I have to admit I have an obsession. I love shoes! There I said it, please don’t judge me . I am sure I am not alone in my obsession. There are so many wonderful shoes out there. I wish I could buy them all. Since I can’t, I need to be creative and find inexpensive ways to jazz up some shoes. Usually the shoes I love most, are by a high end designers, and they have an astronomical price tag. My way of getting around this issue, is looking for something similar in style for less. I often times can find a similar style, but in the event I can’t there is the option to create it myself. Take these Miu Miu sneakers. Erica from Honestly WTF, created these chic sneakers herself. Guess what she used…Mod Podge! I love this project. It is something I myself am definitely going to try soon. Wanna make them for yourself? Well click here to learn how.

Crafting and fashion can go together pretty easily. I love mixing the two. Recently I came across this video of a girl using Mod Podge to create glitter pumps. How cute are these? I usually love anything glitter, but these shoes are an absolute must have item. This is a great craft project to do over the weekend. Jazz up some shoes you already own, by adding some glitter to them. It will really make them pop. Please let us know if you have used Mod Podge on any other fashion items.

So I am well aware that in certain parts of the country the weather outside is beginning to get a little cooler, however down here in Georgia, where Plaid is located, it is still quite hot outside. With that in mind I truly believe one can never have enough tank tops, to help keep them cool. I stumbled across this very interesting way to create trendy decorative tops from t-shirts. DIY fashion is such a hot trend right now, and everyone wants to unleash their inner Project Runway, and design their own clothes. Use this example from Annie Spandex, and learn how to created this look or something similar for yourself. She used some easy to find items and FolkArt paint to create these looks. What DIY fashions have you made lately?
