inspiration: pt. 3

recently i have been looking around at little things that i like in online stores. they inspire me to recreate them at home so i can save money and get things for my room, wardrobe or anything like that. :)

that's what this post is about. things that i can use/wear in everyday life, and am very tempted to try to recreate. :D

i got this off of my friend hannah's blog and she got it off of here.  i just love it so much. i reminds me of summer and long nights and no homework... and i could go on and on. :)


this dress is awfully pretty but awfully out of my price range! so i could definitely find a pattern and make one of my own. :) i found it here. 


this is a skirt from the same place that is really cute.


back to posters: wouldn't this one be cool to do with vellum or tissue paper?


a printed card.


one last thing: some screenprinted fabric. this would be neat to buy a whole bunch of cheap little house stamps and make a poster or card with them.


which ones do you like? what is something that you have found that you would like to "recreate?"

I love these things! I especially like the second poster. I saw it through your Etsy feed thingy and I added it to my favorites too. :) Love the colors and the overlapping letters.

And I LOVE Anthropologie stuff. Ahhh yes. It's so expensive. But I stalk their sale section from time to time just in case.

Oh goodness I love those anthropologie clothes! That is the best store ever--I wish it was cheaper. :) But, sometime you get good deals in their stores on the sale racks. Once I got several shirts that were usually $100+ for $10 each. :)

:) :) i like this whole post!
i always see stuff on etsy and clothing stores online that i want to recreate.. man stuff can be sooo expensive!
i agree that using vellum or tissue paper to make that second poster happen would be awesome!

Ooh I love the dress and skirt! I like the patterns and if I could find some cute fabric I would totally make those! but i wouldn't use so many ruffles on the top of the dress. maybe just around the sleeves and neck...not down the front. but very cute! Makes me want spring!
