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 was lucky and got the tote, in 2021, I found the leather clutch bag.
The one I I had my heart set on, 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 I found him!
After several hours and different search terms I found it damaged on eBay. It was in Japan! I was tracking his delivery all weekend
He was not in perfect condition. However, thankfully the damage was some missing crystals everything else was fine.
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
I Sat for just over two hours applying the replacement stones, there were a lot of individual stones missing and there were a few bald spots!
Now he's as good as new!
I am happy to present to you Monty!
