SHOE ENVY: Tabitha Simmons Farah Bootie

What about this for an arts and crafts project: grab an exotic, peep-toe bootie, get your paints and paint brush and go to town. Tabitha Simmons is aware of snakeskin’s innate beauty and the wonders a little red and turquoise paint can do when used properly. The result: a beautiful thing called Farah with an exotic figure and 120mm heel. Is there a more perfect shoe for jeans and cocktail dresses alike?
