Double or Nothing!
Instagram has kept my shopping hand in and one of my favourite shops of pre-loved goodies had these two pretties available for half-price and so grab them I did!
They both have the distinguishing 70’s feature of a fabulous large pointy collar, with one sporting a large, vibrant, floral print and the other a little more subtle.
I wanted to see how they could be styled differently with the same skirt – just a bit of fun really – and I was happy with the two very different applications. I’d like to know your preference!
I wanted the focal point in both outfits to be the waist because I’ve shifted a couple of the COVID kilos, so opted for a wide red belt in one and a black belt in the other.
Booties are my favourite shoe as we move through winter so it was red and black again, along with black tights and a short leather jacket with the red touches and longer black jacket with the black …
I preferred one of the blouses buttoned right up and the other opened a touch – sometimes it’s just nice to not be so buttoned up!! I added my red leather gloves and red sunnies to my red outfit and I was good to go!!
Second-hand at first!
I know that most people on social media like to show the new things they’ve bought but I just delight in digging through my wardrobe to wear things I’ve had for years and picking up the occasional pre-loved new thing to style in an appealing and attractive way! I just hate the idea of creating more landfill with “fast-fashion” and not making the best use of the lovely things I already have hanging in my wardrobe.
Also what do you think of this guy? When we have people come and stay with us we make scarecrows from a cache of cute outfits I keep, and this was our first creation from some years ago … I found this a funny capture!
Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web and I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
