DIY – Create Some More Room In Those Tight Shoes

DIY – Create Some More Room In Those Tight Shoes

I recently copped these Dorothy Perkins Laser Cut Pumps in a nude color and i had been super excited about wearing them. Fast forward to Church the following Sunday, i had not taken more than a few steps and they started to bite, i mean bite really hard. Half way into the service, they were off so i could wiggle my toes. Tight shoes can be a mess. A few years ago, that would have been the last time i’d wear them, but because i have been forced to give out many shoes i love, i knew i had to find a solution. Those shoes were a size 8, there’s no way i would not be able to wear them. So i put some hacks i had learned to use, which i should have done prior to that. In 5 easy ways, here’s how to get more room in those snug shoes you’re not ready to let go of. It could be they came a half size small or you’re dealing with pregnancy feet. The best thing to do most times is to wear them around the house with a thick pair of socks the day you get them. Yup, make your living room your run way and strut in those babies for more than a few minutes. Do that a few times everyday till you actually get to wear them out. But for more effective stretching methods, try any of these or a combination. STRETCH THEM IN A FREEZER: Yep you read that right, it’s just basic science. All you need to do is fill a ziploc bag... read more
Shoe Pick Of The Day – Gianvito Rossi Jacquard Fur Mules

Shoe Pick Of The Day – Gianvito Rossi Jacquard Fur Mules

I love statement shoes, mostly because i keep my clothes really simple, as simple as a pair of jeans and a T shirt. The shoes have to announce my presence and that is why i couldn’t take my eyes off these pair of fur mules by Gianvito Rossi   They cost $995 and you can shop these here. I would save and save and save to own this, no steals allowed. And in 2 looks this is how i’d style them.   I love these mules way too much. One of those shoes i’d suffer whatever pain may come with them.       Would you rock these and if you would, how would you rock them? Peace, love and More Mules Xoxo... read more

Pom Poms, Feathers And Fur Because It’s Tuesday And It’s Shoesday.

Pom Poms, Feathers And Fur Because It’s Tuesday And It’s Shoesday.

No more just a pair of in house footwear, the Pom Pom, feathers and fur shoe trend is one that has come to stay as a fashion statement piece. From Carrie Bradshaw’s Dolce and Gabanna Fur Sandals featured in the HBO Sex And The City series to Paul Andrew’s 2017 Fall/Winter Feather sandals at the 2017 New York Fashion Week, the trend has evolved over the years and looks like it’s going no where.   From the high end luxury designers to the high street brands, there is a pair for everyone and because it’s Tuesday and it’s shoes day, here are some amazing designs that would make you want to jump on this trend. They are the perfect way to put some sass and details to a seemingly boring outfit.         There’s so many styles with this trend and after much debate on personal choices, i hopped on a pair. For the high end designers, you will part with $500 upwards while the high street brands sell for between $30 and $100 (N10,000 and above). You can shop for this trend HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE depending on what you’re looking for. And of course from the retail side of life with Sole Divas. Best part is with a pair of barely there sandals or plain pumps you want to add some vibes to, you can make a pair of your own and save some cash. In these easy picture steps i got from DAMASK LOVE, you are well on your way to adding some sass to your footwear closet.          ... read more
