The Normaluisa 2012 summer/spring collection is where I first spotted these chain straps. Models strutted down the runway with platform shoes and chunky chain anklets. A clever trick to give an illusion of a chain strap. This genius idea gives you chance to pair the anklets with multiple shoes! This DIY may be a year late but late is better than never! Right?
Check out the tutorial below!
