|My DIY mirror-adorned flats!
At mondo shoe trade show Couromoda in Brazil earlier this year, I met one of the designers for whimsical brand Loucos e Santos, which I only WISH were sold in the States. While interviewing her, she showed a group of us some INCREDIBLE flats adorned with a little retro mirror (below). I think you may know that I love nothing more than a ’60s style mirror motif. Reflective little things in fancy frames are all over my apartment. So I was devastated to learn that Loucos e Santos (and sister brand Jorge Bischoff) aren’t as of yet offered in the U.S.
|The meaning in my life and the inspiration for my little DIY project.
And even though I’ve never DIY’d anything in my lifestyle beyond a manicure or a brown sugar scrub, I decided to order a hot glue gun for the occasion. I also chose the Prabal Gurung for Target black pointy flats ($30 at target.com) and looked high and low for a gold-framed retro mirror.
I finally found the ones I scored above on eBay; they’re dollhouse bedroom framed mirrors and they were shipped from Hong Kong. You can buy them here for $5 each.
