Blue. Also, pink is the new red
Meet my new babies! Aren't they beautiful? Got them at good old Dorothy Perkins, during my recent trip to the UK. And no, they did not cost an arm and a leg. Unless you are willing to sell aforementioned body parts for 30 quid.
I'm seriously contemplating putting them on display in my bookcase instead of wearing them outside, where the beautiful soles will be destroyed in a second. One step too far?
Anyway, judging by the number of comments on this post lots of you agree on my view that forgotten stickers on the bottom of our new shoes look vile and disgusting, so I decided to do a mini tutorial on how to remove these suckers fast, easy and without any glue residue.
First, blast the bottom of the shoe with hot air from your hairdryer. About three minutes will do. The glue will soften and you will be able to remove even the peskier ones. Gently start to peel off the stickers. Just remember that if you take too long, the glue will cool off again, so you might need to use the hairdrier once or twice more to finish the job.
I was rather lucky, as the shoes had a protective film that took all the other bad boys with it, once removed.
Still can't get over those pink soles. Christian who?
