Almost an Epic Fail

Today Lacey and I decided to try and make our own glitter ballet flats. I have been trying to find a hot pink or a light pink pair of glitter ballet flats to wear for my wedding, because that is totally how I roll, haha! Well, I haven't been able to find any so my friend Krystal over at Hello Darlin' posted a DIY on how to make your own glitter flats.

So we set out today to try and make them. Well, it took us most of the day just to find the flats to use. We spent all day running around town just trying to find plain black flats. We found the perfect ones at Target, but of course, they didn't have the size that we needed. So we went to another Target and again, they didn't have the size that we needed. But when we were at the second one, I found the cutest pair of glitter flats that I hadn't seen before. I loved them so much, but again, they didn't have my size. So we decided to go to the SuperTarget on the other side of town. And of course again, they didn't have either of our sizes in either shoe so we weren't sure what to do.

After searching for a few hours for these shoes, we decided to go eat lunch at this Thai restaurant. We both had Pad Thai and it was really yummy, but it was a little spicy. haha! I'm such a baby when it comes to that stuff. Afterwards we went to Ross and TJ Maxx just to see if we could find anything, and again we found nothing.

After all of this searching we finally say what the heck, we will try Wal-Mart. We got into the shoe section and the first corner that we turned, there was an entire rack of plain black flats just hanging there, laughing at us, haha! Can I just say that we felt so stupid for not looking at Wal-Mart to begin with. So while we were there, we decided to look for the rest of the supplies. We were able to pick up all of them except the actual glitter. They only had a few colors and they weren't quite what we wanted so we will have to pick that up some time this week at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.

The shoes I ordered. They aren't pink,
 but I really like them
With all of that being said, we didn't actually get to make the shoes today because we ran out of time. So this was almost an epic fail, but luckily we were able to find the shoes so it wasn't a total fail. And, I decided to order the other glitter flats that we found at Target online just in case ours don't turn out that well. So I may have just ordered the shoes I will be wearing with my wedding dress. Eeeek!! They should be here by the end of the week. I will keep you guys updated on how making our own does go though. I will post some pictures as soon as we have them done. Hope that everyone had a good weekend!
