I am so excited to finally share my second Sprout by HP project with you!  If you missed the first one, it’s here.  For this post, I decided to use the Sprout in a slightly different way for this project.  Basically I used the Sprout to help me visualize a DIY that I’ve always wanted to do. There’s a certain brand of expensive shoes that always has embellished slip-ons and instead of paying an arm and a leg, I figured I should try a DIY myself! And since I do call myself a fashion blogger, this type of thing is right up my alley! For the shoe, I wanted to spruce up a pair of Blu Kicks slip-ons that I received a few months ago. I love these gorgeous gold babies because they are SO comfortable, breathable and island inspired. Breathable is probably the key word there as I’ve tried many slip-ons that definitely are not breathable and that makes for a not good situation when you take them off. I decided I wanted to use some clear crystals to embellish this gold pair.

First, all that I needed was a pair of shoes, super glue (craft glue could work too but I couldn’t find any in our house, and a variety of gems (I found these at Jo-Ann).  What I did was I scanned the shoes onto my Sprout Workspace and then the sheets of gems.  I tried to punch out the gems but was finding that a bit difficult to do.  So instead I opted to scan each size of individual gem.

So I feel like I’ve been posting more fall fashion lately, don’t hate me! This dress is actually great for summer, but the colors do kind of remind me of fall. But that’s the beauty of maxi dresses and how they can be great for any season, worn alone when it’s hot, worn with a…
