Valentino please!


The Nina shoes I found at the consignment store [below] although
plain are high quality shoes in themselves [you can still find like styles
at Nordstroms] all they needed was some sprucing up. I tried to think
of something I could add to the classic shape without over doing it and
what came to mind was the Valentino Bow d'Orsay Pump silhouette. 
I figured I should use a shoe clip [I found mine in the jewelry department
at Joanns] in case I ever change my taste or just prefer to wear the 
plan black pump alone. Best part….no sewing! 

You only need a few items to make these beauties: 
high heel pumps
super glue
shoes clips/small clips 
good ribbon to match your shoes
[^about 17 inches of ribbon]

P.S. make sure after you glue the clips to the bows you let them
dry for at least 30 minutes before clipping them onto the shoes.
Wouldn't want your removable bows to become permanent! 

1. swag the ribbon from side to side creating
   loops and forming the bow shape.
2. wrap the left over 1 to 2 inches around the center 
   and glue under on both sides to prevent the loops
   from shifting. 
3. glue the shoe clip on, wait for them to 
   dry, and you're ready to go!

Perfect to wear with some rolled up boyfriend jeans.
