lookalikes]


1. Apply E600 glue to a cotton wool bud (remove the cotton from the end first)
2. Transfer the glue to a stud
3. Place the stud onto your shoes and press down hard
4. Repeat with the rest of the studs until your design is complete
5. Leave the glue to dry for 15mins at least (I would leave it overnight before wearing)
