OOTD: On restyling old pieces


 Dress - Topshop, Jumper - New Look - £20, Shoes - TK Maxx - £15, Bag - Topshop - £25, Glasses - Glasses Direct - 2 for £60

I don't know about you but I frequently have romances with certain pieces (wanky way of saying clothes, sorry guys) in my wardrobe. This american flag jumper from the teen section in New Look was/is one of them. When I first bought it a couple of months ago I wore it literally all the time. I love a big chunky knit and I loved that the red was more of a burgundy.

I've recently had this whole "hate everything I own but no money to buy anything new" phase (I say recently, it's been going for a while) so I've been trying to revitalise bits in my wardrobe. I've literally purged the fuck out my wardrobe recently (giving some bits and bobs to the sisterling, selling some at fairs) leaving me with some basics and only things that I love/need to wear to justify keeping. The dress I bought earlier in the Summer and haven't worn it that much but it's actually quite sweet and a nice thing to pull on for a wee effortless doss about town. Coupled with my flatforms (my alt to living in a chelsea boot) it's comfortable and cosy and means I actually wear the clothes I own.
That said - it's probarly about time I invest in some new tights. Do I actually own a pair that doesn't have some sort of rip in them?

Just so you know, I'll be selling hunners of my clothes tomorrow at Granny Would Be Proud 12-5 at Hillhead Bookclub. Loads of dresses and the like HUNNERS £5 and under, so if you're looking for something a wee bit fancy and want to support me in my new tights fund (or just pop down for a chat and some hot cider) would be great to see you.

I'm thinking Dolly for today's Christmas song? Yes?

Have you entered my giveaway to win a Saunt and Sinner scarf worth £180?

  4. this outfit is cute! I can relate with how you felt, I get those moments with my closet too even when I have enough pieces. I feel bad sometimes when I wear a certain item continuously because its new and I love it, and then months later I completely forget about it. >.< getting new tights sound like a good idea! :D

  6. I have days like that so often! And I feel really guilty because they'd scoff they'd be bursting out of my wardrobe. Le sigh. I'd give anything for those shoes though, they're really unusual (in a good way obvz)! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

    1. Thanks! Seriously TK Maxx is still one of my fave places to find quirky wee pieces, and to think at the time I debated about if I should get them or not. Clearly well loved! x

  7. I have the same relationship with my clothes. I think it started in my early childhood when I developed a habit of wearing something I really loved for ages.
