Duck re-purposed

Duck re-purposed
I’m famous for re-purposing so needless to say I never throw out clothing which explains why I still have items from high school sitting in my closet.  My thought is you can always re-create something out of something.

When I purchased this dress originally I thought how interesting it was but once I put it on I literally looked like a figure skating bird.  I loved the detail so much I couldn’t bring myself to return it so it sat in my closet for a while until I was rummaging through drawers looking for a tank and decided to put my scissors  to use.

Top-Dress turned into a top- French Connection
Skirt- DIY also worn here
Heels- Giuesppe Zanotti for Vionnet
Clutch- Fendi

    Great idea, I love the dress too not sure if I would have been brave enough to cut it though.

    This is too funny to me everything you repurpose I love in it's original form ie fur caplet…but that just testifies to your impeccable taste in style/fashion –

    While I don't think you could ever look like a skating duck in anything, I think this transformation is many times better than the original. Great success and major inspiration.
