Pics as promised of LV/other items I've tweaked ;)

  1. Hi!

    The other day we had a thread about altering designer items to better suit you. I admitted I had done so to several LV and other designer items. I included them as well bc I am an equal opportunity bag tweaker...:p

    First is my trotteur. The strap was too long, and I wanted it to fit comfortably under my shoulder. I went to my friendly neighborhood shoe/leather repair shop and the nice lady helped me measure the correct length and she cut and re-stitched it for me. I attached it with extenders.

    Next is a Mini Mono anne sophie clutch. I wanted a strap to use it for evenings out. Usually when I'm on a bag tweaking mission, I look for belts or cheap leather bags to use for the straps. I have good luck at Marshalls, TJMaxx and Target. Found this strap from a small leather bag in the exact shade of burgundy to match.

    Next up (to keep all the LVs together) is my lexington with a necklace used as a strap.

    Next is a MJ clutch I wanted as a wristlet. The chain is a belt and I used a pliers to shorten it and then reattched the hooks. I clipped them to the zipper pulls.

  2. OK, I just love the lexington with that necklace!!!
     
  3. WOW!! i :heart: the trotteur!!!
     
  4. Crap. Sorry. I have one more.
    A cute Fendi clutch. I looked all over for something for this one, and BF suggested leather eyeglass straps. Went in and these were too thin, so I braided them and then shoemaker lady friend attached them.
