As much as I love my shoes and I take good care of them accidents do happen. This is clearly what happened with these lovely sandals that I found in a charity shop, sometimes you might find an item that needs a little repair work. Try not to be put off if this is the case you may miss out on something great for the sake of a little repair. There are hints and tips on this in my recent post, buying vintage.
These sandals could be easily fixed by applying a darker shoe polish to them. This will fix the problem and leave you with a great pair of shoes stain free.
If you have a pair of black shoes you obviously need a different trick. You can try changing the design with a metallic craft paint or giving them a glitter makeover.
