Imaginative Accessorizing

It’s not easy to keep up with the cost of fashion. Designer clothes, matching handbags, the shoes needed to go with every outfit. And don’t forget the earrings, bracelets, necklaces, sunglasses, hair clips, handbag charms, toe rings…. It all adds up.

But you could save yourself some money by being a bit creative. Bold prints of flowers and sparkly designs are headlining our clothes shops, so why not go a step further and attach a beautiful flower corsage. Or take out your favourite old skirt and give it a new lease of life. Swirling hemline designs simply stitched in place give a fantastic bold statement.

An everyday handbag can be glammed up for the summer with a daisy chain of linked flowers round the top, or a big sun flower pinned on the front. You could even go as far as attaching smaller sun flowers to your flip-flops and sandals to brighten them up for an afternoon’s BBQ.

Silk flowers are a fantastic way to give your outfit the girly edge without having to spend a fortune. Put a big pink silk rose on a hairband and use it as a bracelet. Tie tiny silk flowers to the belt loops of your three quarters and team it with a camisole top. Or go for the prairie princess look with a garland of yellow flowers for your hair.

So don’t spend a fortune, use some imagination, and then smile prettily as the compliments start pouring in.
