Color Magic

I found these awesome shoes at a thrift shop.
Although they were incredibly cute, they were very discolored with age. They're not even my size, but I got them anyway.


I tried cleaning them, but nothing really worked. I only paid $2.00 for them, so I decided I would try dyeing them.

Well, it didn't go as smooth as I had hoped. The whole dyeing process made them shrink down to a tiny size 5. Do you know anyone with feet that small? I do. My best friend! Her feet are so tiny that when she buys the smallest size available in women's shoes, she still has to shove a cotton ball in the toe, so they don't flop around when she walks. I gave these to her, and she said they're the first pair of shoes that actually fit her. Hooray!

P.S. You can dye just about anything any color you want. Check it out.

    I love those shoes, Lynette! They remind me of something Marie Antoinette would have worn.
