FANCY THAT

Martha Stewart Weddings - - GOOD THINGS -

If you love a good makeover, you’ll find these ideas es­pe­cially sat­is­fy­ing: With just a glue gun and some fash­ion-for­ward ap­pliqués, you can take plain shoes, clutches, even phone cases, from un­der­stated to OMG. 1. Glam up a gold minaudière ($30, davids­bri­dal.com) and matte satin pill­box clutch in Palomino ($24, dessy.com) with the ad­di­tion of metal bul­lion ap­pliqués and or­na­ments (from $4 each, tin­sel­trad­ing.com). 2. Top a sim­ple stick pin with a gold fleur-de-lis ap­pliqué patch (from $6.75, joycetrim.com), purple flower ap­pliqué ($1.50, 800-719-7133), or se­quin heart ($3 for 2, mjtrim.com) for bou­ton­nieres with panache. 3. For an ac­ces­sory they’re sure to wear again (re­ally!), sched­ule a group DIY ses­sion with your brides­maids and gussy up these jewel-tone “Chelsea” satin bal­let flats ($28, dessy.com) with vi­brant floral ap­pliqués (from $1.50 for sim­i­lar styles, shinetrim.com). 4. Take calls in style by ad­her­ing beaded bul­lion ap­pliqués (from $8 for sim­i­lar styles, mjtrim.com) to a clear phone case ($35, case-mate.com).
