As you may or may not know, I make customized clutches on Etsy. I started making clutches when I was planning my own wedding a little over three years ago.  I wanted to give my bridesmaids jewelry that they could wear on the day of my wedding and wanted to give them that jewelry inside a little clutch they could use on my wedding day and also post wedding. I wasn’t satisfied with any of the clutches I was finding in stores, so I decided I was going to make my own. I went out and bought a sewing machine and taught myself how to make a clutch. After my wedding, I threw a couple of my bags up on Etsy and opened up shop. Ever since then, I have been specializing in bridesmaid clutch sets and personalized wedding gifts for brides and everyone in their wedding parties.

Recently, I was sent one of the best shoe ideas I have seen in a long time, High Heelers by Solemates. High Heelers are little plastic pieces that easily attach over most stilettos and kitten heels to prevent sinking into grass or falling into cracks (think cobblestones and street grates). They work by increasing the surface area of the heel, reducing the pressure on that area and keep you from sinking in.  I got married outside in front of a lake and wish that I had known about these when I was getting married. High Heelers would have been the perfect addition to my bridesmaid gift packs and would have been great to wear myself while walking around the landscaped grounds for pictures.

Solemates  also makes these adorable S.O.S Wedding Rescue Kits that include the following in each kit: One pair of Solemates High Heelers, Advil, Antacid, Blistex, Bobby Pins, Safety Pins, Bandage, Ear Plugs, Elastic Hair Band, Nail File, Comb, Tissues, Sewing Kit, Shout Wipe, Tampax Tampon, Breath Mints and Floss!   

 How cute would this have been packed into one of my bridesmaid clutches?! Along with these products, Solemates also makes Shoe care products which are part of their Cobbler’s Couture Collection and includes products like: leather protector, shoe freshener, shoe polish and blister blockers. 

 Spring is now in full swing, and there will be plenty of weddings and other outdoor events coming up. If you need some shoe protection, I highly suggest you swing over to Solemates and check out some of their unique and helpful products!
