It’s official. As of November 1st, the issue is on the newsstands. As you probably know, I’m passionate about upcycling. I love taking a thrifted garment and re-designing it, turning it into something special.
Altered Couture magazine celebrates that artistic expression, featuring pieces from artists all over the world. With the encouragement of the amazing Pat Berryhill (her dress is on the cover!), I submitted a lot of my beloved pieces for consideration. As I posted here, it was hard to let my creations go. I actually make them for myself, wearing them continuously, and I miss them. However, the gratification of seeing them featured in such a beautiful magazine makes letting them go worthwhile.
I never imagined that I’d see my creations in print.
It’s time to get back to the drawing board.
Thank you Altered Couture for your support! I’m ready to dive back into my sewing room.
Today’s outfit consisted of : H&M jeans, Nordstrom rack hat, Ikat scarf purchased in the ’80′s, thrifted sleeveless dress worn as coat, upcycled cashmere “armlets”, t-shirt ?, thrifted boots and earrings. But really? It was so warm, I shed the hat and armlets and wished I had flip flops to replace the boots. I survived, but barely.
I’ll be linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style- Visible Monday. See you there.
