When it comes to fashion, Sharpie is a girl’s best friend. But hey, why take my word for it when you can turn to a trusted and respected source like Rachel Sutherland. Rachel is the style editor for the Charlotte Observer and she writes the blog If The Shoe Fits. Rachel recently wrote a post titled Sharpie Love where she calls Sharpie “the patron saint of shoe longevity.”
Her story starts with the sad demise of her Dansko clogs (Danish shoes with a horse history. Check out their funny-geeky story here). Rachel admits even a stiletto girl needs an occasional break from the high altitudes, but when her beloved Dansko’s started to reach the end of their shoe life, Rachel devised a quick rehab scheme, buying up a slew of Sharpies in a variety of brown-ish shades. Well, dear readers, the story ends with a lot of Sharpie love in the shoe closet. See the “wild” outcome below.
