I was watching a DVR'd Nate Berkus show today... which, PS, is a fabulous show. I just love him! Anyway-- He did a segment about turning things people were about to throw away into new usable/pretty things. One guest was throwing away brooches she never wore-- Now, I don't know why someone would do that! There are soooooo many things to do with them! But anyway, she was going to. Of course, Nate had great ideas~
This also got me thinking... I know I've seen/heard about this before, but... dressing up shoes! And in perfect time for New Years. Waaaaaaaay cheaper than buying a new pair! It's also reversible, if you so choose. If you have a pair of earrings that you no longer wear, use 'em, mismatched brooches in the same general shape, use 'em... You might get some weird looks with that last one, however, I always say Be Yourself!!!! and do NOT be afraid to do so! Be unique, be different~
Here are some pictures that I found of 'brooches' on shoes...
|This can also be done with boots. How fabulous would that be?!|
|I think these are so fun! :)|
|I feel like these are Havianas, but can't be sure. Either way, I am SO doing this (once it's warm enough down here in FL to wear them again!!!) :) :) :)|
