Wearing my Wardrobe - Cruella ♥

Skirt - ASOS Curve // Shirt* - ASOS Curve // Cardigan* - Very // Shoes - New Look // Necklace* - ASOS // Bag - ASOS // Ring - Lipsy // Bow - New Look

The people over at Most Wanted (the lifestyle magazine from Vouchercodes.co.uk) recently challenged me to "wear your wardrobe", which involved picking out 3 new items to jazz up some of my old barely worn clothes. I'd recently had a clearout/eBay sale, so most of my clothes are ones I wear fairly regularly, but I picked out a skirt I hadn't worn since last October for the challenge.

The items we bought had to come £80 or under, so I picked out a dalmatian print cardi (£27, a raccoon print shirt (£35) & a diamante necklace (£15). Now I didn't have to wear them all in one outfit, but I think they went pretty well together, so I also added a bag & shoes I hadn't worn/used in forever to complete my look.
I did take some pics of other outfit combos as well (seeing as I probably won't get a chance to post another outfit for a while & I'm supposed to be showing all the ways the new things can bring my old things to life!), combining some more of my barely worn/never worn items with the new things. How lovely is this (handmade) feather skirt? I've never worn it, it's a bit uncomfortable, & very impractical, but it would look super nice paired with my new cardigan & necklace. Or in the outfit below, my Evans frilly dress that I've only worn twice, paired with the raccoon shirt.

I can definitely see these 3 things renewing my wardrobe, having to buy things with this in mind definitely made me think about what I chose more. Normally I just buy things & co-ord them later, but this can lead to unworn items, which is such a waste!

  5. Your outfits are always amazing, but this one has to be one of my favorites. I especially love the detail with the necklace peeking through under the collar, and you manage to make the black still look very sweet and "you"!

    The other outfits are beautiful as well, I think I have to look into finding a feather skirt now :)

  11. I've recently been looking for some more business cas. shirts to wear to work with all the stuff I already have, and I immediately fell in love with this raccoon shirt. I'm so glad to see a couple of examples of it looking fabulous. It makes me want to purchase it even more!

  12. I always buy things and then find I don't have anything to wear them with! I might try taking on your new attitude to buying clothes too.

  17. Very good point! When I was younger I just bought things I liked, and I would never work it any new way or I would just stop wearing it. So now I always try to think before I buy, and if I have old clothes I don't wear I try to think about what I could do to re-vamp them up so I would wear it more often.

  30. hello! i have been following your blog for a while and would love to nominate you for the versatile blogger award. not sure if you accept things like this (it's sort of a different style than your blog), so if you don't feel like following the rules that's okay. i just want to note that i am a big fan and hope to see your blog continue for a long time.

    if you would like to see my nomination post, it's here: http://captainsharmie.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/the-versatile-blogger-award/

  37. I'm very partial to this outfit, but that's probably because I wear a lot of black... hehe! That racoon shirt is soooo cute!!! I need one for myself!

  38. Great outfits , you look fabulous ! Love the hair too. I read about fat fashion blogger in the daily mail and found this blog when i googled. Ive been feeling a bit down as i find it hard to get fashionable /funky / sexy /quirky clothes in my size ( uk 18-20) . I love the vintage/retro but its all usually teeny tiny sizes. You have inspired me , i need to sort out a paypal acc and start shopping online instead of trawling the shops full of nice things that only go up to a 16. Keep up the good work.
