I think Marilyn Monroe said it best: “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” Any Fashionista can relate to the empowering feeling that a killer outfit gives us. And if you’re a shoe fanatic like me, you’ll agree that no outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shoes.
This Fashionista totally agrees with Marilyn’s words of wisdom. You would never know it by looking at them, but this Fashionista’s fabulous kicks are the product of a creative and clever DIY project.
After struggling to find a way to work the original wedges into her wardrobe, this Fashionista decided to make the perfect pair for herself. She gave them a modern makeover by painting the straps neon and gluing on some gold studs for an added edge. The geometric cut out of the wedge itself is also a huge trend and gives a chic update to the average wedge.
To pull off these wild wedges, this Fashionista sticks to a cool color palette for the remainder of her look. She pairs a fun and flowy A-line blue skirt with a graphic studded tee to draw out a slight punk vibe.
Last but not least, I have to give a mention to this Fashionista’s tattoo. The Marilyn quote on her right forearm is a reminder of the power that a girl’s shoes can have. So whether you DIY or buy them, remember the right pair of shoes means everything.
