Get fast fashion or Customize the Old? Dress Smart!

My mother always asks for my opinion on the old pieces she wants to get rid. For most, my reaction is “Don’t!!!!”. Part of fashion is about revisiting the old. Hence, I advise her to keep items that might become trendy again. Or we may just need to customize them a little to give them a fresh twist. Recognize the shoes I am wearing? They are an old Zara model to which I add a DIY fringe shoe tongue. I will show you how in a tutorial video. Next, my Cheap Monday jeans which I got 8 years ago… I make them fashionable again by simply cutting the apparent seam. We may be inveterate fashion consumers, but we can all do with less turnover by dressing smart.
Of late, I have been super inspired with my outfits which I share on Instagram but not all on this blog. Why don’t you also follow me on my Instagram account: @blaastyle
