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.
Slip-ons, no lace sneakers, slip on sneakers, or skaters… whatever it is you call them they are here, and stepping very strong in the trends this season! Personally I declare my love for the ones from Céline. But let’s be realistic, my pocket and that price have nothing in common. It’s an impossible relationship… So join me all you DIY’ers that always are looking for a Plan B when it comes to dressing trendy and not having to rob a bank. Let’s declare our unconditional love for DIY! Let’s make our own slip-ons with animal print !
The “metal” or “metallic ” finish comes stomping hard in this season. Whether it’s gold tone, bronze or silver (my favorite). We can see this trend very present in accessories and shoes. And as I always say: Why not make our DIY version!?
I got inspired by the shoes with metal plates from Marni and Céline to recreate this DIY low cost version Lace ups with metallic plaque. Very simple to make and you can remove it and put it on anytime. Transform any lacing shoe with this tutorial!
A ‘Must’ to live in Barcelona is to have at least one pair of shoes that are comfortable and that looks good with all your daily outfits… because in this city you end up walking A LOT! (foreigners who live or have lived here, know what I mean) This is why without a good pair of leather flats you wont survive (I know, I sound dramatic…hehe). And what’s better than the famous slippers to fill in this role!?
These I have are from the Danish brand Ecco, and I love them. As they are basic black, you can play with them and “decorate” them creating accessories you can remove. As in the post DIY Buttons shoe accessory. Do you remember it? For this DIY you only need about 10 minutes and few materials to make your own accessory for your DIY tassel slippers.
