This is the season of gifting...
I gave myself these red Repettos a while back (they were on sale bien sur!) and I was soooo happy.
But (it's a big but) these shoes are rain makers. I should have sent them to the Mid West during the drout. I wear these red shoes and $#@!, if it doesn't pour cats and dogs.
They're in very sorry shape. Sad and decrepid would not be an understatement.
Looking at old PB posts a bell went off. Why not cover the tired red suede with a black permanent marker?
Easy peasy if you have lots of time to kill and are a risk taker ahem.
Trouble is, after completing one shoe I didn't much feel like doing the other shoe...
And wouldn't a nice new fat bow be an improvement like these Jaime Mascaros?
TA DA! I did it.
They don't look half bad...at least from a distance. I even got a compliment in the hair salon. Could this be an improvement?
I tried to get my 'new' ex-red shoes into the picture but it was no go. The Plaza Hotel's magnificent Christmas tree is cordoned off with a velvet rope.
Meanwhile Bear is enthralled with Bergdorf's poodles.
Dear PBers, I hope you get all the gifts of your hearts desire.
Thanks for coming along for the ride.
