Being able to express myself is important and makes me feel like I am making a statement. I like to stay positive and vibrant and I like for my shoes, clothes, hair and make-up to reflect that. How I present myself on the outside should reflect how I’m feeling on the inside, right? People spend a lot of time and money shopping for the perfect look, when that look can usually be found in your closet right now. So let’s start there. Take a look in your closet and your jewelry box and get ready to revamp your look and make it as vibrant and positive as you are feeling inside!
When a person walks into the room, the first thing most people notice is their shoes. I’ll admit that I do have a bit of a shoe fetish and I hang on to shoes until the bitter end. I have pairs of shoes that I’ve refused to get rid of because of their comfort and functionality and I have found the perfect way to revamp them. With the Rock Your Kicks Paint Kit I can add my own personal design and flare to make the shoes look like new and “add a spring to my step!”
Rock Your Kicks Paint Kit is a DIY kit with which you can take that pair of canvas sneakers you don’t want to get rid of and give them new life. With the RYK Paint Kit you can add your own personal design and flare to make the shoes look like new and you can trek with a new attitude. The kit comes with 5 colors of paint, brushes, stencils and a paint well and wheel. I received the kit and was so excited to get started, I already had ideas bubbling over before I could get the package open! I decided to make them as outrageous and fun as I could because that’s how I feel most of the time
I just recently received a couple of red-eared sniper turtles and loved the designs they had on their backs and bellies so I chose to use them as inspiration for one of my shoes. The other shoe I decided to have a fiery red theme because I am feeling unstoppable and determined. Getting started was easy, I just set up my paints, sketched my design on my shoes with a pencil and started painting. It’s a great release. When I started painting my mind just slowed down and my hand flowed with the brush strokes like a finely tuned orchestra. With my idea for the design already in my head, putting the painted design onto the shoes was easy.
The stencils came in handy to get the perfect lines and letters that I wanted and add a couple small stars and zigzags to add more personality. Before I knew it, I was half through painting my shoes and having one heck of a time. After I finished I let them dry for 24 hours and took them for a test drive. I received so many compliments on my shoes and questions of “OMG, where did you get those?” I got the idea from my imagination and the means to make them tangible by using the Rock My Kicks Paint Kit! This is one way to add a spring to your step this season. There are a few more ways that I want to share that I like to use to revamp my look for upcoming Springtime. They are easy, fun and affordable ideas to add some flirty and fun flare to any look.
1.) Revamp an Old Hat
I love wearing hats anytime of the year, but Spring and Summer especially. They are fashionable and also functional by protecting my skin from the sun. Using the RYK Paint Kit, grab an old hat you have and spruce it up a bit with some more color and designs. A lot like the shoes, you can make it your own and add any kind of attitude you feel like wearing for all to see.
2.) Crop Your Tops
The new fashion trends coming this season are all over the streets and online. One of the styles that I have noticed taking hold are Cropped Tops. Instead of spending bunches of dollars on new clothes, head to your closet. Find a top that you don’t wear any longer or maybe doesn’t fit like it used to. Take that and crop it yourself to the length you desire. Doing it yourself saves you money and you are getting more use out of clothes instead of throwing them out.
3.) Make Bold Colors Part of Your Palette
Each new season always has certain colors that are popular during certain trends. I like to have y own color palette that represents me all year long. I choose bold colors that go with almost any other color, but they are brighter, bolder and louder. I wear crimson red, cobalt blue or coral as part of my palette because they are easy to blend with other colors and patterns, but they stand out and make a statement.
4.) Revive Used Accessories
I love jewelry, fun belts, and hair accessories because that can add the perfect accent to any outfit. If you are getting bored with your arsenal of accessories, the best way to add to life to your collection is to check out second-hand shops. There are so many hidden gems (pun intended) in consignment shops and they are inexpensive and usually of pretty decent quality. I like to see what kind of personality I can find in each piece and find the ones that match my persona!
So, who’s ready for Springtime now? Whether you are painting up a storm on your old canvas sneakers and newsboy cap, or cropping your favorite tops for the warmer weather, there are so many ways to add personality to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. I highly recommend the Rock Your Kicks Paint Kit to add a spring to your step, plus there are so many other items it could be used for, i.e. an old hat.
The kit is inexpensive, easy to use and of great quality. There are so many options to design and with the variety of stencils, brushes and colors, there are no limits to what you can create. Let’s get going and get some “spring” in those steps!
