Lolifying shoes and boots

So it's that time of year, things are getting cold, and I'm balking at the 75-100 dollar price tag of most lolita boots. I'm on the hunt for some cute, inexpensive boots. Ever the thrift-lita, I'm hunting around the local Goodwill, Salvation Army, and St. Vincent's for boots. 7.99 for a pair of leather, lace-up, heeled-platform, knee-high boots? Oh yes please. However, I know that most of them will need some doctoring long before they could be considered lolita.

What have you done to alter your shoes and boots? Got any tips or tricks? I'm somewhat aware of just slapping a bow on with some shoe clips, but there's sure to be some other way.
