What a "GRATE" Pair of Shoes!

I messed up my friend Tricia's perfect new nude pumps for this photo shoot. I've been looking for nude pumps for a couple of months now, but I wasn't in love with any that I found. And then Tricia texted me a photo of these pumps, and I was in love and insanely jealous.



So I asked if I could wear them for this photo shoot, and she kindly agreed. They fit like a dream. Beautiful color. Perfect height. Platform and precious heel. Love them! So I didn't tear them up on purpose.



We thought photos on a grate would be cool. Too bad it "grated" up the shoes. I  offered to buy them from her, not my ulterior motive (I swear). But she sweetly said it was okay.If you have any suggestions for fixing the heels where they got scrapped up, please let me know!







In the meantime, vote for me. I promise I'll buy Tricia any pair of shoes she wants if I am a finalist!

Oopsie... they ARE cute though! Funny, I just bought a pair yesterday that I found at a consignment store. Perfect fit, so comfy and dream price. :) Going to vote now!

Love the way you styled around these heels! Very cute.

Wait, how bad were they grated? Like, Parmesan cheese bad or just a little bit of scuff marks? I hope it's not too bad!

Yikes! Sorry about the shoes. They do look great. Hopefully someone knows how to fix them :(

Those are great shoes. I love the thicker heel. I just bought some nude pumps (Steve Madden I think?), but the heel on them is so skinny I really risk toppling over.
I'm going over to vote for you now!

Very cute shoes! I have learned from when I lived in NYC that heels and grates do NOT mix...not only do they scuff but the heel gets stuck. I'd go to a shoe store and see if they have any products that will buff scuff marks out.

Ooops! They are pretty though! Maybe some shoe dye the same color, or acrylic paint...if they are not too "grated!"

Where r the shoes from? I am so in need of these myself too.

Cover the heel in a gold or champagne colered glitter (like glitter soles, but glitter heels!)...I saw it on Pinterest!

Great shoes -- they go perfectly with your outfit. :) What a bummer that they got chewed up by the grate -- hope you find a way to fix them.

Tricia swears it's not so bad, but glitter heels would be beautiful :)

They are Pierre Dumas brand? She bought them in a local boutique down here, so I'm not sure what stores carry the brand!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

That's exactly what happened! They got stuck in the grates and the heels got all ripped up! Thanks for the tip!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I know right! I love the heels! Makes them so much more comfortable to wear all day! Thanks for voting :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Me too!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

The heels are grated like Parmesan :) No scuff marks, just deep scratches. Sad day! And I totally wore this outfit so I could borrow those amazing shoes!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I hate that I was only borrowing them!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

These were perfect! So sad I was borrowing them. The platform on them was so comfy!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

What size? I'll totally do it!
