A year or two ago I was really into the Ralph Lauren Polo's and I got this hot pink one (which I wore to an unbelievable extent), but now that I have grown a fair amount and expanded my fashion palette, I decided that I didn't like my Hot Pink Ralph Lauren sweater much anymore.
As soon as I was going to put it into the giveaway bag, I said "hmm," maybe I could do something fun with this. Instantly, I jotted down some ideas for the sweater and it all narrowed down to this...
Worn with Abercrombie jeans
Underneath sweater is a Surrealist lace top
My Dad said I look like I had been attacked by acid...thanks Dad.
A view of the back
Sometimes I think people might think I am goth (ripping up and shredding my clothes) if I were to wear it but then again it is a hot pink sweater, so never mind. Honestly, it didn't take me very long, all I needed was a thread puller, scissors and three hours straight to work on it. I've never done anything like this - distressing a sweater before I mean, so it was basically all an experiment, but hopefully it will be of more use to me now. My next project will consist of a black floor length dress that will become a floor length skirt instead. That project will consist of a bit more work but we can only wait and see what the final product will be like. Look out for a post coming soon on that project.
Have a happy new year everyone, and hopefully we can all stick to our resolutions for the year (I am always bad at that)!
