Snaking Along the Concrete Jungle


Snakeskin knit dress ($1.00 for 2yds from Virgo Fabrics, Bklyn, NY remnant box) with my new cranberry patent leather shoes (Anne Klein $60 from DSW Shoe Outlet) and new grey handbag  (Certified Vegan hanbag by UE which uses recycled candy wrappers, food packages, soda labels, and other recycled materials to make handbags - $40 from Daffy's).

Thank You for the Beautiful Compliments.

@b4thedoor: I took apart a rtw dress that had seen better days and used it as a template.

At Virgo fabrics (Bklyn, NY), there is a remnant box $1.00/yd and the snakeskin fabric called to me...lol. When I extracted it from the mangled mess of twisted fabrics, one of the selvedge edges was a serrated mess and stated to the sales clerk that the 2 yards should be only a $1.00 surprisingly he agreed.
