Basically, I've been thinking about these shoes a lot.
So last night when the commercial came on again, I paused it on my DVR and grabbed my camera, so I could at least get a better look at the heels in some photos, to maybe help me in my search for them. But in looking at the photos this morning, I discovered something. The little straps with the bows in the back that I've been so enamored with appear to just be strings tied behind the girl's ankles, and are not really straps at all.
Here's the photos I took, so you can see what I'm talking about:
See what I mean? It just looks like there are little black strings wrapped around the T-strap on the front, and just tied in the back into bows. I don't even think the strings are attached to the shoes themselves, and it's a super cute and easy way to add some extra oomph to basic T-strap sandals!
I actually don't have any T-straps like these, but I dug out an old pair of pink shoes that have a similar "scoop" on the ankles to try to see for myself if it was really that easy to create this extra strap + bow look. And it totally was!
(Please ignore my very dirty mirror, and floor!)
I am definitely inspired now to find some cheap black T-strap sandals, and add my own strings to recreate this look from the commercial myself! And it will be way easier than trying to track down some elusive brand of shoes I saw on TV!
Have you ever been inspired to recreate something you saw on TV for yourself?
