If you follow my blog or Instagram then you'll already know I'm a hugeee fan of anything printed/floral/paisley etc, so when I was approached by the lovely Charlotte from Shoe Licks to review some prints to stick under heels, I didn't hesitate to say yess! The idea of being able to add that extra bit of detail to an otherwise boring place sounded like such a fabulous idea.
As she says on her Dragons Den audition - it's a great way to add soul to your sole! Check out her audition below:
First, the DIY part
Now, I'm definitely not very gifted when it comes to the arts and crafts department, I'm generally very clumsy with my hands (just ask anyone who's ever received a wrapped present from me)...
...However after a bit of playing around with them I managed to cut and stick a suitable size of the print and add them to my heels fine. I found it helpful to use a pen just to make an outline of the sole but you can in some cases just press the sticker on the sole to make an imprint to then cut along.
Now that my shoes we're all pimped up I decided to take them out for a spin and see what they looked like in one of my outfits.
All styled up in Shoe Licks
I've always been a fan of heels and trousers as I think it just creates an effortlessly chic look, so I decided to test the Shoe Licks out on a very simple outfit, wearing my Khaki Asos utility trousers, crop print Topshop top & my Mango suede jacket (which has barely left my arms since I got it!!).
Rust Platform Court Shoes - £19.99 New Look / Suede Jacket - £59.99 Mango / Crop Print Top - Topshop / Silver Necklace - New Look / Brown Bag - Accessorize / Deft Blue Shoe Print* - £2.99 Shoe Licks
I really love how the colour from the print pops and ads something extra to an otherwise neutral coloured outfit. This blue print seemed to go perfectly with the rust heels I'd purchased from New Look, but Shoe Licks have such a varied range of prints available that I don't think you'd struggle to find something to work into any outfit.
If you want to try them out for yourself Charlotte is offering you your first Shoe Lick purchase at only £2.00 with the code "pimpmyheels" - you can check out their full colourful collection right here.
What do you think? Is this the budget way of achieving the signature Christian Louboutin red sole look? Or are soles better off left alone? Would love to know your thoughts!
Thanks for reading & see you soon,
