T H E C R E A T I O N:
Here are the ingredients you will need to make your Miu Miu inspired flats
A pair of ballet flats
black satin ribbon
black and white plaid ribbon
super glue of choice
What you are going to do is take your ballet flat and you are going to cut that pink or black elastic band from your shoe. Make sure to get a clean cut because you don't want any imperfection displayed on your shoe!
Try your shoe on and determine the length and where you want to place your ribbon that will wrap around your foot first and your ankle second. Once that is determined take your first shoe and your plaid ribbon for the first side and cut the end in an angle. Take that piece and super glue it to the area where your arch would be!
Still working with the same shoe, repeat that process for the other side of the shoe!
Now working with the other shoe, repeat step 2 except now just do it with the black satin ribbon.
Let the glue dry and then try your beauties on, now when wrapping your ribbons you want to make your look appear effortless, so just wrap the ribbon around your ankle twice and knot it!
When it it comes to styling these beauties you can practically wear them with anything, but to keep it simply wear them with an over the knee dress or a pair of distressed jeans! I hope this was helpful!
