If you have clip on earrings, they are great to dress up plain toed shoes. Just clip them on where you slip your foot into the shoe. You now have a pair of glamorous shoes that would ordinarily be plain. You can get clip on earrings at a lot of garage sales.

You can customize any baby doll style shoes for your little ones. Just use a glue stick to stick the flowers and the beads on the shoe. The beads are optional if you want another design for your shoe.
