Bejeweled a sheer Cardigan/throw. Before and After
Spring 2010 (Disregard the work credentials and attire. Booo)
Spring 2010. After work Grey & Black color palette
Our love affair began to flourish and then with a simple stroke of maintenance I decided to wash her---At no point did I think a separate, solo, delicate bubble bath would be the only thing that she needed; so I threw her in the wash with all the other common pieces---and no looking back.
It's now fall, she is packed up and displaced for 6 months and moved away from any chicness known As Ms. LeBlanc. Out of sight, Out of mind.
Fast forward to settling into a new apartment and unpacking all of the "whatever happened to..." pieces. A reignited love affair between myself and Miss. Rose Pink Sheer Throw began. But she looks a little different now, a little battered and bruised; and as I looked closely I noticed the worse thing in the world: Moth like to Dime like sized holes riddled through every corner of Miss Rose Pink.
My heart sank, was it the tumble cycle of the washing machine, the 6 months in a dark suitcase, my neglect?? Answers. now! but then I realized that when it comes to fashion and style, there are no time for answers. Only solutions and new looks.
So time to think fast----simple because, I was not ready to part with Miss Rose Pink Sheer Throw. No, no hunni. After I gathered myself and cared nothing for "answers" I immediately began to think fast, relocated to my "box of tricks"---aka CRAFTS KIT ---and figured out what could replace these moth sized holes....JEWELS and SEQUINS of course!
Here is the end result after fetching my needle, thread and magna-tact fabric glue. Hmm mmh...don't mess with a craft queen!
