Perfect for fashionistas or fans of Sex and the City, this size 8 gold stiletto has been reimagined as a pretty planter. The Berkeley-based designer removed the top of the old shoe, drilled some holes for drainage and then planted it with a blue-green succulent in organic fertilizer. "The shoe's gold glamor, originally intended to shine at night on a dance floor, now gives off a warm gold glow in the sunshine," explains the creator. Just be sure the plant gets bright light and a little water. $70 at
