I have been oogling the Kate Spade Keds for quite some time now.
There is one problem….I am cheap. If I pay a pretty penny for shoes that cute then they are going on a shelf, not on my feet. So I did what any cheap girl lusting after shoes does, I got another credit card.
Just kidding, I made my own. In my favorite colors. I stayed on the lookout for a cute (and cheap) pair of white shoes. Finally found a pair at Old Navy that were calling my name, in show tunes form. How can I resist that? Then I came home and got out Pantone’s color of the year paint, you may remember some handsome pots that got a makeover with the same paint. The hardest part was finding something to make the polka dots with. I ended up using a set of foam ear plugs that Tim keeps around so he can ignore my snoring. What as if I actually snore, c’mon.
After about twenty minutes of dotting, I busted out the gold paint pen and glitzed up the toes. Say ello to my new favorite shoes. I think they are fun and funky and perfect for all our summer shenanigans.
Even Asti approves. Have you ever made your own shoes? When I was in eigth grade I took sharpies to a white backless pair, they were my favorite shoes for at least two months.
