“I loathe fashion. I want to dress in a way that is becoming to me, whether it is the style of the hour or not. So it should be with all women, in my opinion.” -Natacha Rambova
Creativity comes in handy, sometimes unexpectedly. I recently brought home a pair of wedge sandals with metallic khaki straps. Although I’d loved them in the store, the novelty soon wore off. Rather than bring them back, however, I decided to turn them into an art project.
I knew that taking markers to a perfectly good pair of sandals could be risky, in that the finished product might not look as wonderful as the image that existed in my head. This is the same type of risk any artist faces when presented with a blank canvas. However, with a bit of faith, the artist does the work regardless. Chuck Close once said, “Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work.”
The following images demonstrate how a pair of wedge sandals might go from blasé to rather funky.
VOILA! Creativity plus fashion equals a fun wardrobe.
