Pretty Shoelaces

Absolutely and utterly adorable, right?

This is the easiest, simplest, cutest, and most lovely DIY. I bought these loafers at Forever 21 over the holidays and by March, I had yet to wear them. Something about them was drab and not fun. The color, the metal grommets, the patent leather. I couldn’t pinpoint its dreariness. Then I relaced them with some fancy, feather-edged, black ribbon and realized they just needed to be perked up. That’s it. That’s all.

There really is no explanation needed for this tutorial. All you need to do is find some fancy ribbon, twill tape, or some sort of string and relace your shoes. After, you can ogle in wonder at their amazingness (this last step is a must).

    Aw. These are really adorable! Will keep this in mind next time I think about passing over a “drab” pair of shoes… maybe they just need a simple pick me up!

    Cute! I’ve been meaning to do this with a new pair of shoes that were made without laces. They clearly look like they should have laces though so it’s awfully silly they never did. I need some ribbon!

      I haven’t stopped wearing them since I freshened them up (except to bed of course).
