Okay so I'm clumsy. I have even been known to 'trip' over a leaf or two in my time, so I have awful luck when it comes to shoes, nights out and having that one too many.
So when I scuffed up my favourite (and most comfortable) wedges, there was no way I was going to throw them out, so I decided to take inspiration from these:
|Jeffrey Campbell 'Tick' £130.00|
|New Look Wedges £24.99|
|You can see the chunk I have managed to take out of the back ... Ooops :/|
I know these aren't to everyone's taste, but I love them! For a grand total of £1.47 per shoe they're a lot cheaper than the real deal and they have cut-out detailing too. Admittedly I am a little scared to wear them, but I think they'll look amazing on. I'm definitely going to post some sort of outfit of the day featuring these when I've got the other one done.
For a first attempt at fashion D.I.Y I'm very proud of myself! Here's how I did it:
I firstly made a straight(ish) line of pins down the centre of the heel as a guideline.
I then made two rows of pins along the bottom of one half of the shoe, stopping at the centre of the toe. I then repeated this along the top. The front was pretty much filled in by this point.
It took approximately 3 hours to do the whole shoe and around 600 pins. I got them for 73p a box at Wilkinsons, so it's a relatively cheap fix. I'm also thinking out switching out the laces for ribbon or something, but we'll see how that looks.
Like I said I still have the other one to do so if you'd like some sort of video how-to for it I'd gladly do it!
What do you think? What are your fashion D.I.Y tips?
