Super Quick Shoe Tutorial – Cutifying

This is a super easy tutorial on how I modified some old sneakers for ultimate shoe cutifying. I find that I need shoes that I can just slip on to run to the petrol station for an ice cream or the corner store for supplies, for times when you just want to get going as fast as possible having complicated shoes really isn’t practical, no time for laces… but I still want to look cute!

Enter old beaten up leopard print sneakers.

Materials for shoe cutifying:

-Old crappy sneakers -Ribbon -Elastic -Sewing thread

First off clean your sneakers if they are dirty, no one wants to handle muddy shoes.

How To Repair Old Slippers -Day 3

I’m super tired tonight so I’ve just got a mini tutorial on repairing old slippers for you all ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been a little obsessed with slippers lately so I’ve got 2 tutorials planed that revolve around slippers. It’s probably because I spend so much time at home but I think a good pair of slippers are a very important part of a girl’s wardrobe ^_^

It takes me a long time to choose slippers (more on that in my next slippers post!) and when I finally find a pair that I like I have a hard time giving them up, I’m the kind of person that will wear them until they literally fall apart! I’m also quite thrifty so at times when money is tight I am all for repairing and reusing anything I can possibly fix.

So I have this cute pair of slippers but…

So what you need for this version of repairing old slippers:

Enjoy!

Back! Outfit of the day, the world of Violet's Shoes (Mini Tutorial)

Outfit time!

Firstly thank you all for your well wishes while I’ve been ill! It made me feel much better every morning to wake up to everyone’s lovely comments ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m all rested up now and should be fine to blog 3 times a week again!

Now a couple of people have asked me how I did this. It really couldn’t be simpler.

Step 1. Buy cute simple shoes on sale. Step 2. Buy matching flowers. Step 3. Get some thread and a needle and sew the flowers on to the shoes. Note, don’t sew through the leather just in case you ever change your mind! Step 4. Enjoy your new awesomely cute Hime-Style shoes ๐Ÿ˜€

See easy…

Lastly are any of you guys who use Nuffnang having problems when you log in? I can log in but I my stats won’t seem to show up… Just wanted to know if I’m the only one before I go and bug tech support!

Anyway it’s good to be back! Hope you enjoyed the outfit post ^_^

Hime Gyaru Simple Lace Flower Tutorial

Awesome over the top shoes with lace flowers are a staple of Hime Gyaru fashion. Now I’m not saying that you should ditch those Jesus Diamante pumps in favor of my cheap lacy flowers but here is a slightly less expensive option.

For Christmas this year I was given some cute wedge shoes that I wanted to doll up a bit, with no money left over after the holiday season here is what I came up with.
