In the words of Natalie Imbruglia…
Or maybe I’m a little less Torn and a bit more SHREDDING????
I’ve shredded clothes before, but doing it by hand takes a lot of time and patience…2 things I don’t have.
(specifically the “patience” part)
Although for those of you interested, this video taught me how to shred back in ’08.
So for this dress, I turned to Etsy, or as I like to call it, “My online sweatshop.”
But word to the wise……
SHREDDED CLOTHES ARE NOT PARTY CLOTHES!
I made the mistake of wearing it out this weekend and totally trashed it!!!!
I didn’t even do anything crazy. I just walked (got caught on my shoe zippers), talked to people (got caught on other people), and ate dinner (got caught on the table, the chair, my bracelet, the bathroom door and my friend).
Pre-party it dragged on the floor.
Post-party I look like I’ve been shipwrecked.
Torn clothes are works of art.
You know that saying where one person’s trash is another person’s treasure?
Well this dress is now the opposite.
