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 !
