i agree...nice shoes!
good luck!
I am terrible and life has been hectic and I only took them to the cobbler like three weeks ago! He replaced the bit that ties the back to the buckle (I can't really explain?) with a stronger leather on both shoes... still didn't get the chance to wear them but I really want to!

that sounds promising!

i haven't worn the flatforms yet- but it looks like the glue might work...
...

i also repaired three hair ties yesterday...
i put new elastic in them...
*on of them is just two wood spheres but it's very special to me as it was a gift to me from my parents when they went to holland...
i was too young to go with them at the time...
it's been a treasured item ever since...
*i replaced the white elastic with black and it actually looks much better now!

So I just bought some Porselli flats and it would seem while trying to break them in (they were ever so slightly tight in the toe area) there has developed a teeny tiny rip in the seams. I've worn them a total of maybe 12 hours over the course of the week. They are indeed delicate. The funny thing is I don't even care right now...

The top near where the ribbon ties. And it's not like my feet were too big - they weren't too small they were just snug and needed to conform to my foot like all leather shoes do. I can still wear them and probably have them fixed but I'm put off from buying another pair now. Oh well.

YES! more holes, patches, splatter paint, make it look purposeful and high end :-)

agree about the jeans~!

crazy about the porsellis...
...

so- i just repaired a vintage string of small aqua blue crystal beads that was gifted to me...
hope it holds!
the beads are just gorgeous~

sadly- i have had a small tragedy...
it's not a fashion one...
it's a small dish purchased in tokyo at the nezu museum...
i bought a set of two and one of them fell and broke in pieces...
...
i have them all and will try to glue it back together...
but it's really too many pieces (six)...it won't work well...
i can tell...


so sad...
i miss that little bunny...
it was one of my fave things...
and i used it all the time..
which is how it broke...
*sigh*...

i also dropped and broke an indigo/white japanese bowl i got here...
it was the perfect size for holding and eating with chopsticks...
but i guess it was slippery...
i can probably fix that one...

also- both of my wooden japanese bowls have been damaged...
...

waaahaaaa....

^ I'm glad it was in the course of using and enjoying it that it broke ... at least you weren't saving it for 'best' and meanwhile the cat swept it off the shelf!

good point...
...

so- i wore my jean charles pony hair, zebra stripe flats and the leather sole started to separate on the way to my appt...
on the way back home, the other foot also started...
...

that is bad enough, but the sole looks like it was stitched...
it's not...it was just a fake out...
it's just glued~~!!!
...

anyway-
shouldn't be too hard to fix...
supposedly cobblers use barge glue- industrial strength rubber cement...
i got some and will have a go...

it's just ridiculous cause i can count the times i've worn them on one hand!!

*shakes head*...

re: the ongoing saga of my melissa platforms...
the glue i used didn't hold after all...
but then i suddenly had a realization...
i do NOT need that strap at the back of the sandals at all...
and since they are just rubber...
i took a scissor and neatly cut off the strap just now...

voila!...

...

*just cannot believe i didn't think of it sooner...

My travel cosmetics bag is suede (which I know is impractical, but it is suede non the less!) and on my way home a 1000 ml bottle of liquid soap exploded in my bag... Anyone have any bright ideas as to how to clean it? Wait for it to dry and try to brush it off?
