The next few posts are going to center around versatility and reuseability. I'm very attracted to the idea of taking an item and altering it slightly in many different ways. So instead of buying six different pairs of shoes, you would alter one pair six different ways. In this manner, you could easily customize the shoes to match a particular outfit.
To make this idea a reality, I took a pair of old black heels and punched six holes along the sides, Two in the front, and two along each of the sides. Then I threaded a black ribbon through the holes; as you can see below, there are several different configurations to choose from.
