I have been busy with dye again.

These lovely shoes – the perfect suede slip-on with a low heel were bought from Saks Fifth Avenue, New York in the August sales of 1991!  They were originally a pale beige, which were then tanned about 10 years later.

Now 24 years later they have been transformed to an elegant black suede (using 50 ml “Shucare” leather, suede & nubuck black dye from my local shoe repair man).  Luckily I have kept them in good shape using shoe trees and I really try not to wear the same shoe on consecutive days.  Do you have shoes that could become new again?  Be surprised.  I love my new shoes and they fit me like a glove.

This is something I offer my clients when doing a wardrobe audit – it is not always about getting rid of items you no longer wear, but more about what can we keep wearing but make new again?
