Recently seeing (and loving) Black Swan got me interested (again*) in both ballet and feathers. While I can't really imagine a successful combination of ballet and guitar straps, I can think of many ways to use feathers on guitar straps. And fortunately, I just came across this Etsy shop- KIMONOS, which is an amazing resource for them. I'll definitely be buying some of their feathers to add onto new guitar straps in 2011. I can't stop looking at their amazing photography- these pictures look like frame-able works of art.

Vintagey Epaulettes

A long time favorite detail of mine, these epaulettes are pretty cool. The colors, rugged fabrics, and metal buttons are all inspiring for some details on my guitar straps.

Brooklyn Tailors- Sophisticated Plaids & Etsy shop inspiration

Check out these great woven shirts from Brooklyn Tailors. I really love that a design duo in Brooklyn is not only making high-quality, handmade mens (and womens!) shirts and selling them on Etsy, but that they're getting the same press and recognition that is usually only given to bigger companies. Especially in the menswear world. And it's well deserved- their plaids are beautiful, and the sewing quality and fit (slim, modern) are quite obviously top-notch, as evidenced by their photos.
They are another inspiring reminder of how amazing & successful an Etsy shop can be.
