Hello my lovelies! This outfit features a real blast from the past! I’d seen others doing a “shop my closet” thing for ages and not really taken much notice. I don’t tend to be very sentimental with things, and when items are taken to a charity shop or put in storage, I don’t miss them. When a few weeks ago I got out a massive box of old clothes for a jumble sale I was doing, though, I found so many things that are years of being banished from my wardrobe felt like they could fit in once again, so I embraced them like old friends! (After cleaning and ironing them, of course.)
I really love this top. I still miss the Seven range Evans used to do. They had such cute stuff. This top was a bit 60’s and made me feel like I’m a member of the Jetsons!
The brooch was one I’d loved from afar for years on the Tatty Devine website but had given up hopes of ever owning, so when I found it buried under a mountain of other bits in the shop’s sample sale, I nearly screamed! I love it so much, it’s big, kitsch and music based. It’s everything I want in a brooch, haha. I’m such a huge fan of Tatty Devine – I know people say their items are expensive, but when it comes to indie designers I do understand a higher price point, even when I’m priced out of most things. I usually stay patient and wait for the sales. I’ve had my oldest TD stuff for over 5 years and they’re as good as new, so I feel like it’s always worth an investment.
Phew! Sorry, I do go on don’t I? Expect a few more outfits posts with things I’d long forgotten I owned all summer… Until next time (my plus size Game of Thrones fashion post! AWW YEAH.)
