Re-Work It

I am loving the "reworked" clothing over at Red Velvet Art. I read a great interview with the shop owner over at The Rockstar Diaries recently and now I'm certain I must get a piece from the shop.



The idea of "re-working" vintage pieces is something any avid vintage shopper is privy too.  Often times a vintage dress would be just perfect if it was hemmed, the sleeves cut, or a the collar was different.  Well, this shop takes all of the guess work out for you by bringing vintage pieces into the modern age.  Perfect.

Wow, those things are all so beautiful!! I love "re-working" old vintage, and just adding trimmings or shortening things slightly does make all the difference!
