Blair Eadie’s shoes {DIY: Black Toe Pump}


Beautiful miss Blair Eadie from Atlantic Pacific  has stolen my dream wardrobe. These shoes were inspired by her (here) Zara shoes, and makes me one step closer to owning her style  :D

Here is my DIY to copy her incredible style!

DIY: Black Toe Pump

  1. Supplies: Nude pumps, acrylic paint, tape
  2. With the tape, section the toe end that you want black. Paint the tip, and
  3. Once it is dried, carefully peel the tape away
  4. And Voila, prettiness!

  1. These shoes are so cute! I own a pair of Missoni for target heels that look very similar except with a faux cherry wood heel. I immediately thought these were another designer version and am incredibly impressed that you made them! Will the paint stay on even if you walk through a puddle? Beautiful shoes. And even better that you can brag about them being improved by your artistic abilities.

  2. Wow so creative, they look like totally new shoes now!

    omg I absolutely love this, why did this never cross my mind? I guess when it comes to painting fabric I always think it won’t stick or it will just wash off. I definitely need to try this.

    This DIY by Made In Pretoria is so easy, why did it never cross my mind? I am definitely going to hit up a few thrift stores to find a good pair of trial pumps for this. Anyone want to do a thrift store run with me?

  5. I’m pretty sure I want your pants. And some shoes to try this on.

  21. […] DIY idea: Take a pair of flats that you don’t care for anymore, tape them up and paint away. Get fun with it – hot pink neon, black, gold. So many options. It’s an awesome way to revive those shoes you were just going to toss out anyway. More pictures and details on MadeinPretoria […]
