If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that we love DIY projects. We partnered with the super-talented Jenni Radosevich from I Spy DIY to customize our Thick Strap Sandal with neon gems for a perfect, one-of-a-kind summer shoe.
Growing up in Wisconsin, Jenni Radosevich was always creating her own style. If she saw something in a magazine that she couldn’t find in her local department store, she would make it herself. Now living in New York, her affinity to “spot style you love, and do-it-yourself” has manifested itself into a website: ISpyDIY.com and book, I Spy DIY Style, which has been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, Rachel Ray Show, CNN.com, The Today Show, Wall Street Journal and InStyle magazine.
