A penguin suit
In 2019, I discovered Kate Spade makes penguin and flamingo bags. I fell in love with their by the pool series and the Clifton range.
I did not find any of the penguin pieces I wanted that year. In 2020, I lucky got the tote, in 2021, I got the leather clutch bag.
The one I desperately wanted was the crystal covered clutch. This bag was worn by Maisie Williams to an awards show in 2016 and it is a sought after bag. After countless enquiries to various corners of the internet, I could.
Thankfully the damage was just missing crystals everything else was fine!
I sat for just over two hours applying the replacement stones, there were a lot of individual stones missing and then full bald spots.
After several hours and different search terms I found it damaged on eBay. It was in Japan! I was tracking his delivery all weekend.
I ordered the relevant glue and replacement crystals to fix the damage to the bag. I have replaced the missing crystals and given the bag a new lease of life
Now he's as good as new!
