Its time to change

The mood to customise has hit me once again - I think this happens with the arrival of spring :-)

My intended victims are.......

A long tie-dye crinkley skirt which I bought from the Oxfam online shop for £8 which I plan to turn into a strapless dress with very little work, just pulling it up above the bust and wearing with a thick belt (inspired by the lovely Nadia from Cupcake Couture who I first saw sporting this look in London).

Then we have THE STUDS.

I can think of about a million things I want to stud with these bad-boys, a hooded top, a pair of jeans, a sweater, mainly though a number of old and tired leather bags that I no longer use (I unearthed a shocking number of these from my cupboards last night whilst looking for my missing favourite jeans, but that is another story......)

Then - something I have wanted to purchase for a very long time is some Pom Pom ribbon trim - this is from the Clothkits website and is the cheapest I have found at £3.50 a metre.
I was thinking of buying a few metres of the bright pink and turquoise and trimming some vintage silk scarves that I thrifted recently.

Ah thanks for the mention. Happy to be of inspiration. Those studs are very cool! I hope you find you jeans soon! x
