Strides in Slides

So I noticed (as I'm sure you did) everyone going nuts for these new Fenty x Puma faux fur slides. Don't get me wrong, I seriously contemplated spending $80 on some fur slippers all in the name of RiRi and fashion. I then came to my senses and realized how many manicures and drinks at happy hour that was...I had to gracefully whisper 'sorry' to my girl RiRi as I handed them back to the sales associate. 

I digress..

So I decided I wanted some dope on trend slides too! I wanted to see if I could make something just as dope but more unique, true to me. Everyone is wearing the fur slides, whether Puma or their own DIY. Ok. We get it. I know everyone likes to support their favorite artist project but as an self-proclaimed creative, I thought I'd put my skills to use and save the bread. 

I saw these slides on Pinterest a l long time ago and told myself they were dope but never thought I'd sit down and make them. Well the inspiration came and I went for it!

So I hit the thrift store for some denim and came across a skirt that was the right demin texture and priced just right. I got home to make 1 and ended up making 2. The 2nd pair I made (pictured below) turned out to be my favorite!
