Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"Handbags, nail art, hair accessories, jewelry—if you want to home-style your wardrobe, the Fashion Craft Studio series has you covered. This entry invites readers to “think outside the shoebox” by taking those “comfy but boring shoes” from the back of the closet and turning them into attention-grabbing stunners. From casual tennies to ready-for-prom heels to poofy home slippers, Meinking leaves no shoe unstyled. Most notable are the “Flip-Flops That Pop” (which involves knotting deflated balloons around the strap of a flip-flop—it sounds weird but looks pretty darn cool) and “Puddle Jumpers” (using painter’s tape and markers to make tiger stripes on regular old rain boots). Some of the more complicated shoes seem destined to fail, but all of them are attractive and modeled by a teen on each spread. The pictures are bright and helpful, the text clear, and certain words (decoupage, insole, vintage) are defined right on the page. It’s almost guaranteed girls will try some of these." - Booklist
