Shoes can make or break an outfit. From casual pumps to sky-scraper heels, having the right pair of shoes can take an outfit (and your day) from drab to fab in seconds. However, great shoes don’t come cheap, and every season we find the same styles in every store. If only they were a little more fun or a little brighter or had a little more of the designer-chic style we see on the catwalk and the pages of fashion magazines. Well you know what they say, if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself!
How much would you love to find a pair of gorgeous shoes that are completely unique, just your color and (the best bit) cost next to nothing in a fab sale? Sounds like a dream come true, right? Just one more question – how many pairs of shoes do you have that are just not ‘you’ anymore? You know, those heels lurking in the back of the closet that just don’t go with anything? The flats that looked great last year but are just a bit… tired?
This gallery is all about updating your shoes to create fab new designs. Breathing new life into an old pair of shoes is fun, frugal and eco-friendly. Save time, money and energy by avoiding the shops this weekend and instead get yourself a few craft supplies and get inventive! As always, our galleries are here to inspire you but you can work with the supplies you have for a super-thrifty project or use these techniques to create your own designs. So next time you have an outfit but can’t find shoes to match, raid your stash of old shoes and get crafty. Don’t stop there; there are endless ways to use these techniques… how about handbag to match your ‘new’ shoes? Or a statement piece of jewelry?
