Reuse & Repurpose: Vested Interests

Veli snapped these images on his last visit to Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, knowing that I'd get a kick out of the way a clever window witch there transformed unlikely objects into wild and wonderful vests. The one in front is dangled together by strands of beads, while the one off to the right composed of women's gloves. What is the one on the left made of, you ask, batting your eyes? (Hint, hint) Strips of false eyelashes!

As we take in the scene from farther back, you can see on the far left a creation designed out of men's gloves, and in front of it, another crafted from a deck of cards. The remaining one on the right, however, still has me tickled and amazed at the same time. It's a wigged-out vest, with the faux hairdos' natural contours forming quite the shoulder pads!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
