UPDATE: Shoes too tight? Let’s Experiment!

It works! It works! It really works!!!

I woke up this morning and pulled the bags of ice out of my shoes. Once they thawed out a little I slipped them on and what a perfect fit! So for everyone who has been having difficulty with a pair of shoes that are just a little too tight and shoes stretchers aren’t working… heres your answer!

*** This does not mean buy a pair of shoes one size too small. lol. This is for shoes that have a slight pinch or maybe are a little too narrow but are actually your size ***

Shoes too tight? Let’s Experiment.

2 years ago my brother in law gave me some GORGEOUS Prada flats but they were just a little bit too tight at the front. I went to Prada and asked if this was common, they said every now and again they get a couple of people who have complained about the same thing. I came to realize I wasn’t the only one with this problem – and nor was Prada. So I got some shoe expanders but that was an epic fail. It made no difference.

Then someone suggested I put water in a bag, put them in my shoes and freeze them. The idea is that the bags of water freeze, expand and therefore stretch your shoes! At first I laughed. However, after thinking about how many different ways I could wear these shoes, I desperately gave in. I’ve worn them a total of 3 times and this is a disservice to such beautiful shoes. This evening I decided to fill my shoes with a bag of water. Pictures of my little experiment & Instructions (if you want to give it a try) are below.

How Beautiful are these? I hope this works so I can wear them more often!

First I stuffed the shoes with a zip lock bag. I tried to get the bag as far in the shoe as possible. (Any leak proof bag will do).Photo Mar 16, 10 44 47 PM

Next I filled the bags up with water. Make sure you don’t fill them up too much so you don’t stretch a part of the shoe that already fits.Photo Mar 16, 10 48 09 PM

Finally, pop them in the freezer with all your other goodies! Make sure they are on an angle so the water freezes in the area you want. I covered mine with a shoe bag just incase!

Sophia Webster x Saks 5th Avenue Atlanta

Sophia Webster and Saks 5th Avenue teamed up to throw a fantastic event to showcase her Spring/ Summer collection. There was a DJ, amazing cocktails, decadent hors d’oeuvres, a cotton candy stand and of course Sophia Webster herself! The designer spoke briefly about the collection then milled the room speaking to small groups and individuals while others mingled and networked. The collection is awesome and a ton of fun & the displays were very creative – kudos to Saks’ visual merchandiser and the Sophia Webster team!

We’re Loving: Scott’s Antique Market (Atlanta)

Founded 30 years ago by Dawn Scott, he traveled the country finding antiques and selling them at various antique shows. After years of being an exhibitor he decided to start his own show with an emphasis on customer service. His first one was in Atlanta, GA and expanded all the way to Columbus, Ohio. Today it’s the worlds largest monthly indoor antique show. It takes place every first weekend of the month at the Atlanta Expo Center on Jonesboro Road. Check out our pictures below – it’s a great place for family bonding and treasure hunting!
