Searching across Etsy, Modcloth, and the like, I've found some products that inspired me. Now, most of these gave me ideas for similar items, but with a gentle tweak from the original.
This purse from Modcloth. It could be made out of tweed with the front detailing done in a more delicate ribbon. For the zipper pull, I was thinking of this broken earring I have from the 1980s that's kind of like an abstract butterfly...
Again from Modcloth. Really simple, just make cute little bows out of any color ribbon and sew or super glue them onto a pair of plain fake lashes. Maybe in a cute shade of sky blue. Hmm.
From Topshop. Really really simple, just use a bangle bracelet instead and use various colors of embroidery thread to thread-wrap it. Then add a jump ring and an earring hook.
There are a lot of lacy socks that I looked at, but I believe this pair was either found on Forever 21's website or Modcloth's.
Alright, this one would take forever, and I need to buy a plain white spaghetti strap tank top before I can (or any plain color spaghetti strap top). After that it's just time-consuming sewing by hand, sewing on tiny chiffon or tulle or organza circles.
This top is around 72 dollars, if bought from Topshop, where I found it.
This is another Modcloth bag. Cute, isn't it?
The bag in the picture was one that I fell in love with at Modcloth's website.
I hope that these things inspired you as much as they did to me.
This is only the tip of my bag of tricks, and as soon as I find the time to complete these projects, rest assured, I will post them.
