DIY accessories - Mirror piece wedges

Carin Wester Fall 2009 mirror wedges 2

Gluegun DIY with 7 years of bad luck...? It´s good that I don´t believe in such things. Shoes by Carin Wester, photos via Carolines Mode.

*edit* As Heather suggested in the comments, using CDs would be much better than mirros. They are lightweight, thin, cheap and easy to find. Perfect.

Phasellus facilisis convallis metus, ut imperdiet augue auctor nec. Duis at velit id augue lobortis porta. Sed varius, enim accumsan aliquam tincidunt, tortor urna vulputate quam, eget finibus urna est in augue.


  1. wow. that would be an awesome DIY ...hopefully safe. ;)

  2. For sure these boots were made for catwalks only. At least I could not find any for sale on the Carin Wester website. Looks cool, DIYable but definately something to be worn with caution... :)

  3. Hi Outi!
    You don't have to use real mirrors for this! Many craft stores here in the US (like Jo-Ann Fabrics, for instance) sell mirrored plastic - you can cut it up with scissors but it looks exactly like a real mirror! (Without the thickness, of course.) You can see it in the shard necklace I made here:

    Lovely inspiration for the heels!

  4. How about recycling old CDs for this project? I used broken CD pieces on a bra once. It looked cool.

  5. Heather! Thanks that´s brilliant! CD´s are very available, cheap, trashion AND THIN. Perfect replacement for mirrors :D

  6. So outta control. I love it. And Heather's idea about using CDs instead is great. Especially DVDs which have that iridescent look. I could have put to use all those horrible quality Memorsux (Memorex) DVDs I had to throw away that would never burn. Great post.
