I just wanted to showcase these babies. Haute couture they are not, but I prefer the creative to the exclusive. Check out the link to CourtneysCastle on Etsy. The artist, Courtney Kessel studied sculpture and sewing and combined the two with her other passion, art, to create a series of, well, wearable art. All of her creations are made from recycled goods and are new and decidedly unboring ways to look at the usual. I also love that while making shoes out of cardboard and electrical tape, she paid such careful attention to the shape of the straps-- these are eco-chic, I daresay!
