My red glitter booties (Outfit + DIY)


What do you think of my latest DIY?? I love it!!
It turned out pretty well! Although I must say that making this proyect go wrong is almost impossible.
A pair of shoes, glue, glitter and a paint brush. 
You don't even need patience! The results are great, The shoes aren't the prettiest ones in the world, but that's what I got for 3eur at the street market near our home.
I have the intention of trying this technique on another pair of shoes (I would love a pair of silver glittery oxfords!) or even maybe a note book!

This cute shirt is one of my crazy second hand purchases. Got it a few months ago at a street market (not the one next to our place) for 2EUR, which is quite steep taking into consideration. that I normally pay 0.50EUR, but I do go a bit over the top every now and again and I decided to spurge on it!
I love many things about it: It's long-sleeve, black, leopard print devoré design, sheer and has fine glitter all over it. I got it and it was far to big, but it shrunk when I washed it, that now if fits perfectly. 
I really like and I wear it all the time!

The views were amazing, there wasn't a single could and we could clearly see the sea in the back ground.

These close up photos make you have to be more creative in order not to make the photo look boring.
I do like how this one turned out (Yeah, I know it's not professional, but hey! I have only just started!)

We took these photos late in the afternoon, so the shades were strong. This gave us the opportunity to get creative and play around!!

All post on TheMowWay must have something funny in them, so here you have this GIF. I have NO idea what I was doing here. It just looks soooo funny.

What I wore: 
Sunnies: Zara
Blouse: Pre-Loved (2EUR)
Skirt: Primark
Silk scarf: Handed down (Thanks mum!!!)
Handbag: Carolina Herrera (gift from my mum)
Jewelry: H&M + Primark
Booties: Street Market (3EUR) + DIY

DIY inspiration: 
My first intention was to so some glitter boots, similar to those by Victoria at Style Marmalade, she used glitter pains for a lighter effect, but I just couldn't find paint like that so I had to look for other options. (Might consider this option for the silver oxfords I'm planning to diy next!)
I then found this post by Carly at Chic Steals, she did awsome DIY Jeffrey inspired Foxy sandals with chunky glitter, which was they technique I used.
The last photo with the writing on it (made with Picmonkey!, rip Picnik) was inspired by those Elsie shares on her blog A beautiful mess.
