Now, I didn't do this for fun, or to be different. I've had these
shoes for a couple of years and they have served me well. I have
danced, partied and worked in these babies ... often a little too
enthusiastically, resulting in plastic bows that may at first look
to be entire, but are actually in many, many pieces and are being
precariously held together with hope, superglue and blutack.
So I'm being proactive and replacing the bows before they start
looking like a disgrace. I did email Melissa Australia to get replacement
bows and I was told they SELL the shoes, not MAKE them, hence
don't have "spare parts" - how odd is that? So I bought some grossgrain
ribbon from Spotlight today and got to with with a needle and
thread, and a bit of fabric glue. I'm super happy with the results.
