DIY/Quick Fixes...

Let me preface this post by saying....
I'm slightly crafty...and I have no problem trying new things...


Ok ...So I have this pair of shoes that I haven't worn in forever...
Why, you ask?
Because they have a strap around the ankle...
And like most(some/maybe just me) big-ger women...
I have what most(but not I) would classify as a cankle...
So the straps... while not bothering me... would look as tho they were cutting off my circulation...
So one day I decided that I need to do something to fix that seeing as tho I do like the shoes...
And they would flow perfectly with my wardrobe...

So what did I do?
I went to the dollar store and picked up some ribbon...

And proceeded to modify my shoes to meet my needs...
IF you would like to know what I did...
You're in luck cause I'm going to show you...


So after I fixed my shoe...
I tried an idea I got from a blog...
And unfortunatly I can't remember who linked it or where the blog is...
I know.. I suck...
But yeah the girl totally took a pair of old pants...
Threaded some ribbon thru the hem...and made harem-esque pants...
I thought the idea was so cute...
I had to try...


Even tho mine look a little more like skinny legs...
I must say I love...
If anyone knows the link to the blog...
please let me know...
I'd love to give credit...
