I am loving my new dress from ASOS - I wore it to dinner with my newly DIYed heels at The Llawnroc Hotel in Cornwall this weekend* where we had the most amazing stay... It was the perfect excuse to get dressed up because I was invited to take part in a shoes DIY challenge and I had to show them off too!
I was sent a pack of bling crafting items including Swarovski crystals to turn a simple pair of shoes into an award ceremony worthy pair. I had this pair of completely plain nude courts that were just screaming out for a makeover – we've had the Golden Globes and BAFTA awards and of course the Oscars were last night, so it was the perfect time of year to treat my feet!
I decided to go easy on the crystals, but I think that the simple design I used sets off the the two-tone effect beautifully with the plum coloured trim. I'm really pleased with the colours I used - nude courts are exceptionally flattering but can be a bit dull, so that pop of red at the toe and heel adds some much needed colour. If you wanted to see how I gave them a makeover I will show the shoes DIY in full in my next post.
Happy post-Oscars Monday everyone!
