What I Wore Goes Vintage Again & Easy 1 Minute DIY Accessories

I recently purchase this asymmetrical flap button vintage 1970s dress from Diaphanous Vintage on Etsy.  I wore it for the first time on Mother's day weekend.  My husband took a few quick pics of me before taking me out for margaritas, I mean lunch ;)

I love playing around with the look of a photo at PicMonkey.

I was really rushed for time getting ready that morning (what's new), and trying to find accessories to complement my new to me vintage dress.  I remembered I had some cute daisy flowers for scrap-booking. I quickly hot glued one to a ring blank, and one to a bobby pin.  I think they look great with my yellow belt and yellow vintage-y beaded necklace (both purchased recently on Ebay).

These DIY accessories only took a minute to make! So that's what I have been buying, making, and wearing.

Do you like to shop vintage?

  1. Cute outfit! You know you're a true crafter when you can pull off some accessories in hurry like that go girl! I'd entertain the thought of what I wore days on my blog...but that would consist of jeans, a hoodie and Nikes...Enjoy your weekend!
