A Southern Belle Customizes High Heel Shoes With A Sudden Twist

Boredum is not for true artistic and creative people who are known for accidents waiting to happen. In fashion, when a garment or shoe is constructed to the best extent from an accident, the wait is over and worthwhile. Last year, Domonique Wells, a southern belle from our beloved state capital, Washington D.C., was bored with her indigo-colored shoes (later named “Tiffany”) and decided to jazz it up by adding sequins, crystals, and glittered fabric embellishments. She added a picture of “Tiffany” to her Facebook profile and was bombarded with requests by female shoe lovers to high heels and stilettos customized which would spark the current “Mean Shoe Game” movement. Jezabelles by Domonique Wells was born in full effect.

I heard of Domonique through my Facebook (FB) friend, Emore’J Couture, who interviewed her at the fashion shoot for Jezabelles. Afterwards, I saw pictures of her creations on her FB profile and were impressed. Raised in Glenarden, MD, Domonique, 20 years old, knew she was an artist at the age of 10 when she drew fashion sketches of extravagant gowns. Later on in her years, she founded her passion through these blue shoes (pictured above) that she adored and thought “what if I made some changes to them, then maybe I’d wear them”.  Thank the Earth’s creator for thinking caps because these style of  shoes are now having Belles put a bass in their walk.

Normal women who claim to have “shoe addictions” tend to move forward with ones that has a mainstream buzz such as couture designers Louboutins and Manolos. Jezabelles are for REAL fashionistas who are different from the “usual” fashion society. Myss Corporate America will wonder how can she wear these customize shoes….but with these tough economic times (rolls eyes)…Corporate America does not exist. Jezabelles are a sin and made for talking.

The official website for Jezabelles is  scheduled to be Spring/Summer 2010. If you want your plain old shoes to make you the Belle of the Ball, Domonique is the one you must call.
