For this project you will need:
- A pair of stripper platform shoes
- Sequins and plastic gems
- A strong glue like E6000
- 3 days of your life or no life at all (I identify with the latter)
Some sweet size 6 foot stripper donated these shoes to the thrift store where I picked them up for a $1.60. Ok, they could have not belonged to a stripper but I'd like to think these shoes lived a little and dabbled in some use, misuse, or abuse of yeyo, angel dust, black beauties, X, or some of the like. I could be totally wrong. I was inspired to decorate shoes once glitter pumps went mainstream and I couldn't afford them so I planned on glittering a pair of shoes anyways, but I was further inspired to go the sequin route by Charliet Clothier and a bag of sequins that had been sitting in my sock drawer for at least 360 days. Check her out. Love her style http://charlietclothier.blogspot.com/2011/05/glitzy-heels.html
After 3 days of manual labor and multiple attempts at styling them, I decided on my dad's levi cut offs with a thrifted granny blouse and some hot pink over the knees. I know I know, snooze fest. But for my backyard shoot, it sufficed. The concept of the shoot goes to my mother, Rosemary. Yes, that makes me Rosemary's baby. Be warned. Even though she couldn't get out the phrase "hopscotch shot." Twisted her little tongue in too many ways. Photos were taken by my baby daddy who borrowed the sidewalk chalk from his work, "Um, can you pick out the color you want cause I have to get this box back to work." After this we went and ran some laps and stairs and my makeup stayed. The magic of MAC. Then we shot hoops, drank smoothies, ate sushi, and that leaves me here. blah blah blah.
Oh no, I spy a bald spot.
Maybe if I break my ankle, then people will love me.

Every day I'm hopscotchin, I mean shuffling, I mean hustlin.
