Somewhere I never have known,Wednesday, March 19, 2014
After a lovely pancake day I came up with a few ideas with what to give up for lent. After failing at many (In only a day in…) my final attempt is to stop buying full price clothes (discount counts right?)
The idea of this started off really well(better than I ever thought). I've always loved making garments or reworking pieces into something new. Recently I had a look in a few local charity shops, only for a nosey but ended up leaving with a few gems…
Firstly, this tapestry-esque zip up coat(And it actually fits!) I could not stop looking at it in the shop, I think at first I only brought it so I could continue looking at it for longer. It is definitely an unusual length for me and I'm not a huge fan of it being zipped up, but I really love the fabric! It looks great teamed with a furry scarf, I may make some alterations but for now I'm happy I brought it(And it looks fabulous on Barnabas the cat).
I also brought a basic white knit vest from another charity shop. I love monochrome so this is a really cute piece to layer and build outfits with. It is slightly big but I think it will work great for layering.
