DIY: Tortoise and Turquoise Sole Society “Smythe” Sunglasses

Glitter N Glue DIY Color Block Sunglasses Sole SocietyTortoise 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!

DIY: Strappy Sandal Fabric Wrap

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal DETAILVariety 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.

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal Materials: Strappy Sandals (Shelia available at Sole Society), Fabric, Double Stick Tape, Scissors

 Glitter N Glue Wrap Sandal 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.

DIY: Stud Trim Embellished Pump

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASole 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.
