Bando: Bows From Your Hair to Your Toes

I have recently fallen in love with Bando, a shop which has adorable bows for your hair, clothes, toes, allover! They also have these absolutely delicious candy-coated chiffon pompoms for your shoes~ “These adorable silk chiffon pom pom shoe clips were inspired by cotton candy clouds and bon bon pillows.” ~ Bando

The story behind their shop is as cute as the brand itself; they urge you to spurge on yourself once in awhile and I’m going to have to. Better yet they offered us an adorable gift for our next giveaway this Spring so you’ll have a chance to win something beautiful from their shop.

Decorate and Upcycle Your Shoes Sweetly

This is a pair of old shoes I had lying around.. I felt they were a bit boring so I rarely wear them. hehe… I think a lot of people have a similar problem, there are always something we don’t want to wear / use, but we are reluctant to throw it away or be wasteful. It is a good idea to give them a new birth with alterations and decoration!

All we need to snazz up these shoes is some lace, two heart-shape cabochons, and some pearls.

1.

First, wrap the heart-shape cabochons with some lace and sew it tight at the back.
