The Look for Less but More

I've been eye-ing this lace peep toe heels for quite some time, but I think I'll have to accept the fact that they'll never make it to Indonesia.

So, an alternative was to find a reliable shoemaker in town, who can make the exact version of this shoe, only cheaper (and perhaps, lower quality...duh)...and I found one!! I won't mention the name or location where to find the person though for now, at least not until I see the result...:p

Since the shoe is gonna be made from scratch, I can then do a lot of changes according to my personal desire. I decided to change the material into satin (in hopes of a sexier feel and look hehehhe), and in this color:


Can't wait to see how it turns out!! :D

I like your version, and also can't wait to see how it turns out! I was thinking of finding a shoemaker to make me boots like Vivienne Westwood pirate ones, since there's no chance I'll be able to buy the original, I'm lame I know :)

oh no, you're not...if you feel lame, then what about me?? Hahaha....

Oh, I didn't mean anything bad, you made alterations to the shoes, and gave them your touch, while I want a complete knock-off, and I know some people who don't approve of that, but when you can't get the real thing and want it badly, what are you to do... :)

Wow, your version is an impeccably amazing upgrade, cannot wait until you can wear out the result!

wow, i keep forgetting that where you live you can actually find a shoemaker that does shoes for you as you wish. i think that is such a great idea, and your version looks really pretty, can't wait to see how they will turn out. if i paid a shoemaker here to do it, it would cost more than a flight to topshop and back :(

How great is to have a shoemaker who can done this?! And even cheaper than original!!! Custom made work here is at least 3 times of the original price!!!
Can't wait to see the finished piece!
