This week, I noticed quite belatedly that my poor oft-used Clarks shoes were starting to look shabby around the heels. Therein lies the hazards of wearing your shoes while driving. It doesn’t help that I also walk a lot in them, and find myself stepping into holes, uneven surfaces and catching my heels on stuff. I’m a bit of a klutz – no Louboutins for me 😛
So, my heels look like crap 🙁 I also discovered that the heels were plastic and the white bits showing after the black overlay has been scraped off, looks terrible. I also discovered this belatedly before I had a dinner to attend.
What’s a girl to do then? Why, improvise of course! 😉
I picked up a black permanent marker from my office desk and proceeded to colour in the white plastic bits. Its not a perfect solution, I’d warrant. But it’d do in a pinch. From afar, nothing looked amiss (see picture on top) and lets face it. Who would be crawling on their hands and feet in a public place observing the state of your shoes eh? 😉
I also coloured in part of the worn leather bits. As I said, its not a perfect solution but it makes you look less scruffy. Ideally of course, you should notice all this BEFORE you leave the house. I sometimes get distracted or am in a hurry and just wear the same pair of shoes all the time hence my problem and emergency rescue.
Have you done something similar? Do you have an emergency shoe rescue tip to share?
You just never know when a tip you share might come in handy for someone else 😉
