uber-recycling - Gucci '08 style

The new Gucci line has given me a wealth of ideas for experimenting - especially with vintage Gucci purses. While I love the new '08 Gucci look, so me and so rock n roll, my fave style has rabbit patches all over it. The little creatures might be cute but I don't even drag those images out at Easter - let alone carry them around with me all day long, day after day!

Since my new store, Revolution Malibu is a green lifestyle store ( with a twist ), I thought I could snap up a bunch of those vintage Gucci purses and do my own collage of skull patches and adorn vintage studs. Uber-recycling - as I call it. I'll let you know how it turns out ;)

Oooh, loving this idea!!! I have a slightly beat up vintage Gucci bag that was my Mom's but would be too scared to glue anything on it, I'm sure she'd have a fit from beyond the grave. Great idea for recycling designer pieces for the store!!
