Hi everyone, since so many people requested that I wear last week’s white shirt with skinny jeans or leggings, I thought I’d try out a couple of outfits so you can see how it looks.
Here it is with sequinned leggings.
Here it is with skinny jeans.
As a reminder:
The shirt was originally £5.25 from the British Heart Foundation shop in Whitby: more info on this refashioning project here
The jeans were originally $5.99 from Thrift Town in San Francisco: more info on this refashioning project here
What do you think, do you prefer the skinnies or leggings to my original post with the skirt? Leave a comment below and let me know.
A few announcements: outfit pictures
I’m going to start posting occasional outfit photos again. The idea is that it will enable me to post more frequently, and like with the white shirt above, it’ll give me a chance to restyle some of my makes, since otherwise you only get to see them once. Look out for a few ‘old favourites’ that will be reappearing soon! I will also be featuring second hand finds that I’ve bought that didn’t need refashioning. I want people to see that you can get stylish stuff in charity shops and encourage people to get thrifting! Since a large proportion of my wardrobe is now made up of thrifted finds, I would love to show you all how I wear these items. This was part of my original plan for the blog (check out an early outfit post here), but I got a little sidetracked with all the refasioning. Don’t worry, though; I’ll still be posting regular refashion projects and my primary focus is not going to change.
Interview at So, Zo…
I was interviewed recently by the lovely Zoe for her blog ‘So, Zo, what do you know?’. You can read the interview here. It covers some of my motivations and ambitions and may answer any burning questions you may have! I’d also encourage you to head on over and check out Zoe’s blog as it’s a great source of inspiration for all things to do with sewing, refashioning and dressing sustainably.
The Refashioners Challenge
I’ve been invited to take part in a refashioning challenge, yay! ‘The Refashioners‘ (run by Miss P) is a really great idea which sees bloggers challenged to refashion garments picked for us by Miss P into wearable outfits. I’m thrilled about being part of this challenge already, even though the results won’t be out for a few months yet.
The other bloggers taking part in the challenge are:
