Before you think I invested thousands of euros in a new Dior piece I can reassure you that I only scored a nice little clutch at a second-hand shop in Antwerp for 20€ 😉 I became quite good at bumping into vintage treasures lately! A few years ago I probably wouldn’t even have done the effort. After that smelly “Ich bin einde Nordzeekrabe” T-shirt I decided never to wear pre-owned clothes again but luckily I got over that trauma.
The thing with fashion for me is (and some bloggers tend to forget this) that it’s all about creating your own personal style and not becoming a brand or even worse chainstore bible. You see something here, buy something there, bump into something at another place and before you realize you made a great combo. And than the creative part only begins, how to mix and match this with different styles from your wardrobe… This proces actually captivates me most (besides the writing part): going on a creative hunt and compose something you really like.
I must admit that I’ve been kind addicted to my vintage Levi’s 501 lately… next time I’ll try to do something with a skirt 😉
