Your Spinach Tip o' the Day
Friday, July 11, 2008
The thing about shopping for vintage shoes is that, while they can be extremely adorable, they also can be kind of cruddy, smelly and usually three sizes too small. A few years ago, I found an old designer pair I loved at the thrift store—which, of course, didn't fit my non-vintage feet—so I clipped off the cool cluster of little leather balls on the front, super-super-glued them to some leftover bow shoe clips (thanks, mom!; thanks, '80s!) and voila! I just add them to my own black heels whenever the mood strikes.
Keep an eye out for thrifted pairs with bows, flowers and other appliques that you can DIY into your own shoe clips. And that has been your handy Spinach tip for today.
(Now somewhere, back in the day, Ms. Bubble did something similar with Velcro and cute flats and I linked to it, but I just can't seem to find it anywhere in my archives. Which might just be a sign that I've been blogging for way. Too. Long.)
