The Loose Gold Shoes

Hello Readers. I know what you are thinking. More shoes? Yes, that's right. And I saved the best for last. Or, I saved the most flashy for last. You can decide.

I have had these shoes for a long time. When I got them I thought they had so much going on between the floral design and the gold trim everywhere. I love them but they don't fit. I must have gotten them at the end of the day and my feet were a bit swollen. Now when I put them on in the morning they slide off in the back. I never wear them because of this.

I had an idea for a fix. I was going to attach a strap across the top. With all the gold on these shoes, I choose this gold elastic. A little more shine and sparkle couldn't hurt these shoes.

I gently pulled the sides apart a little and used my hot glue gun to glue one end of the elastic down in the side, as far under the sole as I could get it. I glued it well to keep it from coming off when I am wearing it.

I glued heavily under the sole where I wouldn't feel it. I glued lighter up the sides. 

Here is the finished look. The elastic is soft and comfortable. You can't see it with pants at all. I wore them at home to see if it would hold. If you try this, do a test run before you go out in public. 

Thanks for reading. Now go make something fabulous for yourself.

Those are wonderful fun shoes - I'm glad you found a way to make them stay on! They are perfect with jeans.
