Day 353/365

Glasses from Japan, vintage leather hoops, vintage dress from Paul's Mum (given to me over 15 years ago!), Estilo leather belt, Ken Done vest and necklace donated by Ruby and birdmonkey, Ken Done tote (WKBD Collection), Fluevogs.

The joy continues!

Check out this re-purposed-Done ensemble, made by the *supremely talented* birdmonkey and Ruby. Here's the 4-1-1 from birdmonkey herself:

Ruby found a couple of Ken Done items at a garage sale in Canberra, including a set of six place mats, so we decided to turn them into a few things. Ruby made the little bolero jacket and I made the necklace. When Ruby finished we had a little bit of a dress-up 'show and tell' in the studio. Sue and Ally wanted to get in on the act; after all who can refuse a bit of Ken Done dress-ups?!

Ruby wears the bolero with a KD dress bought from a What Ken Be Done eBay sale (if A. Fan still acting on his pledge, that's another $10), and a string of painted gum nuts and beads by the Tangetyerre Artists from central Australia.

As the ladies were posing in Sue's studio (in front on an unfinished drawing), Sue decided she wanted to add some Advanced Style and try on the pieces too!

Thanks to these *great* art ladies for supporting What Ken Be Done? xo x
