DIY | PEARL SLIDE SANDALS

Pearl embellishments seem to be everywhere this year, playing off of geometric shapes and minimalistic style. They influtrated blogger closets and must-have lists with the Miu Miu and the Zara pearl slides, and show no signs of stopping as pearl embellished jeans and denim jackets are also quite popular this season. Wanting to join in on this trend, I decided to recreate the Zara slides as the original ones from Zara did not fit me and were quite pricey for something that screamed DIY. As always if there’s a way to make it for cheap and personalize it to be unique to me, I’m all over it. Read on to see how you can recreate these pearl slides to rock for the rest of summer!

DIY Inspiration: Cut Out and Bound

It’s Net-a-porter’s semi annual clearance, so now you know what my home page will be set to for the next few weeks. All wonderful designer items on sale at a price I can potentially covet at. While going through the site, I realized that these 3.1 Phillip Lim cut out leather and stingray ankle boots were looking vaguely familiar. Of course it was reminiscent of the Zara close toe strappy sandals from their TRF Lookbookย which I’ve seen previously; silly me for not paying attention to the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway!

I definitely love the hits of colour and metallics in the 3.1 Phillip Lim version and it is a simple DIY with the TRF shoes. Grab some paint, a brush and some drying time patience (which can be like watching paint dry). See what I did there??? Yup, I’m pun-tastic!
