Four Ways - Flower Clip




This is just a little mini-four-ways post I thought of today as I was getting dressed. I swear I've worn these little flower clips some way or another everyday since I got them. As a matter of fact, they're in my hair right now! Some days they decorate my favorite hat, giving it a little extra touch of summer. Other days I've clipped them to my vest or the straps on a tank top as a brooch. They've even been clipped to a pair of peep toe shoes. I'd really love another pair in pink or red or maybe cream. I haven't made it out to the craft store yet but it is certainly on my list of things to do.

Very clever how you added them to the shoes. It adds a really colorful touch to otherwise simple black tstraps.

on the shoes? GENIUS!

I used to hate flower clips, but you make them look very wearable and chic!

bitna said...

the shoes are definitely the cutest :)

can you tell me where are your sunglasses from? my friend wanted a pair of balenciagas that look very similar to the ones you're wearing but they're $$$

The shoes are gorgeous...I'd pay $$$ for them in a flash, who would've thought the flowers were clipped on. You are a genius!

I love it! I recently made some flower headbands on super-thin silk ribbons, and love the idea of being able to clip them onto things too. I might even try to make my own silk flowers.
Oh and I love those shoes, too!

I really love fabric flower clips. I'm currently obsessed with poppies, like these ones:

Thanks for all of your comments!

Bitna: The sunglasses are vintage Raybans that I bought at a second hand store.

AlicePleasance: Thanks for the link. Those poppies are so cute.

I never would have thought to add them to shoes! You are so clever.
Are those from H&M?

Sally Jane said...

Vintage Vinyl: Thanks! Yes, they are from H&M.

Isabel said...

Damn, those are versatile!

particularly love the shoe idea, very clever! and the hat is a neat way of thinking.

thank you for your comment on my blog: i feel the same as you do about Mooka Kinney's recent collections, and was more than delighted to pick up my Maeby dress for 50% off from Bona Drag online! My sweetest recent wardrobe addition.

Lovely blog.

Good Lookin said...

Haha, that's cool how you wear it so many different ways, I'm going to start doing that now because I have flower clips too!

Meemo said...

Love the flower clips on the shoes. I do that with clunky clip-on earrings that I find in thrift stores to give otherwise plain shoes a boost.
