A Little Blush and Wine

Ribbon laced ballet shoes…who doesn’t love this pretty romantic look?  We all wanted to be ballerinas once, didn’t we?  I’m excited about this lace-up trend but not the prices!

So thank you Kathleen from Carrie Bradshaw Lied.  She did this super easy DIY for The Every Girl blog and I thought, “I can do this too”.

For less than $50, I got two pairs of flats and two giant reams of great quality string.

I found the Shoes and String on Amazon.

I didn’t have a leather cutter, but what I have is very similar.  My tool can be used to add holes to belts that are too big.  You can get one for $8 and it’s a great investment.

I love how these sweet pink ballets turned out.  Paired with my plum/wine jeans, the color combination is gorgeous.

 Find the center of the shoe and make a mark with a pencil.  I just eye balled it.  No need to measure exact.

Then punch out your holes.  I punched two on the side and one in the back.
