There is nothing more classic in women’s footwear than a good pair of Mary Jane shoes, best known in Spanish as Merceditas. I think all of us have or have had a pair in our life. Flat or heeled, black or colored.. this shoe is a good classic.

Today I decided to do a DIY to my old pair that I had forgotten in the bottom of my closet. They are ideal for this season, that is not extreme cold or extreme warm. Make a bow for your shoes and wear a great classic in a different way.
