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!
