I am a very basic dresser. I wear the same earrings week after week, buy plain white Tshirts in bulk at Costco for $8.99 each and either blue jeans or black leggings.
But, I do love me some variety in shoes. Not too blingy and heels are a thing I have left far behind in the past (except for 3-4 days per year). I am a comfort dresser and happy to be rid of caring about style. Warmth, practicality, natural fabrics and C-O-M-F-O-R-T.
As you can see, in the 'before' photo below, these shoes had seen much better days! I am sure I wore them everyday one summer, a couple of years ago - in fact, "plain old gnarly" seems to be the best way to describe them.
To see how easy it is to recycle your own favorite shoes - I posted a tutorial here.
All you need is two sheets of Craft Attitude - available here, a glue stick (I use UHU brand) a pair of scissors and an x-acto knife. That's it. Total makeover cost $5.00 (not including the new inner soles or original cost of the shoes)
I did break down and purchase new inner soles but I can swap out easily as I build my new collection of recycled ONE OF A KIND - altered art shoes!
