My dress “needs something”: Embellishments to die for

12 Apr

Have you found “the dress” but want to rip off and replace bits you’re not a fan of?

Today’s round up of beautiful embellishments can be used for most of your accessory needs: shoe slips, brooches, dress add-ons, hair pieces and more.

If you’re feeling particularly clever, check out our DIY links at the end.

Designer of the Week: Lo Boheme

Lo Boheme’s exquisite collection of vintage-inspired accessories are as versatile as they are gorgeous. I love the rhinestone + lace pieces.


So you really want to complete a D-I-Y project, but you don’t know how? Doing-it-yourself gives you a chance to incorporate objects that are special to you such as your mother’s favourite brooch or rosary beads.

Jewel Box Ballerina have created some great tutorials to guide you through a number of D-I-Y projects. They even have some free tutorials for alternative bouquets, shoe clips, fabric flowers, feather pens and brooch pins.

Style Me Pretty also have links to some lovely D-I-Y projects.

The Writing’s on the Wall

“A proper collection of quotations is the whole world digested” – Terri Guillemets

I love quotes. They package years of experience, lessons learnt, words to live by in a single sentence.

We tweet them, we text them, we post them on Facebook so why not (temporarily and removably) plaster them all over our walls?

I found these great slices of genius on Etsy today on sale through decorexpressions.

You can design your own and order your own favourites at Vinyl Letter Decor!

What is your favourite quote of all time?
