5 year old skirt


Clothing at Tesco cardigan and belt*
Vintage t-shirt
Charity shop/DIY skirt
George at Asda shoes

Another work outfit. I love this skirt, it's one of my oldest items of clothing. I bought/DIYed it (it's shortened from a very long granny skirt) when I first started getting properly into fashion about 5 years ago, and it's been a favourite ever since. As a 17 year old with very little money to spend on clothes, I used to buy a lot of charity shop pieces and do a lot of DIYs. I may now be an adult with a full-time job, but I think I might go back to my thrifty teenage ways, as I've decided I'm going to try and save as much money as possible. It may sound silly, but I have a plan to buy my own house in (hopefully) four years, so I need to find more affordable ways to manage my fashion addiction!

  3. Hi! I'm a brazilian girl and I'm in London for two months to study on CSM. So I'd like to know some places to buy cheap clothes. I know some markets like Camden, Brick Lane...what about vintage clothes shop?
    Do you recommend something?
    thanks,
    Gabriela

  4. Love this skirt, looking good 5 years on too. Older things tend to be much better quality. I wish I could save, 25 and living with mum haha xx

  7. It's so cool when you find a certain piece in your wardrobe that you know you've been having for years and you still remember its story and all :)
    And I love how you styled the skirt!

  9. I love this outfit, its a lot like what actually wear everyday! I would like to get into doing more DIY again, but its a little difficult at the moment since living with my boyfriend's parents means my sewing machine is at home. I will try to do more though when we eventually move out!

  12. I love your hair, it suits you so much. I've been tempted to go back to my old short hair, and seeing how good it looks now I'm more convinced!
