Accessorising a jacket

This harks back to my love of flower corsages a la Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City.

It was a hair elastic, to which I added a clip, so I can wear it on the lapel of a jacket. Stylist Patricia Field started a few trends on that show and this is one of my favourites. It’s such an easy way to take a jacket from blah to brilliant.

Although this jacket is hardly blah. The jacket is from Zara. I had to have it. The colour is enough to lift any one’s spirits.

What is it about green, that makes it such an approachable and cheerful colour?

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
