DIY Fringed Platforms
I've talked way too much about these shoes, but I'm obsessed. Here's the story: I ordered them from Topshop, got them, they are too big! Frustrated and too broke to risk buying the smaller ones, I decided to try it DIY style.
I started off with these Steve Maddens, which I found on clearance on the low-low.
Then, I went to the craft store and bought a sheet of black suede which I cut in half and fringed.
Then I sewed the fringe to the ankle straps of the shoes and used a cotton ball to dab craft paint on the shoes to matte out the promtastic shiny material.
So what do you guys think? Do they look mega ghetto? Honesty is the best policy!
