At the beginning of each season I almost always get a new pair of black flats. I just believe they should be essential in a woman's shoe collection. I wear them out so much, that usually after 3 or 4 months I badly need new ones. So this time I just decided to get a plain black pair that didn't cost as much, and add my own touch to them. I thought about adding a frilly flower, a bow, or mix of some stones. But I decided to go with buttons and I sawed off the back and glued them on there. They're still pretty simple but now they have a little something to spice it up.
