Oh look, it’s that jacket again. I love it, and with this endlessly bloody cold spring we’re experiencing, it’s getting far more wear right now than I anticipated when I thrifted it. I was expecting to put it away for autumn, but I haven’t even seriously considered doing the seasonal change-around (and culling) yet.
Now, to this skirt. I am trying to adapt to the midi trend, and I do keep seeing things I like, but still, when I put one on, most of the time, I feel almost intolerably dowdy. I do like this skirt — or at least I like the print, the fabric, and the way it looks on the hanger — but once on, I don’t like it so much. So it’s going back to the thrift pond, and the fact that it’s just WAY too big in the waist is a help in making the decision, because there’s so much about this skirt I love, and if it fit better, I might’ve had it shortened to just above the knee. It may not be showing in the photo, but there are tasteful sequins and embroidering amongst the print, and that, along with the sheer quality of construction and materials, is what convinced me to give it a go in the first place. It’s not working for me, and it’s going away, but it was a worthy experiment.
Jacket: Thrifted, remixed.
Jumper: H&M, remixed. There’s a closely-fitting cami under this, also from H&M, and also remixed, for modesty and warmth. The skirt’s loose waistband meant I couldn’t rely on it to stay in place.
Necklace: Boots, remixed. Another unexpected, happy find.
Skirt: Joseph, thrifted.
Microfishnets: M&S, and into the bin with them, as I blew out the toe in one.
