new york diary: part 1

i've been looking forward to my trip to new york for far too long.  its by far one of my favorite cities.  the boyf had never been so i was excited to be able to experience it with him.  we stayed with some friends in weehawken.  i know know a little far but hey it was a free place to stay so no complaints there.  we were greeted with a lovely view of the skyline, some brooklyn lager and some proper new york pizza.

this or that: glitter boots


with this diy.

welcome to this or that.  i've been doing this on occasion on my tumblr but thought it'd make a good addition to the blog.  more content = good, right?  while i don't usually scour the interweb for frugal alternatives to designer duds, there are already blogs dedicated to that, but on occasion i'll have an "ah ha!" moment were i know i've seen a cheaper version else where.  

i have been ogling these barney's glitter boots {$595} for some time, but the boyf wallet won't allow it.  i've also been lusting after these sam edelman {$160}.  then i had a grand idea, a mimosa or two helped, i could use this diy to make the boots.  pure genius!  my only concern is that the glitter won't stick to the suede, so i may need to cut a template to secure onto {sew or glue perhaps?} the back half.  if you have any insight onto how you would do this i'd like to here your thoughts. :)
