I'd seen them at TJ Maxx as well and then remembered that Marshall's and TJ's have the same parent company. They were so cute and so inexpensive I decided to buy them just to hack around in. A couple of years ago I remember that Kate Spade was selling adorable flats with rhinestone buckles on them that I loved but didn't buy because they were pricey and while I always wear sparkly heels to black tie events and cocktail parties, I figured I wouldn't get much use out of rhinestone flats. These two pairs together were still just a fraction of the cost of one of those Kate Spade pairs, so I'm glad I had some shoe willpower for once.
The black ones, which I'm pretty sure are faux patent, actually look waterproof, which is an added bonus, because I'm always lamenting that I don't have any cute shoes to wear in the rain. The colorful ones are fabric. I love the rhinestones--very glam! There was also a similar style in ivory with a slightly different rhinestone embellishment, but sadly not in my size or a close size that I could make fit. (Another TJ's may have them yet!) The backs of these are stretchy so the sizing is a bit fluid.
As I was playing with them at home I created a mesmerizing shoe mandala.
At least it was mesmerizing to me because shoes and things that sparkle always capture my attention. When the shoes fall apart I can take off the rhinestones and use them in some crafty way, like for a hair clip.
