We all have them. A drawer with scarves we never wear. Some have holes or runs or the hem has come out. Some those little square ones that can only be tied and worn one way. Shoe shopping last weekend and totally loving all shoes with bows available this season, of course the "vintage" in me immediately surfaced ~ why not use those vintage scarves we never wear on our shoes for a fun, unique look and enjoy them!

This was the easiest idea to duplicate ~ match any scarf to your outfit, thread it through any ankle strap shoe and remove the existing shoe lace: A fun print to pop your outfit ~

or the vintage solid sheer chiffon scarves to monochromatically match your shoes ~

Use a long scarf to make plain pumps into cute ankle strap shoes by wrapping the long scarf around the instep then tying into a bow at the ankles ~ a whole new look for old shoes!

Cut a damaged scarf in half and make bows, using shoe clips, velcro or even a tiny dab of hot glue to
 attach ~

Or do sassy scarf bows to the back of your pumps, attaching them with vintage clip earrings ~

Not a pump or high heel person? Cut a damaged long scarf in half then roll it tightly to use as shoestrings for your favorite boots or tennis shoes ~


Just think outside the box, and have your own unique style, the perfect shoes and the best part ~ enjoying those vintage scarves! And no, I have none available in my shop,i'mm experimenting with them on my shoes :)
