I’ve had these Converse sneakers for almost TEN YEARS. And I keep wearing them with most of my outfits, since they look perfect for a modern mommy on-the-go. Well, they simply look perfect on anyone. Even the most unstylish people can find their safe harbor wearing Converse All Star.
Anyway, some weeks ago I finally had to admit that mine were really looking terrible (see pic below) and needed to be pimped up with a fresh restyling. Nothing could be easier!!
I simply used TWO meters of satin ribbon for each shoe, plastic beads (these are white pearls), and my loyal glue gun! First, I replaced the old shoestrings with the satin ribbon, and i glued the extreme ends so as to secure them (so the ribbon won’t fray). Then, I simply glued the beads in between the eyelets and… I was already done!!
Needless to say, since I pimped them up I’ve been wearing them even more often… But they look so cute!!
And they also look pretty new, without spending a penny!
Enjoy and Share the Love,
