My friends Kelly and Andrew make up the duo of the award-winning design team, Basemint. They were up for (and won!) two ADDY awards and the ceremony was held last weekend. As friends, we went to show our support. The event was held at the Hoyt Sherman, and it was a classy affair. The awards show was themed in a 50s who-done-it style. So we wanted to dress a little retro for it. I didn’t have much that screamed retro in my closet, so I decided to wear a lbd and jazz it up with some retro accessories. For jewelry, my grandma Bonnie let me borrow some lovely pearl earrings. And here’s what I did for shoes:
It’s pretty self-explanatory. All you need is an old pair of shoes, mod podge, painters tape, white paint, and a paintbrush!
It was a fun night! I even got several compliments on my shoes. I definitely pretended I bought them this way.
