i love TOMS shoes. they are a great brand and pretty much everything i love about modern philanthropy. stylish, profit making and yet still making a massive difference to those in need. what a way to redeem our consumerism eh?!
anyway, because of this i swore to never buy a knock-off brand or even to get them second hand. but i also promised my hubby i would try to stick to my budgets so when rae needed a new pair, onto eBay i went. i figure reuse and thrift are just as valuable.
in order to make these navy ‘boys’ TOMS a bit more girly i did some simple embroidery on the sides in pink thread. a heart and her name is what she requested!
it only took about 15 minutes freehand and i am super pleased with how they turned out!
