My personal style is a mash up of glam, vintage style crossed with punk rock/rockabilly. Sometimes I look more one way than the other, all depends on my mood, the occasion etc.
I have recently developed a great love of patches and personalisation. Its.Its great when you find clothing or accessories and can completely transform them with broaches, pins,badges, patches etc. I recently bought a vintage hat and my friend added spikes to it which gives it that perfect combo of glam and rock n roll.
You can get very cute kitsch sweater patches,band patches, military, you name it! I have recently purchased a vintage 1970's tartan holdall which I intend to add patches, badges and possible some mini studs or spikes to. I am currently on the hunt for a denim jacket and waistcoat and a biker jacket too!
There's so much you can do to transform your own wardrobe...
Adding gems/crystals to shoes, bags, clothes
Spikes and Studs
Cutting off sleeves
Adding cute buttons/changing the buttons
Hand made jewellery
Loads of options!
I personally love putting new life into vintage items. Does anyone else love putting their own personal stamp on their wardrobe? I'd love to see what people have done and share ideas!
I personally am looking for cool patches and items I can use to personalise with. Can anyone share any places they would recommend or have any items they would be looking to sell?
