What could be better than marrying my love for shoe shopping with a little craftiness?
I found these cute Toms wedges on sale at Nordstrom Rack.
The FIRST thing I did was to remove the Toms label from the heel area of the shoe.
Plus, to me, TOMS label/logo is ugly. A whole lotta negative valence happening, if you understand those types of dynamics. (I’m aware he does good things with the One for One giving back campaign.)
I studied the shoes for a while, pondering the shape and colors and textures and found them to be a bit lacking in style.
Hmmm, what could I do to jazz ‘em up a bit?
Pearls didn’t seem right, nor did seashells, but then I remembered I had a container of wooden beads — natural, organic, and elemental.
Almost everything can be improved upon, right?
It was so easy, you MUST try this! My tugboat man thought I bought them this way.
Too easy, right? And that simple embellishment totally transformed rather bland shoes into fashion-forward and UNIQUE animal print wedges. They’ll totally rock with skinny jeans and a flowy, gauzy top, don’t you agree?
Right now, I’m going to go crazy with my other lace up shoes and garnish them with jewels, pearls, and beads. I get all obsessed that way…
I’m a happy girl.
