UPCYCLING: I TRANSFORMED MY VINTAGE BAG INSPIRED BY BALMAIN

Hello loves! I hope you’re good. This week I transformed one of my favorite blazers into a new one, inspired by one of my favorite Balmain collections. Here’s  the whole process!

You have probably heard about the term upcycling, which is basically how to create new garments from vintage pieces or clothes that have been in your closet for several years.

Well that’s what I tried to do this weekend with one of my vintage bags that I bought more than three years ago on a trip.

This houndstooth jacket I bought years ago had a very traditional cut, so I transformed it using a black denim skirt that I had in my closet, inspired by the Balmain Fall 2019 collection, I share the video of the process!

What do you think of the result?

Kisses,
