Thanks Miu Miu But Praise You Nylon!


Thanks Miu Miu But Praise You Nylon!

MIU MIU RUNWAY

Nylon took the DJDIY (damn just do it yourself) approach to Miu Miu’s sparkle and bedazzled knee highs and made it themselves.

This just proves some $425 socks are worth making on your own.

Below is the Nylon alternative:

1.  Take a pair of heavy wool or cotton socks (ours were from Falke, but it doesn’t matter – yours can be from the back of your closet).

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.

SPARKLE !

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!

THE TEDIOUS PART

4.  Wear them around.  Make people jealous.  You know the drill.

VOILA!

Total cost:  $20-$30, depending on how fancy you want to get with the socks!

Now for the baller alternative:

1. Drop the coin
2.  Wear them around
3. Make people jealous
