This Just In!
We have a section of vintage clothing that is called Creative Vintage. For those who do not know, we up-cycle some of our items. Quite frequently, I will come across an item that is just fabulous, but has been ruined and is not wearable. This is where I can become a vintage handy-person and play fashion designer for a little bit. Sometimes the results are quite stunning - if I do say so myself!
This is a Miss Balmain dress from the 1980s. It had a huge rip in the skirt near the angled hem and for the longest time I could not figure out what to do with it. In a moment of inspiration, I added this stunning black and sequined wide trim to it. Voilà. This great dress is completely wearable once more and not in our landfills. That felt good.
My friend Rita helps me out as well. She is a much more accomplished tailor than I and can create entire outfits from scratch (whereas I can only make alterations). That is a talent I would love to have! Here are a few of her creations.

Wishing you all a wonderful Friday.
