NEOPRENE BOW SHOES (DIY) FOR MY #ULTIMATEVEGASOUTFIT

Bows and heels: a pretty combination, especially if DIY! // Fiocchi e tacchi:
una bella combinazione, specialmente se fai da te!

When it comes to bows I usually feel uncertain: yes, or not?
Don't misunderstand, I like bows, but sometimes, on an outfit, they can give
a too girly look, don't they?
It's all about how we match them and how many bows we wear.
I found myself looking at bow shoes photos lately and I must say that I like them!
A bow detail on a classic look is pretty and not-too-much, so I decided to
make myself two bows for my pumps. 
The nice thing is that they are removable, so I can wear them or not depending on
my girly-mood percentage of the day!
I used neoprene, so you won't need to sew. They are SO easy to make, give you a chance!

Quando si tratta di fiocchi mi sento spesso in dubbio: sì o no?
Non fraintendete, mi piacciono i fiocchi, ma a volte, in un outfit, possono dare
un look troppo da ragazzina. No?
Dipende tutto da come li abbiniamo e da quanti ne indossiamo.
Ultimamente mi sono scoperta a guardare foto di scarpe coi fiocchi e devo dire
che mi piacciono!
Un fiocco come dettaglio è carino e non è troppo, così ho deciso di crearne due per
le mie décolleté.
La cosa bella è che sono rimovibili, quindi li posso indossare o no in base a quanto
mi sento femminile quel giorno!
Ho usato il neoprene, quindi non dovrete nemmeno cucire.
Sono DAVVERO facili da fare, datevi una chance!

***

 You need // Vi occorre:

- Your pumps (choose a pair with ankle bands or something you'll be able to add bows to). //
Le vostre décolleté (sceglietene un paio con fasce alle caviglie o un qualcosa che
sia infilabile nei fiocchi, capirete più avanti).
- A piece of neoprene. // Un pezzo di neoprene.
- Multi hole punch. // Pinza fustellatrice.
- 2 rivets. // 2 rivetti.
- Scissors. // Forbici.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Cut 2 pieces of neoprene 24 cm (9,4 in) x 3 cm (1,1 in), then cut another piece, 10 cm (3,9 in) x 3 cm 
(1,1 in). // Tagliate 2 pezzi di neoprene, 24 x 3 cm e uno più piccolo, 10 x 3 cm.


2)
Fold the longest pieces in half and superimpose them, in order to make a cross. // 
Piegate i pezzi  più lunghi a metà e sovrapponeteli in modo da ottenere una croce.


3)
With the multi hole punch, make a hole in the centre of the cross. // Con la pinza
fustellatrice, fate un buco al centro della croce.


4)
Make a circle with the little piece of neoprene, superimpose the extremities
of about one centimeter, then make a hole as you see in photo. // Fate un cerchio
con il pezzo piccolo di neoprene, sovrapponete le estremità di circa un
centimetro, poi fate un buco come da foto.


5)
Insert the rivet, from the circle, to the cross and close it. The first bow is ready.
Now repeat from 1 to 5 to make the second one. // Infilate il rivetto, partendo
dal cerchio di neoprene fino alla croce, poi chiudetelo. Il primo fiocco è pronto.
Ora ripetete dal punto 1 al 5 per fare il secondo.


6)
Insert the bands of your shoes in the neoprene circles you made and voilà! // Infilate le
fasce delle vostre scarpe nei cerchi di neoprene che avete fatto e voilà!

 So pretty, eh?
Few days ago I was asked by Vegas.com to create a look inspired by Las Vegas.
I found it so funny and couldn't say no.
So, I imagined myself having a cocktail at the Lily Bar of Bellagio or dining
at Blossom in the Aria Resort & Casino and decided that these bow shoes
could be perfect for it.
If you want to be inspired too (and maybe plan a stay), check all the resorts here.
I leave you with my #UltimateVegasOutfit.
Hope you will like it!

Carine, eh?
Qualche giorno fa mi è stato chiesto da Vegas.com di creare un look ispirato a Las Vegas.
Ho trovato l'idea molto divertente e non ho saputo dire no.
Così, mi sono immaginata a sorseggiare un cocktail al Lily Bar del Bellagio, o
a cenare al Blossom dell' Aria Resort & Casino e ho deciso che queste scarpe
con fiocco sarebbero state perfette.
Se volete ispirarvi anche voi (e magari prenotare un soggiorno), guardate tutti i resort qui.
Vi lascio al mio #UltimateVegasOutfit.
Spero vi piaccia!

  37. I love these! Great job on them and they look great with your dress! I like bows sometimes and sometimes I don't. I think a dramatic bow is best if you do one, so at least you are making a major statement. Your shoes make the perfect statement here! Hope you will stop by my blog if you have time. Have a nice day!
