Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We wanted to share a cool video we recently stumbled upon, from YouTube. Have you heard of red bottoms? Usually the phrase red bottoms refers to the ultra fabulous Christian Louboutin shoes, and their signature red color bottom soles. This red color distinguishes them and sets them apart from other shoes. Well if you are looking for a chic way to make your shoes standout try adding some glitter to the soles. This is such a unique and stylish way to add some pizazz to your heels. Check out this video, and learn step by step how to glitter your bottoms.
Earlier this week we have been talking about some of the hot crafting trends of 2012. One trend that I think always remain in style is, glitter. Glitter can go on anything in my opinion. It is a perfect addition to any craft project, and is absolutely a must for any fashion DIY project. Here is a great example of how glitter can turn an ordinary shirt, into something so stylish and chic. I love this shirt. It was created by Stacie over on, Stars for Streetlights. This is a very cool and simple project. All you need is some glitter, and mod podge. Click here to learn how Stacie made this shirt.
