It's Day 23 and I'm working with this lovely dress again!
We used that side portion...
And today we're using all of the gorg lace appliques that I removed from the skirt portion!
Wanting to do something a little different, I pulled a pair of wedges from my collection that I had every intention of upcycling about 2 years ago but just never did 🙄. It lived in a box of these assorted "to do" projects and now they're finally getting some screen time!
They're neutral and totally cute, however I want to make them cuter!
I mean that cork wedge is just asking for something crafty to get done to it!
First I removed the floral appliques on the top of the heels. They just weren't doing anything for me and I wanted to keep them a little simpler when I begin to add lace.
And here comes the lace! I loved the ivory color against the neutral corking - my original thought was to cover the entire wedge and perhaps dye them a different color, but I became super obsessed with how they were turning out.
With a little help from some tacky glue, I matched the lace design on each shoe and covered the back portion of the wedges. Then I let them sit and dry overnight before putting them on!
Hello new shoes!!
These feel perfect as wedding shoes for a cool, outdoor vineyard or beach wedding!
How pretty did they turn out? I am so in love with these shoes - they work for wedding themed events or with your normal skirt and tee pairing!
23 days til I do!
