Leave it to Vivienne Tam to brilliantly incorporate colorful tribal tassels into her Spring 2011 collection. These similar tassels from Silk Road Tribal were salvaged from vintage Turkoman & Baluchi garments and thanks to Vivienne, I’ve been inspired to add them to a belt or bag. Obsessed!
We were instantly inspired by this gorgeous rainbow fishtail braid in Free People‘s September catalog and decided to recreate it, adding our own little twist: making the braid into a wearable hat accessory. Who said braids were limited to summer and hair?You’ll need:
- a pair of scissors
- some multi-colored yarn
- a hat
A newbie to 1st Dibs, I’m not sure if I should feel disappointed that I didn’t know about this sooner or elated that I now have first dibs on the best selection of vintage accessories I have ever seen. I’m in love with this vintage 80s Hermés watch with the H’s running down the middle of the strap. A vintage Dior turban…I mean, honestly? And we haven’t even started talking about the furniture and clothing yet.
