DIY: Mouse Shoes (Marc Jacobs)

I had some old shoes that needed spicing up so I decided to use the 'Marc by Marc Jacobs' classic shoes as inspiration. I love these shoes and think they are soo very cute!
Here is my take: not as nice but they will do till I can afford the Marc by Marc Jacobs ones.
Here's how I did it:

I started off by removing the bow from my pumps using a seam ripper. Then I drew on the eyes using sharpie, glues on the nose (using super glue) and sewed on the ears. With the ears I pinched them in the middle to give them some shape. I then drew on some whiskers and I was done. Using buttons as eyes probably would look better (I have a fear of buttons that aren't being used as fastenings, DON'T JUDGE!)

'Boho' Summer Style Finds

Kimono: At last! I found a gorgeous kimono style top at 'TKMaxx'. It's by monsoon and was a steal at £7.99. It's a cotton/silk blend and has a pastel butterfly design.

In this outfit I have paired the kimono with a plain grey V-neck t-shirt from 'Forever 21', some dark rinse, denim shorts and several necklaces layered on top of one another.

Dress: I also got this maxi dress from 'TKMaxx', it cost £12.99 and has a really nice monochrome tie-dye effect.

Sleeping Under the Stars: Galaxy Duvet

I love anything galaxy print and DIY-ing a whole duvet would have been very time consuming! So, when I saw an Outer-space duvet set at Tesco, I had to have it!

'Boho' Hair wrap/Braid

 I love dreadlocks and hair braids so, when I was bored I decided to give myself one. I used embroidery thread in earthy colours and knotted them at the top around a section of hair. Then I just wrapped the thread around  and when I decided to change colour I would wrap in the opposite direction to make it secure. Near to the bottom I just knotted it and left the ends to merge with my hair.
