Zip It

The exposed zipper is one of THE trends for fall. From runways and editorials, the look has now trickled down to high street retailers. I'm a huge fan of the look, but let's just hope it doesn't become as ubiquitous as the dress that won't die. YSL, once again, served as my inspiration for creating this edgy accessory with an unexpected ruffle.
What You'll Need:
Vintage clutch
Hot glue gun

Six 22" zippers


Cut each of the six zippers in half. Make sure the zippers run the front length of the bag, and bend around the corner too. Starting at the bottom of the bag, glue the fabric above the zipper to the bag. Work your way up, row by row, until you reach the top of the bag.

There you have it! Your very own rocker accessory. Too bad there are 12 zippers on the thing, but still nowhere to store the massive amounts of junk I lug around with me!
