Shoe Love: Kate Spade Flats

I struck gold this weekend at TJ Maxx. This was the very last pair. In my size. Calling my name. Can you say meant to be?! They didn't look as pretty as they did in this first picture here though- one shoe was missing the bow. I know, so upsetting but I loved the pattern too much to pass it up so I stood in the shoe aisle thinking about what I could do to make these shoes a perfect pair again.

This is what they looked like before. So much potential. 
I removed the double bow and separated them to make two separate bows. Then I took a piece of ribbon and folded it to the desired size, glued it in place, and wrapped it around the center of the bow. Then I glued the bows back onto the shoes and viola! From start to finish it took me less than an hour to complete.

So... I ended up getting a pair of Kate Spade flats for $16.00!
How incredible is that?

  7. I own a beautiful pair of kate spade sandals. Last month, my cousin deliberately removed bow from one sandal. I thought I could never wear those sandals again. After reading your post, I think I can also fix the bow myself. Thanks for inspiration.
