DIY: Glitter Cap Toe Shoe Fashion Fabulousness

c- A new year creates the perfect excuse to clean out the old, and make room for the new. This past weekend, while sorting through my closets, I found these basic black oxfords (above).  I found them last year whilst thrifting. I used to change the laces on these bad boys often, but still, I was bored with them. They definitely needed a makeover. 
1. A  pair of shoes
2. Masking tape 
3. Paint brushes for mixing
4. GLITTER! (I chose gold and black)
5. Fabric glue
 This is where you can get creative. Tape off the part you want glitter-fied from the part of the shoe you don't. I chose to stick with the toe glitterfication but you can glitterfy wherever you desire!
Mix the glitter and glue in a cup...but you have to act fast- the glue dries quickly!

 Not going to lie, it was much easier to just use my fingers versus the brush when applying the glitter to the shoe. I was able to even out the glitter and put it exactly where I wanted.

Now it's time to wash your hands and let the shoes dry.

 A couple hours of dry time should do the trick. Peel the tape off and CHA-CHING your shoes have gone from drab to fab! 

I love wearing these now that I did it myself. It's so simple, yet makes an outfit a wee more sassy.

Because we're obsessed.
