Give a Friend a Shoe!

I have a really good friend. She’s so great and she’s called Fiona and she has just moved to Demark to pursue an amazingly fun life, but I am rubbish and never get in touch because I’m terrible like that. At least I know that she knows I love her so it’s fine. She is such a good friend in fact, that when she moved out of her house in East London the other month, she passed on to me beloved items of clothing that she didn’t need. She somehow just knew I would love to get my mits on them! One such item was a pair of suede cagey shoes from River Island in a colour I’m rarely seen not wearing. (Similar ones I like here!) I knew I could have a little fun with these and give them a whole new lease of life, just like Fiona when she moved away! So Fi, here’s a DIY to you!

When I was looking into tweaking these shoes, I came across these incredibly juicy looking shoes on Pinterest. The amazing lady who created them is Maegan and I urge you to take a look at her amazing shoe and other DIYs – jeez I wish mine looked as slick as hers!

I hope you like my transformation into a more Shiny Thoughts style! I’m pretty chuffed myself and hope I’ll get lots of wear out of them – Thanks Fi! Why not take a look at Fionas blog here where she’ll show you all the fun she’s having in Denmark.

P.s I’m currently selling some adorable small size 40 Bunny print Peter Jensen flats that I bought new but they’re too small for me! Please help me give them a home! Thank you girls!
