*DIY* Gingham Strap Spring Shoes

So I’m sort of obsessed with espadrilles, especially the ones with straps that you can wrap endlessly around your ankles. My legs aren’t long, and sometimes the straps cut my ankle off and make my legs look shorter. BUT, I just always feel very Penelope Cruz a la Pedro Almodovar’s Volver whenever I wear them. In fact, her entire wardrobe in that movie was just perfect.

Anyways, inspired by the Miu Miu lace ups below, I went to M&J Trimming the other day to pick up some gingham ribbons. Since I already had these pumps, this was a super affordable DIY project. Total was around $4! You could easily grab *any* ribbon that matches literally *any* shoe. I just tied the ribbon around my foot. It doesn’t get any easier! And while you’re shopping, pick up some ribbon to tie around your neck for a choker. I got some mesh, velvet and striped ribbons that are going to make perfect chokers. When you buy thick, quality ribbon, it’s actually super easy to tie and untie. You can just tuck the ends under.

  1. Hello all! Recently I have been battling with a lot of Problems. Friends and doctors keep telling me I should consider taking medicine, so I may as well buy Proventil online and see how it goes. Problem is, I haven’t taken it for a while, and don’t wanna get back to it, we’ll see how it goes.

  2. Oh Heavens. I don’t know what to do as I have tons of work to do next week semester. Plus the university exams are nearing, it will be a disaster. I am already being nervous maybe I should buy Vermox online to calm down a little bit. Hopefully it will all go well. Wish me luck.

  3. Didn’t realize how amazing and informative your blog is! Makes me miss you but I can see your fashion sensibility from here. 🙂 I miss ribbons.
