Pompolicious - delicious to look at, fun to wear!
Posted on July 13 2016
I'm always thinking of ways to add some sparkle and color to my wardrobe.
Creating is like breathing for me; I gotta do it! I fell in love with the idea of having pretty little pompoms on sandals… they added so much fun to a regular sandal. But, I was looking to make something a bit more versatile, more multi-purpose… and different.
Armed with some high quality leather cord, beautiful Swarovski crystals, pretty beads, and colorful pompoms, I was ready to rock it! While I was rocking, I still wasn't 100% on...but that never stopped me before.
I decided to create pompom laces, so that I could make any sandal I liked, into a fun pom-pom-full cuteness. Experimenting with how to tie them so as to get the spacing of the laces correctly, I came up with this:
I LOOOOOVED IT! I received good feedback about my new baby, and have since created two more designs:
I was excited, because I realized the length and design worked great as a necklace, a belt, and looked pretty awesome on a nice wide-brimmed hat!
I love these!!! I hope you will too! They will be available as I make them, and custom orders are welcome (of course) if you have a color theme in mind. I am creating a Channel black and white inspired one next!
