Someties, you simply get lucky. I am currently, and ever since the beginning of this year, not buying any more new clothes for myself. All the new clothing you are seeing on here and on Instagram are 99% pr samples for shootings by fashion brands and part of my job as a (fashion-) blogger.
Personally, I’m only buying at second-hand shops these days (and sometimes, very rarely, at my favorite French-chic label Rouje* by Jeanne Damas), because, if you’re lucky, you’ll find the most beautiful pieces at thrift shops.
New old favorites
The initial story of the blouse I’m showing you today is unknown to me, but when I discovered it at a vintage fashion shop in Hanover-Linden, my hometown, I knew it had to come home with me. Initially, we only wanted to look for a light jacket for my mom, but the blouse simply had my name written all over it. You know the feeling, right? So, for a couple of Euros, I bought this cute item and it came with us to Mallorca only a week later, where I wore it nearly all of the time.
A modern, cool look with old pieces? No problem! And super sustainable!
The other items I’m wearing in this look aren’t new, either. The jeans is a couple of years old but simply one of my all-time favorites (and jeans never goes out of fashion, anyway). Also, my Hermès Oran Sandals are seeing their 3rd summer this year and they are still so cool and chic, just like my Gucci sunglasses. And my favorite Rouje bag is also in its 2nd year already. So you can see, these items are all true favorites of mine and more stylish than ever.
I hope this outfit will inspire you to get out your old favourites again, as well, and maybe style them up with a new old second-hand piece. It will make the whole look feel as new and it is also the most sustainable way of dressing.
