Actually wanted to share that one for ages. I get this vintage piece on a flea market in Austria – loving the teddies in gold! I’m wearing it with sporty & business items, ideally jogging pants and one boyfriend blazer. But it has to be said: the bag lived several lives already!.

This is why the material on the edge started to fall apart, so I looked for a way to ‘fix’ it.

After diverse experiments, the best way might be nail polish. Doing it every time it needs some more black. And it works pretty good for now one year!

Do you have any thoughts or experiments for making items last longer? Share them, would love to hear of it.

Repost from 2012: in Vienna, wearing YSL tee and oversized alpaca coat. Still wearing it too. By the way, one month left until the Fashion Revolution Week in Zurich! Looking forward.
