Reworking MY shirt

This is my blouse.

No I mean it. It’s MINE!! 

This is the called the ‘Rea’ blouse and was designed for me by a friend of mine who works at Hobbs.  I opened the post one morning and found this lush, teal, silk blouse gifted to me with a wee note from my generous buddy.  How lush is that?  Apparently we’d had sunday lunch together one weekend  and I was wearing something that inspired him to design this with me in mind.  It has been lovingly worn for many a year but has started to show signs of decay.(Washing machine…Ooopps!)  Wanting to give it a new lease of life I decided to rework it by cutting the sleeves off, my new favourite shape.

I love how it’s a feminine, classy blouse but is now toughened up by losing the arms and letting it fray.

I teamed it with my new favourite skirt that cost a mere 16p!!  Same shop in Hong Kong where I got this beauty.

The moral of this post is you should never give up on things….NEVER!! I love this blouse (and of course the sentiment behind it) but felt it was too prim and proper for me these days…it needed a new look and you know that if there’s a pair of scissors nearby….I’m there….snip snip..
