They say every picture tells a story, and I like to think that every garment does too. That's why, with every piece you buy, I will include a delightful "story" of the life that your garment once led.

DIY Cutout Boots!

I bought these old boots a few years ago from a thrift store, but I was just thrifting today and I saw tons of old boots that would work great for this project. So after you've picked your favorite pair, now is the time to get your creative juices flowing. Think about cool shapes and placements for your cutouts. It's hard to see in my boot on the right, but I have a triangle cutout on the top right of the shoe and another triangle shaped cutout at the toe. You can draw shapes on the boot or just go for it like I did. Take your box cutter  or exacto knife and make shallow cuts first and then gradually get more aggressive with your cutting. Keep going until you've broken the skin and fabric underneath. Have fun and be careful!

FYI these look pretty cute with socks too!
