diy: anthro owl sandals on the cheapPosted: April 2, 2011
i fell in love with these wise walker sandals from anthropologie the moment i saw them.
i did not, however, fall in love with the price tag. $148! this seemed a little much for something that i likely won’t wear beyond this season, so i decided to make my own version. i found some similar gold sandals at dsw for $35 (with my birthday coupon) and two owl necklaces on ebay for $3 a piece. i got my anthro-style sandals for a fraction of the price and it was as easy as 1, 2, 3!
UPDATE: i used regular thread to attach the owls- i just wrapped it through the hinges of the owls and around the top of the shoe (no actual sewing required!). turns out that the regular thread is too thin, so it started breaking as soon as i walked. i’m going to redo them with something thicker, like embroidery thread.
