Blue Satin Bows
These ballet-inspired sandals are for the romantic in all of us. I found the silkiest, most satin-looking ribbon for this pair. I used a cross strap for the base, which added a more dynamic look.
Stacked Petal Sandals
I was obsessed with Mercedes Castillo’s stacked petal shoes (Odalia Shoes [$425]). It would be impossible to recreate these masterpieces, but if you’re okay with seeing the hand of the artist, one can definitely DIY a similar look. It takes a ribbon, scissors, glue, needle, thread, and a little bit of patience.
These shoes are ready for their close-up.
