[My DIY] Tribal Wrap Sandals


Before heading out on the road with my book, I stopped by the Daily Candy offices to teach my fellow glasses and bright lipstick wearing gal pal, Lauren, how to spruce up a basic pair of sandals ($17 at H&M now!) with a pop of color. With a little wrapping and way too many 90’s hip hop references, we create the perfect pair of tribal inspired sandals for the summer months!  Head this way for the step-by-step video or check it out after the break!!

    And to which “tribe” are you referring, Jenni? As a fellow Wisconsinite, I know you are well aware that there are MANY indigenous populations in separate tribes in the United States alone, let alone all of those “tribes” on nearly every other continent. I think they probably wouldn’t appreciate being lumped into a homogeneous group for the purposes of fashion labeling.

  19. You are a genius! There’s nothing else I can say!
