Lights On, Lights Off...Chanel Lightbulb Shoes!




These Chanel lightbulb shoes are a Beckerman favourite! So, here's the question of the day... What do you do if your Chanel light bulb burns out and refuses to turn on? First, you can freak out a little! And then... you call in an amazing electrician!!!! We were so stumped when one of our Chanel shoes wouldn't turn on. We thought that they would be easy to fix, but when we couldn't figure it out, our electrician Vladmir took them home with him to study them. He worked on them for 8 hours straight! He also had to drive two hours out of Toronto to go to this specific lightbulb store to find the correct bulb because Chanel used a hard to find light bulb. Vladmir had to completely re-wire them and he miraculously did it!! He's our HERO!!! They are back and they are shining brighter then ever!! Pin It Now!
