Shoe Makeover

Luck of all luck, a few weeks back I found some plain black pumps for $10. Ten bucks, people! They are just what I have been searching for: round toe, heal that is not too high, but not stuffy or "Mary Poppins" looking, and super comfortable. Just one problem...too plain! So I headed to Joann's to see what I could come up with to add some pizazz. I spent $2 on a few inches of black leather trim that was covered in metal brads, glued it on and that, my friends, is the end of the story.



So much cuter, huh?!


  1. That's a super cute, and budget friendly trick! Might have to try that myself!

  2. soo cute, How did you sew the leather strips to your shoes?

  3. Wow! Those look so much better. What a great idea!
