D.I.M.D.I: From 90’s to teens

Every time I looked at this BCBG Maxazria leather skirt I saw the 90’s flash before my eyes. I saw Victoria Adams {As she was then!} wearing it with buffalo boots, a halter top and cropped spikey hair. I just couldn’t go there. I tried to Ebay it but there were no takers and I foolishly put it in the Chazzer Shazzer pile. I can’t remember what it was exactly that sent a lightening bolt straight through my forehead and made me want to lob the bottom off but I decided to do it myself, Β didn’t I and that’s what I’ve done!

Due to the fact that there was no one else in the house when I started cutting I needed to find a reliable method of measuring exactly where I wanted to make the first incision. I went for a folded A4 envelope that was within arms reach. Professional & faff free. Winner.

The great thing about leather is that it’s so smooth and easy to cut AND it doesn’t fray. There is a small lining at the top of the skirt but where I was chopping was simply pure animal hide and was super easy to cut. Not wanting to go even further back in the decades I decided against a short leather mini and opted for my most flattering length ~ just below the knee. From ’93 to 2013 in the snip of a pair of scissors.
