Jazz up your shoes with some white ribbon laces

OK, what chick out there doesn't have some adorable flat black lace-up shoes, that are in DIRE need of a pick me up?  No chick my friends, no chick! The easiest solution: add some bright white laces!  I actually decided to go with some white ribbon rather than real shoe laces, to add that extra cuteness factor to my worn in shoes.
Here are my shoes PRE jazzing:

Very cute with the black ribbon, but if you look close up they are getting pretty old and drab:

Just pull those old laces out, and use them as a measuring tool for cutting your white ribbon.  You may want to cut just a smidge longer than your old laces, because ribbon can fray pretty quickly when lacing through some teeny holes.

Lace up your shoes and VOILA!  You've got jazzed up adorable shoes.

I love the contrast of the black and the bright white, but this is really a great way to easily change the look of any lace up shoe.  Try adding some turquoise to some lace up white shoes, or some red ric-rac to some gray shoes.  The possibilities are endless here. 

Have a great day friends.

  2. Really try this with your hiking books or steam punk boots. I love this look! You can change colors to go with anything.

  3. You highly recommend some Fray Check. It'll stop the ends of the ribbon from fraying, and it's the most handy sewing accessory with raw edges! Great idea!!
