outskirts.

vintage leather top, madewell 1937 skirt and sandals, see by chloe bag, kaza bangle and mongkok earrings.

Had a hectic few days since I got back to Hong Kong hence the lack of posts, but here's one from when I was still back in California. I think I was on my way to get some deliciously unhealthy Jack in the Box milkshakes with my sister when we passed by this patch of dirt/barren desert landscape.
This leather top actually used to be a long-sleeved, mock turtleneck, no surprise it was from the early 90s. But it wasn't very comfortable and it seemed like a waste of perfectly good leather so I had it altered into a sleeveless, mock-turtleneck-less top (because my sewing skills are nowhere near that level). And voilà, a new piece of clothing I can actually move in. For a whole lot less than if I went and purchased a sleeveless leather top.

Did you alter the top yourself?? If so your sewing skills are quite incredible in my opinion. I love your bag. The bow detail on the strap is so cute.

I adore your scalloped bag but nooo it's see by chloe which means it will probably be too expensive for my budget :( but wow, great job on the reconstruction!
