The refashion item for this post are the shoes. The ascot doesn't count because it was just a length of lace folded around the neck.
The shoes were just some plain square toed ones to which I added a belt buckle. It looked great! People even asked where I bought them! I wore them as regular shoes later on.
Here's what I did:
Then, I just taped it in place! This next picture is a bit fuzzy, but it;s just to show the masking tape:
Fold the elastic and tape to the front of the shoe on the inside only.
What do you think? The great thing is that if the buckles aren't right for your outfit, you can just untape them!
