I know they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but for me it is the shoes that I can not live without! Having a shoe fetish can be difficult when you are looking for something new and different. Surfing the web for hours for that one unique pair may not always be possible. So instead of stressing yourself out trying to find something that no one else has just create them yourself! I imagine that most of you are not able to make shoes from scratch and that is why you are going to embellish them instead. They can be a pair you already have or a pair you buy at the store.
I recently had a fashion show to attend. This show was a black and white affair where people are required to dress to impress. Of course time was of the essence and I had to think quick. I searched the web for hours and only came across heels that were too high or shipping that would take too long. I decided to check out some local stores for something in black or white that I could embellish. I finally made it to Catos. This is a women’s retail shop that I like to frequent for their cheap shoes and accessories. I found this cute pair of black and white heels that needed something more. Here is a simple DIY project of how I blinged them out for the fashion show:
1. I baught the shoes for $15.00 like this….
2. Next I went to Joanne Fabrics and purchased black faux leather ribbon with grommets and black ribbon with beads dandling for around $6.00 a yard for each. I then took an E6000 all purpose glue and put them around the ankle strap. I secured paper clips around the straps until the ribbon dried completely.
3. Voila! I now have a pair of shoes that no one else has and it only cost me $27.00 but you could even do it for less.
Did you all have a wonderful Easter? We sure did… and as is with every holiday at our house, I cooked and baked and had enough food for the town. I have to tell you, I made the cutest Easter Bunny shaped Cinnamon Rolls and the best tasting (but ugly looking, although I will prevail) Cadbury Egg Inspired Trifle.
