On again Off again





I actually DIY'd these shoes before the big LV pair. You see the brown color underneath the lace? That was the color of the whole shoe, previously. My sister bought them, wore them a few times, gave them to me, I wore them a few times and then they just sat on my shelf for almost an entire year. So, I decided to have a little fun with them! I figured even if I still don't wear them after the change at least they'll look a little more interesting!
I pulled out a bottle of white acrylic paint and proceeded to cover the entire wedge with it. After that dried I painted it over with a clear sealer. The next step was to make the strap match the rest of the shoe somehow. I thought of doing some painting detail on that, I thought of making cut-outs, and I thought of just painting the whole thing. Finally I concluded to use some leftover lace from another project and glue it on, discreetly of course. All done!
They still aren't particularly my style and I'm still quite puzzled about how to make them work with my wardrobe but at least I actually like them now!

The acrylic paint worked so well on those wedges - what a wonderful effect! Arrghh I want those Ashish wedges so much but they make me literally like 6ft3 and my ankles are pretty dodgy at the moment so I don't know whether they are up to it! Thanks for the comment about my eyes - my bf says they look like either slate or the bottom of the sea. He's so lovely. I wish I could still prance around bare legged in November - JEALOUS!! :) x
