DIY: Shoe Makeover




These shoes host such sentimental values.  Years ago when I was trying them on, this woman with a double chin who obviously watches Trailer Park Boys religiously and have inspirational quotes from JWoww on her Pinterest was hassling the poor sales lady to be quicker to get her shoes. Since I had no plans that day, I took my sweet time and watched her pull Cinderella’s evil sister act on every pair of shoes trying to make them fit while getting more angry at the sales lady that the shoes make her toes ugly. Apparently having Cinderella feet does exist. 

Anyways, leaving one of my many “that girl’s got class” stories from Victoria, BC stories behind, I decided to paint these shoes and give them a new make-over.

  11. Hi popchampagne! I was listening to ne-yo's song Champagne life and it totally reminds me of you! :D btw how did you do that zebra thing? your shoes looks brand new! haha my nails are fake btw I am too lazy to put that much effort. I bake and cook a lot as a culinary student so its troublesome to think about painting 3D nails and removing them ^_^
