I love these shoes mainly because they are just as gorgeous as the DSQUARED2 glitter heels, but the multicolored glitter coating reminds me of the glitter glue I used to use for arts and crafts in elementary school. These pair of heels is also right on trend with the sequin and glitter craze happening in the fashion industry.
