Saddle Shoes

Although it's 2014 a girl still gets the occasional invitation to a sock hop.  I don't think '50s themed parties will ever go out of style!  To really dress the part you need the right shoes.  With the exception of private schools saddle shoes aren't very prevalent nowadays but are an essential piece of a 1950s outfit.  So, what do you do when you can't find them? Grab a cheap pair of canvas shoes and a big ol' Sharpie.

I saw a picture for this idea on Pinterest but the link is broken so I won't post that here.  The idea is pretty simple:  color in the middle section of the shoe.  Take out your laces before you begin and make sure your marker is waterproof.  Then, begin coloring!

Wow!  What a difference!  

Finish the other shoe (but take a break first because whoa, is that marker strong!).  Lace them up and admire your finished product:

Have fun, twinkle toes!
