K James Couture Swarovski Embellished Couture Heels

You might have picked up on this from the, I dunno, 40 or 50 shoe blogs i’ve posted but…  I have a slight shoe obsession.  Heels, flats, espadrilles, knee high boots, cowboy boots, ankle boots – they’re all close personal friends of mine.  And just when I think I can’t love another as much as I love TLC Creations, or Studio Jellyfish, or Lauren Luna I seem to find room in my heart for another shoe designer.

Kate Ferguson developed her eye for fashion at the oh so coveted FIDM (That alone makes me want to be her when I grow up.)  She began embellishing shoes as alternative to wearing jewelry and whether she intended to or not, her shoes acted as a walking advertisement.  Using only Swarovski crystal’s, Kate Ferguson turns a pair of ordinary heels into ‘K James Couture’; using multiple sizes and colors Kate squeezes the most sparkle out of each style.  See for yourself:

Kate puts so much love into these shoes, spending 8+ hours… per SHOE.  Uh huh, that’s right, with nothin’ but tweezers, glue and the sticktoitiveness of a friggin’ Buddhist Monk!  I would even stake my reputation on the notion that she might be a closet genius.  Anyone with that kind of concentration should be given a nobel prize.  Kate Ferguson is taking orders so GET SOME!  Call the number below or contact her via facebook (while she works out some kinks on her site.) And do her a favor – leave a comment and tell her how much you love her shoes!  Designers just eat that stuff up!

Also be sure to congratulate Kate on making it into Nolcha Fashion Week 2012
