As you can see, I’m still not over metallics. In the middle of winter, I have found these trousers in a charity shop and thought of a sunny, spring day when I’m going to wear them. The most comfortable trousers they are not, but I love the two-tone metallic finish. I have paired them with a jumper I have bought last year and some pink statement earrings and pink trainers. The bag is rose-gold so in other words kind of pink too.
Well, just like everybody else I’m stuck inside. Not much of a birthday either. But if I was going out I might have possibly had worn this outfit. The jacket is from a charity shop a ‘no-name’ it looks tailor-made and a very good quality bought from sale for very little money. The dress is from a charity shop too. The bag is vintage.
Fashion should be fun. And the colour is not reserved only for summer. When I saw this jumpsuit in a charity shop it screamed to me: summer, but to make the most of your wardrobe it’s good to try to make summer clothes work in different seasons to. This is my attempt to make it work in early spring. The jewel colours are perfect for this time of year. And since I already have plenty of colour why not to throw a bit of sparkle too, for good measures, it’s good not to play it safe sometimes, after all, it’s only clothes.
So who would believe, but charity shops have sales too. Let’s be honest, how much use will I get out of cropped, camouflage trousers? Not that much, but for a £1 I will take the chance. On the other hand, the waistcoat should become staple in my wardrobe and for only £3 that is a bargain. I have done everything in army green and black colours.
Not raining for once so let’s make the most of it and wear the white coat I got last year. I have also got this navy blue cardigan from a charity shop. I love the texture on it, it looks like fish scales. The state of the cardigan was quite appalling, but from experience, I knew that if I trim all of the ‘scales’ slightly, which took about a day while watching some TV, the cardigan will look brand new. I wanted it to be all navy blue and white and comfortable and warm, hence the perennial polo-neck, denim and trainers.
So I have dug up that old relic coat of mine that is very warm (wool+cashmere) slightly old fashioned cut but it’s way too good to get rid off and tried to keep everything in the same tone. The top is from Zara and looks very, Chanel-like plus grey trousers plus brogues, all in my books very relaxed and modern.
What do you wear with a lacy black blouse? Blacktop? – Boring. Whitetop?- Classic. Glitter?- Fabulous! I already have a dress in exactly the same glittery fabric, so when I saw this top in a charity shop for £3 I had to have it. The glitter is going nowhere any time soon. Winter Fashion 2020 is still full of it and I intend to wear it too. I have combined it with also glittery trousers and a black coat. The outfit may be mostly black but thanks to all different textures seem more vibrant.
I have seen this combination of pink and emerald green somewhere and decided to wear it in an outfit. I knew I had a jumper in emerald but nothing else and then I have remembered the peacock earrings that haven’t been out since early 2000, I’m still surprised that they have not disintegrated and they definetely make a statement.
I wanted to wear black trousers with white trainers, so to tie up the whole outfit I have replicated the same colours on the top with a black hooded jumper and a white polo-neck. I have also added a vintage brooch and a black shopper.
Nothing beats a good trainer when you need to do errands all-day. Going with the theme- a sporty top and a polo-neck because it is still cold and a leather jacket because it’s windy and a big shopper to fit everything in. Sorted.
