Pinning Inspiration #17

Last week's Pinning Inspiration looked at reading nooks. This week, how about something to wear when you're chilling out with that book? The theme is customised clothes!

Some of the pins this week are from ready to wear designer lines--but offer plenty of inspiration for DIY customisation!

A fake fur collar added to a blazer can create a completely different image.
Lots of winter coats seem to come with detachable fake fur collars now, so if you've got one lurking around, this is an easy way to change the look of another jacket.

Got a few unwanted scarves...?

I love a good embellished shoulder!

I created my own (removable) shoulder embellishments a while ago using a heap of buttons and some shoulder pads.
The tutorial is here.

And let's not forget accessories, for every girl needs a handbag!

Not for the faint-hearted, but as the comment says, it is damn awesome.

Dolce & Gabbana's tapestry-style might come ready made, but a similar effect could come of applying a thrift-store tapestry piece to a mesh top (or painstakingly embroidering it all yourself...)

Do you like to customise your clothes, or do you prefer to leave them as is?
Does this post inspire you to update something old, and do a little stash-busting in the process?
