Alterations: Good or Bad?

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

One year ago, I wore this jacket in one of my personal style posts. At the time, the jacket was Victoria's, who, a few weeks after I had worn it decided that she hated the furry collar. She concluded that the jacket would look way better without it. Victoria's afternoon of clothes-alteration-enlightenment ended with her visiting a nearby (and relatively dodgy) alterations shop, coincidentally named "Vic's". When she brought the jacket back from the shop I was devastated: not only had the jacket lost its weird charm, I pointed out that it was going to be absolutely useless during Oxford's cold winter. Without the furry collar, the winter winds would hit us (cause I wore it all the time too) straight in the chest. Afterwards, Victoria decided she didn't want the jacket anymore, and I decided to keep - it looks (sort of) OK if I leave it unbuttoned.This is the perfect example of an alteration gone wrong. Have you altered something and then regretted it? My look: River Island altered jacket, Promod skirt and a PAAR triangle ring, available here.
Hace un año, me puse esta chamarra en uno de mis posts de personal style. En ese entonces, la chamarra era de Victoria, que, pocas semanas después de que yo la había usado decidió que odiaba el cuello peludo y que la chamarra se vería mucho mejor sin él. En una tarde de inspiración, Victoria decidió llevar la chamarra a una tienda de alteraciones bastante dudosa que, por cierto, se llamaba "Vic's". Cuando Victoria regresó con la chamarra casi me pongo a llorar: no solo la chamarra había perdido toda la onda, si no que además no iba a servirnos de nada durante el invierno. Sin el cuello peludo, los vientos helados del invierno nos iban a pegar directo. Minutos después Victoria decidió que ya no quería la chamarra y yo, parte por amor y parte por coraje, decidí quedármela - se ve (mas o menos) bien si me la pongo desabrochada. Este es el ejemplo perfecto de porqué NO se le deben hacer alteraciones a la ropa. ¿Te ha pasado? Look: chamarra (alterada) de River Island, falda negra de Promod y un anillo de triángulo de PAAR, disponible aquí.
