embellished shoes detail

I bought these shoes because I like the shape, love the green leather, and knew they would be perfect for a little embellishment. I have a stash of vintage crystal buttons that lend themselves to the purdy-fication of most anything, so I sewed them on with red thread for a little pop.

These have held up for years, except for the time that dorkwad in the subway came down on my foot really hard, causing me to emit an explitive, and a button to be lost in the chaos of a morning commute.
