This top was someone’s sweat and tears, not that not all clothes are made this way. This top was hand made by someone and then abandoned and then found by me and quite adored actually. It is that colour blue that suits most people and its cropped, so its perfect for hotter days. I’m wearing it with similar blue jeans and some pink as a statement colour as there is pink in the pattern.
When I got the trousers I was determined to wear them a lot, as the skinny jeans are getting a bit boring now, not that I don’t love them. That would be my typical way to wear them – with something more voluminous on top. This blouse has served me well for a few years now and I still find it current. I wanted the accessories to be all brown and if I can’t find something I will make it as I did the earrings. Heeled boots to give me hight, as the trousers need it, and a vintage bucket bag to complete it all.
It is fun to keep finding new ways to wear the same clothes. This time the culottes worn with a stripy multicoloured, very old vest, but this time with a jade, statement necklace to jazz it up. As there is a blue in the vest I have added a blue bag. And as always the white trainers.
This top used to be a mini dress. This top used to live in my closet as a dress and it has never been worn nor thrown away as it well-tailored. But there comes a time when even clothes hoarder like me needs to make a decision and mine was to turn it to a top. Polka dot is very much in at the moment, so I may as well take advantage of what I already have rather than buy more. A statement necklace to balance the white trousers, the perennial white trainers and silver wristlet for extra something.
