Do you like to wear something different and individual but are on a tight budget? Sometimes you can dress up what you already have with something from your wardrobe, jewelley box or even the kitchen if you think a little outside the square. Other times you may just need to swap something with a friend or make a small outlay, perhaps an op shop buy.



Bag

Some ideas include:
Use a brooch to decorate a plain bag. You can just pin it on or you may be able to remove the pin from the back and super glue the brooch to your bag for a permanent fixture.
Attach a charm to the zip puller of a bag or purse.
Use a serviette ring as a scarf ring.

Perhaps you have a ring you find too bulky to wear on your fingers. Before you give it away, consider using it as a scarf ring.

Swap chains around on your jewellery. Sometimes a longer or shorter chain or one that is thicker or thinner means you get more use from a piece of jewellery. If you don't have what you need already, perhaps a friend has surplus items. You may be able to swap. Alternatively, buy one from a budget store, op shop or garage sale.
Try wearing two necklaces of different lengths at the same time. A common colour or other feature may make it work well, especially when worn with a plain top. (You want this to look like you planned it, not that you forgot you already had a necklace on.)
Use some stretch fabric to plait a 'chain' for a bulky pendant.

The plaited 'chain' can be easily slipped over the head and was created from scrap stretch fabric that coordinates with a number of items in my wardrobe. Other 'chains' could easily be made in a variety of colours. Image by Marie Vonow

Often you can dress up your wardrobe by repurposing something, swapping things around or by trying different combinations.
