Obviously adding glitter to a pair of pumps is one of my favorite DIYs of all times!!! It’s been awhile since I glammed up a pair of my pumps, but when I laid my eyes these Audra pumps from Sole Society I new I had to give them a glitzy makeover. I just loved the way they turned out. Now I can officially dance my way into, what I’m sure is going to be, a sparkling new year!
Apply a healthy and even amount of glue to the area you wish to cover, then sprinkle on the glitter. Allow at least an hour for your glitz shoes to dry before you wear them. This project never gets old!

Tortoise print and turquoise is one of my favorite combos. The second my Sole Society Smythe sunglasses (available here) arrived I knew I wanted to enhance them with a splash of turquoise. My absolute favorite shad of turquoise is Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos. Although I’ve seen this project floating around the internet where people have used the nail polish as paint, the truth is I’m almost 30 now and can’t consume the smell of nail polish the way I use to! I substituted the nail polish for Martha Stewart’s Beach Glass colored paint, but the results were just as fab!
It’s officially Summer and that means many of us have planned a little vacation. Whether it’s a trip to a tropical island or a getaway to Gradma’s house, a travel bag is a must. The Cassidy Weekender from Sole Society is the perfect travel bag and with the addition of some stud trim, this classic bag is given a whole new look!
Variety is the spice of life… or at least that’s what Grandma use to say! I do believe that a mini makeover the the perfect way to add a little variety to your shoe collection. A fabric wrap is a great way to spice up your Summer strappy sandal. I think of this project as the turban wrap for shoes.
Materials: Strappy Sandals (Shelia available at Sole Society), Fabric, Double Stick Tape, Scissors
I wanted to play matchy-matchy so I used an old scarf that matched my shirt to wrap my shoes. The options for this project are endless! Solid fabric, printed fabric and so on and so on. It’s like back in the day when you would coordinate your hair scrunchy with your outfit…don’t act like I’m the only person that did that!
A Special Note From Kristen: I know I cut up a circa ’86 Liz Claiborne scarf, but don’t worry this is the most action this scarf has seen in years! I salvaged the shirt/scarf combo from my Mom’s closet years ago and have NEVER worn either of them. Thank goodness for project because now the ’86 LC is finally getting some attention! You however do not have to cut up Mom’s scarf. A fun fabric will work just fine for this project.
Sole Society teamed up actress Julianne Hough and together produced a collection of fun and fashionable shoes. The moment I laid my eyes on these minty pumps I knew I wanted to give them a Glitter ‘N Glue make over. I love the silhouette of this pump plus the color is girly and perfect for the season. I thought a studded embellishment would be the perfect way to add a little flare to this ultra feminine shoe.
TIP: If you’re looking for a less permanent option, glue your trim to a shoe clip.

Materials: Flats (Kami flats available at Sole Society), Sequins, Tacky Glue, Tweezers
Using your tweezers, apply a small amount of glue to the back of your sequin and add the sequin to your shoe. Start at the tip of your flat and work our way out. Allow at least an hour for the glue to dry before you wear them.
My sequin flats perfectly compliment my new red haute Sole Society handbag. In case you missed the announcement on my Instagram, Sole Society now has a collection of hangbags. YES HONEY! SS is quickly becoming my one stop shop for accessories. Checkout their entire collection here. They’re all leather and gorg! They’ll be releasing a new collection of bags next month, some a lower price point. I can’t wait to see them!!!!!!!!!!

It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve brought out the glitter which can mean only one thing… it’s GLITTER BOMB time!!!!
Boot season is in full swing so you can imagine my excitement when a pair from one of my favorite online shoe site, Sole Society showed up at my door!!! Last season I took my pair of Sole Society booties and went all electric pink a la Nicki Minaj (click here to see). This season I thought it was necessary to give my Lyssa boots a full glitz make over just in time for the Holidays.
