Miu-Miu is maybe our favourite brand. But let’s face it, we still need to save our lunch money for 3 months if we want something–even a thigh–from Miu-Miu. Well, I should admit that this embroidered thigh-highs down their Fall runway is sooo–OMG–must have!
Our alternative? Make them ourselves. Here’s what we did:
1. Take a pair of heavy wool or cotton socks
2. Buy packs of sequins and beads from your local craft store, Keep the color palette tight – silvers, rose-golds, very light pinks, black, and clear baubles only. We actually took a confetti pack and sorted the colors we needed from the rest of the sparkle pack, which took about an hour.
3. Break out a needle and thread, and gently sew the sequins in clusters. Make sure you don’t sew anything on the sock’s foot, or you won’t be able to walk!
4. Wear them around. Make people jealous. You know the drill.
Ta daaa! Good luck!
