Dressed {to the Heels} for Carnevale

A simple pair of black suede pumps just won't do...


for a party like this...

...so it's time to get to work and fuss them up a bit.


With Chanel logo organza ribbons, strands of creamy white pearls, a pair of Betsy Johnson red rose and rhinestone earrings...


and a few other embellishments...


I had my way with these Sasha of London pumps.



I ruffled up the Chanel organza ribbon around the shoes, then added white pearl strands...




But of course that was just not enough for the Carnevale celebrations...


and dancing all night long in Venice.


So with some gold and sparkly red rhinestones here and there...




flouncy bows at the heel, a touch of shimmer...



and a demure red satin bow at the toe...



my feet were in for a real treat!


These were the party shoes of the season and

 the prettiest shoes in Venice!


And when it was all over, I kicked off my heels...



...and put away these "not so simple black suede pumps" until next year...maybe.

Happy Carnevale!
