Its officially October!…
My favourite time (and month) of the year because not only is it the month I was born… but out comes the A/W wardrobe – fur coats, Autumn boots, chunky scarves and cosy nights by the fire with a hot chocolate! YES. So here’s a little something from me to brighten up your Autumn and guarantee that your feet are on fleek this season!
Whilst working on my new A/W line – The Powder Collection – I envisaged some of the pieces being styled with fitted ankle/over the knee autumn boots. I looked around to find the perfect pair but struggled to find any in the exact colours I wanted! After playing around in my studio I found a fabulous way to recreate my own self-made fitted boots in any colour I wanted – & I’m sooooo excited to share this with you, its super low budget and really simple to do… I promise!
I’ve written a step-by-step guide below with pictures to follow so you can get the celeb-look for yourself – without even having to leave the house!
All you need is…
– A pair of pointed heels
– A pair of socks
– A pair of scissors
… & 5 minutes spare!
Find a pair of pointed heels in the colour you want to create your boots. Find/buy a pair of thick, high quality socks in your chosen leg length – try to colour match the socks as closely as you can to your pointed heels.
Roll up each of your socks and pull them over the front of the pointed heels (just how you would if you were putting them on your own foot) Pull the socks taut.
Create a tiny scissor snip in the sock where it sits on the heel of the shoe. This will then allow you to pull the sock over the heel which will make the two items look like a boot.
VOILA… You’ve transformed your old heels into a FABULOUS new pair of fitted boots.
TIPS: To strengthen the bottom of your new boots you could also buy a pair of self-adhesive rubber grips pads to stick on the balls of your shoes (try this link, they are super cheap!) but if your wanting a quick fuss-free fix roll with the boots as they are.
Literally in love with my new boots …and just think, the possibilities are endless – patterned socks, knitted socks, lacey socks. Team with a sassy jumpsuit from the Sian Marie Powder collection and your ready to kill it this Autumn!
How would you wear yours? I’d love to hear below
