Dandy DIY

This afternoon I stopped by one of my fav thrift stores after a brunch date with Abby and found these little beauties. I was most attracted to the color, part dove grey part old lady orthopedic, I had to have them! At a whopping $10 who could say no?

Now what to do about those weak tassels? I gathered up some trim I had lying around and got to work.

Using some jacquard ribbon and small buckles I constructed a couple bows to apply. Once completed I stitched them right on top of the tassels. Handsome, no?

I'm quite pleased with the outcome and with fashion week just around the corner I'm dying to take them out for a spin!
