Original Purpose: The finishing touch when you played dress-up in Grandma’s closet.
Aha! Use: Channel Grandma’s style and update plain white wedding shoes with a funky pair of clip-on earrings. Attach them to the shoes at the center (or slightly off center), and let your fancy footwork peek out from under your gown.
Reward: Bejeweled shoes that can change with your mood.
