Having an overfilled closet and some serious high payments that need to be done on my student loans plus my recent broken car for the next half year, I came up with the idea of starting a series "oldies but goodies". Remixing older clothes that has been in my wardrobe for several years and maybe decades that still can be trendy :-)
Sometimes I have the feeling that bloggers are fighting to be the very first one to show off the latest trends or newest articles that were brought out. That might be appealing to those one who have a pretty big budget and no financial duties but for somebody as me who has to pay off stuff it's not possible. I want to encourage my lovely readers to be creative and rethink styling possiblities with some oldies. That is not only a fun challenge but your bank account will highly appreciate it ;-)
What I love about fall is LAYERING and pulling off my looks with opaque tights, overknee socks and boots. Digging out my 3 year old plaid skirt is my loyal signifcant companion during the fall/winter season and that every year. Checked pattern are absolutely timeless and can be combined with a variety of different colours. I picked up the colour palette that is used in my skirt and build my look around these colours. The hat and the ruffles on my blouse give it a fun and playful and vintage touch...
How do you like to deal with older items? Do you consider them to rewear them over the years or clear your clothes out every season?
PS: In the next days I will ask some of my blogger friends to participate in that series, I will link them on my blog and that will be so much fun. So stay tune or let me know who wants to participate. I will contact you then :-)
