The Shredder






Well, it's finished! After three days of madly shredding away at this beautiful cardigan I finally got the look I wanted. I must credit the inspiration to She's Dressing Up who posted the picture (below) of a Rick Owens shredded cardi months ago that's been haunting me ever since. The main trouble for not getting this started earlier was that I couldn't find a drapy cardigan I was truly satisfied with. After looking through the racks at Forever 21, Wet Seal, Urban Outfitters, The Goodwill, anywhere I could think of, I finally found one on accident at Target. I met my match! I chalked onto the sweater before-hand where I wanted my panels and I used the shredding tactic Camille posted to get that drapy, unraveled look. Today I paired the cardi with all nude tones so that it would especially stand out. Together I think it looks a little like M.M. Margiela :)

I wouldn't say the underneath of this outfit is the most flattering, but that cardigan is one BAMF, if I do say so myself. How does one "shred?" I tried once.. failed. Couldn't figure out how to do it...

and thank you for the comment deary :)

We should definitely trade links. You're already up on mine.

blessings as always,
Alice

I'm glad you didn't take it the wrong way. Cause girl, we've ALL got to be careful with super tight things... cause most of us aren't actually microscopic Kate Moss look-alikes.
