Last week, I was lucky enough to have two special people visit me in Toronto . . . my Mom and Dad.  We spent a couple days shopping, eating and sightseeing.  My Mom and I took in the Christian Louboutin exhibit at the Design Exchange.  If you’re in the area and you haven’t been, I highly recommend visiting before the exhibit closes on September 15.  So many gorgeous shoes!

 

My Mom also spoiled me with an early birthday present . . . this gorgeous white perforated leather Coach handbag.  I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect white bag for months, and finally found it.  Thanks Mom!

Pretty heels with bows are a huge trend right now.  Just about every shoe brand has their own version in stores as we speak.  I bought the cutest pair from Nine West (seen here) and I’m really loving this Steven by Steve Madden version as well.  I was hesitant to buy too many pairs of bow pumps because I’m not sure if it’s a style that I will continue to love in the next few years.  So, when I was browsing through Michael’s, my favourite store for craft inspiration, and I came across these adorable over-sized bow hair accessories, I immediately started to think of ways that I could attach these to a pair of shoes.

 

Okay, technically this is a DIY because I did “do-it myself”, however, this has to be the most simple DIY ever.  All I did was take the pre-made bows and use my trusty Scotch Double Sided Tape to affix them to the shoes. . . done. . . super simple. . .easy peasy!  I spent some time trying to find the perfect clip to attach the bows to my shoes, similar to embellished shoe clips you can buy already made, however I was concerned that the clips would leave indentations on my shoes.  I opted for the Scotch Double Sided Tape because “I put that s*&% on everything!”  (Quick…first person to name the company who uses that slogan gets brownie points!)  Seriously though, I use Scotch tape on all types of fabrics, including silk.  The thought did pop into my mind that it might damage the patent leather, however, they were stuck securely in place all day, and were easily removed at night without the slightest mark left on the shoes.

 

The best part of this temporary DIY is that I can reuse the bows for other things as well.  I purchased the matching clips and I think I will next try to clip them to a pair of turquoise leather gloves for a cute, girly look.  Another option is to make your own bows, however, unless you have a ribbon cutter, the ends may start to fray.  I have a ribbon cutter on my wish list for the next time I have a coupon for Michael’s.

 

I hope everyone is having a great week so far, and I want to give all of you a huge cyber hug and thank you for your incredible support!

These photos were taken this morning before we headed out to run errands, and this is actually what I’m still wearing right at this very moment.  A warm, casual outfit for a cold, wintery day.  I hope your weekend plans are a lot more exciting than mine.  I’ll be sitting on the couch all weekend working on the blog, watching movies, and cleaning the apartment.  How about you?  Any fun plans?  Hope you have a great one!
