Options for putting on the ritz:
1. Book expensive hotel room; trash with glitter.
3. Adorn plain shoes with Jacob Lily clips, a new line of bejeweled accessories for your accessories.
Hint: Pick No. 3. Inspired by her own collection of flea market baubles, designer Vivian Wu creates clips that attach securely to footwear, purses, and essentially anything else without puncturing fabric or causing damage.
Add extra twee to Mary Janes with beaded and pearled bow ties or give plain ballet flats a round of metallic roses. We’d go big with pavé rhinestone leaf clusters on the lip and side of pumps, but you can sensibly sparkle with all manner of flowers, starbursts, ribbons, and even lion heads.
Wu donates $1 from each purchase to Women for Women International, an organization that provides women living in conflict zones the tools and resources to rebuild their lives.
Things are looking bright.
Available at jacob-lily.com, $30-$115.
