CelebriDIY Inspiration: Embellished Ankle Straps

So I’ve noticed how celebrities have been opting for minimal traditional jewelry (ie: earrings, necklaces, etc…) and choosing to accessorise their… ankles! That’s right the ankles are making big come back on red carpets all across the world. As if that sexy ankle ever went out of style!

Imagine my DIY delight when I was sitting front row at Nina Ricci and I got an up close an personal look at these blinged out ankle embellished pumps (and by sitting front row I mean scanning the collection on Style.com). My mind was in creative overdrive…

Although my bright blue Aldo wedges are pretty amazing as is, I thought they could use a little embellishment

I ran to my jewelry box an pulled out ever bling out brooch, button and earring I could find. I love the Nina Ricci inspired look, but don’t be afraid to add feather, bows, flowers, studs or chains to your ankle straps. There’s no material a lil E6000 can’t hold!

DIYers Tip: If you use brooches you can simply slip them over the straps. Then there’s no need for glue. You can wear your shoes with or without the embellishments. Who doesn’t love options?!?
