easy as 1-2-3-shoes

you will need

Happy Monday!
Today I’m going to show you how I shrunk my shoes. I found these gorgeous Miu Miu ballerinas at my local buffalo exchange, and although they were a size too big I just couldn’t pass them on. I found this method to be very quick and effective.You will need: water, a blow drier and leather conditioner.

Step 1: Carefully wet the sides of your shoes without getting it on the sole.
Step 2: Blow-dry . Repeat the steps back and forth until you achieve the desired results.
Step 3: Apply leather conditioner to preserve the longevity of your shoes and pamper them after the blow-dry.
* Tip: This will only work of leather shoes, otherwise they might just melt and you will be very sad.

P.S. Video tutorial here in case you need more help:)

    Okay great Idea! So if this technique works on leather shoes, would also work on leather jackets??
    I have a beautiful leather jacket, but it’s a bit bigger than my size.. :(

    Thank You very much. XOXO
