This weekend I helped cleaning out some closets. Unfortunately however, they were not my own (even though they could REALLY use a good cleanse..). Quite the opposite actually: I went to Clean Closet, and took a few pieces off other people’s hands, all the while adding some lovely extra clutter to my own wardrobe. The things one does to help others… :)
But all kidding aside, don’t you just love these kinds of initiatives? Fashion victims getting together and swapping/sharing/selling second hand items. I sure do :) I love snooping through the racks, looking for that one special piece (or those few, ahum…) and discovering hidden treasures. Add to this mix that I got to meet some awesome people in real life for the first time and that Princess Misia and Vane Valentine were catering the event (hello, sweet & healthy yumminess!) and you have a recipe for success in my book. Kudos to Liesbeth from Candy & Treats for making it happen!
Now you might be wondering which babies I adopted and gave a second-hand home? (Or: which bargains I scored?) Have a peek into my treasure closet:
I especially love the (H&M) skirt! Made me think of Delft Blue tableware and I could immediately see myself skipping about on a sunny city trip in Holland. (Yes, fashion inspires my imagination, and I just tag along…) The jumpers are nice basics which I’m sure will get along quite good with the rest of my wardrobe (wore the striped one to work the very next day, something which the attentive few among you might have spotted in my instagram feed ;) ).
I got the collar and neon braid necklace at the booth of the pretty Eline from On High Heels. I assumed I would be wearing the necklace as a double bracelet, but combining it with the collar for this picture made me discover they work pretty well together! Am figuring out an outfit in which they will shine as a couple. :) By the way: my lovely colleague Déborah and I were both really saddened by our big feet and Eline’s small ones, as her shoe display was very nice! (Not to say, mouthwatering :) ) But the Zara sandals I found a few booths further consoled my sorrowed feet. As soon as the sun is peeping through, my toes will be doing some peeping of their own in these babies. :)
So this is as far as the results of this treasure hunt go. I think I kept it within reason, no? :) How about you ladies, scored any nice second hand items lately?
