When I caught the DIY bug, one of the first things I made was a pair of studded boots. It was around the time that Zara released this pair that I decided I MUST own bedazzled boots. For some reason, I had it in my head that the Zara boots were in fact Alexander Wang, and that I would never be able to afford them, and so I made these. I loved them, my friends loved them, and we still wear them years later (love a good DIY that stands the test of time!). Back when studded boots were the shoe to be seen in, I saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocking this Alaïa pair, and knew I wanted in.
