Tee hee, it’s been quite fun to pull out some of my favourites clothes from years gone by!
Flares! Turtlenecks! It feels like I’m playing dress ups, without feeling like a freak show.
I’ve already featured THREE of my old flare jeans on my blog (in this post) and since then, I have worn them several times… in public!
Hmmm, I don’t think I will be buying any new season flares this season. They are possibly a bit too over the top (and colourful) for me. But if you’re interested, I spotted some flares at Topshop where you can pick up some lace flares, velvet flares, patterned flares, paisley flares or even white crochet flares – wayhey!
For this outfit, I tried to keep everything minimal, casual and subdued. No paisley here!
It really was just an everyday outfit with a tiny bit of fun thrown in.
As for my turtleneck sleeveless sweater (similar here), I bought it about 15 years ago, when I was stocking up on my wardrobe basics. It was around $60 from Sportsgirl, which I think was fairly pricey at the time. Interestingly enough, the fabric has kept very well, it still has a good stretch and the knit is still soft and smooth. I am very happy that it has lasted so long.
Do you keep your favourite old clothes?
I’m a bit of a hoarder and I will never make a good minimalist!
