His Love Hangs By Paperclip Threads

One of the countryside's best assets is it's charity shops, bursting with vintage jumpers, chunky jewellery, and a treasure chest of offbeat and unconventional jackets that simply need a little dosage of love and revamping to transform into something edgy. This week I've nestled into the bargain bins, finding a suede Sherlock Holmes style jacket that has an indie mod feel. I also came across a simple draped t-shirt which allowed me to do a touch of DIY to. Paper clips were delicately laced onto the shoulders for a stationery inspired armour. I might make some more of these at a later date, so get in touch if you'd like to purchase one.


  1. Oooh DARLING, I love!
    The paperclips are a fab idea and the suede coat is beautiful xoxox

  2. Well played, sir.

    ... and just in time for the Sherlock Holmes movie.

    The boots also get a seal of approval.

  3. Haha, I forgot that the Sherlock film was coming out so soon Graham! I'll certainly be looking forward to seeing all the tailored and swarv' peacoats though! Hope your well though my stylish friend from over seas!

    And thanks also, Samisoni! Hope your well!
