Cheap Chic: Good for the Sole
Not too long ago I was checking out Facebook and came across a very cute DIY Fashion project. My cousin, Traci, took some ordinary black shoes from…..wait for it……Wal-Mart and made them look AWESOME without breaking the bank and spending all day on a DIY project. Let’s see how they turned out.
Here is what they looked like before she started Metro Seven Shoes:
First, she painted the heel gold:
Then she attached some hand-tied bows made from the back-tie of a blouse to the simple black sling-backs. It is also a good way to tighten the strap if it loosens, as sling backs tend to do.
In my opinion, the shoes turned out great! I love ruffles, bows, and anything that is ultra feminine, plus the colors are right up my alley. Maybe I’ll try this on my pair of Steve Madden sling backs that I haven’t worn in a while. I’m sure these would up the ante of the most important fashion basic for every woman, the LBD! When I make a pair of my own, I will call them my ICE COLD shoes (s/o to the men of Alpha Phi Alpha ~Skee Phi~)
